The exploration of nuanced echelons within material sciences is a perpetual practice at Rado. The master of materials embraces the bold in tech and trend for its flagship models. The latest in this scheme of stylistic evolution is the matt olive-green and rose-gold iteration of the brand’s R808 skeleton movement equipped Captain Cook.

A Sporty Aesthetic Fit For Adventure

The latest timepiece evokes the blend of an explorer spirit of the mineral world with high-tech ceramic innovation. The 43mm monobloc case is equipped with a rose gold hued rotating bezel that features an olive-green ceramic insert. The box-shaped sapphire crystal for the timepiece gets dual sided anti-reflective coated for unmatched legibility in all lighting conditions. Lumed geometric indices complete the dive watch aesthetic while assuring best readability.

Paired with a case matching olive-tone rubber strap., the watch adorns a sportier aesthetic. A high-tech ceramic clasp fulfills the band locking duties.

Art Of Skeletonisation

Timekeeping duties are performed by the R808 movement which boasts an impressive 80 hours of power reserve. The caliber whose graceful operation is visible thanks to an artistic skeletonisation gets decorative brushed finishing of high standards across its surfaces. The movement is tested to an industry standard exceeding level at 5 positions for superlative accuracy in performance. The use of a Nivachron hairspring imparts the timepiece anti-magnetic properties.

The business side of the timepiece is dominated by the intricate mechanics of the R808 caliber showcased through the sapphire case back.
