Mid-Late 1960’s RADO [Swiss] “Captain Cook” Diver Watch AS Cal. 1716-17 Bracelet


Out of stock

A wonderful example of a mid-late 1960’s 2nd generation ‘Captain Cook’ diver from RADO [Swiss], that has been professionally inspected by Localtime.

The compressor-type polished stainless steel case is in excellent condition, houses an automatic AS Cal. 1716-17 with date and measures in at 37mm or 39.50mm including the crown at 3h [both crowns are correctly logoed]. The matte black dial, set of hands and inner bezel are simply stunning. It is wearing its original and logoed steel bracelet which is also in excellent condition and will fit up to a 7″ wrist. I have included many photos, including some closeup snapshots I took just for fun, even though the polished case and super dome plexi make this a difficult one to photograph!

As with all the watches I inspect in-house here at Localtime, the BIN price includes a written 3-month written warrantee from the date of purchase. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.

EXTRA! Check out my own Localtime straps:Handmade from premium calf leather to my own specifications in Italy, they come in 5 sizes [lug width/buckle width]: 18/16, 19/16, 20/16, 21/18 and 22/18mm & 8 colours: tan, brown, dark brown, black, cinnamon brown, olive green, denim blue and grey blue. I sell these separately in my eBay store under eBay item number 401105271426 and you can also see them in the last photo here.
