Check out the new Chronometer pages on the site, devoted to the 18k Rado 56-H, the steel Chronometer Ref. 11821, and some other accurate vintage timekeepers from Marvin and Favre-Leuba. Click the images below, or look under Rado or Watch Collecting, and let me know what you think!

A lot of research has resulted in a plausible theory of why some vintage Rado watches have an E appended to the name or 5-digit reference number (pre-1973). The E is thought to signify that the watch, whose earliest examples were powered by an AS movement, is a newer one powered by ETA (e.g., Diastar 1 and 1/E). Read more about this in the Rado Forum at equationoftime.com.

My new feature article about early Rado chronometer watches has been published
in the Watch & Clock Bulletin of the NAWCC
.

 

Now that it has been issued in print, I’ll also be adding some updates soon and posting it on WatchCarefully.com with additional images and information. For a teaser, check out #rado56h on Instagram. Here are a handful of images to give you a flavor...
