The RADO NCC series of watches is RADO's prime design entry into the retro futuristic space-age era. It is a testimony of RADO's reputation as the maker of the "Watches of the Future" or the "Watches of 2000".

Here is an awesome blast-from-the-past RADO NCC print advertisement for your appreciation & reference!

The watch shown is the RADO NCC 101, a variation of the NCC series! The shape of the case & the design of the dial are similar.

NCC is a fictional designation for starships conceived within the hit futuristic space travel TV series Star Trek. NCC is not an acronym - it doesn't really stand for anything. Rather, it's a combination of a ship prefix "NS" ("Nuclear Ship"), & the Soviet Union acronym "CCCP" to show that the U.S.A. & Russia had to work together to establish the Starfleet!

RADO may have adapted Star Trek's NCC to identify its futuristic line of watches, which definitely makes sense - the concept of RADO being the watch of the future & Stark Trek being the show of the future just click perfectly together, like 2 pieces of a puzzle!

The wide tv case & stylized dial of the RADO NCC 303 represents the year 2000, which everyone envisioned then as the year when we would all be zooming in space traffic! Well, it's 2012 & we still find ourselves stuck in road traffic! In any case, this watch reminds us of the future that could have been & the future that may still be!
