The RADO NCC 101, its focal points being its wide tv case & stylized dial, embodies the space age vision of the year 2000, when everyone would be zooming in space traffic! Well, it's 2017 & we are still stuck in road traffic!

The RADO NCC 101 reminds us of the future that could have been & the future that may still be!

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

NCC is an acronym for "New Case Concept". The cases of RADO NCC Watches are an innovation in aesthetic & engineering design. They have flat backs, bolted down with screws & they house movements enclosed with blue rubber waterproofing!

NCC is a fictional designation for starships conceived within the hit futuristic space travel TV series Star Trek. 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 also have adapted Star Trek's NCC to identify its futuristic line of watches!
