    If that was on Antiques Roadshow they would call it Early Grotesque.

    Each to his own though (luckily)

    Well, certainly a talking point. I wonder if the anchor swings freely (as on current models)?

    It's so ugly I love it

    I like that, enough to start googling (but not bidding, don’t worry :)). Looks like the anchor does move. NCC = New Case Concept.

    I look forward to some pics.

    Is it the Rado 'Edsel' model?

    Don't like the Rado, but don't mind the Rolex.

    My thing with these over the top watches is that if you are going to be over the top, then go all the way.

    I think that style of watch will now forever be known as the "Toilet seat" You may have started a whole new watch term there. Chronograph.....day date......time only......toilet seat......lol

    I hope the OP doesn’t mind but here are some examples of the rest of the range, starting with the NCC101

    Hey I don't mind at all, I like them, true 70s style. The Diastsr however is current and still an acquired taste.

    Be honest you ran it through a "funfair house of mirrors" type of app first, right? Please?

    IIRC it was a feature at Blenheim Palace; it became a news item when it was stolen. The thief was not apprehended as the local Police said that (all together now) they didn't have anything to go on.

    Am I the only one who thinks those other Rados make the one in the first post look good?
