    Question Looking for help for this older Rado watch

    Hello, got this Rado watch a few days ago and must day whoever owned it, wasn't very nice to it :), but would like to get some info on it. I don't see any Rado writing on the movement, not sure if that is normal or not. Also don't know what is the movement, don't know about the year of this watch, but I'm guessing 50s or 60s? Any info will be helpful.

    Movement = Felsa 692 Bidynator. You see this in many watches of different brands.

    Watch presumably from the 1950s

    But is it a genuine Rado?

    Dial, case = yes in my opinion. Else, just the rotor might have been replaced (original marked Rado) or the movement altogether.

    Be careful when taking the movement out. You might get particles of the luminous paint containing radium (radium 226) all over the place, which might get inside you body (inhaling or digestion, via the esophagus).
