Presented for the first time in full ceramic, this new Rado Captain Cook model is a limited edition of only 1962 units. It comes with a matt-black high-tech ceramic case and slightly smoky sapphire dial surface.
In addition, the Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic watch features a full-ceramic rotating bezel sporting a black, laser-etched ceramic insert with bright, bold numbers and markers in stylish relief.
The visual composition is rhythmic and strong, between the bezel markers, numerals, and the dial’s large indices behind the box-shaped sapphire crystal so typical of the Captain Cook. The hour and minute hands are visible even in low-light conditions thanks to the Super-LumiNova® treatment.
Rado’s ingenious use of a monobloc design allows for a thinner case. Driving the three-hand display, the 25-jewel self-winding calibre incorporates the antimagnetic NivachronTM hairspring. The PVD titanium case back has a black-tinted sapphire crystal window that offers the views of the exquisite movement.
The Rado calibre R808 stands out with its airy, open, horizontal platine design and its Côtes-de-Genève engraving, as well as the yellow-finished train bridge. The oscillating weight echoes the shape of the famous Rado anchor.
The Rado Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic watch comes with a matt-black bracelet in high-tech ceramic, with a titanium triple-fold clasp equipped with ceramic push-buttons.
