  • Rado/Cuervo y Sobrinos

    Is this for real? Rado in Cuba! 1950s AS 1002 movement.

    We have seen one or two other Rado/Cuervo Y Sobrinos co-brands from the 1950s. The printing on it looks legit: good and sharp but not too good and too sharp. There has always been some debate, but I don't see a lot of reason to doubt it.
    Solve all your doubts through question mode.

      I was looking at this other one from the same era and I agree, the printing looks legit.

        I'm very skeptical of both. They are too similar and the printing looks too new, IMO. Considering the age on the Rado hands, and the wear on both cases (and patina on the dial markers) I do not think that 60+ year old printing would be so crisp.
        I suspect them both of having recently-modified dials.

          I remember a few years ago a lot of rados were offered in ebay with the cuervo and sobrinos script, all from the same seller
