The Tradition Captain Cook knows how balance a retro nostalgia with a modern outlook always seeking the next adventure. A travel companion like no other.
Designed to stand the test of time, the line up is inspired by the 18th century British explorer Captain James Cook, his name is proudly written on the dial in honour of his adventures. Seeking the unknown, he ventured the coastline of the Pacific where no one had dared to explore before. His pioneering spirit and groundbreaking achievements, led him to discover and understand astronomy, anthropology and cartography. Mostly self taught, his dedication and commitment throughout his endeavours leave a lasting impression on history - never forgotten with the sporty automatic Rado timepieces.
Successfully combining the vintage charm of the sixties with the modern edge of the 21st century, the exclusive Rado Tradition Captain Cook Limited Edition brings the courageous explorer to life on the wrist. With oversized indexes and chunky arrow shaped hands, the retro brown dial is easy to read at a glance. True to Rado style, the high-tech ceramic rotating bezel unmistakably sets the brands identity and a key design feature for the collection. Fastened with the beautiful tan leather strap, the model offers a charming, elegant aesthetic limited to 1962 pieces. With a power reserve of up to 80 hours, a 100M water resistance and a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, the design ready for anything.
Joining the limited edition on an exciting voyage, is a collection of designs each showcasing their unique character through vibrant colour. Dressed in luscious green, midnight blue, stealthy black or soft grey, the fleet all impress with their contemporary yet retro vibe making waves in the industry. The newest member features a 'Ghost' grey shade, which is inspired by the colour of diving watches after being exposed to the sun, salt water and perspiration for long durations - a ghost of its former self if you like. The result, a subtle, charming hue with a ghost-like appearance to add to the collection.
Reimagining an incredible era, allows for many to reminisce without neglecting the future. Rado relates to the pioneering spirit of Captain Cook with their philosophy to “if we can imagine it, we can make it” embedded into the D.N.A of the new collection.
