Rado Launches New Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver

In a world full of challenges, those who can adapt have a better chance of survival. The Rado DNA is a true reflection of this eternal principle, and the new Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver embodies it perfectly. This latest version of an early classic is equipped with the latest technology, including 80 hours of power reserve and water resistance to strict ISO 6425 specifications. A Rado R763 movement is set inside a stunning high-tech ceramic monobloc case that is scratch-resistant, hypo-allergenic and practically indestructible. This skillfully crafted timepiece with famous Swiss reliability is ready to match any challenge, in the wilderness or in everyday life.

Rado, Switzerland’s well-known “Master of Materials”, has created the new Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver. This much-awaited model is available in six variants and brings together the latest in high-tech ceramic production technics and the brand’s most innovative watchmaking. The new diver is a 43 mm timepiece with a latest-generation automatic movement, NivachronTM anti-magnetic hairspring and 80 hours of power reserve, tucked inside a practically eternal high-tech ceramic monobloc case.

Timepiece lovers will spot notable Captain Cook features such as the date window at 3 o’clock with red numbers—a wink to earlier editions—and the box-shaped glass, now in extremely scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both faces. Large, highly-legible hour, minute and second hands are treated with Super-LumiNova® for excellent viewing in low-light conditions, along with the main markers and bezel numerals. The new model features ISO 6425 certification, a first for Rado, largely surpassed thanks to its 300-meter water resistance. Whether your field of exploration is one of the world’s oceans, thick nordic forests or rugged alpine wilderness, your Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver will be a reliable and solid partner, at your side for years to come.

The new Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver comes in six models, each with a distinct character. The cases are made of Rado high-tech ceramic, and two models come with a black case and two with an olive-green case. The bracelet is made of high-tech ceramic, and the two additional plasma models come with a matching high-tech ceramic bracelet.
