Let me say straight up, this is not a certified HAQ. However all contemporaneous accounts indicate that its's not bad, and I couldn't find a better place to park this note.
As of last night this funky little chunk of quartz is incoming.
It is a Rado Accustar, of which only 300 were made in 2002. They were one of a series of limited-editions Rado produced to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Rado name. (The actual watchmaking company is much older).
I expect this to be my regular day-to-day watch. I normally wear my 2007 Golden Horse reissue, but the Accustar replaces the plexi with sapphire and the leather with a bracelet, so it should be more hard wearing.
This watch has the scratchproof tungsten-carbide bezel typical of Diastars of the period, along with a unique textured face (which simply does not photgraph well) and a number of other design features. However, for the purpose of this thread, the feature of note is the ETA Cal. 205.911 auto-quartz ("kinetic") movement. The movement, which is interchangeable with a regular ETA 2824 movement, can also be hand wound.
This variant of the Autoquartz movement is heavily gilded and decorated. It is also extremely accurate.
