For sale I have a very rare and ultra cool 1960’s Baylor “Captain Cook” - Ref. 10506. This piece is presumably manufactured by Rado for Baylor Watch Co. The case, dial design and bezel are all consistent or identical with the famous Captain Cook of the same period. Bezel is concave or “stadium” style, and is exactly like the unique Rado Captain Cook! Case measures about 36mm and bezel is 37mm. Lugs are 19mm.
The watch is in more than excellent condition as represented by photos, and the automatic A.S. (A.Schild) movement (same brand as the Cook) has been fully serviced by my watchmaker and is running perfectly and keeping great time.
It comes fitted on a vintage BoR, consistent with the same type of bracelet on the Captain Cook. Dial is same metallic gray, and indexes are also consistent with the Cook’s layout. The lume in all original, with exception of minute hand that has been professionally restored to match, including low glow lume. Based on condition of this watch, I have to believe it has lived most of its life stored away someplace safe!
Asking price is a very reasonable $1500 (or nearest offer) plus shipping.
