Rado celebrated the grand opening of its exclusive new store in Jaipur, with Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan unveiling the brand’s latest Captain Cook watch. The new Rado boutique on Tonk Road represents a luxurious destination for watch aficionados in Jaipur. The store showcases Rado’s legacy of innovation, precision, and style, providing an immersive experience with the brand’s iconic timepieces.
To mark the special occasion, Rado welcomed its brand ambassador Hrithik Roshan. The popular actor unveiled the new Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Skeleton, featuring Rado’s R808 skeleton movement. A new matte olive green and rose gold version joins the Captain Cook collection, extending Rado’s “Art of Skeletonisation.”
“It’s a pleasure to launch Rado’s festive season collection in Jaipur,” said Hrithik Roshan. “Over the years, I’ve been amazed by how beautifully Rado has adapted to the Indian market while maintaining its spirit of uncompromising excellence, which makes it my preferred brand.”
We caught up in an exclusive conversation with Hrithik Roshan! Let’s see how that unfolded!
Well, Hrithik’s association with Rado goes way beyond his official association with the brand. The only watch he’s ever worn has been a Rado. But besides, that his father used to wear a ceramic square Rado and that’s where it all began.
With the lifestyle that these actors have, time is of key essence. When asked what he would do if he had an extra hour in the day, he said, “I’d be doing something physical since I’m extremely restless. I’d rather be in the gym an hour more or learn a new dance or maybe even rest.”
We then asked him about how important is to be on time for him. To this, he said, “It is extremely important and that’s what my father sat me down and taught me. To be on time, you have to leave early. My father has always been precise, no wonder he had a Rado timepiece in his hand since precision is equally important for the brand.”
For someone who loves his watches non-fussy, we got into a rapid-fire with him to know more about his outlook on watches!
What’s the first word that comes to your mind when we say:
THM: Would you prefer a strap or a bracelet?
THM: 37MM or a 44MM dial size?
THM: Vintage watches or new watches?
Hrithik: Depends on your mood!
THM: Steel watches or ceramic watches?
Hrithik: Ceramic watches
THM: Rado to you in one word?
The new Captain Cook model brings the explorative power of the mineral world into a high-tech ceramic creation with shades of olive green and rose gold. Designed for determined explorers, it features a sporty olive rubber strap with a ceramic clasp cover.
Rado highlights the uniqueness of its high-tech ceramic, which provides lightweight durability and scratch resistance with a silkiness that makes for exquisite comfort on the wrist. This sensory experience becomes total and unforgettable, especially for timepieces using ceramic bracelets.
With the new Jaipur boutique and Captain Cook launch, Rado continues its bold exploration of materials and design for the discerning Indian watch enthusiast.
