21 Jewel High Grade
Chronometer Certified Fully Automatic Movement
The Rado Coupole
Jubilee models that are available in the US have common
battery powered quartz movements. The commonly available quartz Rado watches are
being sold by Jewelers and Department Stores starting at $1000
and go FAR higher in price. This particular classic
model came to us through France and features the much higher grade
21 Jewel Certified Chronometer Automatic movement. This High Grade
movement is built by ETA and is a caliber 2892-2. It is a
"high-beat" escapement beating at 28,800vph or 8 beats per second!
The attractive case &
lug configuration is reminiscent of the Gucci "T-Bar" or center lug
styling. The case is 18 Karat Yellow Gold Plaque and measures
(not counting the stem & crown)
by 40.50mm lug to lug. The case features a display back revealing
the High Grade Movement and has Sapphire crystals.
The dial is in mint
condition and features a black enameled background with diamonds at
the 12:00, 3:00 and 9:00 hour markers with a calendar/date window at
the 6:00 position
This watch was traded
