Our Take

As many may know, Rado never started as a watch company but rather only producing movements, that was until the 1950s, where they realised that they could simply do a better job. This 1980s Quartz is an example of that innovation, it’s a midsize watch and rather small compared to watches these days, so take note of the measurements, its only 27mm in diameter and 30mm from lug to lug, suitable for a man or women alike, with a smaller wrist. The gold plated case retains excellent definition with its unique rectangle shape and smooth bezel, it does show some plate wear. The steel back pops off and is in good condition, it bears the logo and model number #129.3311.2 s/n 19063129. The gold dial is slightly aged with diamante markers at the main points. It has gold sword-shaped hands and a date window at the 3 o’clock position all kept under a mineral crystal. The gold crown is signed with the logo. The watch is powered by a quartz movement and keeps perfect time. The original strap was replaced with a brown leather bracelet and it will fit a wrist of about 7.5” or 19cm approximately. The watch comes without the original box but will be accompanied by a gift box. Water-resistance is not guaranteed so please do not use it near water.

About Rado

Started life as Schlup & Co. in 1917, but started selling watches under the Rado brand in the 50s. Best known for the innovative design and use of revolutionary materials such as ceramic, giving the watches a unique look and feel.

The ceramic style was started when they incorporated it with the ‘Integral’ watch, although only in the bracelet, it took a bit longer for the ‘Ceramica’ to come along, which was the first watch to be made entirely with ceramic.

Rado watches are elegant, stylish and subtle, they don’t shout at you like other brands, but certainly, show that you have an appreciation of horology.
