Rado’s two new Captain Cook watches and a True Square Skeleton in summer hues

The Captain Cook watches come with either sunny yellow or orange-red bezel, while the True Square Skeleton is all yellow
Popular for its material innovation like high-tech ceramic, ultralight high-tech ceramic, colourful high-tech ceramic, and Ceramos™, Rado has unveiled three new lightweight high-tech ceramic timepieces with a touch of summer colours. There are two new Captain Cook watches featuring bezel inserts made of polished high-tech ceramic in sunny yellow and orange, both limited to 262 pieces, and one True Square Skeleton in a complete yellow look. 

The new 43mm Captain Cook models have a monobloc case made of blue high-tech ceramic that is pressure-resistant to 300 metres and is polished in this limited series. With a horizontally brushed, nickel-coloured movement decoration on the dial side, they set expressive design accents that are optimally visible through the anti-reflective, characteristic box-shaped sapphire crystal. The bezels have engraved, lacquered markings and a striking triangle with white Super-LumiNova at 12 o'clock. The hour and minute hands, the tip of the second hand and the polished and rhodium-plated indices are also coated with Super-LumiNova. The titanium caseback is fitted with a sapphire crystal.

Both models feature the Rado R808 automatic movement with 80 hours of power reserve and an anti-magnetic Nivachron balance spring. It has been tested in five positions for optimal accuracy. 

The Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Skeleton Limited Editions feature a matte navy blue rubber strap.

The True Square is also powered by the R808. Here too, the dial shows the skeletonized movement architecture built on two levels and the high-quality finishes in all their glory.  To match the summery colour scheme, the True Square is equipped with a yellow rubber strap.
