Rado Launches Hyperchrome Series Captain Cook Watch
Swiss pioneer watch brand RADO Swiss Radar launched a new interpretation of the nostalgic Captain Cook series, in order to continue the brand’s retro trend. As a new interpretation of the RADO Swiss Rado watch series in the 1960s, the three HyperChrome Captain Cook watches are a fusion of casual style and whimsy. They are an excellent choice for individual men and women.
This watch collection is named after the 18th century British explorer Captain James Cook. The explorer was a masterless man. He used his vast knowledge of cartography, anthropology, and astronomy to map thousands of miles of unexplored coastline at that time.
As a pioneering Swiss watchmaking brand known for pioneering spirit and breakthrough achievements, RADO is proud to introduce this dynamic new automatic mechanical retro timepiece series, which is named after Captain Cook.
Retro timing, classic rebirth
Oversized scale, exaggerated arrow-shaped hands and high-tech ceramic, stainless steel or titanium rotating bezel, three extraordinary elements complement each other, giving HyperChrome the Captain Cook watch’s self-evident playful beauty.
Two 37 mm diameter models have attracted much attention due to their feminine or masculine appearance. The ladies in the HyperChrome Captain Cook watch are known for their elegance. The slightly raised dial is unique, and it is embellished with eight top Wesselton diamonds. The combination of a white high-tech ceramic bezel and an exquisite Milanese mesh metal bracelet creates a marvelous look that is both luxurious and sporty. The men’s model is proud of its deeper color scheme and black high-tech ceramic bezel design. The brown vintage leather strap further adds an extraordinary texture to the watch. In tribute to the year of the original Captain Cook collection, the men’s watch is limited to 1962 pieces.
The wearer can also choose a 45mm diameter watch to highlight its extraordinary pursuit of personality, the eye-catching size of the watch and the distinctive retro style will make it the focus of sight. The exquisite and generous case uses a versatile blue tone and is fastened to the wrist with a comfortable black or blue fabric strap.
The HyperChrome Captain Cook watch is the second watch series from the 1960s that RADO has upgraded and launched over the years. In 2016, RADO launched a super-massive HyperChrome 1616 watch, which is a reinterpretation of the classic Horn angle series.
