    Foren-Beitrag von mike184 im Thema Rado 14000

    Hi Jürgen!

    Ein schöner alter Chronograph von ca.1958 bis 1962 mit handaufgezogenem Landeron 248 Chronographenwerk.
    Mehr Info zum Werk auf meiner HP.
    Mit dem oberen Drücker wird der Stoppvorgang gestartet, mit dem unteren gestoppt. Der zentrale Sekundenzeiger zeigt die Sekunden an, der rechte Totalisator ( das kleine Zifferblatt) die Minuten bis max. 45. Links ist eine kleine Sekunde.

    Leider ist das gute Stück schon ziemlich angegriffen ich habe mal ein Bild des gleichen Modells in gutem Zustand angefügt.
    Falls du ihn noch besitzt - interessiert wäre ich trotzdem.

  • Frage zu Rado HerrenarmbanduhrDatum22.03.2017 18:22
    Foren-Beitrag von mike184 im Thema Frage zu Rado Herrenarmbanduhr

    Hi Mario!

    Ein sehr schönes Stück aus den späten 1950ern/frühen 1960ern.
    11600 ist die Referenznummer, der Modellname ist Gold Star, ist aber nicht auf dem Zifferblatt aufgedruckt.
    Die Uhr ist in der Tat viel zu schade für den Goldankauf, ein Sammler wird dir immer mehr bezahlen.
    Zumal der Goldwert nicht allzu hoch ist - das meiste wiegt das Uhrwerk und das Gehäuse ist nicht sehr massiv.
    Und dann muss man ja noch den Goldpreis für das Gehäusegewicht durch 1.000 teilen und mit 585 malnehmen, da es ja 14 kt Gold ist
    (= 585/1.000 reiner Goldanteil).
    Wenn du sie noch besitzt und verkaufen willst, mache ich dir gern ein Angebot.

  • Hi!

    Eine Voyager mit Handaufzug ist mir nicht bekannt, da ist mit Sicherheit ein Automatikwerk drin.
    Die von Rado verbauten kann man aber auch (im Gegensatz zu manchen japanischen) mit der Hand aufziehen.

    Dazu nimmt man die Krone zwischen Daumen und Zeigefinger und dreht diese im Uhrzeigersinn, indem man den Daumen nach vorn und den Zeigefinger nach hinten bewegt (wie beim Einstellen der Uhrzeit, nur eben nicht mit gezogener Krone). Nach ca. zwanzig solchen Drehbewegungen sollte dann die Feder genügend gespannt sein - den Rest erledigt die Automatik.

    Wenn du die Uhr regelmäßig tragen willst, solltest du sie aber mal zu einem Uhrmacher bringen, damit ein Service gemacht wird. Alle 5 bis 10 Jahre braucht sie frisches Öl, sonst laufen die Lager ein und Reparaturen sind nicht billig.

    Foren-Beitrag von mike184 im Thema = Rado Taschenuhr =

    Hi Zig!

    Bei der Taschenuhr handelt es sich um eine sogenannte Frackuhr, es gab sie verchromt und vergoldet.
    Mir sind zumindest zwei Varianten bekannt, mit rundem und eckigem Bügel über dem Aufzug, wobei der runde Bügel
    wohl die spätere Version ist

    Eine vergoldete Version mit rundem Bügel ist im deutschen Rado-Katalog von 1962 gelistet, der befindet sich in der Bildergalerie.
    Ein Bild einer verchromten Version mit rundem Bügel habe ich angehängt.
    Falls deine einen runden Bügel hat, dürfte sie also aus den 1960ern stammen.
    Verbaut ist ein Armbanduhrwerk, ein AS 1130, ein sogenanntes Wehrmachtswerk, sehr robust und zuverlässig und fein bearbeitet.


