Sometime in the late 1960s Rado conceived and patented the NCC system which  stands for New Conception Construction. The NCC watch concept was Rados attempt to rethink waterproofing and shockproofing a watch utilising new case design and materials.

In traditional watches the case was an integral part of waterproofing but with the NCC method the watch case merely held the waterproofing elements in place. Four screws in the case back were used to hold the front and back together. The movement and stem tube of the watch were surrounded by an elastomeric bladder.

Rado felt that such a radical leap in construction needed radical designs. Five men’s and three women’s models were designed and built between 1970 and 1978 ( the last reference of the NCC 505 was built until 1979). The design was so successful that Rado adapted the NCC 505 to a tungsten carbide case which became the Diastar 515.

This watch looks to be NOS given the incredible condition it is inane having been serviced it is now ready for immediate dispatch.

As with all of our watches it will be provided with 12 months warranty and a certificate of authenticity.

We can post worldwide and will always consider a PX against this and all of our watches.
