The 1960s was a time of creative freedom, which abounded in unusual, futuristic designs – including watches. One of them, Rado DiaStar, is now back in a refreshed form.replica watches
The sixth decade of the twentieth century is a period when many companies focused on modern solutions, technologies, materials and design unfettered by any restrictions. The Rado company also fits in with this thesis – in 1962 the Swiss presented the DiaStar model, advertised as the first scratch-resistant watch. The goal was achieved by using
a material called Hardmetal,
i.e. tungsten carbide fired in a furnace at high temperatures, for the construction of the envelope.
When subjected to temperature changes, the powder changes and becomes a solid, which is several times harder than steel. Harder, but also more brittle. Therefore, in order to reduce the risk of breakage,
a fairly massive case
has been designed
with a characteristic and futuristic
(you can boldly refer to it as such today) shape. The housing was topped with sapphire glass,
which at that time generated considerable costs and was rare. Now, after 60 years, Rado has decided to recall the DiaStar model and prepared 4 new references for its birthday.
Rado DiaStar Original
Three of the new DiaStars have received a bezel made of glossy Ceramos – a composite based on titanium carbide. The material has the hardness of ceramic, but looks like metal when polished. At the same time, it is light and has a high scratch resistance. In addition, Rado added a steel case back, lace and a polished case. The latter is 38 mm wide, 45 mm high, 12.1 mm thick and has a water resistance class of 100 meters.
which thanks to vertical facets reflects the light falling on the dial in an interesting way.
Rado will offer the DiaStar Original model in 3 color options of the dial: gray, green and blue. The design of the dial features a logo, automatic and DiaStar inscriptions, and a large vertical window at the bottom that allows you to read the day and date. The caliber R764, an automatic winding mechanism based on C07.111 (Powermatic 80), is responsible for the correct operation of the watch. The Werk has a Nivachron spring which makes it more resistant to magnetic fields.replica watches
The Rado DiaStar will be delivered on a
steel bracelet with H-shaped links. The price for one piece is set at PLN 7,020.

Alfredo Häberli is responsible for the last of the new products – the DiaStar Original 60-Year Anniversary Edition. The Swiss-Argentine designer decided to decorate the bezel with a radiant brush. The unusual, sapphire crystal on which each of the 6 facets symbolizes one decade of DiaStar’s existence is also striking.
The design has also changed the dial – it is metal and circularly brushed. At its edges, small holes are drilled (hourly indices), and one day / date window is divided into two,
of which the slimmed one, responsible for the day fills up over the course of the week,
and the reduced, round date display is separated and composed a little lower. The hour and minute hands also have a different shape. The whole thing looks “cosmic” and more jewelry than the serial version. It is also slightly thicker – it is 12.3 mm.
The fact that the DiaStar Original 60-Year Anniversary Edition is a special edition is reminiscent of the engraving on the caseback “DIASTAR ORIGINAL 60-YEAR ANNIVERSARY EDITION; DESIGN AFLREDO HÄBERLI ”. The watch will go on sale on a Milanese bracelet, with a system for easy replacement with a textile strap (included). The price on the tag is PLN 9,600.
Anya Taylor-Joy is the ambassador of Jaeger-LeCoultre
The 26-year-old Anya Taylor-Joy,
whose popularity was ensured by the series “The Queen’s Gambit”,
has just joined the group of ambassadors of the Le Sentier manufacture. The photos announcing the beginning of the cooperation show the Reverso Duetto Small model on the actress’s wrist.
Brands still use “known and liked” to promote their products. It is no different with watches. From our home backyard, it is enough to mention Iga Świątek, who recently – as the first Polish woman – became a Rolex ambassador. The only thing that has changed over the decades is that the people-icons that were once recognizable all over the world (e.g. Steve McQueen) are giving way to young people, who nowadays are gaining popularity much faster and remain on the wave not only thanks to their day of competitions, but also thanks to the activity in social media.
One of them is Anya Taylor-Joy, an Argentine-British actress and model whose fame (and the Golden Globe) was provided by Netflix’s hit series “The Queen’s Gambit”. The picture tells the story of an extremely talented girl who mastered the game of chess. The fact that even in Poland, chess clubs experienced a real renaissance for some time, and the purchase of chess was a miracle (I know what I am saying – I had to work a lot to buy a gift) proves how big an impact this production had on teenagers. replica watches
Panerai Luminor Due Luna [availability, price]
The line of smaller and more elegant Panerai Luminor
Due watches has been enriched with a series of models with moon phase indication.
Luminor Due, shown in 2016,
was supposed to be a bit more “delicate”
watch – in contrast to the regular version,
associated with a massive,
military tool-watch for an above-average wrist. Over time, Due has shrunk to a size of 40 or even 38 mm. And it was the last of these that served as the basis for the Luna series, i.e. with the indication of the phases of the moon.
The size of the Due Luna model (and the composition of the dial) makes it possible to say that this PAM is elegant. The Swiss prepared it in 4 variants. In the first,
a polished steel case is
juxtaposed with a navy blue sunburst dial and a blue alligator leather strap. The second is
with a white dial and a pink leather strap. In the third,
the strap was replaced with a steel bracelet with links
shaped like a lace protection characteristic of the Luminor line. The last option is a Goldtech case, a blue alligator leather strap, and a mother-of-pearl dial.replica watches
While in the first three references, Panerai used a dial with a sandwich structure, i.e. “Sandwich-dial”
(the bottom layer is covered with a luminous substance,
and holes were cut in the top layer through which it can be seen),
this was not possible in the case of mother of pearl – hence the classic, applied indices. Luminor Due Luna Madreperla is also the most elegant model and intended rather for a woman’s wrist. In turn, the variant with a blue dial will certainly work well on many men’s wrists.
The composition of the dial is the same in all options – at There is a small seconds dial on the opposite side, and on the opposite side – at 3 – Moon phase disc, partially visible through a cutout in the dial. The disc is made of solid, 24-carat gold,
with attention to detail – pay attention to the representation
of the structure of our Earth satellite. The sky around it has a grainy structure with “stars” engraved in it. replica watches