    Sie wurden zumindest in den 1950ern und 1960ern gebaut. In welchen Stückzahlen ist mir unbekannt, aber es werden sicher nicht
    allzu viele gewesen sein, denn man sieht sie extrem selten.
    Die Aussage, Rado habe nie Taschenuhren gebaut, ist also schlicht falsch. Die meisten Rado-Mitarbeiter von heute wissen nichts
    bis wenig über die eigene Firmengeschichte - Schlup & Co, woraus Rado hervorgegangen ist, hat 1917 mal als Produzent von
    Taschenuhrwerken angefangen.

    Foren-Beitrag von mike184 im Thema President de luxe

    Hi ting!


    I have no data about the reference 11660 but it´s confirmed as President De Luxe by a Rado reference list I have in my archive as facsimile.
    Nice that the case is in a good shape, the quality of Rado´s gold plated cases of that time is very well and they were generous with the gold.
    Nice extra to have found a year of birth watch.

    AS-movements are no ETA-derivates, both were producers of movements at that time. In 1978, both companies melted and went on under the name ETA. But every good old school watchmaker should be able to service this movement. Find enclosed a technical information about the AS 1590/1, which is nearly the same as the 1580(just the date feature is missing at the 1580). That should help your watchmaker.

    Foren-Beitrag von mike184 im Thema President de luxe

    Hi & welcome, tinger!


    That´s a very nice President De Luxe with an unusual dial design - to be honest, the first one I see with this dial.

    It has one of the first bayonet case backs, still with "Patent demanded" instead of the patent number on it(ATTENTION! The bayonet case back is to be turned 30° only at opening/closing).
    That dates the watch to 1957/58. The moving anchor logo is already present, I assume an AS(Adolf Schild) automatic movement inside, probably an AS 1580. Is there any reference number(11xxx) on the case, maybe inbetween the lugs?

    If you want to wear it regularly, you should have it serviced by an old school watchmaker(COA - cleaning, oiling, adjusting). If the oil is empty, the movement will be finished in a while.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    Hi!


    There´s an interesting Exacto in the bay, IMHO from the 1930s and not 1940s as the seller states.
    Nice and interesting Art Deco-case, manual winded movement, already shock proof with date and digital subsecond:

    Would be interesting to see what´s inside.
    The price is a bit ambitious, here´s the link.

    Foren-Beitrag von mike184 im Thema Alte Rado von Großvater

    Hi Armin!


    Schöne alte Rado, scheint noch in sehr gutem Zustand zu sein.
    Sieht von den Fotos her 100% authentisch aus, Acrylglas war zu der Zeit völlig normal.
    Vom Alter her dürfte sie aus Ende 1950er/Anfang 1960er stammen.
    Vergoldetes Gehäuse mit Bajonettboden und im Inneren mit Sicherheit ein hochwertiges AS 1701 Automatikwerk mit Datum.
    ich habe einen deutschen katalog von 1962, da ist sie mit einem geringfügig abweichenden Zifferblatt abgebildet(C, rechte Seite).
    Link zum Bild in Originalgröße

    Wenn du sie tragen möchtest, solltest du ihr einen Service beim Uhrmacher gönnen, dabei wird das Werk gereinigt, geölt und justiert. Für ein paar € mehr kann dann auch gleich ein neues Acrylglas montiert werden. Mehr Infos zum beweglichen Anker und zum Bajonettboden findest du hier.#
    Einen günstigen Uhrmacher für den Service findest du hier.

    HI!


    here´s your pic:



    It´s a Rado N19 with a bad refinished dial, the "9" was fixed the wrong way round after repainting and so it´s a "6" now.
    The N19 was a model for the Fareast market in the 1970s. There are variations in the case(lugs), dial colour, markers(some with blue Swarowski crystals) and movement(ETA 2789 with day/date or 2783 with date only).
    Yours is missing the luminous material in the hands. The inscription "automatic" on the dial is not original.

    Hi!


    Anhand der Referenznummer(xxx.xxxx.x) läßt sich das Uhrwerk auch ohne Öffnen bestimmen. Wenn ich dein Foto richtig deute, lautet sie 561.5374.2, die 561 würde für ein ETA 2671 stehen.
    Die Schrauben des Deckels sitzen manchmal sehr fest, das sollte besser ein Fachmann machen.

