How do you pronounce "RADO"?

I just won my first one on ebay. It's all gold, with floating hour markers, automatic, 25 jewel, with day-date at the 6 position. I'm new to watch collecting and have always liked the way RADO's look, but I honestly don't recall ever hearing someone pronounce it. I've seen some favorable comments on hear about them, so I thought I'd pick one up. I got it for $99. Was that a fair price?
By the way, I love this site!
Thanks,
Ed

Answer:
It's a regional thing. Either should be acceptable. Just don't say Ray-do. I would consider that to be completely wrong.

Voyagers are pretty typical of Rado's 1970s futuristic design. All Rados are good watches, $99 seems pretty reasonable if the condition is good. Congratulations.

Answer:
It's coming from Manila to Pennsylvania, so I should have it in a week.
I just received the Hamilton Ventura that I bought from Girard's Vintage Watches. I wish I could have afforded an original, but my new one (stainless with black face)will do for now. I can't wait to wear it. He shipped quickly.
