Introducing the Rado HyperChrome Captain Cook

26 March 2017

A reinterpretation of a Rado watch collection from the 1960s, the new Rado HyperChrome Captain Cook family offers a trio of timekeepers for men and women who want to pull off a hip casual look with style and whimsy. Oversized indexes, chunky arrow-shaped hands, and a rotating bezel in high-tech ceramic and stainless steel or titanium combine to give the Captain Cook an unmistakably playful aesthetic.

Two 37 mm models steal the spotlight with distinct masculine and feminine looks. The HyperChrome Captain Cook’s most ladylike iteration features a silvery, slightly raised dial studded with eight Top Wesselton diamonds. A white high-tech ceramic bezel and fine-knit metal Milanese band combine for a luxe yet sporty feel. The gent's version boasts a darker colour scheme and a black high-tech ceramic bezel with a complementary brown vintage leather strap. In a nod to the launch year of the original Captain Cook collection, this gent’s timepiece is limited to 1962 pieces.

For an even bigger impact on the wrist, wearers can opt for the 45 mm model, which is sure to grab attention with its show-off size and unapologetically throwback approach to timekeeping. The pleasantly chunky case features a versatile blue colour scheme and fastens to the wrist with a comfortable black or blue textile strap.
