Celebrating the Lunar New Year for many of us is to have something new. Okay, this is really one of my favourite traditions! Over the past month I’ve been excited over the window dressings that not only include hearts and flowers for Valentine’s, but also the recognition of the Lunar New Year. It’s not uncommon to treat ourselves to a new piece of clothing or jewellery. A timepiece is a favourite gift for many as well and RADO DiaMaster caught my attention not only for style but for a truly meaningful New Year’s gift.
Auspicious for ushering in the Year of the Dog, the RADO DiaMaster’s 1314 adorns the case back on these particular plasma models. Similar to the word “forever” used in Chinese culture in relation to love and an ideal timekeeper to stand the test of time.
