Thank you for your information, i enjoyed reading through the thread that you included.
I feel as if i know a reasonable amount about this model now with everyone chipping in and helping out..very much appreciated EOT members !

My only real concern is the Rado badge on the face being slightly bent and possibly breaking if a repair is carried out on it, either way its not perfect, however the fact that its a bit unusual and reasonably rare tempts me towards it.

I will let you all know if it indeed becomes my very first Rado.
