This watch is in NEAR MINT condition, according to the Timezone Grading System: Showing very light signs of wear. Faint scratches on the case, bezel, bracelet or buckle are visible to the naked eye. Completely original in every way - The watch is working perfectly, keeping good time & needs nothing. 93-97%

Though the dial on this watch speaks for its age, I identified this watch as "near mint" mainly because it retains all parts from its original manufactured state.

stainless steel case

stainless steel bezel

satin white dial or face; has aged resulting to faint spotting & craquelure, which looks rather nice, in my opinion.

Note that even the great Renaissance masters skillfully reproduced craquelure into their masterpieces as finishing touch - the craquelure on this dial is a natural occurence aquired with age!

rado president monorex mechanical date watch

steel hands

silver bar hour markers - embossed onto the surface of the dial itself, a rare characteristic!

date display window framed in steel at 3 o'clock

rado president monorex mechanical date watch

black RADO symbol logo, RADO name logo & "PRESIDENT" at 12 o'clock

black "21 JEWELS" & "MONOREX" at 6 o'clock, another rare characteristic because most RADOs don't advertise their inclusion of Monorex in their movements - Monorex is a shock protection system designed for the screw balance of mechanical movements
