  • Vintage Rado automatic without a moving anchor

    I don't know how many, if any, examples there are of vintage automatics without the moving anchor, particularly post '60 (with the exception of mineral dials) but here's one from '76 I came across today. Also unusual, it's an automatic two hander and the second only instance of the Rado and ETA cal numbers being the same.

    Interesting Tim, are you referring to "Swiss made" or "Rado for the Asian market" or both?

      Its the first Rado i have seen with an ETA 2821 non date
      ​​​movement, pretty interesting.
      It seems the Peseux handwinders have been sold out..
      Do we know what the 631. of the model number stands for?

        As far as the anchor goes, both. This one's just marked Swiss in the center, the only other examples of that I've seen on a Rado was on an early DS 0. It was sold in Japan, so I guess it could be referred to as a "Rado for the Asian market " , it may also have been sold elsewhere but I can't say that with any certainty.

          I guess it refers to the movement being cal 2821 in much the same way that 636. refers to cal 2836.
