Mechanical Peseux 7001 calibre movement – Steel case and strap – Sapphire glass – With original box and papers

Type: Analogue wristwatch
Brand: Rado
Movement: Manual winding
Gender: Men
Case material: Steel
Model: Elegance
Period: 1970-1979
Extras: Full set

Exceptionally beautiful Rado Elegance men's watch.
Complete set with box, booklet and proof of warranty; numbers are correct.

This is a golden opportunity! You'll rarely find a vintage Rado this complete.

Purchased on 26 September 1976, Honolulu, Hawaii. 41 years old.

The watch is in good, used condition.
The movement runs well. The maintenance history is unknown.

The Rado 509 signed Peseux 7001 movement runs excellently.

Mild stains can be perceived below the glass between the 4 and 6 o'clock positions. The sapphire glass is scratch-free and the steel has a fine line here and there.

The case measures 37 mm in width, measured without the crown.
The original strap is 17.5 cm long. There are H-style clasp extenders for sale, with which the strap can be extended. This can be done at every better jeweller or application store.

No guarantee on water resistance, this was not tested.
Please take a careful look at the photos before placing a bid.
The watch will be shipped by registered post, worldwide.

    Geleverde horloge houdt geen tijd en is niet te repareren (Seiko heeft onderdelen niet meer). Horloge is geproduceerd in 1979 en NIET zoals aangegeven in 1986.Verkoper reageert niet op mijn berichten

    Spijtig te horen dat het horloge niet goed loopt. Helaas hebben uw eerdere berichten mij niet berijkt. Ik weet dat Catawiki de berichten service tussen koper en verkoper sluit na verloop van tijd. Maar dan is het niet meer mogelijk een bericht te maken. Wat er fout is gegaan weet ik niet. Ik heb Catawiki gevraagd de berichtenservice weer te openen want ik kom graag met u in contact om dit probleem alsnog op te lossen wat betreft de productiedatum kan ik u het volgende melden.
    Productiedatum is heel makkelijk af te leiden van het nummer op de kast. Dit nummer is 650019 het eerste cijfer is het jaartal het tweede maand van productie. Het 6309 uurwerk is zoals gezegd geproduceerd tussen 1976 en 1988 dus in theorie zou het mei 1976 of 1986 kunnen zijn. Maar doordat het kastnummer 7290 is betreft dit een tweede editie slimline model pas na 1980 uitgegeven.

    Het is goed mogelijk dat Seiko deze uurwerken niet meer repareert maar doordat het een langlopend uurwerk was heeft vrijwel iedere horlogemaker hier onderdelen of uurwerken van liggen. Waardoor service geen enkel probleem is. Wanneer ik van Catawiki heb vernomen dat berichtenservice weer is geopend neem ik persoonlijk contact met u op.

    Met vriendelijke groet
