This model is not very well known and is often mistaken for a sterling silver Classic.
Stamped polished chromed stainless steel, with a diagonal checkered pattern, not that different from the texture on the Alox Classic.
The scales are not a machined turned solid stainless steel like on the Broker and some others.
The logo on the top scale is embossed with a silver cross and a bright red enamel shield. There is an engraving panel on the bottom scale.
Not a true variation, but the Brushed Stainless Steel Classic (US Model No. 53099) is a very similar model - Replacing the handles with a brushed stainless steel variety and having a more matte red emblem.
The Diplomat was originally packaged with a soft cloth case, very similar to that provided with the Classic SD Sterling Series.