    Ein originales Ersatzglas zu finden dürfte extrem schwer oder unmöglich sein und wenn, sind diese extrem teuer. Wenn vorhandene Kratzer allerdings nicht zu tief sind, lassen sie sich bei mineralischem Glas mit Diamantpaste auspolieren.

    Wirtschaftlich gesehen dürfte allein eine Revision den Verkaufswert der Uhr vermutlich übersteigen, da Damenuhren kaum gesammelt werden und daher auch schwer zu verkaufen sind. Andererseits bekommst du eine vergleichbar gute neue schweizer Uhr mit einem hochwertigen Automatikwerk für den Gegenwert eines Service natürlich nicht.

  • fake?Datum30.01.2014 23:38
    Foren-Beitrag von mike184 im Thema fake?

    Hi Elisa!


    Ganz schwierige Frage! Und nicht vernünftig zu beantworten anhand von einem oder mehreren Bildchen.
    Allenfalls ganz schlechte Fakes mit nicht unerheblichen Abweichungen zum Original ließen sich so erkennen.
    Selbst mit vielen detaillierten und hervorragenden Fotos ist es schwierig, sofern diese nicht die geöffnete Uhr und das Uhrwerk zeigen.

    Denn: Die Fakes sind im Laufe der Zeit so "gut" - oder richtiger,: so ähnlich geworden, dass sie sich optisch nicht oder kaum mehr erkennen lassen. Über einen längeren Tragezeitraum zeigt sich dann natürlich der Unterschied, denn billigere Materialien sind dann gar nicht oder nicht so kratzfest und nutzen ab. Und beim Öffnen eines solchen Fakes hört die gute Verarbeitungsqualität dann schlagartig auf und man findet kein schweizer, sondern ein billiges chinesisches Uhrwerk. Auch die Etuis samt Papieren mit Sicherheits-Hologrammen werden mittlerweile nahezu perfekt kopiert.

    Wenn du auf "Nummer sicher" gehen willst, solltest du die Uhr nur von einer seriösen Quelle in Deutschland kaufen, damit du die Uhr bei einem authorisierten Rado-Händler oder einem Uhrmacher, der sich auskennt, überprüfen lassen und notfalls zurückgeben kannst.

    Auf den ersten Blick sieht die Integral Jubilé auf dem Bild echt aus, aber das ist aus den genannten Gründen sehr relativ und ohne Gewähr.

    Hi!

    Schöne Uhr!
    Shangri La war der Name einer Modellreihe von Rado Damenuhren mit Automatikwerk von den 1960ern bis in die 1980er. Die einzelnen Modelle sind vom Design her völlig verschieden und haben außer dem Modellnamen und einem Automatikwerk kaum etwas gemeinsam.
    Deine dürfte aus den späten 1970ern/frühen 1980ern stammen. Ohne Foto vom Werk und vom Bodens(Rückseite) kann ich nicht viel mehr dazu sagen.
    Die Krone ist völlig rund und sollte getauscht werden. Wenn du sie regelmäßig tragen willst, solltest du sie zum Service schicken. Dabei wird das Uhrwerk gereinigt, geölt und justiert,, dann hast du wieder ein paar Jahre Ruhe. Beim Rado-Kundendienst ist das extrem teuer aber das kann auch jeder gute Uhrmacher günstiger. Wenn du keinen kennst, kannst du mit Hemmerling in Calau Kontakt aufnehmen, mit dem habe ich gute Erfahrungen gemacht.

    Hi Christina!


    Eine sehr schöne Gazelle hast du da!

