Rado Golden Gazelle

The Reindeer Gang - Gazelle

"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer 
Had a very shiny nose 
And if you ever saw it 
You would even say it glows..."

In this Christmas festive mood.... Joy to the World!!! Eeerrrrerrrr we are talking about a type of deer here, but not Rudolph.... Rudolph would be dead tiring after the Silent Night rush. Although, I have been a good boy for the last 365 days, I think he missed my house...... 

This is a 1960's and 70's Rado Golden Gazelle. It is measuring 35mm excluding crown. The chunky stainless steel case is finely brushed. 

The watch has a fluted bezel and with mineral glass. 

This watch has a very gorgeous-looking grey silver gradient dial. It has the famous rotating Rado Anchor logo. There is also a Golden Gazelle emblem at 9 o'clock position. 

The hour and minute hand have a very bold black highlight insert. The second hand is black in colour. 

The bracelet is still the original single solid link with the Anchor logo and Rado embossing at its clasp.

The crown is with the anchor logo signed. It is semi concealed into the case. 

This Golden Gazelle has screw in stainless steel back case. Apart from the word Rado, it has an anchor and double sea horses engraving at the center. 

This watch comes with a 25 Jewels automatic ETA 2789 movement. It is the first calibre with quickset day date function. It runs at 21,600 bph and has a power reserve of 45 hours.
