Rado updates its classic diving watch with three stylish new designs combining its rich heritage with a modern touch

Watches & Jewellery 16 Jun 2022

Originally making its debut in 1962, the Captain Cook was Rado’s first diving watch and remains at the heart of its collections. As the brand launches the latest additions to the family, it stays true to its heritage charm while incorporating a number of aesthetic and technical touches fit for modern-day adventures. 

The three new models come in a comfortable 43mm case, slimmed down thanks to the R801 automatic chronograph movement, which offers precision, reliability and a handy 59 hours of power reserve. Performance in all conditions is essential, with the watch offering water resistance to 300 metres, bolstered by its secure screw-down caseback, crown and push buttons. Meanwhile, the Super-LumiNova across the dial ensures legibility on the deepest of dives. 

For those planning to stay on shore, it also brings style across a choice of colours and materials. Make a statement with the bold bronze options, a material often used in the nautical world, here paired with a blue dial and bezel. For a sportier look, stainless steel versions come with silvery-black and blue gradient dials. Each comes with complementary hued leather and Nato-style straps, while the latter models are also presented on a stainless steel option, all able to be easily switched depending on the occasion with Rado’s EasyClip system.