    Wenn du sie regelmäßig tragen willst, solltest du sie zum Service schicken. Dabei wird das Uhrwerk gereinigt, geölt und justiert,, dann hast du wieder ein paar Jahre Ruhe. Beim Rado-Kundendienst ist das extrem teuer aber das kann auch jeder gute Uhrmacher günstiger. Wenn du keinen kennst, kannst du mit Hemmerling in Calau Kontakt aufnehmen, mit dem habe ich gute Erfahrungen gemacht. Ein neues Plexiglas kostet auch nur ein paar €, das würde ich bei der Gelegenheit mitmachen lassen. Das Gehäuse läßt sich vorsichtig mit einer milden, handelsüblichen Silberpolitur sehr schön aufpolieren, die Goldauflage war damals recht hoch.

    Wirtschaftlich gesehen dürfte das den Wert der Uhr vermutlich übersteigen, da Damenuhren kaum gesammelt werden und daher auch schwer zu verkaufen sind. Andereseits gefällt sie dir, ist ein Erinnerungsstück an deine Oma und eine wirklich gute neue mechanische schweizer Uhr bekommst du für den Gegenwert eines Service nicht.

    Ca. 1965 könnte grob hinkommen, eher zwei, drei Jahre älter.. 817 ist die Referenznummer und sie ist in einem deutschen Katalog von 1962 gelistet, den ich besitze. 162.- DM sollte sie damals kosten und das war eine Menge Geld in einem Jahr, in dem das Durchschnittseinkommen bei 7.328.- DM im Jahr lag.


    Ich wünsche dir mit der Uhr jedenfalls noch viel Freude!

    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.

    Last not least, the new Esenza Touch for the ladies with an interesting gimmick: It has no crown,
    the time is to set by touching the left and the right side of the case.



    Details are described in Rado´s press release:

    Zitat
    Rado Esenza Ceramic Touch - The world’s first portable ceramic touch device

    Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication

    (Lengnau, Switzerland – April 2013) Many have dreamed it but Rado has made it a
    reality. A touch controlled watch in full ceramic – and this one is made exclusively for
    women. The latest technology and the most emotional of all the human senses unite
    for this unique, stand-out product .

    Not many companies develop new technology aimed specifically at women. Rado
    shows itself once again to be both typically unconventional, and streets ahead of the
    competition with the Rado Esenza Ceramic Touch.

    Controlled by the gentle press and sweep of a finger along the side of the case – left
    for hours and right for minutes – time can be made to fly by or can be turned back in
    a single stroke.

    Easy to manipulate and a delight to behold this is the ultimate lady’s watch. It may
    have no crown but is still fit for a queen and there’s no danger of ruining your
    manicure.

    Developed specially by the Rado design team and drawing on years of touch
    technology from within the Swatch Group as well as our own expertise in high-tech
    materials, this watch is both hard – it’s made in full high-tech ceramic – and soft – the
    case is a gently curved oval – all at the same time.
    Not only will the watch retain its brilliant shine over the years, it also benefits from an
    extended battery life of up to 4 years: much longer than a standard quartz watch.

    Sensual setting

    The monobloc construction of the case, the production of which is carried out under
    high pressure using a sophisticated injection process, ensures the success of the
    ceramic touch technology.

    A watch case made from metal would act as a shield between the outside world and
    the circuits inside. As high-tech ceramic is an insulator this watch gives the wearer
    the power to influence the electrical circuit at its heart. The electrodes can ‘feel’ the
    presence of a fingertip on the case through the ceramic.

    As this watch is all about touch, it should be worn on the wrist during setting, the skin
    in contact with the stainless steel case back ensures that the Rado Esenza Ceramic
    Touch becomes an extension of the body.

    The six new models in this collection - three black and three white - represent the
    first references in a series of product developments to come.

    More than 50 years ago Rado revolutionised the watch industry with its use of
    unconventional materials. In 2013 Rado has taken the same risks needed to be
    successful all those years ago and the result is a world first.

    Simplicity at its most sophisticated.


