Rado D-Star 200 Review

Rado D-Star 200 Dive Watch Review
  Rado has released a new diver for 2012, the D-Star 200. A nice and simple dressier diver for a change of pace. In the world of divers where the modo lately seems to be “go big or go home”, Rado delivers a great dressier sport watch. Coming in at a very manageable size of 42mm and a respectable 200m of water resistance, it will wear nicely. The dial is very clean for easy reading and is further enhanced by a ceramic external bezel. Ceramic has become a lot more popular as it is not prone to scratching and looks fantastic. The watch has that vintage Rado throw back vibe about it, with the lack of visible lugs and case shape. There is an ETA 2824-2 automatic movement powering the D-Star 200, with a nice exhibition case back as well. 
  If you like dive watches that can still be worn under a shirt, this should fit the bill. Rado generally offers a lot of watch for the money and the D-Star 200 should be no different.

Pros - New release, ceramic bezel

Consideration - Some feel exhibition case backs do not belong on divers
