Rado ‘Disco Volante’ 34 mm from circa 1930’s

These hard to find, round wristwatches without lugs, carry the nickname ‘Disco Volante’ (flying saucer). These watches from the 1930’s are one of these distinctive models which are popular amongst watch collectors worldwide. Rarity and quality go often hand in hand while they were made to last. This example measures 34 mm (excluding the crown), very large for that era, since most watches for men measured circa 30 mm.

Beyond its generous size, adding to the allure of this Rado Disco Volante is the captivating contrast of white Bauhaus-style numerals against the ocean-gray dial. This unique combination not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also captures light in a distinct manner, a characteristic that only vintage watches can truly embody.

The icing on the cake is its blue-steeled hands, elegantly placed sub-seconds and slim bezel, which makes this piece an impressive watch on the wrist. This testament of Swiss 1930’s horology, can be enjoyed and understood, by both the experienced collector and the first time buyer. a true gem for everyones wrist!
