    Rado Captain Cook arrivals

    Sorry about the crappy iPhone pics but thought I would share my new Rado Captain Cook Mk.1 and Mk.2 arrivals. Pretty rare especially the Mk.1!

    Gee, yours looks close to NOS!! As per my name I am more into Japanese stuff but I really like these Captain Cooks! Wasn't there only 8000 made of the Mk.1? Both will be up for sale before long.

    It most likely is. Or at least some parts of it - still looks to me like the hands are not original (despite the fact that everything has aged evenly and that I've seen one or two other watches with those hands) which lets me question the originality of the whole thing. And your dial seems to be in better condition. Anyhow, so far I have not done any research, but 8'000 pieces would imho be quite a lot. Best regards, Roger

    The watches show character, it shows they were worn with gusto.
    Would you say I have a plethora of watches?

    I am a small time (eBay) watch dealer (seikoman35) out of Australia. Got offered both of these from one of my suppliers out of Japan. Seems the Rado brand was quite popular there in the 60's and 70's!

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the Rado world but was recently offered this prime example of a Captain Cook Mk 1. As it appears it has the same hands as your watch. I am amazed by the condition of the whole watch. But then again, if it is almost too good to be true then probably it isn't. Any thoughts? Thank you very much in advance. Hans
