You believe the real RADO are the ones with the ‘Anchor logo? So am I. Please read on.

100% New Old Stock RADO Voyager circa 1965-1970. Retro and funky! Bring back the good old 1960/70s. Genuine 100% New Old Stock from an authorized Rado dealer. With full Rado paper. A genuine 100% N.O.S. RADO. I was very surprised indeed when I first saw it! The case is bright and feckless as mirror, even reflecting my shirt in the photo!

Voyager, along with Diastar, is one of Rado’s classic models. And this Voyager is made from its classic golden age—1965-1970. Never on wrist.

Case back with 2 proofs showing its genuine N.O.S. status:
1. Mint blue wax (Veteran members should know the watch manufacturers’ practice of putting blue wax as protective layer on the case back before late 1970s)

2. Original Rado matt computer label with serial number printed by dot-pin printer. Such printer was hi-tech back in late 1960s! Please feel free the check the serial number with Rado’s Headquarter in Switzerland about this serial number and the authenticity and production year of the watch.

Most other Swiss brands at that time only put blue wax on the case back but not such high-tech computer labels. Yes, RADO was very high-tech in the 1960s and 1970s! Vintage N.O.S. collectors know what I mean.

100% original and intact. Timed it for 1 day. Running very accurately. Ticking very healthily. Day/Date working properly. Change day/date right on 24:00. Absolutely no scratch, wear or ding anywhere on mineral glass crystal, case, case back and the bracelet.

Case:
All Stainless Steel with fine brushing finish.
Case diameter: 31mm without crown, 33mm with crown
Lug to lug: 35mm
Lug width: 20mm

Case Back:
Screw case back. Absolutely unopened. No scratch at all. Still with intact original protective blue wax from factory. With RADO’s matt computer label written “Swiss Made”. Serial number is “636 3596.4 063” printed by early dot-print computer printer. I do not have the case-opener and prefer not to open it to avoid any possible damage to the blue wax and the computer print-out sticker.

Crystal:
Mineral glass crystal

Dial:
Signed “RADO VOYAGER”, “Swiss 063” at 6 o’clock.
Very light yellow. Extremely sublte vertical stripe finishing.
The RADO Anchor is planted on the dial separately.
Diamonds on the 12 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clok.
Old style baton. Batons are of extremely fine finishing: Top surface with vertical strips, every side surface is of glossy bright finishing.
With lamination half-dot on the outer edge of each baton.

Day/Date:
Working properly. Day changes sharply on 24:00. Weekday in English and Spanish.

Crown:
Original

Movement:
Swiss automatic movement. I do not have the case back opener and prefer not open the case back to keep the blue wax and computer label intact (even for the one I keep for myself) thus I do not know the movement caliber. But “Anchor Rado” from the 1960s/1970s is reputed for their movements’ grade, finishing and durability. This is why more and more watch collectors are still chasing after every fine piece of used “Anchor Rado” today. I have full confidence in this N.O.S.

Bracelet:
Width: 20mm. Original all stainless steel. Signed “RADO” on clap. Marked “Stainless Steel 04308” on the buckle. Very high quality. Likely to be Swiss-made but I am not sure.
Old 1960s/1970s stainless steel bracelet style. You can freely adjust the buckle on one end of the bracelet. Bracelet is fairly long. Can fit various wrist sizes easily.
This N.O.S. RADO bracelet alone sells for around US$80- now and is difficult to find.

I am a keen collector several brands. Just love the genuine RADO with anchor. Indeed, Rado is re-manufacturing its famous “Diastar” with this “anchor” logo again these days.

Paper:
With full RADO packet containing the International Guarantee booklet, guarantee card and a list of service centers worldwide. Unstamped and undated.
Please note: This guarantee cannot cover a N.O.S. Voyager from the 1960s/1970s now. It is to prove it is bought from an authorized and decent RADO dealer.

Hi Wien,

it seems, that the anchor is turning around. How could he do it, and why?

Thanks for answering,

The "Anchor" can turn around indeed. It is a special feature for some vintage "Anchor Rado" models from the 1960s and 1970s, but not all. Please feel free to check for detailed information on this with RADO Headquarter. I am sure they can answer this with full details and records.

For the two N.O.S. Voyager displayed here, the logo of the Two-Tone one can still rotate very smoothly. This is just lovely! For the all stainless-steel one, the rotation is not smooth now. My watchmaker says it can be adjusted easily. But he and I prefer not to open the case-back to adjust this to keep the blue wax and computer print-out label intact.

Hope this is helpful. Danke.
