Rado DiaMaster Grande Seconde

Be the master of your time

Time is precious, something we often feel is in short supply. With the new Rado DiaMaster Grande Seconde on your wrist, however, you can be sure that every second counts and you won’t miss a beat. A monobloc high-tech ceramic case houses a large open dial presenting two overlapping sub-dials, one for hours and minutes and one for seconds.

Gleaming like a thousand suns

Presenting the new Rado DiaMaster Diamonds

Diamonds, gold and ceramic gleam like a thousand suns in three new timepieces that look and feel exceptionally luxurious. The Rado DiaMaster collection may be known for its large open dial and pared down design, but these new models are dressed to the nines and ready to celebrate.
