Watch Out: The Rado Captain Cook Bronze Automatic
The tale of the Rado Captain Cook goes way back to the 1960s. The First Captain Cook was created in 1962, to be precise. It was a really good divers’ watch that was counted among the greats of that era. In 2017, Rado re-launched this watch under the HyperChrome collection as the HyperChrome Captain Cook. The timepiece was elegant, classy, and of course, highly functional. Now, in 2020, we have ourselves the Captain Cook Bronze Automatic. The new line of Rado Captain Cook Bronze watches has three colours – bright green, deep blue, and grey. The watches not only look fun, they are also carriers of the modern-day horological ideology which is to less of a purist. Let’s admit it, being a purist limits a lot of options and it eventually gets dull. Rado is trying new things. The new Captain Cook timepieces are closer to the fashion watch segment than any of its predecessors. It lacks the vintage Rado charm that can be seen in many of the watches in the brand’s catalogue.
