Rado is participating in the special auction “The Pink Dial Project”, organised to mark Breast Cancer Awareness month, in October 2021. Created by Revolution and other key industry publications, the event will raise funds for research, treatment and greater awareness for this important cause.
Along with a number of other high-end brands, Rado will contribute a one-off version of its famous Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic timepiece, with special pink detailing as well as commemorative markings.
The Captain Cook model is one of Rado’s most iconic timepieces. Bold and expressive in design, it is also built using the most cutting-edge technologies: a matt plasma high-tech ceramic case with monobloc construction, an R734 automatic movement with an 80-hour power reserve and Nivachron™ antimagnetic hairspring, as well as a contrasting matt/polished plasma ceramic-link bracelet and a titanium triple-fold clasp with Ceramos™ release.
Apart from its unique trim, this one-of-a-kind timepiece will be identical to the original model, with the same high-end R734 movement with 80-hour power reserve, a boxed sapphire crystal with antireflective coating on both faces, as well as a contrasting matt/polished plasma ceramic-link bracelet and a titanium triple-fold clasp with Ceramos™ release.
For the fundraising special event “The Pink Dial Project”, the one-off timepiece to be auctioned will feature, inside the stainless steel bezel with matt plasma ceramic insert, a stunning pink flange to honour the colour internationally associated with breast cancer. Neatly, the colour complements the ruby backplate and rhodium tone of the moving-anchor symbol beautifully.
Its case-back will also carry an engraved, special decoration with the organiser’s “REVOLUTION” logo and the mention “UNIQUE PIECE” to ensure that the event and charitable cause will long be remembered.
Other features such as the box-shaped sapphire crystal with antireflective coating on both faces, the appliquéd indices and rhodium-coloured hands, both treated with white Super-LumiNova®, and water resistance to a pressure of 30 bar (300m) are identical to those of other Captain Cook models.
