Ref.: 11775

Issued Ca. 1969

Description: This is one of the second series of Starliner models issued by Rado in the 1960s. This example has the less common small (35 mm) case and the addition of the day display; early models had date only and some examples of this model had cases of 38 mm diameter. The distinctive silver/black dial paint is original, as are the desirable cylindrical markers with beveled tops in white. The dial is fairly well preserved, showing only moderate aging and some signs of exposure, primarily on the black half. The anchor logo rotates properly, and the correct silver/white hands are present.

The case front shows little wear and the back has some minor marks. The movement, stamped A.S. 1806 is keeping accurate time; day and date change at midnight.
