This here is an all stainless steel & all original RADO Manhattan "Wildcard" or RADO Manhattan "II", nicknamed as such by RADO collectors because of its geometric case (most Manhattans are square/rectangular)!

Other distinguishing features are its mirror or reflective face & the odd arrangement of the markers: notice how they are mounted in 2 rows, instead of scattered around.

geometric stainless steel case

mirror or reflective dial or face in fair condition

The visible area is well-preserved but its edges have some rust (can only be seen when the dial is extracted from the case).

Due to age, the surface has areas where the texture is uneven - the same happens to very old mirrors.

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 back, then separate the crown & unhinge the back from the dial to gain access to the movement, which is a delicate process that can only be entrusted to our technician.
