    Men's or Women's (Rado Green Hose)?

    This is my first day at WUS! Recently got interested in watches, so, know very little about them. I bought a Rado green horse with 2872 mvt from ebay recently, liked the watch. But when I tried to put that on, felt smaller on my wrist. It's 35 mm without crown. I know the question seems stupid but I am puzzled. Can anyone please tell me whether its men's or women's?
    And one more thing, the anchor on the logo doesn't move freely, need a strong shake to move that. Is it a fault of the watch?
    Thanks in advance.

    Men's or Women's (Rado Green Hose)?

    Welcome to the forum, 35mm is about right for a man's watch of the era, I can't help with the anchor thingy but someone will know

    35mm is a nice big man watch and in the 30's a man watch could be as small as 27mm so this is huge. In the 80's they generally shrunk again and we also got the unisex watches that were down to 30mm wide as thin sleek watches was all the rage. Now days watches are just to big and look stupid on the wrist.

    By coincidence I just finished fixing up a few watches spanning the late 70's to the mid 90's.
