Love the RO Chrono. I almost bought the blue dialled version instead of my Dualtime, but opted for the latter because it was a more useful complication for me.

Another Jumbo owner... Excellent! I'm so in love/lust with mine that my other watches rarely get wrist time these days.

Thanks.

Funny. I really like the dual time and I toyed with the idea getting one. I just don't have much need for a second time zone. I guess you can't go wrong either way. Enjoy yours

the Rado gift conundrum!

so I just received this in the mail, out of the blue... didn't pick it out or even know it was coming although I'm happy to say it fit perfectly, just not so sure about keeping it.




was thinking about this as well, but have yet to try it on.




for those of you wondering "why the hell would you get a Rado?" ..... it's a (semi) long story, but let's just say it involves family! happy.gif

Good gosh you guys are killing it with the RO's.  I'm sure I'm not the only one very jealous ...

Can't say I am a fan of that watch but it was a gift.  Looks like they started with a bracelet and added the watch mechanism.  On another note I have seen quite a few Rado's since you first mentioned it.  Before that I had never seen one.

 

suaviter - I'm sure all the RO have not's (I am included) have a RO on their list.  The Jumbo seems to be hard to find at the 39mm size.  

 

Wear them in good health everyone!

Me too, but I'll settle for a 15202.

While I think the one you were considering looks cleaner than the one you were sent.  Its from family, and its a gift, so maybe at the end of the day just keep the one you got in case you see this relative in the future.  It wasn't your dream brand to begin with so maybe it doesn't matter so much which one you get.  Just my 2 cents.

Thanks Jbarwick.  Also, just wanted to clarify only the 39mm Ultra flat RO is what people commonly refer to as a "Jumbo."  In recent years it has carried reference number 15202.  Its based on the original RO ultra-thin case and ultra-thin movement 2121 from 1972...and back then 39 mm was a large watch.  There have been other 39mm ROs such as ref 15300 (or the current Dual Time & current Day-Date/calendar watch),  and there are larger watches at 41mm such as the 15400... but none of them are Jumbos, even though the are the same size or larger.
