Rado is celebrating the 60th anniversary of its classic DiaStar model with a reference reimagined by Zurich-based designer, Alfredo Häberli.

The DiaStar Original 60-Year Anniversary Edition features a slightly refined version of the 1962 DiaStar’s distinctive case shape, while Häberli has reduced the number of facets applied to the DiaStar’s sapphire crystal watch glass from 12 to six for a ‘pie-pan’ effect.

The new watch is made from Ceramos – a proprietary alloy formed of 90% titanium carbide – rather than the revolutionary tungsten carbide ‘Hardmetal’ used for the original, making it considerably lighter.

Rado presents the watch with interchangeable stainless steel Milanese mesh bracelet and grey fabric strap while inside is a gold-plated automatic R764 movement, displaying the date at the six o’clock position.

The 60-Year Anniversary model is joined by the day-date Diastar Original with linear brushed stripe dial, available in blue, grey and green.

The DiaStar Original 60-Year Anniversary Edition and Diastar Original are available now via Rado, priced £1,770 GBP (approximately $2,000 USD) and £1,320 GBP (approximately $2,000 USD) respectively.

Elsewhere in watches, Zodiac uses meteorite dial for the first time.
