    Opinions on this RADO Purple Horse

    I found this watch for 110 dollars. This this very alike one has a movement that looks like diferent.


    What do you think about the little that can be seen of the movement? Looks like there are some marks on the left golden gear... Thanks!

    All I can say is that the movement is from this - very extensive! - calibre family:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: AS 1713

    ...the exact ID depending on beat rate, etc., whereas the one in the link looks like this one:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: ETA 2472

    I do know that Rado used AS movements earlier on and later switched to ETA movements so it may just be a "generation" thing.
