The Rado HyperChrome Captain Cook is a modern reissue of one of the Swiss company’s popular dive watches from 1962. They offer the new watch in both 37 millimeter and 45 millimeter sizes – the former is the original size and the latter is a for those with larger wrists, or those who prefer a larger timepiece.
With its simple, clear face and subtle retro cues the HyperChrome Captain Cook has already received accolades from the watch collecting world. It’s fitted with the automatic C07.611 Swiss movement with an 80 hour power reserved and the men’s version comes with your choice of three strap designs.
