Rado Captain Cook Introduction

The new edition watch introduced in the year 2017 has a lot of features; for instance, the high technology black ceramic inserts as well as the sapphire crystal for maximum protection of the dial.
A very common and usual feature of Rado watches is the use of ceramic in their making. The use of ceramics is a must to give a look of perfection. In the year 1990, Rado introduced the Rado ceramic in which both the bracelet of the watch as well as the case was completely made up of ceramic. Apart from this, the high technology injection feature and process paved the way for the creation of valuable timepieces.
However, ceramic is just one of the materials that Rado is proud of using in the making of their watches. The ceramic looks like metal but the best thing about it is that it has the weight of ceramic while it is durable like steel. So, you might witness many of the Rado watches in a lot of colors like gold, rose gold and platinum, but in reality, since they are a type of ceramic, they rarely have any weight. This means these watches are extremely light on your wrist and are durable.

Earlier we read about the use of ceramic materials in Rado watches. Now we will let you know a bit more of the amazing materials used in these. Talking about the high-tech diamond, Rado has been using diamonds in their watches for a while now.

Apart from diamond, sapphire crystal is also used in almost all Rado watches. The use of sapphire crystal is responsible for creating a seamless transition from the sapphire crystal to the case as well as to the bracelet of the watch.
Coming over to the metal used, in the year 1962, Rado introduced the Rado Diastar 1, which was the most popular watch of that time. The great secret and success behind this watch was the use of hardcore metal in its making. Metal is still used in the making of Rado watches today as it does not wear and tear with time.
