    Question How is a Rado?

    Thinking of getting the wife a Rado watch...probably from the Original series. I've never had a Rado so I don't know if it's a good watch. Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks

    I give them

    Had a few vintage purple gazelles and recently sold a new diastar. The diastar was real nice, day date at 6, beautiful case, and the super nice solid link bracelet. And yes, I wish I didn't sell it.


    Understeer is when you hit the wall with your front end. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with your rear end. Horsepower is how hard you hit the wall. Torque is how far you move the wall.

    Is it true that the hardmetal that is used to make the Diastar/Original strap n case is difficult to get scratched?

    I did not own the ceramic version but from what I've read and seen the ceramic Rados are VERY scratch resistant, basically looking new after years of daily wear.

    Check out the Sintra Multifunction.
    Awesome tech in a very elegant and scratch proof watch!
    It is on my wifes X-mas list.
    We checked out almost the whole range. The Original felt quite clumsy on her wrist.

    Acually, my Dad bought a ceramic Rado years ago in Mexico and wears it to swim, ski, jet ski, cut bricks, cut trees..and it still looks great! Although you can scratch the ceramic and if you do....it's there for good!

    Re: How is a Rado?

    I often thought that a watch made of "high-tech ceramic" should also have a high-tech movement. Although I have no idea what constitutes a "high-tech movement," I think it'd be nice if Rado put an atomic solar-quartz movement in a ceramic case like Junghans did (w/o the rubber).
