A bronzed Adonis
(Lengnau, Switzerland – Nov 2020) A flawless physique and looks that can drive others to distraction. The new Rado Captain Cook in bronze and high-tech ceramic lives up to its billing. This is a strong look in a muscular watch, created by combining the oldest man-made material with a modern materials marvel. This is where our passion lies, where we do our best work – and you can feel it!
The Captain Cook’s striking good looks come from the lush green and earthy bronze tones. These are colours from nature that bring out the best in each other and make each other ‘pop’. It’s a winning combination that is designed to stand the test of time and transcend trends.
Its perfectly toned body is a combination of a bronze case, box-shaped sapphire crystal, bronze bezel with high-tech ceramic insert and a titanium case back with sapphire crystal. The dark green leather strap offers the perfect finish for such a handsome specimen.
The Captain Cook’s smooth operation is balanced by its impressive stamina. Both are provided by the high-quality, Swiss made Rado calibre 763 movement, which offers up to 80 hours of precision power before it needs to be worn or wound.
Ancient and modern, vintage and contemporary, traditional and innovative, enduring and evolving: the Rado Captain Cook Bronze is a watch of contrasts. Designed to look good for life, it is a legend in its own lifetime.
