gold-plated steel RADO crown

The base of the crown does not rest against the case. The length of its stem has been modified by previous owner so that it's longer than what it's supposed to be. This makes it easier to grasp the crown & adjust time & date. The mod isn't interfering with the movement so we did not think it was necessary to revert the stem/crown to its original form.

original RADO concave acrylic crystal

The upper right corner of the crystal has become slightly foggy due to some vertical scratches.

Swiss-made RADO 25 jewels automatic movement - cleaned, serviced & checked by our skilled technician

Movement is not shown with photos but guaranteed authentic! One has to pop the crystal, separate the crown, remove the hands & unhinge the dial to access the movement, which is a delicate process that can only be entrusted to our technician.
