Rado’s new edition Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Skeleton watch sports a unique colorway and innovative movement
Skeleton watches are not new to Rado’s watchmaking prowess. Over the years, such models have been through some stunning color combinations. Following on the success from the past, Rado introduces Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Skeleton watch in a fresh plasma and rose gold color scheme.
The latest addition to the Captain Cook line, this High-Tech Ceramic Skeleton, in addition to flaunting plasma colorway (Rado’s interpretation of gunmetal silver) with gold assents, is powered by an innovative R808 mechanical movement, which is a true masterpiece of creativity, technical skill, and contrasts.
This stunning 43mm watch is the first to imbibe this unique colorway and exploit the diversity of ceramic. With a thickness of 14.6mm and a dimension of 43.0mm thick, the matt-finished monobloc case of the watch is beautifully encircled by a brushed plasma high-tech ceramic bezel insert that complements the case styling.
The rotatable bezel of the Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Skeleton houses a bright rose-gold-hued index ring, while its minimalistic dial features hour, minute, and seconds hands treated with white Super-LumiNova for easy readability in low light.
The watch is topped with a boxy sapphire crystal treated with double anti-reflective coating on both faces. However, the highlight of the skeletonized timepiece is the in-house movement, the distinctive view of whose components can be peeked at through the dial. The epitome of functionality and craftsmanship, the movement offers an 80-hour power reserve and comes equipped with an anti-magnetic Nivachron hairspring.
This Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Skeleton is water-resistant up to 300 meters and it comes paired with a bracelet made from plasma high-tech ceramic and titanium. Rado’s new edition of the Captain Cook is priced at £4,150 (roughly, $5,000).
