Predicting reissues may not be our forte

While Rado is particularly well-known for their use of high-tech ceramic and hard metals, they’ve got a long history in water resistant and dive watches, launching their sporty ‘Green Horse’ series of watches (with a particularly cute seahorses logo on the dial) in 1958. In 1962 they released a simple little dive watch called the ‘Captain Cook’.

Cool watch. Not $2600+ cool though. Not even close

I like it a lot.

$2600 is way too much for me. It seems more like a $1500 watch. But $2600 is probably not out of line compared to the current silly prices for a Seamaster or Submariner. All of these should 1/2 of the current prices IMO.
