Rado is proud to be known for a balanced collection which offers an equal range of watches for women as for men. It’s just one of the things that makes the manufacturer unique in the watch industry. And with the recently introduced, classic and minimalistic DiaMaster collection, RAdo is now showing its softer side – without compromising the hardness and durability of their high-tech materials.
Rado has chosen mother-of-pearls for the DiaMaster-dials – and diamonds. The dial ring formed by the diamonds is the centrepiece of the watch and is the perfect foil for the all-new moonphase indicator.
For the case, Rado has opted for the rose coloured material Ceramos. It is a scratch-resistant mix of 90% high-tech ceramic and 10% metal alloy, and its rich beautiful hue contrasts perfectly with the overall minimalist design of the wristwatches. The monobloc case is with only 5.3 mm in height fantastically slim and measures less than 38 mm in diameter. This makes the watches of the DiaMaster collection suitable for all female wrists, even the slimmest. All cases offer a pressure resistance of up to 3 bar.
All new DiaMaster models are powered by Swiss-made quartz movements; more precisely by the ETA 282.002. The DiaMaster moon phase is equipped with the ETA F05.841. Quartz movements ensure that the watches are slim and therefore they are also light and they offer a high accuracy as well.
The pearl effect stamped leather straps form an optical unit in combination with the case and the mother-of-pearl dial. Thanks to the Rado EasyClip system all straps can quickly and easily exchanged to personalise each DiaMaster for a truly unique look.
Nearly three decades after its inception, Raymond Weil`s iconic parsifal collection returns this autumn 2018. First launched in the early 90’s, this heritage range for him and her has been reimagined by the Swiss watchmakers, adding a modern twist in time for gifting season.
Inspired by Richard Wagner’s last opera, this revisited collection of men’s and ladies’ timepieces are the perfect accumulation of horology, classic aesthetics and accessible luxury. Raymond Weil shows in the new parsifal once again its deep attachment to its roots, and desire to preserve tradition as a source of inspiration – while, at the same time, refining the key design elements such as the curved outlines and cross link bracelet which have forged the identity of this symbolic collection. More key features include the gadroon bezel, classic two-tone steel and Roman numeral detailing. With a contemporary matte white dial, the crown is embellished with blue lacquer, adding a subtle pop of colour to the design.
Raymond Weil offers different versions of the new parsifal. The four men’s models all come with roman numerals, but different dials: black, blue or white with cases made from stainless steel and one in two-tone steel with a white dial. The ladies’ parsifal comes in six different versions: Some are equipped with diamonds instead of roman numerals and there are two watches sporting a beautiful mother-of-pearl dial. And, as if that wouldn’t be enough, Raymond Weil also offers two watches with diamond stubbed bezels. How could one not be wooed?
The parsifal comes with a diameter of either 41mm (the men’s version) or 30mm (the ladies’ version). Inside a swiss made quartz movement provides the necessary power. The ladies’ models only show hours and minutes, the men’s models also show seconds. Both versions also have a small date window at 3 o’clock.
The parsifal watches are not only a great to give for your significant other, they are also excellent for couples.
