    Rado Companion - fake or genuine?

    Hi there,

    I have just bought a Rado Companion from Ebay. Could you advise me whether this one is genuine?

    The RADO stamp on the movement looks very bad.

    The dial looks like it was painted black later in its life.

    My God the lume dots are completely off the mark.

    The RADO aplied marker on the dial doesn't look right either. It should be much sharper.

    arachness...Hello. I do not know this watch, so this is but an opinion: it certainly makes me nervous, & I rather think laikrodukas and Seth Thomas are nudging you towards a Good Idea: this is not a Rado! Michael.

    Finland. Should I keep it for $100 or return it?

    Do you like and would wear the watch as is? If so keep it.

    I would also return it. I think it's already a major investment to pay for maintenance of a truly collectible vintage watch, so I certainly wouldn't get involved with a re-dialed franken/fake.

    Also, to be honest, I don't like the way the dial looks. Just my subjective opinion.
