Celebrating its association with Bollywood megastar Hrithik Roshan, Swiss watch brand Rado has created a special edition Captain Cook model.
The Hrithik Roshan Special Edition is a fresh iteration of the iconic Captain Cook in Rado’s signature high-tech ceramic. Paying homage to vintage Captain Cook look and feel, this new timepiece features a box-shaped sapphire crystal with a unique ‘bubble’ look.
The tinted black crystal protects a cut-away dial that offers fascinating views of the Rado 734 calibre. The antimagnetic Nivachron™ hairspring improves reliability by protecting the movement from magnetic fields, and while industry standards require testing in 3 positions, Rado tests each watch in 5 different positions, further enhancing its reliable accuracy. It offers an 80-hour power reserve.
A closer look at the new Hrithik Roshan Special Edition shows the case to be a monobloc construction in matt plasma high-tech ceramic. Framing the dial is a rose gold coloured stainless steel turning bezel with plasma high-tech ceramic inlay and rose gold coloured lacquered numbers, markers and triangle.
Super-LumiNova® highlights on the rose gold coloured hands and applied indexes stand out in strong contrast against the black dial. The case back in brushed titanium presents a tinted black sapphire crystal embellished with the metallised rose gold coloured script: HRITHIK ROSHAN SPECIAL EDITION.
The 43-mm diameter watch case is held securely on the wrist by a high-tech ceramic 3-row bracelet with matt plasma outer links and polished plasma high-tech ceramic middle links.
The Rado Captain Cook High Tech Ceramic Hrithik Roshan Special Edition is presented in special packaging and accompanied by a certificate.
