Regular price $450.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A DEBONAIRE 70s RADO CHANDELLE ROMAN NUMERAL PORCELAIN DIAL AUTO WITH KILLER STEPPED LUGS. SIGNED 4X. 

 

CASE: SUPER SHARP ALL STEEL CASE WITH STEPPED LUGS MEASURING A NICE 35mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN. REALLY GREAT CASEWORK ON THIS ONE WITH A LOT OF PIZZAZZ. VERY DRESSY FEEL ON THE WRIST. 

 

DIAL: I JUST LOVE THIS ELEGANT ENAMEL WHITE DIAL WITH THOSE BOLD BLACK PRINTED ROMAN NUMERALS. SUCH A CLASSIC LOOK. THOSE THIN STEEL HANDS LET THE DIAL DO THE TALKING, AND THAT FUN DATE WINDOW AT 3 ADDS A LITTLE PLAYFULNESS TO THIS OTHERWISE VERY SERIOUS DIAL. LIKE ALL CLASSIC VINTAGE RADOS, THE ANCHOR LOGO SPINS AROUND FREELY....WHICH IS ALWAYS A FUN TOUCH. 

 

MOVEMENT: THIS GENTLEMAN RUNS ON A 25 JEWEL ETA 2824 AUTOMATIC WITH SOME RATHER ELEGANT FINISHING. THIS GUY QUICKSETS NICELY, WINDS SMOOTHLY, AND IS KEEPING AWESOME TIME BOTH ON/OFF THE WRIST. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNNOWN, BUT THE NUMBERS ON THE TIMEGRAPHER ARE SOLID AND THIS ONE IS A STRONG RUNNER

 

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A SUPPLE CALF-LEATHER STRAP WHICH REALLY FITS TASTEFULLY ON THIS BEAUTY. THIS ONE PACKS SUCH A GREAT PUNCH. THAT ENAMEL ROMAN NUMERAL DIAL IS JUST DROP DEAD GORGEOUS, AND WHEN YOU COMBINE THAT WITH THOSE ELEGANT ART-DECO STYLE LUGS, THIS ONE MAKES FOR A CLASSY NUMBER. THIS IS THE PERFECT GENTLEMAN’S DRESS WATCH. THIS ONE WOULD LOOK AWESOME WITH A TUX BUT CAN ALSO BE A BIT MORE CASUAL AND SLIP EASILY UNDER A SPORT’S COAT.
