IN-DEPTH: The Rado HyperChrome Captain Cook

Postby Racer-X » June 6th 2017, 4:55pm

by Felix Scholz "Who expected a drool-worthy heritage reissue from ceramic focused Rado at Baselworld? No one, that’s who. While Rado is particularly well-known for their use of high-tech ceramic and hard metals, they’ve got a long history in water resistant and dive watches, launching their sporty ‘Green Horse’ series of watches (with a particularly cute seahorses logo on the dial) in 1958. In 1962 they released a simple little dive watch called the ‘Captain Cook’."

I like it. Not enough to drop that kind of coin though.

It's Rado - wait it out.
