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!
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
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
RADO stainless steel crown
clear original RADO acrylic crystal
original RADO stainless steel bracelet; some links have tool marks, especially the links nearest to the clasp (not visible in photos due to light exposure but they are visible in actual)
RADO stainless steel outer clasp, where the lip extends outward with the RADO symbol logo - again, another rare characteristic!
RADO stainless steel inner clasp
stainless steel case back embossed with RADO name logo, RADO symbol logo, "SWISS", "ALL STAINLESS STEEL" & "WATERPROOF"
