It is in the nature of Rado to create striking material combinations. The Master of Materials once again returns with a unique amalgamation of past and present, featuring the historic favourite, bronze, and the modern wonder, high-tech ceramic. The culmination of such efforts is a timepiece that entrances its wearer and onlookers.
Bronze turning bezel with burgundy high-tech ceramic inserts and laser engraved numbers, all set in a brushed bronze case. The burgundy sunray brushed dial blends perfectly with the classic red-date display, while clearly contrasting with the yellow gold colour applied indexes. The indexes, numbers, hands and markers of the watch are all powered with Super-LumiNova®, ensuring that there’s clear visibility regardless of the time of the day. The main design elements of the watch remain consistent with the original 1962 Captain Cook, providing a natural vintage look. The key divergence from the original is a technological upgrade; the Captain Cook Bronze is powered with the 11½ Rado calibre 763 movement providing 80 hours power reserve.
The hardest shade to replicate in ceramics has always been tones of red, especially when it comes to the creation of watches. The watchmaker from Lengnau can now add this accomplishment to its extensive list of materials’ achievements.
The Captain Cook Bronze Burgundy is a classic embodiment of a Rado watch, featuring durable materials, striking design and high functionality that will stand the test of time. Shop the Rado Captain Cook Bronze R32504407 here.
