In a rugged world of increasingly challenging times and harsh climates, those able to adapt hold a critical advantage.
The new Rado Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver embodies versatility and brawn beautifully. A true-blue diving watch equipped with the latest technology, this latest evolution of an early classic now features 80 hours of power reserve and water resistance of up to a whopping 300m.
In this skillfully crafted timepiece with famous Swiss reliability, a Rado R763 movement is set inside a stunning high-tech ceramic monobloc case that is at once scratch-resistant, hypo-allergenic and practically invulnerable, ready to match any challenge, in wilderness or everyday life.
The new Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver is the culmination of decades of research and development by Rado, Switzerland’s well known “Master of Materials”. This much-awaited model, available in six equally impressive variants, brings together the latest in high-tech ceramic production techniques and the brand’s most innovative watchmaking. The new diver is a virile, exploration-inspired 43mm timepiece with a latest-generation automatic movement, Nivachron anti-magnetic hairspring and 80 hours of power reserve.
Timepiece lovers will spot notable Captain Cook features such as the date window at 3 o’clock with red numbers—a wink to earlier editions—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. Whether your field of exploration is one of the world’s oceans, thick Nordic forests or rugged alpine wilderness, your Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver will be a reliable and solid partner, at your side for years to come.
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-minute position.
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. While all carry cases in Rado high-tech ceramic, two models wear black and two wear olive-green, each pair available as either a rubber-strap or high-tech ceramic-bracelet version. Two additional plasma models are available, with matching high-tech ceramic bracelet. With the Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver, life will be the due reward of unwavering explorers who dare to go beyond.
Behind, a circular-brushed titanium press-fit case-back with two seahorses resting quietly in exquisite relief, adds an echo of early Sixties models and an unequivocal reminder of the water resistance, confirmed by the ISO 6425 certification.
