  • A 56-H chronometer without the shooting-star case back?

    Is this authentic, or fishy?
    I cannot recall seeing a 56-H with this case back...is that faceted back even something we've seen on other gold Rado watches?

    Here is an image:


    Here is the usual case back, seen only on 56-H models:

    It looks like a good fake, if it isn't authentic. Everything looks period correct. The anchor logo is also cosistent with what they were using for some of their Asian market watches. Maybe there was an issue in some market with that logo...?

      It does look good, and plausible. If someone faked the case back, they went to significant expense to mill it from 18k gold and, presumably, the entire case would be faked, or else I would expect the gold color not to match perfectly. I hope someone will post here if they can confirm that a non-shooting star back was used on any gold Rado chronometer.
