Please help to recognize this Rado?
I found this beauty amazingly running normally without aging but little scratches near anchor logo on dial, no corrosion on hands and markers and little scratches on glass.
Very hard to find information about this beautiful item.
thanks

Hi!

Congrats on that nice find! The Rado Minister is a very rare bird, this is just the second one I´ve seen inner many years. The other one is the green dialed one in the register on mission-rado.de.
I have just a very little info for you. From what I can see on your pics, it s looks to be all original and in reasonable condition. The 12120 on the back is the reference number, which dates the watch before 1972, when the 8-digit reference numbers(xxx.xxxx.x) came. I assume it´s from 1970/71 with a nice ETA 2789 day/date inside.
You should have it serviced(cleaning, oiling, adjusting) if you want to wear it regularly. Little scratches on acrylic crystals can be polished out easily with a peace of cork and some chrome polish. Nice that the original crystal with the little anchor is still present. Enjoy it and wear it in health!

I´ve put the two threads together as they´re about the same watch.


Mit freundlichem Gruß/With best regards
Mike
