At the end of the 1950s the head of design for Rado, Marc Lederray, presented a completely new idea.
Lederray was particularly unhappy with the fact that only after a few days, watches would have scratches and small scuff marks thus needing to be polished.
An extraordinary new model was born, having an unusual shape and using unconventional materials.
The first scratch-proof watch in the world wasn't immediately met with great enthusiasm.
It took complete faith in the project in order to be successful, along with perseverance and conviction.
What the watch making sector wasn't aware of was that this new watch, which didn't follow the norm, was about to unveil another.
The success was unstoppable. The Rado DiaStar, with its special design and radiant brilliance, would progressively make record sales.
The one in the attached photos is a limited edition of 300 from 1994 with a more modern ETA 28360-2 movement, a solid steel bracelet (as opposed to the "folded" links of the original), with titanium clasp with safety button.
Case measuring 35 mm, wrist 200 mm, 2 extra links.
Another unusual thing about this model is the sapphire crystal, with longitudinal facets rather than radial, like the original.
