Our Take

Rado is a unique brand in the way that they use their innovation in design and materials to come up with some of the worlds most unique watches. This 1970s piece is a classic, it’s midsize and originally designed for men but could suit a lady too who like a bigger watch, it measures 30mm in diameter and 38mm from lug to lug. The gold plated case has a square shape typical of the time and is sturdy and solid, unfortunately, there is some plate wear evident. The steel back pops in and is in good condition, it bears the logo, model number #448.7901.2. The black plain dial has been refurbished and has gold stick markers all the way around. It has elegant sweep seconds and a date/day window at the 3 o’clock position, all under an acrylic crystal in good condition. The crown is unsigned and may have been changed at some point. The watch is powered by a manual wind 2769 movement with 17 jewels and keeps good time. The strap has been replaced with a black leather bracelet and 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.
