This Musketeer IV is one of the watches featured, Rado is known for its unconventional & adventurous designs. It comes with a faceted crystal;day-date calendar, twin bars mounted on its front case and a highly-decorated face. The case is made from stainless steel and embossed with the Rado logo, the Rado tri-seahorse, serial numbers, and a “WATER-SEALED” symbol but please note we cannot guarantee its waterproof effectiveness since it is a vintage watch and has not been pressure sealed. More than 40 years ago, owning a Rado like this was considered a status symbol.

The Whale logo first appeared around 1966 – 67 but does not signify the ‘SEA KING’ model. The Whale indicates that the timepiece should be waterproof. (Again it’s a vintage watch, therefore please do not test this fact!)

According to some, the Whale logo was used as a tribute to the Whalers of Sag Harbour, Home of the Bulova Watch Case factory which came out in 1966, it coincidentally marks the 100 year anniversary of a Whaling Festival of Sag Harbour which was where the Bulova factory was situated. Food for thought there.

Movado’s most famous watch is the Museum edition designed in 1947 by Nathan George Horwitt, Bauhaus-influenced artist.  The simple design of the watch dial defined by a solitary dot at 12, symbolizes the sun at high noon. This dial was also selected for the permanent design collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1960, which makes this watch the first watch dial awarded for a distinction.

We have several different models available HERE.
