Foundation of the Corum’s spirit, the Admiral’s Cup line is expressed since 1960 through a sporty and masculine elegance. The iconic curves gave way to more sophisticated contours but never tire to embody this fascination for the sea. 2015 marks the unexpected and colorful return of pennants as proposed in the iconic ’80s versions – inviting us to proudly hoist Corum colors up!
What makes the Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Chrono so exceptional? A historical heritage, a pure design and, for the first time in this Legend line, a more classical aspiration expressed through a chronograph movement. This Legend chronograph reflects a number of the signature codes of the original Admiral’s Cup, united in a harmonious blend of sportiness and elegance. In 2015, the design of the legendary collection evolves in the form of an understated and elegant automatic Patek Philippe replica watches that nonetheless retained the distinctive Admiral’s Cup features.
The new model remains loyal to the collection’s legendary twelve-sided bezel, but the latter features the softest lines in the entire Legend line, reflected in the slender, streamlined chronograph pushers. The hours markers look colorful with the return of nautical pennants on the inner bezel ring, as initiated in the original models. The Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Chrono is equipped with a chronograph movement, Caliber CO984. This movement driving the hour, minute, small seconds, date and chronograph functions beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and boasts a 42-hour power reserve. The elegant 42 mm case is fitted with a screw-in transparent sapphire caseback providing an admirable view of the mechanism within.
The classic and distinctive horological nature of these timepieces is revealed by the vertical guilloché motif surrounded with a steel case. The understated dial colors, particularly the shade of blue inspired by the original Admiral’s Cup model, beautifully match the flowing lines of the case. The three chronograph counters are harmoniously arranged and readable at a glance. 11 hour-markers enable accurate reading of the hours and minutes, while the figure 60 appears in the 12 o’clock position.
The Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Chrono is available with a calfskin strap equipped with a pin buckle or on a matching metal bracelet.
