Product DetailRado is a “High Range” brand of the Swiss watch conglomerate Swatch Group. Schlup & Co. was founded in Lengnau by brothers Fritz, Ernst, and Werner Schlup in 1917. Founded in the home of their parents, the factory expanded over the next 25 years to become one of the largest watch movement makers in Switzerland. Schlup began selling watches using the Rado brand around 1953, though it had been registered as early as 1928. The name meant “wheel” in Esperanto and was only used in international markets, beginning in South America and Asia before reaching Switzerland in 1963. Today Rado is known for high-tech materials like ceramic (descended from the DiaStar) and the seahorse and anchor logos indicating waterproof and automatic watches, respectively.

This is a vintage used watch. It has lived a life before you, so you should not expect it to be new and flawless. If you want a flawless new watch, please do not buy this. If you want a piece of history in the form of a nice vintage piece, or possibly a dated inscription, then this may be right for you. Because most vintage watches being offered are between 30-70 years old, small imperfections, scratches, and wear are to be expected
Water resistance is not guaranteed on vintage or pre-owned watches unless otherwise stated in the listing
Please note that all pictures are taken on the macro setting. This makes even the slightest imperfections, shadows during photography, and specks of dust appear much more prominent even though they are often not visible without magnification
A careful shopper who takes the time to study the photos, reads the entire description, and asks pertinent questions is our best customer
You will be pleasantly surprised and receive many compliments when wearing your watch. There is nothing that draws attention quite like a stunning watch
Because older vintage wristwatches were made smaller than watches made today, men or women can wear this and would look fabulous on your wrist
All of our watches have been tested and serviced if needed. We time all watches for at least 48 hours prior to listing and 12 hours prior to shipment. If it doesn't maintain acceptable accuracy, or function properly, we won't ship it and the buyer will receive a refund