    Zitat
    Rado Esenza Ceramic Touch – Technical description

    The science behind touch-sensitive timing

    (Lengnau, Switzerland – April 2013) Rado has introduced a breakthrough in timing
    technology with the launch of the new Rado Esenza Ceramic Touch. The Rado
    technical and materials teams worked with a team of watchmaking experts to ensure
    the touch sensitive technology was flawless – just like the design of the watch.

    Rado’s more than 25 years of expertise with ceramic was an immediate advantage
    as ceramic is a natural insulator. As ceramic does not conduct electricity it is an ideal
    material for a touch sensitive device.

    The quartz movement, made up of a number of essential components, includes two
    chips, which are loaded with the software that governs the watch. The movement sits
    neatly inside the high-tech ceramic case. Nestled between the movement and the
    monobloc ceramic case are four electrodes, positioned at 2, 4, 8 and 10 o’clock.

    When a fingertip influences the electrode through the ceramic case, it acts as a stray
    capacitor, modifying the frequency of an oscillating circuit.

    The detection of the movement of a fingertip in a certain sequence on the case
    instructs the chip to allow the motor to move the hands, thus allowing the time to be
    set and reset through touch alone.

    The stainless steel case back of the watch is also an essential component as it
    “connects” the watch to the body, which acts as a reference for the electronic circuit.
    For this reason – and due to the fact it has no crown – the Rado Esenza Ceramic
    Touch can and should be worn on the wrist during setting.

    A guide to setting the Rado Esenza Ceramic Touch

    1. Position the watch on the wrist
    2. To activate the touch functions and put the watch into setting mode, touch
    the case at 8 o’clock for approx. 5 seconds then immediately slide your finger
    along the right hand side of the case. The watch gives a short ‘beep’.
    3. To set the hours, slide your finger along the left hand side of the case in a
    clockwise direction to move forward and in an anti-clockwise direction to
    move back one hour.
    4. To set the minutes slide your finger along the right hand side of the case in a
    clockwise direction to move forward and in an anti-clockwise direction to
    move back.
    5. To move the minutes forward faster, maintain pressure on the case at 4
    o’clock and at 2 o’clock to move the minutes backwards faster.
    6. To exit setting mode touch the watch at 8 o’clock for at least 2 seconds. The
    watch emits two small ‘beeps’. Setting mode is now deactivated.

    The Rado HyperChrome Glam Slam mini-collection

    Gold and diamonds – a Glam Slam winning combination from Rado

    (Lengnau, Switzerland – April 2013) This is the mini-collection that fans of glamour
    and the latest technology have been waiting for, as Rado combines the high-tech
    materials for which it is famous and some of the world’s most precious substances:
    diamonds and gold.

    And where better to debut these new models than the favourite haunt of supermodels
    and superstars: Miami. Home of the renowned tennis ‘Glam-Slam’, hot days and
    glittering nights are the perfect setting for Rado’s latest edition of monochrome magic
    – each with a very precious twist.

    Think big, think bold and think brilliant as that’s what the Rado designers did when
    creating these new timepieces.

    Unrestricted glamour

    For gents, gleaming black high-tech ceramic meets pure 18k gold. The two materials
    form a perfect fusion for a look of undeniable prestige. Just 333 individually
    numbered pieces of this Limited Edition in yellow gold, and 333 in rose gold have
    been produced, leaving many collectors disappointed and ensuring that fashion
    forward watch fans always look their best courtside and poolside.

    At Rado the ladies are just as important as the gents and have a choice of two
    models – each dripping in diamonds. Bezels and side inserts with 181 diamonds are
    guaranteed to cause a stir and raise an envious eyebrow or two in the VIP box at the
    tennis tournament, in the club on Ocean Drive or over sunset cocktails on the beach.

    Rado is proud to present unrestricted glamour which is practical as well as sparkling.
    The monobloc construction of the high-tech ceramic cases ensures lightness as well
    as the superior scratch-resistance which comes as standard with this advanced
    material.

    Glittering, glamorous and very Miami – with its Glam Slam watches Rado is the
    master of style as well as the master of materials.

