Manufactured in Switzerland by the famous Rado Watch Company in the 1950's, this is a rare, collectible, vintage men's autowind wristwatch in excellent condition!
It features a brightly polished gold plated case that measures 32 mm in diameter excluding crown and lugs, (officially a man's watch in the 1950's but with today's fashion, could certainly be a popular vintage watch for both men and women). It surrounds a soft ivory dial that contrasts beautifully with black outlined red plume hour and minute hands, red tipped spear center sweep hand, and raised gold numbers and gold outlined red markers.
The dial is in very nice condition, a new hi-dome crystal has just been installed, and the Swiss 17 jewel, autowind incabloc movement is running well and keeping very good time.
Please remember that all autowind wristwatches must be hand wound or shaken for several minutes to apply pressure to the mainspring when wound down. After that as you wear it and are active, the watch will continue to wind the mainspring with the natural action of your wrist. This timepiece has a recessed crown and may be difficult for some people, like me, to wind so, in this case, it should be shaken initially once wound down.
It is antimagnetic with a stainless steel, screw-down back and has is matched with a high quality Kreisler, vintage, 17 mm, gold capped, stainless steel flex bracelet..
