This particular RADO Green Horse is the predecessor of the huge number of Green Horse variants produced by RADO.

Most notable are the painted RADO logos/emblems in their early phases on its unusual pie-pan dial. Early logos/emblems are also observed on its crown & case back.

Also worth mentioning, is the solid core of its movement, no longer found in succeeding RADO movements.
