Not sure if you have seen all these new Captain Cook models guys.

First, you have the 42mm Captain Cook 200m with blue, green, black, and
also gray dials, plus beads of rice bracelets, leather, and fabric straps, as
well as automatic movement with 80 hour power reserve.

Next is the new 42mm Captain Cook Bronze with 300m WR, brown, green,
and blue dials, hand stitched leather straps, and automatic movement with
the same 80 hour of power reserve.

Then the new Captain Cook 37mm with 100m WR, automatic movement,
and beads of rice bracelet everyone.

Funny how they are either a bit too big or a bit too small.
I guess 42mm works for most people on a vintage looking diver, but after getting used to a 5 digit sub there’s no going over 40mm for me, unless it’s a quirky design (ie- Tuna)

Agreed, the thing I also love about bronze is that it’s quite versatile with different possible finishes.

Russell, and Luke, that blue/bronze does grab your attention ! 8-) Plus these
are just renderings, so you can imagine how nice the actual watch will be.
With not only the cool contrasts, but what that finish will look like, and
become over time like you are saying.

Andrea, you make such an excellent point about the sizes of these. :thumbsup:
Was wondering though, maybe that 37mm is more like 39mm with the
crown added in. So it's right around 40mm at the end of the day maybe.

Thanks so much everyone !!!

The first ones were way too small and way too big. They should have been somewhere around 39 and 42 from the start.
