Seems like there's not much Rado lovers on this forum. And frankly, while I did have an interest when looking at them, the urge to get one just doesn't happen.

Nice classic piece this one.

That's a nice way to say 'emerging market'....

It was popular here too about 30-35 years ago.

Hey guys...thought I'd post in this old thread...

I have a very old similar Rado Diastar as above...it's been sitting with the watch repairer for months now as he is unable to find a replacement part that is now obsolete (step lever or something).

Anyone has any good 'lubang' / watch repair sifu's that can help?

I serviced the watch last year with this shop (it's actually an authorized repairer for few swiss brands - not Rado though) - he gave me a personal warranty of 1 year, but now that I've gone back for warranty - the part is unavailable.

Hope anyone here can help my predicament. The watch runs, but the quick set date is no longer functioning.

Thanks guys
