Rado is proud to launch a brand-new group of Captain Cook watches within its exciting new merchandise choice. Do not think classic, think lively. Forget traditional and think pioneering. Shapes, colours, materials and an eye for enduring design unite on 42 millimeter models which are created to match modern proportions.
Drawing on all of the great components that created the 1962 original a roaring success, and utilizing signature substances which have appeared on favourite Rado models through the years, the newest Captain Cook collection brings all Rado’s milestone moments together for optimum impact.
Shapes happen to be significant at Rado and they form the basis of the year’s Captain Cook collection. The sword and arrow palms and curved dial are as unique as they are authentic, the wedge shaped indicators are luminescent as well as interesting.
The original concave turning bezel now benefits from a durable high-tech ceramic inlay. Rado has been utilizing this wonderful substance since 1986. The new ceramic bezel inlay appears in black — the color first used on the revolutionary Integral from 1986.
Typical Rado colors are just another striking element of this new collection. Green, blue and brown variations — colours initially introduced Rado on the genuine collection in 2016 — create their Captain Cook debut in matching mixtures of dials and bezels.
The sapphire crystal — first introduced to the Diastar 1 in 1962 and now a characteristic of Rado watches — replaces the acrylic glass of the first, including scratch resistance while retaining its bubble-effect box form.
The famous shifting anchor emblem, which is now a characteristic of Rado automatic watches, has a brand new’60s inspired crimson background. It represents precision and quality just as it did in 1962. These new versions feature the more powerful Swiss created, high- quality C07 movement with extended 80 hour power reserve — a must for contemporary wearers.
For this latest Captain Cook, Rado has drawn on six decades of expertise, reinvigorated an iconic Rado name and united its biggest and greatest milestones to create a collection that is certain to create waves.
