    Question Rado vs. Oris vs. Seiko SPB001

    Having done my share of research, I have narrowed the field of watches for my next purchase. All three watches being in the same price bracket from ADs here, which one do you believe is the best taking into consideration style, build, and performance?

    Rado Original 'Classic'


    Oris Miles Rectangular Day Date



    Seiko Premier


    Of course, it would be swell if some that has any of the watches could chip in their view through actual ownership.

    Appreciated

    From my point of view it is impossible to compare these watches because they are to different from each other, the only they have in common is that they are wrist watches
    Seen from a historical angle I´d go for the Rado. Regarding technical aspects: Seiko. Lookinf fro a dress watch ? Oris.

    I own the Rado and owned the Oris in the Touneau case though.

    I would recommend the Rado, based on case design , very comfortable, and the bracelet is top notch.

    The Oris is nice and I like the exibition back with Redrotor, but we wear watches dial side up

    Rado for me

    As usual, Mike is the first one to answer the call; for that, I am very appreciative. Yes, I do realize that the three watches are vastly different, but they are more similar than not in terms of function. As well, for Tony Duranio, if you can recall, could you please share the time keeping you got from the Oris and the accuracy you are getting from the Rado right now?

    Thanks

    I wear the Rado for dressier occasions, so I have not measured the timing on it as it is worn sparingly. The Oris ran +7 to 10 seconds per day. Very impressive IMHO.
    Sorry I could not be more help on the Rado

    Don't worry about it; I just wanted to see if your example was as accurate as the Timezone review claimed it to be (2 secs regardless of position) as one example is not enough evidence to be applied to all the Rado Originals. But I thank you for your help; it has been very informative. By the way, that hardmetal bezel is pretty awesome, right?
