      Hi!

      What about these Mini-Manhattans - are these ladies watches, too?
      Any others known in a ladies version?

        The Mini Manhattan is a tiny hand-wound, no-date version of the Manhattan. There is also a somewhat larger ladies' automatic-with-date version. I've already got a Mini and the other type is on the way. When I recieve it I'll assemble all 3 and share some photos.

          holy cow

          okay - my bad - i just now noticed that the watches were already divided by gentleman's and ladies. my kalaya was listed amongst the TWO ladies models listed at the bottom. (three if you include the ladies version of the manhattan) wow... talk about underrepresentation.

          from now on i'll keep a list of ladies models i see while surfing out there.
          i know there were some (attached bracelet, etc) dressier models for women i have seen that aren't listed above.

            There were a couple with Rosa in the names, I think Monte Rosa, Arosa (need to check).

            These models are off the top of my head. I'll check my collection when get the chance.

            Thank, Mike.

            I'm so sick and tired of my friends who can't handle their alcohol. The other night they dropped me three times while carrying me to the car

              Excellent additions. One possible exception: I know I've seen more than one example of the Technos Cougar, but am unsure whether Rado used the name.

                Mike, it might be as useful (or perhaps more so) to list model names we've seen that are incorrect or suspected to be so. For example the Rado Ultra-Chron or the Cougar (see my post below). This isn't necessarily an easy task, but one we should consider.

                  Hi Brad,

                  yes, a good idea.

                  To the Ultra-Chron I found this:


                  Finished auction at the swiss bay, no bids.


                  Finished auction at Ebay UK, finished by seller(error).


                  Finished auction from Chile

                  The first one may be a Voyager with refinshed dial. No. 2 and 3 look like a variation of the Silver Star, but very authentic. To the regulars or still under suspect?
                  One more information about ultra-chron-movements - in the german speaking area you say "Schnelläufer", "quick runners" for all movements being faster than 18.000 A/h, so this definition has a bigger range of movements here, not only the 36.000 A/h-ones.

                  To the Cougar I found just this:


                  Rolexralphstore and, of course, the threads here.
                  I think Rolexralph is a dial-refinisher and if I want a Rado Mike, he will do that in any colour.
                  But the dials seem to be well done(in a technical sense), maybe the dial of Ken´s(hongit) one is from there.

                  Something different:
                  Create your own dial!
                  Just take any of your Rado-Dials, paint it black and do your own "printing" with a small brush. After finishing that, it maybe looks like that:



                  Anybody heard about a "Consair"?

                  IMPORTANT - Could you please check these numbers for me? 636.3512.4, 29761583

                        What about the Holy Cow - is it a gentlemen´s or a ladies´ model?
                        For India only?

                          Isn't there also something like a Blue Castle as well? Just did quick scan of all the lists, maybe I missed.

                            There was a Golden Castle...maybe it came in blue as well, I'm unsure.
