Rado Watch Repair and Service
The history of Rado begins in 1917 in the small Swiss town of Lengnau, when the three brothers Fritz, Ernst, and Werner Schlup open the Schlup & Co. clockwork factory. Exactly 40 years later, it becomes Rado Uhren AG: in 1957, the first watch collection is presented under this name – the beginning of an unusual success story. The cornerstone for its international success story was, however, laid by Rado in 1962. At that time, the Swiss watch company surprised the world with a revolutionary invention.
The Rado DiaStar, the first truly scratch-resistant watch ever, sporting a case made of sintered tungsten carbide. In 1985 the parent company, Swatch Group, decided to utilize Rado’s know-how and its extensive experience in developing materials.
Repairing your Rado Watch
Like any high-precision instrument, your Rado watch needs to be serviced regularly in order to work perfectly. Rado recommends complete maintenance repair work done every 3-5 years and partial maintenance work done each time a battery is replaced. Here are the procedures –
- Partial Maintenance (when the battery is changed)
- Replacement of all gaskets using only Rado parts
- Restoration of water resistance to Rado factory specs
- Ultrasonic cleaning of case and bracelet
- Final visual and technical inspection
Complete Maintenance (every 4-5 years) –
- Disassembly of the movement and replace any worn or broken parts with genuine Rado replacement parts.
- The watch is then reassembled, oiled and timed to Rado factory standards
- Then I replace all gaskets and restore the water resistance to original Rado factory specifications
- The case and bracelet are refinished (where applicable)
- The watch is inspected and tested for 72 hours before it is ready for delivery to my customer.

About Attractions in Midtown near Central Park, New York City, NY
Did you know…that Lower Manhattan was once home to the city’s premiere theater district? Throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, Lower Manhattan was home to a burgeoning theatrical center, with theater houses cropping up around City Hall on Nassau and Beekman Streets and Park Row, among other areas. Featuring everything from opera and ballet to comedies, as well as musicals and Shakespearean plays, theater grew in popularity throughout the city. However, by the mid-1800s, theater houses migrated progressively north to the more affluent districts of Manhattan, settling in present-day midtown.
