Though I like this new series of models Rado D-Star 200 Diver course, but I still do not feel any sense, looking at them, even if they are pretty and interesting, but not modern.
What do I mean? And here’s what. For a long time, a characteristic feature of Rado watches was the use of ceramic materials. In fact, the brand was largely an innovator in the ceramic watch. They released their new diver collection a few years ago, and there was absolutely no ceramics in it!
Review of Rado D-Star 200
I’m not sure exactly how many color styles the watches will be available, but as long as there are blue and black trim models. D-Star 200 Diver also comes in the form of a model with three hands and a chronograph version. First Embodiment Rado D-Star 200 Automatic – 42 mm, and the chronograph Rado D-Star 200 Chronograph Automatic – 44 mm wide.
The model is made of steel, the shape of the watch is very unusual – retro-barrel-shaped. I really like this body design, in my opinion, it’s very original. The Rado brand claims that the deploying buckles on the bracelet will be made of titanium.
Rado D-Star 200: Bezel
Name hours D-Star 200 is connected with the fact that the watch is water resistant to 200 meters. They have a sapphire crystal. The ceramic element in the watch was just an insert in the rotating bezel. It is either blue or black, depending on the model. Ceramic details in the clock are only there, where additional resistance to scratches is needed.
Rado D-Star 200: Design
The design of the D-Star 200 is good, but it’s nothing revolutionary. The design of the model originated in 1960. Contrast colors made the watch very comfortable to perceive. I like that the reverse lens is installed on the dial, it will make it more convenient to read the date.
