Rado Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver

Rado presents the new Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver, an ISO 6425 certified diving timepiece equipped with a new generation self-winding movement. Its stunning high-tech ceramic monobloc case is scratch-resistant, hypo-allergenic and practically invulnerable.

This much-awaited model, available in six equally impressive variants, brings together the latest in high-tech ceramic production technics and the brand’s most innovative watchmaking. The 43 mm timepiece houses a latest-generation automatic movement, NivachronTM anti-magnetic hairspring and 80 hours of power reserve.

This timepiece boasts emblematic Captain Cook features such as the date window at 3 o’clock with red numbers and the box-shaped glass, now in extremely scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both faces.

Large, highly-legible hour, minute and second hands are treated with Super-LumiNova for excellent viewing in low-light conditions, along with the main markers and bezel numerals. The new model features ISO 6425 certification, a first for Rado, largely surpassed thanks to its 300-meter water resistance.

Rooted in nature but developed by keen human innovation, Rado high-tech ceramic is extremely hard but light, lovely to touch, and carries its visible colour right into the core, making it extraordinarily scratch-resistant. The use of a monobloc case adds to the structural stability of the timepiece while keeping its outer dimensions and weight lower, for greater comfort.

Visually, well-known Captain Cook features are instantly recognizable: the bold, easy-grip bezel with circular-brushed high-tech ceramic insert, engraved numbers and markers, as well as a triangle in white Super-LumiNova at the 60-min. position.

The circular-brushed titanium press-fit case back with two seahorses adds an echo of early Sixties models and an unequivocal reminder of the water resistance, confirmed by the ISO 6425 certification granted to these exceptional timepieces. Inside, the Rado 25-jewel, three-hand R763 automatic movement exceeds standard accuracy test requirements by a full five points.

Rado Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic DIVER

The new Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver comes in six models, each one with a distinct character, to match the most discerning tastes of true watch lovers.