    Rado HyperChrome UTC

    The Ultimate Travelling Companion

    (Lengnau, Switzerland – April 2013) The world is becoming a smaller place and many
    of us are travelling more for business and pleasure. But what does the twenty-first
    century traveller really need when hopping on a plane?

    There are only a handful of essential items that no traveller should be without and an
    accurate watch is one of them. But what is more important: knowing the time at your
    destination or the time back in your home country so you know when it is OK to call
    friends, family and business contacts without waking them up?

    With the new Rado HyperChrome UTC there is no decision to make as the watch can
    show two different time zones at the same time. UTC stands for Coordinated
    Universal Time and is a more accurate take on the traditional ‘GMT’. At Rado, two
    different time zones also ensure double the style, making this the ultimate travelling
    companion for fashionable jet setters.

    A second time zone on a Rado watch is a rare feature, appearing only on
    multifunction models and one watch from the 1960s. So, the UTC movement marks a
    rare foray into complications for the Swiss master of materials.

    Material magic

    The focus may be on the movement, but this doesn’t mean that the materials have
    taken a back seat. Not only is the Rado HyperChrome UTC practical and useful, it
    also benefits from a high-tech ceramic case with the ground-breaking Rado monobloc
    construction. This ensures lightness, scratch-resistance and comfort, all of which
    make for a pleasurable travel experience. With three of the four new models sporting
    plasma high-tech ceramic cases, but without the use of any metal, materials really
    are still at the forefront of the collection.

    With Super-LumiNova® for the indexes and the tips of the hands, the HyperChrome
    UTC is just as easy to read at night as during the day. The second time zone hand
    features a striking red or blue tip (dependent on the model) to ensure easy reading
    even with just a quick glance at the dial.

    Lightweight, scratch-resistant and just as at home in the urban jungle as on safari, the
    Rado HyperChrome UTC should always be the first item on your packing list.










    HyperChrome Court models with ceramic bracelet or caoutchouc band, the three colours represent the three sorts of tennis courts: Blue for hard ground, green for grass and orange for sand.

    The Rado HyperChrome Court Collection

    Rado serves up another ace with its tennis focused mini-collection

    (Lengnau, Switzerland – April 2013) Hard, grass and clay courts are standard fixtures
    on the professional circuit in the modern game of tennis and Rado tops the rankings
    with the stunning new tennis-inspired mini-collection from its Rado HyperChrome
    range. These three new models each represent a different playing surface.

    The hard court is represented by the brilliant blue version, grass by gleaming green
    and clay by an audacious orange. The dial details and hands of each model contain
    Super-LumiNova® to glow in the dark and help you shine – even during long-lasting
    endurance matches.

    White is normally the colour associated with tennis but Rado is typically
    unconventional with its latest offering. Each chronograph is dynamic, determined,
    powerful and made of scratch-resistant but lightweight black matt high-tech ceramic.
    Sandblasted to perfection for a winning look, matt black high-tech ceramic adds an
    extra step in the already complex procedure for producing high-tech ceramic watch
    cases.

    Hard to beat

    These strong looks will ensure you always look cool on court – no matter how hot it
    gets, and each super sporty tennis watch can also follow you off court to the pool, the
    beach, or – for tennis champions – your yacht.

    Whether you prefer to hit from the baseline, run in to the net, or play serve and volley,
    the Rado HyperChrome Court Collection is bound to complement your game.
    Singles will find it a suitable doubles partner, and when it comes to the style stakes
    you’ll always be ‘in’. Forehands, backhands, volleys and smashes have never been
    so well-timed.

    Distinctive and eye-catching but with the subtle class and lightweight scratchresistance

    associated with all the ceramic models in the Rado HyperChrome
    collection, the new Rado HyperChrome Court Collection offers comfort and cool in
    one perfectly formed package.

    Another ace from Rado.

