RADO DiaMaster Ceramic Automatic Skeleton Limited Edition

Make no bones about it: this is a new Rado special

A skeleton in the collection is normally something you’d want to hide, but the Rado DiaMaster Skeleton Limited Edition is far too exciting to be locked away out of sight.  

Brand new for 2014 Rado has produced three striking limited editions for the mechanical watch enthusiast who also needs the comfort and scratch-resistance of high-tech ceramic.  

Rado’s groundbreaking monobloc high-tech ceramic case features on all three models – each of which is limited to 499 individually numbered pieces.  

Polished black high-tech ceramic is a stylish Rado staple since we first started working with ceramic in 1986. Smooth, shiny and incorporating the minimalistic DiaMaster case, this is a masterclass in Rado style.  The five link ceramic bracelet uses both shiny and matt links to add texture, depth and complexity to the equation.  

Plamsa has been one of Rado’s buzzwords for the DiaMaster collection and this breakthrough material features on 20 models in the whole DiaMaster collection including two of the new Skeletons. Each individual ceramic piece used to create the full plasma DiaMaster Skeleton – the monobloc case, the crown and each tiny bracelet link  - starts life as white high-tech ceramic. The pieces are fully finished to be either matt or polished. The pieces are then placed in the plasma oven where they reach up to 900°C during the plasma process, and where the warm grey metallic colour emerges from the inside out.  

Technically complex in construction yet minimalistic in design, the plasma version with black leather strap adds an element of futuristic vintage to the collection.  

Whichever way you look at it the Rado DiaMaster Skeleton Limited Edition will show you what it’s made of, with sapphire crystal front and back giving a clear view of the movement that beats at the very heart of this watch.  

Make no bones about it, Rado has created a unique ceramic limited edition that is sure to make a big impression. And for those who like to have a story behind their watch, this latest Rado speaks volumes.
