The high-tech ceramic case features 3 Rado models – which each edition has only 499 timepieces.
  
Black high-tech polished ceramic  is a feature of Rado launched in 1986. , this model is a masterpiece of Rado style built around minimalist Diamaster case. The ceramic bracelet with 5 links mix shiny and matte links to create a raised impression.

The plasma was one of the Rado characteristics that distinguished the Diamaster collection. This new material is integrated in twenty in models of the collection, and especially on two “Skeleton” limited editions. Each ceramic piece used in Diamaster Skeleton are fully made of white ceramic:  the monobloc case, the crown and each small link bracelet. The components have a matt or polished finish. The plasma furnace finally bring the temperature to 20 000 ° C during the plasma process.

 The limited edition Rado Diamaster Skeleton incorporates a sapphire crystal on the front and on the back, to see the movement of these original timepieces.