    The new DiaMaster line looks very interesting. Very clear designs, both cases and dials. They look very worthy.
    Here´s Rado´s press release:

    The new Rado DiaMaster collection

    The new face of a Rado legend

    (Lengnau, Switzerland – April 2013) DiaMaster is a name that has long been
    associated with Rado, having graced several super scratch-resistant collections over
    the years.

    In 2013 Rado presents a DiaMaster collection in high-tech ceramic for the first time
    ever. This is a complete redesign, with only the name remaining from the collections
    that went before. But the new DiaMaster promises to appeal to DiaMaster diehards
    and new enthusiasts alike.

    Subtle, minimalistic and chic are the key words when it comes to the design of these
    simple, pared-down ceramic beauties. The new face of Rado has a new face of its
    own: large open dials for easy readability and an unobscured view.

    The ladies collection comprises eight classy quartz models. The collection offers
    something for every lady – regardless of style. For those who like to look white hot
    there is an all white model with white ceramic case and white satin strap. Black
    ceramic features on two models and there is a glittering metallic-look model in
    plasma high-tech ceramic – which is exclusive to Rado – with 93 Top Wesselton
    diamonds on the dial. Brilliant.

    For gents there is a full range of quartz and automatic models to choose from, each
    offering clean lines and large, open dials. The plasma high-tech ceramic case on
    leather strap offers a daring mix of modernity and old school chic.

    There is also a set of five manly, supersized chronographs presented in polished
    black, or plasma high-tech ceramic, as well as a bold and breathtaking full matt black
    model. With one of these on your wrist time will always be on your side.

    Plasma treatment – 21st century alchemy

    Plasma high-tech ceramic creates a striking and mysterious metallic brilliance, in a
    warm grey colour, without the use of any metal. The plasma carburising process is
    patented and exclusive to Rado and is a form of modern alchemy. Gases activated
    at 20,000˚C alter the composition of high-tech ceramic without affecting its essential
    properties. Although only the surface colour of the ceramic is changed as the
    metallic finish emerges from each piece, it will not fade over time, instead retaining its
    naturally scratch-resistant shine for years to come.

    The DiaMaster may look very different from previous collections but the name alone
    stands for guaranteed Rado quality and outstanding Rado design.

    Facing the future with a brand new look.



    I´m sure you will recognise the design of the bracelets and the markers when comparing with some of their famous vintage designs.











    "Back to leather" is also a topic - new high grade leather bands are offered with a lot of models.



    Also very nice: The chronographs. With the very small subseconds, their look reminds to the old chronographs with only two subdials.





    For me the highlight: The DiaMaster RHW1 Limited Edition. The particular design is surely splitting - you love it or you hate it. ;)
    I love it. The Roman cyphers XII, III, VI united to one style element with the subsecond on the 9 and the moving anchor above but still inner the 3 looks brilliant and ingeniuos for me.
    The case has a decent bronce colour, which increases the vintage character of the watch. And seems to be fashion, you see a lot of bronce cases everywhere at the moment.
    What you can´t see on the pics - the case, though it has a very massive presence(45 mm), is ultra light, made from a new high-tech ceramic with half the weight of the one we already know.
    Inside Rado´s RHW1 movement, obviously based on the ETA/Unitas 6497-1 and made from black anodised hard aluminium. Nice to see, the case has a look-through back.
    The whole watch has a weight of just 68 g! It will come in September and will cost around 4.100.- €.

    Rado DiaMaster RHW1 Limited Edition

    Modern materials and a masterful movement for ultimate lightness

    (Lengnau, Switzerland – April 2013) The ability to reinvent, constant innovation and
    pushing the boundaries to effect real change. If this is Rado, then the Rado
    DiaMaster RHW1 Limited Edition is the epitome of the brand.

    The show-stopping stand out piece in a collection of pared-down design watches, the
    Rado DiaMaster RHW1 mixes the Rado business of high-tech materials with the
    pleasure of adding something new in the world of watchmaking - this time an unusual
    movement for a high-tech ceramic watch.

