The Rado V10K Watch - It's Hard But Is It Soft On The Eye?

Abstract:
The Rado V10K can claim to be the world's hardest watch - only a genuine diamond can scratch its casing. However, the world's hardest watch doesn't come cheap but has Rado been able to successfully marry hardness with practicality and pleasing design lines?

Rado is a Swiss company and has been making watches since 1917. Rado produced the world's first scratchproof watch in the 1960s. The watch was called the Rado DiaStar. Rado wanted to make the world's hardest watch, so it went into collaboration with specialists in nanotechnology to perfect the use of coating the watch casing with crushed diamond. After some years of research, Rado perfected a way to coat a homogenous 100% diamond layer onto hard metal components. Soon after, the Rado V10K was released.
