Rado's New Timepiece Pays Homage to the Brand's Timeless Captain Cook Watch

By Gary Duff | April 22, 2019 | Watches & Jewelry National

The limited-edition Captain Cook watch from Rado is a timeless new timepiece.


The piece—a nod to the Swiss watchmaker's original Captain Cook timepiece, which was originally produced between 1962 to 1968—is part of a limited-run collection (only 1,962 pieces will be released), truly making it a collector's item.

Those that purchase the watch—retailing at $2,100—will also receive a leather travel pouch that contains three stylish straps that are easily swapped to match a variety of looks.


Identical to the original Captain Cook piece is the watch's 37 millimeter stainless steel case and seahorse emblazoned backing. The timepiece's diver’s style turning bezel, the date in red and the distinctive sword and arrow-shaped hands are some of the best-loved original Captain Cook features included as well.

The new Captain Cook timepiece can be purchased online.
