Rado Diamaster7:53 am
Ceramic watches have been and will definitely continue to be the fashion statement of the era. With a lustre that is hard to miss and qualities that beat any traditional metal, Ceramic is set to rule the watch world. The demand in ceramic watches has increased steadily over the past few years and a lot of brands have cashed in on this changing behaviour. Rado is one of the most famous names when it comes to ceramic watches. From its inception in 1950’s till date, Rado has been known to craft exceptional time tellers with designs that are always a class apart. It is a modern and innovative brand that speaks of luxury in the most unique way.
It is interesting to note that Rado has been coming up with the most extraordinary and innovative designs in the past but if you consider their most recent watches, you will sense a shift to the more thematic, mass market designs that appeal to the public a lot better. This change has been well appreciated and has improved the brand image even further. Some of their most famous collections are the Hyperchrome, Diastar or their most recent Diamaster collection. Minimalistic, chic yet exquisite are what define the Diamaster collection. Launched by Rado brand ambassador Hrithik Roshan in August 2014 in India, the collection has managed to capture the essence of the brand perfectly.
The new face of Rado is characterised by its large open dial for easy readability and unobscured view. The watches come in a monobloc case made from ultra light high-tec ceramic Si3N4 and come in different variations of silver, black or two tone. The dial has metallic imprints similar to the bracelet to give the entire watch a contemporary appeal.
The design is subtle yet can go perfectly with your formal wear. The dial size varies from around 33mm to 45mm and the use of ceramic creates a sturdy yet stylish appeal. Ceramic being one of the most scratch resistant materials in the world is considered the perfect choice for watch case and Rado has proved that ceramic watches look super stylish as well.
The difference in these watches is particularly in the features. Some watches come with just a date display and some come with a chronograph feature in the sub dials. The bracelet link design is quite appealing as it balances the sporty and classy look perfectly. The few watches that are displayed here are definitely the best seller from the collection. For people who are not into ceramic bracelets, the Diamaster collection has some leather strap watch options as well. Their R14586155 has a very intriguing dial design with a small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’ clock. Powered with a high precision Swiss automatic movement, the Rado Diamaster collection is one of the most special and innovative timepieces from the brand. The experience of sporting a Diamaster leads you to believe that Rado has moved from its usual quirky designs to something classier and elegant, suitable for the masses. These watches not only give you the best of Swiss watchmaking skills but also help you stay true to the fashion forward generation you belong to.
