Our Take

THE MASTER OF MATERIALS. Combining design and high-tech materials for watches that will stand the test of time. This 70’s ladies Rado quartz watch was probably one of the first as it was still relatively new back then. It is rather petite compared to today’s watches measuring only 19mm in diameter and 23mm from lug to lug. The gold plated case has a rectangular shape and is detailed around the lugs to go with the strap. The steel back pops in and is in good condition, it bears the old Rado logo, model number #133.9517.2 s/n H0350178. The gold textured dial is in an aged condition with gold markers all the way around and sword-shaped gold hands, and featuring again the old style Rado logo, all under a mineral crystal. The crown is a blue cabochon and appears to be slightly chipped. The watch is powered by a quartz movement and keeps perfect time. The original gold braided strap has been retained as it goes well with the watch but will only fit a wrist of about 6” or 15cm approximately. Suitable for a small wrist, or you can change the strap for a leather one in your length 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.
