I bought the same watch recently and have the same problem. The hours can be adjusted in the dual time zone by looking up the manual, but the minutes stay put. I can't bring them to blink so that these could be adjusted. Any ideas? I sent a mail to Rado through their website but no answer.

That links are most likely ceramic! Take your watch to a reputable watch repair shop...they break very EASY! Make sure they know what they are doing!!!!

The shaking is not the best way to restart the automatic watch as it puts slight strain on watch balance wheel and hairspring (most delicate part in watch).
As watch balance wheel is positioned paralel(leveled) to watch dial, you have to spin your watch back and forth a few times quite quickly.
(Imagine you are turning steering wheel in your car- thats the right motion). Before doing that wind up your watch a few times manually.
Right after doing that observe the seconds hand and if it is ticking just a little bit or ticking back and forth and then stops- your watch has jammed gear train and this is the reason why it stops.
If you don't have seconds hand- after shaking your watch listen for ticking and again- if it stops after short run, the gear train is to blame. In this case you will need watchmakers help as special skills and tools are needed to sort this out.
Do not forget to rate, please.

your problem is in setting lever,when the setting lever is jumping the stem cannot get back and lock,you better unscrew the complete barrel drum bridge plate take it out ,and the winding pinion is expose,take the winding gear and the setting lever is expose then arrange the alignment,align the winding pinion to the setting lever,alignment is ok.back bridge plate and screw,,make some winding of the crown,let see rachet wheel can turn transmission wheel of complete barrel drum,if can then checked the stem if already lock.,if lock already the job is done,...email if you some question regarding a watch ;firstname.lastname@example.org
