Hard to Scratch... Hard to Photograph... Hard to Find... Easy to Own...
For 20+ years I have had this RADO DiaMaster Diver. It has proven to be a pretty good companion in a few areas...
First of all, the Tungsten Carbide Bezel and Bracelet have gone all this distance without a scratch! The material is really incredible.
The one time I thought I did scratch it, I was in error. It ended up taking a layer of aluminum off the small boat I was in and having it stick to the edge of the bracelet. I got home and worked on it with my fingernail for a while and it all came off without a trace. WOW! I only wish my RO could repel scratches like this one.
Next, while I am no real fan of Quartz movements, the ETA in this one goes for well over 7 years between battery changes.
And lastly, this thing shines like the mirror ball in a disco. If you want to attract attention at a distance, this one does it.
One big downside is the weight. Hard Metal weighs a lot. While Ceramics are lighter, I have not seen them provide a chrome-like finish the way T-C can.
In all, I have 3 RADO's and they are great daily-wearer / tool watches.
All the best... HEO.
