"A watch as spectacular as the district itself"
The original version of the Rado Manhattan was produced from 1965 to 1973, and it was aimed at the American market with the intention of leveraging recent attention gained by the pioneering, ultra scratch-resistant Rado DiaStar. The watch stood out for its exceptional design, and for the Rado typical resistance to scratches.
The beginnings of the Rado company date back to 1917. At that time, the brothers Fritz, Ernst and Werner Schlup founded a raw movement factory in their parents' house at Bielstrasse 41 in Lengnau under the name Schlup & Co. Production was mainly for the American market. In 1938, the Rado Watch Co. was founded as a subsidiary in the same house to offer complete watches, both under the Rado name and under various private labels (see below). From the early 1940s, complete watches were also sold under the Exacto name. Dr. Paul Lüthi, the son-in-law of one of the founders, joined the company in 1947 and successfully established this brand in the South American market. However, since the word "exacto" means "exact" in Spanish and is therefore a general term and a sign of quality, it could not be registered as a brand name in countries where Spanish was the official language. Also, in the USA, the name "Exacto" was already registered for another watch manufacturer. Therefore, in 1957, the brand name Exacto was abandoned and the complete watch production was concentrated on the brand name Rado. In addition to the Rado lettering, the Anker logo served as the logo, which was designed to be movable in the automatic models and guaranteed a high recognition value. Lüthi was already very successful at this time in tapping the markets in the Middle and Far East with a wide variety of models and designs.
