Late 1960s Rado Manhattan Automatic

A vintage Rado Manhattan wristwatch. Rarer model that features ETA automatic movement. Keeps excellent time; stainless steel case dial ,date day wiindow , non- original band and 36mm lug to lug. Original dial that has aged quite well.

Perhaps the most recognisable of vintage Rado automatics is the Manhattan line, the focus of a cult following amongst Rado collectors. The case is in need of a polish.

Of the brand’s radical and funky designs, this is the most distinctive and perhaps the most often copied, a recent example being the rectangular models of the Seiko S-Wave collection. Fully dissembled, cleaned and oiled in November 2005.

Price USD $325.00  Insurance and shipping extra. Payment by Bank transfer or by arrangement
