A reimagined classic

Our Top Picks from Rado’s New Captain Cook Collection


September 25, 2019 Sponsored By

Originally introduced in 1962, Rado’s Captain Cook is back. This classic diver is back from the deep, new and improved for the 21st Century. The latest has been created with all the vintage details that made it a classic along with up-to-date features that make it a perfect fit for modern wearers. The Captain Cook is a watch designed to stand the test of time — not a vintage throwback. This new interpretation of the classic plays with new shapes, colors and materials made to suit modern proportions. Drawing on all the great design that made the original 1962 model a roaring success and using signature materials that have been used in Rado models through the years, the new Captain Cook collection brings together all of Rado’s milestone moments.

Each of the new Captain Cook’s are made with 42mm cases with a high-quality Swiss automatic movement that boasts up to 80 hours of power reserve. Equipped with the EasyClip system allows you to change the strap quickly and easily customize your watch to make it your own. With a variety of different dials and bezels — made of high-tech ceramic which offers more protection from scratches than the usual Stainless Steel — it is easy to find the Captain Cook that will speak to you.

The Black Dial Captian Cook

The original rice grain bracelet that made the Captain Cook the legend it is today: You can’t get more classic than this configuration, including the black dial working bezel. This silver stainless steel will look good on any man.

The Green Dial Captian Cook

Of course, the new generation of Captain Cook’s are all water-resistant to up to 20 bars — that’s 200 meters for you landlubbers out there — so you can take it out and take it for a spin (or swim, if you will). This regal green Captain Cook may look better on land all the same. The emerald dial and bezel is a gorgeous statement.

The Blue Dial Captain Cook

The polished stainless steel case is hard to beat with this deep blue dial and bezel combo. This bezel is a bit different from the rest, made of stainless steel with a polished blue high-tech ceramic insert. When paired with the simple leather strap, it looks ready for any adventure you could imagine — on land, sea or air. The box-shaped sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating means you can lose yourself in that deep ocean blue coloring.
