The new Rado D-Star Collection is nothing if not comprehensive. There are no less than 28 different models that make up the collection.
Like many other new ranges these days, the new Rado D-Star collection has more than a few distinctive hints of its roots. For example through hands moving underneath the large indexes. A symbolic anchor enhances all models of the range, which integrates a selection of modern movements and three futuristic materials – high-tech ceramic, Ceramos® and carbon diffused steel. And the sharp, angular lines of the striking case and hallmark black dial are set to contribute to its status – as vintage Rado’s are still a hot favourite on Ebay.
The Rado D-Star (black high-tech ceramic, XL)
Part of the new range includes this svelte black high-tech ceramic watch with an automatic movement teasingly punctuated by the luminous white hands and indexes. It celebrates the unique shape of the range with over-sized dimensions. The watch is powered by the faithful ETA 2824 movement with 38 hours power reserve.
