The sun is out (for now!), the strawberries are being served and the Pimms is ready...nothing says British summer quite like Wimbledon. So, there’s no better time to show recognition for the luxury Swiss brand that has a heritage for sponsoring some of the most renowned international tennis tournaments. Rado continues to demonstrate dedication to innovation and high quality craftsmanship with its new addition to the Diver family, the Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver. With a thrill-seeking appeal, it's the ideal timepiece for winners on and off the court.

The New Captain Cook Release

Known as one of the leading luxury watchmakers, Rado is renowned for creating high-tech timepieces with innovative materials and features. Since it was first founded in 1917, the Swiss brand has always been ahead of the curve with show-stopping watches. And the Rado Captain Cook is one of its most iconic collections. Its unique character and vintage-inspired appeal have made it a big hit since it first launched in 2017. The Captain Cook first emerged in 1962, just in time to join the ranks of that decade's must-have: a dive watch (and you can thank 007 for that). To this end, it was fitted with a concave turning bezel, since 1986 featuring a high-tech ceramic inlay. Now, the new Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver takes centre stage, precision-engineered with a monobloc case, this new addition has a bold, non-slip bezel surrounded by high-tech ceramic inserts and smaller dimensions, making it a dream to wear, just ask Cameron Norrie...
