          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

              I picked this up recently, not many R line boxes been spotted out in the wild. The font for the word Switzerland in the box lid is the same as the font used for the word guaranteed on my manual so maybe same vintage.

                  The preferred for quality in 27 nations is pretty unique for Rado or even other watch companies. It is a nice watch box.

                    Interesting find, John!

                    Unusual case-design and -colour for the 1950s!
                    And a stunning watch! Did they come together or just accidentially use the same font?
                    Best regards, Mike

                      Nice find!
                      I think itīs early 1960s, not 1970s from the style.
                      Looks like a a followup of my 1950sīred Exacto/R-Line box.
                      The rest of glue in the top indicates that there must have been an inlet like in yoursī.