    Chosen for being twice as light as standard ceramic, Si3N4 TiN is a form of high-tech
    ceramic composite that Rado has researched and developed in its latest quest for
    innovation. Made by heating the mixed powders at 1800 degrees Celsius in an over
    pressure atmosphere of nitrogen, it is known for its superior wear-resistance.

    The ‘old bronze’ colour gives the watch case a rugged, lived-in appearance. This is a
    watch that seems to have a story or two to tell about where it has been. The choice
    of leather for the strap adds to the windswept and mysterious appeal of this
    undeniably cool and manly timepiece.

    Hard as nails, light as a feather

    The materials may give this DiaMaster its look, but it is the movement that gives the
    watch its soul. Rado innovations are usually seen in the materials used for the
    outside of our watches – this DiaMaster also has a Rado innovation on the inside.

    Aluminium movements were used in pocket watches in the late nineteenth and early
    twentieth centuries because of their lightness. It was this past trend and focus on
    lightness that inspired Rado to use such a movement – the RHW1, which is exclusive
    to Rado – for the first time in an extremely light and high-tech wristwatch.

    As ever, the Rado designers have given this limited edition a modern twist to create a
    watch that oozes 21st century style.

    Rado: typically unconventional ideas lead to outstanding design.

    Thema von mike184 im Forum RADOs of today

    Hi!


    Back from Baselworld 2013. It was a hard drive and an overwhelming experience.
    It was pouring with rain last Saturday, so the 5 hours driving on the motorway with lots of roadwork has not really been a pleasure. We started at 3:00, arrived at 8:00, had a breakfast and spent the day at the fair. Exactly in time for our way back, the rain came again - we started at 19:00 and were back at 23:30.
    The fair is large - impossible to watch everything interesting inner one day. So I reduced my photo activities almost to the Rado booth and visited as much as possible, trying to motivate my kids, who didn´t want to see even more watches after a few hours. ;)

    Interesting architecture, the new bulding with the new main entrance, which had been built inner the last year.

    I actually didn´t plan to visit the fair this year, but was invited by Rado. They are researching about their history at the moment and so came to my HP and finally contacted me.
    So I have to thank Rado for an interesting day. I got a conducted tour around the Rado booth and had an interesting meeting with some of their marketing people and with CEO Matthias Breschan.
    He is a very nice and professional guy and IMHO found exactly the right way for a successful future of Rado - building a bridge between the amazing designs of the past and the modern production with high-tech materials. Looking forward to the future but being conscious about the own history.

    What they showed: The Hyperchrome line with the Glam Slam-, UTC-, Court- and "normal" models, the DiaMaster line with the sensational RHW1, the D-Star line with the amazing Split Second chronograph, the True Thinline and the Esenza line with the interesting ladies´ Esenza Ceramic Touch.
    I will show them - model line by model line - with a mix of own and Rado pictures and the info I received.

  • [widget=5]Hi!

    Diese Uhr wurde aus NOS-Teilen zusammengebaut, ist also quasi wie neu(NOS - New Old Stock, Originalteile, nie benutzt aber gelagert). Die Referenznummer 12114 gehört zu einer Purple Horse. Wunderschönes, originales SK-Armband. Allein von den Teilen her sicherlich ihr Geld(200 US$) wert.

  • Hi!

    Hier müssen wir einfach zwischen Modellreihe und Version/"einzelnem Modell" unterscheiden.
    Natürlich sind deine beiden Uhren unterschiedlich, aber nur unterschiedliche Versionen mit unterschiedlicher Referenznummer. Aber beide gehören zur Modellreihe Streamline, denn deine Referenz 11563 ist bis auf das Gehäusematerial und den Zifferblattaufdruck mit meiner identisch. Und deine Referenz 10519 trägt selbst den Modellnamen Streamline.
    Nur ein Beispiel: die Green Horse wurde von Ende der 1950er bis in die 1980er in unzähligen Versionen hergestellt mit unterschiedlichen Designs, Gehäusen, Zifferblättern, Werken, aber alle gehören zu einer Modellreihe.
