Past meets 2021. Rado’s iconic Captain Cook is unveiled for the first time in the Master of
Materials’ preferred material: High-Tech Ceramic.

2021: a year of hope and reinvention is the time chosen to reveal a timepiece without precedent, and that is here to revolutionise. The Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic is the culmination of many years of research and development together with the history and tradition of the Rado Captain Cook.

The further development of the Captain Cook collection in high-tech ceramic is Rado’s DNA in its purest form. It features some of the brand’s most stellar achievements such as Rado’s innovative high-tech ceramic monobloc case construction, scratch-resistant and hypoallergenic high-tech ceramic, powered by the premium Rado calibre R734 featuring a NivachronTM hairspring. The innovative NivachronTM hairspring provides an advantage in everyday life by protecting the timepiece from magnetic fields.

The Captain Cook Ceramic is presented for the first time in a case size of 43mm, and in four versions. A first version in black high-tech ceramic case and bracelet with a hardened stainless steel turning bezel and black high-tech ceramic insert. A second model holds this same case and dial but is offered with a rubber strap for those who prefer a more casual look. A third version is offered similarly in black high- tech ceramic case and bracelet but with contrasting rose gold coloured PVD coated stainless steel turning bezel, and black high-tech ceramic insert. Followed by the fourth model, a highly distinct plasma high-tech ceramic case and bracelet, with hardened stainless steel bezel, and blue high-tech ceramic insert.

All the references are powered by the Rado calibre R734 characterised by a strong 80 hours power reserve, and up to 30 bar (300m) water resistance. The dial and case back are stunningly crafted in black tinted sapphire crystal allowing its wearer to explore and admire the inner workings of the skeletonised movement in a subtle manner, whilst still proving to be legible. As the triangle on the bezel, the indexes, and the classic Captain Cook chunky arrow hands on the dial are filled with white Super- LumiNova® providing clear visibility in the dark. This magnificent sapphire dial is also home to the iconic Rado rotating anchor at 12 o’clock, and is protected by a chevé box sapphire crystal.

The new Captain Cook Ceramic is a mechanical masterpiece that needs to be felt to appreciate its lightness and wearer comfort besides its stunning looks. The Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic is Rado’s DNA at its fullest. Welcome aboard.
