  • Has Longines noticed Rado's Captain Cook Mk I re-issue?

    It appears they have taken a page from the Rado play-book...a 1959 Skin Diver reissue:

    It's very nice, I like it.

      I hope the product photo is what they have produced because the prototypes shown earlier had a horrible faux-vintage mismatch of dial colours to the bezel like the piece on the left.

        I don't think this is limited to Rado, I remember Oris bringing this one out around the same time as the CC, and of course Seiko have been making re-issue and homage divers for some years. I think it's all part of a general nostalgic trend. The more complex and hi-tech things become, the more we hanker for the style and simplicity of the past.
