Bronze – One of a Kind

This year, Rado delivers a powerful wrist statement with a twist that tastefully reflects popular contemporary materials and trends. Presenting a modern touch through its Bronze case, the Rado Captain Cook Bronze meets every expectation – both on a functional and aesthetic level.

Bronze, the first metal alloy used extensively in human civilisation, develops a patina over its lifetime. Patina, what occurs when copper in bronze oxidises from exposure to air, develops a unique colour depending on each wearer’s habits and atmospheric climate. The case is meticulously finished in a fine plating of 23 carat gold to avoid the process of patination occurring before it reaches the wearer’s wrist.


This model features a bronze case for a perfect combination of ancient and modern materials.


Eventually disappearing, the end result is a satisfying gradual change, where the wearer may observe the bronze slowly darken to a milky-gold hue. This process adds an unexpected dimension of depth, and when paired with its high-tech ceramic bezel, Rado presents a watch that is truly one of a kind.

The Swiss brand’s heritage of innovation continues with the introduction of a bronze case that adds vintage details in its offer of ceramic bezels in lush green, deep blue or earthly brown. Sapphire crystal encases the front of the watch, allowing for an extremely legible dial that showcases its famous Rado red rotating anchor. The Rado anchor symbolises that encased within its bronze case, the Rado Captain Cook Bronze is powered by a three hand C07 automatic movement, that offers an impressive power reserve of 80 hours. Continuing with its vintage theme, the Rado Captain Cook Bronze is enhanced with yellow Super-LumiNova indexes, allowing for clear visibility in the dark. Water resistant to 300 metres, Rado has presented a striking divers watch that encapsulates its brand and history.


Captain Cook is a watch designed to stand the test of time.


Beautifully paired with a high-quality leather strap, the strap adds to the nautical charm of the watch. It boasts the Rado Easy Clip System, this allows wearers to easily and rapidly change straps. The Rado Captain Cook Bronze is a watch of contrasts, successfully presenting a innovative modern iteration of the legendary 1960s original.
