Rado launches a bold new re-imagining of a classic 1962 divers watch. The new Tradition Captain Cook MKIII is in a tonneau shaped case that retains the vintage look of the original 1962 Captain Cook, but adds a modern touch, with details such as an XXL case size and black textile strap.
Rado Tradition Captain Cook MKIII Automatic
Inspired by the 1962 original, the MKIII is made of light, hardened grade 5 titanium case with a luminous dial for easy readability in any situation, above and below the waves.
In reworking the bold, functional look of the original Captain Cook to suit the preferences of modern wearers, Rado has used a lug-less case design. Rado claims this makes the MKIII fit all wrist sizes.
Presented on a sporty textile strap, closer inspection of the MKIII is designed with a box-shaped sapphire crystal glass. The movement features a power reserve of up to 80 hours and the MKIII is water resistant to 22 bar (220 metres).
