Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Limited Edition

For the first time in full ceramic, apart from the case back, the latest and most innovative Captain Cook yet makes a remarkable entry, with space-age materials throughout and, of course, tasteful stylistic reminders of its proud tradition. Inside, a brand-new automatic movement is sure to tease the heart of true watch lovers, with its finely sculpted, skeletonized platine and exquisite geometry, visual features absolutely matched by the movement's exceptional precision and 80 hours of power reserve. These workings were specially crafted for this Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Limited Edition, with a production run of only 1962 units.

From its inception, the Captain Cook line was associated with strong character and uncompromising innovation in both design and materials. The latest in the series again breaks new ground, with a full- ceramic rotating bezel sporting a black, laser-etched ceramic insert with bright, bold numbers and markers in stylish relief. Next to the matt-black high-tech ceramic case and its slightly smoky sapphire dial surface, the design shows that uncompromising character so much in keeping with well-known, recognizable Captain Cook tradition.

The watch lover's eye is immediately captured. The visual composition is rhythmic and strong, between the bezel markers, numerals, and the dial's large indices behind the box-shaped sapphire crystal so typical of the Captain Cook. The hour and minute hands, visible even in low-light conditions thanks to the Super- LumiNova® treatment and their broad, almost playful shapes, carry the theme onward, for this exquisite timepiece with zero compromise, anywhere. The original Captain Cook has come of age, with the best of its strong visual tradition enhanced by Rado's Art of Ceramic and truly cutting-edge 2022 technology.

Rado's ingenious use of a monobloc design allows for a thinner case than one would have predicted, in such a virile timepiece. Inside, a three-hand, 25-jewel, state-of-the-art R808 movement exceeds standard accuracy test requirements from 3 to 5 positions, thanks to its antimagnetic NivachronTM hairspring and uncompromising Rado production technics. The smoky crystal atmosphere carries over into the PVD- treated titanium case back and its black-tinted sapphire crystal window, allowing a treasured glimpse into the exquisite movement's airy, open, horizontal platine design and its Côtes-de-Genève engraving, as well as the yellow-finished train bridge. Everywhere in the visual design of the new Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Limited Edition, one finds subtle, tasteful contrasts and accents, signs of a product line that has now fully matured. Rarely does a timepiece bring together to such an extent, modern materials technology and the finest in the timepiece designer's art, visible down into the smallest detail. Here, even the automatic movement's oscillating weight echoes the shape of the famous Rado anchor, something that real connoisseurs are sure to notice. Beautifully rounding out the design is a matt-black bracelet in high-tech ceramic, with a titanium triple-fold clasp equipped with ceramic push-buttons. Maturity in the watchmaker's art, from the Master of Materials.
