Congrats on that New Green Horse!

Seems to be in nice condition and looks absolutely great with the matching 7-row NSA!
I own two New Green Horses, but the older date only version, I wish they would be in the same condition and with matching NSAs.
There´s a variation of this dial with ramb-markers at 1,2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10,11. I still have one of those dials, but for a GP version.
BTW, smaller scratches in acrylic crystals can be polished out easily.

Reg No. : 11834 and another no. 140211996.

This was the 2nd Rado I bought off the net. The seller accepted my offer of £150. I didn't realize what a good deal I'd got until I saw the NSA bracelet selling for £150 on its own!! :)

So a beauty and a bargain.
Looks like a nice AS 1859 in good condition.

Is there a trick of changing the date and day on the New Green Horse?? I think there might be but I;ve forgotten it!

Mine doesn't get too much wear anymore. I might move it along. If I want vintage steel I usually go for the Jetliner or the Starliner now.

Close to the bottom of this page there are day/date instructions for the "Daymasters".

I think my New Green Horse is the watch I part with last, just something about this watch I really love!
Thanx for the link Henry.
