Rado and The England and Wales Cricket Board

Since April 2023, the Swiss watch brand has been the official timing partner for the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). Both pioneers in their respective fields, the brands share a strong desire to grow the sport. Hence, the great success of this partnership. This summer, Rado is entering their second season as the official timing partner for the ECB. And to celebrate, the Swiss watch brand has created the Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic x England Cricket watch. Sharing the ECB’s goal of ‘Inspiring Generations’, the timepiece is a testimony to one of the world’s greatest games.

Rado Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic x England Cricket Limited Edition

The Case and Dial

Rado is known for their use of premium-quality materials, and this model makes no exceptions. The striking design of this timepiece starts with its 43mm monobloc matt navy blue case. Crafted from Rado’s signature material, high-tech ceramic, it ensures the watch is both scratch-resistant and skin-friendly. With its white high-tech ceramic insert, the polished navy blue high-tech ceramic rotating bezel offers a bold contrast. Silver metallisation markers and the triangle at 12 o’clock helps to emphasise this further. The watch’s screw-down crown, at 3 o’clock, is made of matt navy blue high-tech ceramic. While it adds to the overall design, it also helps to lock in the model’s impressive 300 metres of water resistance. Overleaf, the navy blue coloured PVD-coated titanium case back features a sapphire crystal. The case back also includes the words “LIMITED EDITION, No XXX/150”, a confirmation of the series size, and the specially metallised words “OFFICIAL TIMING PARTER” along with the ECB logo.

On display through the box-shaped sapphire crystal is a clear and spartan dial. With its navy blue minute track, it offers the wearer a glimpse of the movement that powers the watch. The dial also exhibits brushed rhodium-coloured applied hands and indices. Ensuring optimal readability, they both feature a white Super-LumiNova treatment. The Rado and Captain Cook logos, as well as the Rado anchor symbol, complete the striking design of the dial. A tinted sapphire crystal, with anti-reflective coating on both sides, not only offers exceptional clarity but also durability. You can wear this remarkable timepiece daily and not have to worry about knocking it!

The Movement and Finishing Touches

Through the sapphire crystal case back, the wearer can observe and enjoy the innovative R808 movement which powers the timepiece. The movement itself comes with an anti-magnetic and highly reliable Nivachron hairspring that has been fully tested in five positions. As well as this, it provides up to 80 hours of power reserve. The automatic movement also contributes to the watch’s aesthetic allure. The dial side has nickel colour horizontal brush decoration, and this striking nickel colouring continues throughout other elements of the movement.

A matt navy blue rubber strap with a matte navy blue high-tech ceramic cover and brushed pushers complete the design of this limited edition model. Not only does the rubber strap showcase the Captain Cook’s sporty side, but it also provides great comfort on the wrist; thanks to its extendable stainless steel folding clasp. Confirming that this is a very special timepiece, it comes in noteworthy packaging. A limited edition certificate verifies its exclusivity.
