I recently picked up a RADO Black Colt WW on EBAY. It is a model 625.3138.4, SN SN2,535,227. The movement says R2798-1 800. It is an ETA 2789-1 movement.The movement says R2798-1 800. It is an ETA 2789-1 movement. Any way to tell approximately how old it is?

5piet1 - Thanks for the Ranfft site. I'd forgotten about it. The RADO forum didn't know a whole lot about this model. However, I contacted RADO directly and received the following: RADO model 625.3138.4., produced from 1974 - 1978, material stainless steel, total quantity approx 5'000 pieces - sold worldwideprice consumer price: $300.-
This came to me from SWATCH, NJ. They had contacted RADO Switzerland.

Thanks again,

Barry B
