    Identification of a vintage Rado Golden Horse

    I bought this on ebay not too long ago and was just wondering what I really had. Can anyone confirm or deny the authenticity of the case it's in? I just had the movement serviced and that was confirmed genuine but the watchmaker had insinuated that it may have been transplanted into this case.

    Regardless, it is a fun piece and I'm going to wear it. Just curious as to what it is!

    That looks authentic. It should have an ETA-2878 inside and I would guess it is from the mid-eighties, or possibly even newer.

    If you want to know for sure contact Rado and include the pictures.

    Awesome, thank you! I've read about Rado's not so great record keeping so I wasn't sure how far I would get with them but I'll certainly give it a shot.

    You watch is relatively recent. I would say that there is a good chance they have info on it.
