  • Rado Space Flight sighting...

    These are pretty rare. Unfortunately, this one appears to have some significant aging to the dial, and is missing the caseback medallion. I love the seconds hand, but the hour & minute hands are a bit shorter than I think they should be. Oddly, I just noticed that design flaw today.

    I had one of these (with a perfect dial but awful case & crystal) once, but it seems to have disappeared:

    i really like the design of the Spaceflight but its too bad they didnīt mount a sapphire crystal on it. so it have to be a NOS model to catch my eye.
    the hands design definitely are stolen from the electrosonic model, quiet like them.
    also the brushing on the case are spectacular...once more: if its NOS !!!
    a great electro mechanical rado, brad.

      Brad, the hands on both watches appear to be the same???

      I really like the Space Flight. It is a definite show stopper.

        Hi Brad!

        Yes, the Space Flight is a very nice model. I donīt agree with the hands - they are original and long enough. When the hour hand meets the markers, itīs exactly one line like to see on the compare pic from my HP:

          I REALLY hate when that happens.

            The hands are original on both watches. I just think that they should be longer...the hour hand in particular is anaemic, IMO. I would like to see the hour hand reach to the inner edge of the hour markers and the minute hand to point nearly to the dots.
