A sporty, chic and modern timepiece that delivers accuracy on every level

Rado, the pioneering Swiss watchmaker, is paying tribute to its heritage, the first scratchresistant watch in the world – the DiaStar. In line with its quest for constant innovation, the company reveals the Rado D-Star Basel Special 2011, a sporty, chic and modern timepiece that delivers accuracy on every level.

A fusion of two materials
Combining high-tech ceramics with rubber, Rado has chosen two materials to reflect sport and design. Using a high-tech material for a sharp faceted ellipse case and for the clasp, Rado proves once again its undisputed knowledge of material and leadership in the high-tech industry. The black matt rubber bracelet is entirely integrated to the structured case which shows the high quality finishing usual to Rado watches.

Sportive precision in design
The Rado D-Star Basel Special has everything required for optimum performance without compromising on design. The unusually thin chronograph movement along with the tachymeter provide meticulous precision in a humble case. With its wide opening, the features of the dial are clear and simple to read. The date falls neatly into place at four thirty, carefully not overlapping the three counters. Superluminova enhances and intensifies the shape and colour of the white skeleton hands, red second hand and triangular indexes.
