When you think about watches of quality, you can’t help but think about the Rado HyperChrome Captain Cook Limited Edition. The first thing you notice about this watch upon inspection is that it almost has a presence about it. It’s actually quite beautiful, but it also looks very sleek and functional, which it is. The minute you look at it, you know that you’re looking at something special. This is truly a unique watch and there is nothing that has been overlooked. Even the smallest of details have been paid special attention, so much so that it makes you wonder just exactly how many years the watchmaker spent thinking about creating this watch and then making it a reality.
Since the first thing that you will obviously notice about it is its appearance, it’s imperative to discuss that first and foremost. The thing that makes this watch stand out so much is the brushed silver color on the face of the dial. It really gives the watch itself a distinction that you just don’t commonly see.
The edge of the bevel is finished in brilliant stainless steel with black tick marks to denote each second and the edge of a case is a contrasting dark color that features the same thing in 15-second intervals. The watch has three hands, all of which are luminescent, as are the numbers on the dial. In addition to the stainless steel case and clasp, the wristband is made of hand-stitched leather.
As you can see, this is a watch that is far beyond some mass-produced generic item that you could pick up off the shelf of the local big box store.It even features the date so you never have to have one of those moments where you suddenly can’t remember what the date is and you’re scrambling to look at something so you can find out.
