hmmm... maybe it's just me, but I don't recall ever seeing a rado with a leather strap. Why don't you just go to your local rado dealer and see if you can purchase one from them? I'd assume they have the ability to order spare parts for repairs and whatnot.

You need some eccentric tastes to pull those ceramic ones off. I used to be enamoured by all of rado's designs, now, not so much.

I think one might fit here.

It struck me that were Prada to offer a high-end watch line, they would copy the Rados. I've seen some vintage Rado steel buckles, presumably for some of their "dressier" watches. I'm not sure if an authorized dealer could order one unless they were one of those dusty shops that has old stuff lying about.

This was what they've been doing for a few years.

This is what they've just came out with.

Didn't they do a collaboration with IWC? Either way, I prefer the older styles; the new ones are a bit generic, and slightly tacky. Looks like something DSquared might have. Here's a rare Rado--DIE!

Lousy pic of my newest acquisition:

UN Ulysse 1 in Platinum, Limited Ed. No. 36 (I think - don't have it on right now) of 350

This pic says a lot about your assessment of priorities in life.

Ha ha, it's my brother's car actually, but I drive an even older Toyota.

Lousy pic indeed.

I think the people deserve a better one.

Wow. It looks like an IWC. But it says "Prada" on it. Wow.
