$ 2,280 (Incl. tax for United Kingdom)
  • Product Notes

    Of all the material innovations that Rado has been a pioneer of, from tungsten carbide to ceramic, the brand has braved the frontlines with implementing new materials, emerging as the creator of the first scratchproof watch. Yet, what we're offering here is not another mind-shattering timepiece of revolutionary material, but a piece of history from their archives.

    Thus together with Rado, The Rake & Revolution present to you our version of the HyperChrome Captain Cook "Ghost Captain" Limited Edition Dive Watch, water resistant to a depth of 100m. We retained the true 37.3 mm size watch case of the original 1962 Captain Cook, dressed in a monochromatic colour palette of grey and white. Framed in a grey ceramic bezel, the matching dial is indicated with white bold hour markers coated in Super-LumiNova, and displays the signature moving anchor against the red background at 12 o'clock. It is powered by the automatic winding ETA C07.6II calibre, providing 80 hours of power reserve and a date aperture at 3 o'clock in red font. Available in a limited edition of 150 pieces, the caseback is specially engraved with the "Revolution" logo and is dressed in a grey leather strap, and comes in accompanying grey NATO-style straps in leather and textile.

The Story

The story of horology-pioneering brand Rado is one of humble beginnings; brothers Fritz, Ernst and Werner Schlup founded their original atelier in a conversion of their parent’s home in Lengnau, Switzerland, trading under the name ‘Schlup & Co’. This modest set-up later exploded into one of the world’s largest producers of watch movements by the end of the Second World War, renowned from the beginning for their innovative and beautiful timepieces. The name ‘Schlup & Co’ changed to ‘Rado’ in the 1950’s, but their strong philosophy hasn’t changed: “If we can imagine it, we can make it.”
