Some decent looking lume there Chris. How does the overall quality of the Rado stack up against the usual suspects?

It's a nice watch and the lume is pretty decent with that shot taken after being outside for a couple of minutes on a wet and cloudy morning.

Originally the watch was on the Rado blue fabric strap, which is ok but it's made of quite a hard fabric especially near to the lugs with very little give, so that's now back in the box and currently on a Barton Silicone strap and transformed how the watch feels instantly. I thought it was a 22mm lug, but it's actually 24mm. :shock:

Other points, it's big (felt bigger on the Rado strap) has a nice bezel that's a bit different because it's not flat and I like the contrast of the case which is hardened titanium against the edge of the bezel in s/s. Despite it being titanium on the wrist it's weight feels more like s/steel to me.

I find the crown texture/material/size could be better as my fingers struggle to get a good purchase when setting the watch, but other than that I think it's a great watch.
