Radiomir Models Help Needed!

Hi All,

I am looking at simple base model Radiomirs, with only 3, 6, 9, 12 on the dial. Nothing else. So far Iíve found the current 753 and 210, with the 210 produced up until 2012. Are there any other models I missed that are just like this? Was there a model in between the 753 and 210?

Thanks!!

You have the regular production 610 and the two specials from 2017: 720 and 721.

I am also looking for exactly that and have narrowed it down to a 210, 232 or 720/721. The 753 has a snap-on case back and is a no-go for me. My local dealer still has a 721 unsold, apparently the anonymous dial isn't for everyone.

Awesome, thanks all! I forgot to mention I prefer 45mm since thatís already pushing my dainty 6.5Ē wrists.

Looks like 753, 610, and 210 is my list there then?

Why exactly is a snap-on back case? I have read this at several places but unsure of the pros and cons. Can you help to elaborate? Thank you!

I have a 6.5” wrist and the 232 is thin and wear phenomenal. That is why it is the best. Big dial, wears small. Brown perfection. Just get it. I had a 210 and 190 also. Down to the 232.

The only Radiomir that felt right until 720/721, was the 232. Just superb. Definitely would be the one I’d choose.

I own the 720 and could not be more pleased. The 232 and the 190 both bring a premium but are cool watches. The service history would also play into my decision as if it must go in for a service you can add another $750-1000 to your cost.

Here is a quote from me regarding this "Sometimes I think they have too many variants, I might never be able to make up my mind.".

It is from this thread which has a discussion regarding the snap-on case backs:
https://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=625737

Anyway... I forget there are two other models which fit the description approximately, the 685 and 687.

Oh, I still haven't pulled the trigger myself.
