  • Question about the Japanese 2008 Golden Horse Chronometer.

    I spotted this on-line and was surprised to see the steel case has a gold crown. Was this standard, or might something have been changed?

    Update: I answered my own question. Apparently there were two versions in steel with argent dial. One had silver markers, hands & crown, the other is shown below.

    You did answer your own question and you came up with the right answer. There were more than a few Asian Rados from that time that do not conform to the normal standards or protocols. The quartz horse with the rotating anchor, for instance.

      It seems that around 1970-1974, the period when Rado moved into regular production of watches that were not fully mechanical (e.g., electro-mechanical, tuning-fork, quartz) they would use the anchor logo on anything except a hand-winder. I've seen rotating anchors on a lot of the aforementioned types, and at least one static anchor logo on a red disc was in my collection. I need to finish updating my website and get all those old web pages back up!!

      Ah, here it is (1973 code on the mvt):
