Corum takes the legendary Admiral watch collection to new heights both technically, as well as design and performance wise.
It was more than 60 years ago that Swiss watch brand Corum first announced its Admiral collection. Inspired by the
great sailing races from whose name the collection derives, the Admiral watch has undergone a host of evolutions
and iterations since then. Known for its dodecagonal shaped bezel and colorful nautical pennants on the dial, the
Corum Admiral is a modern-day icon, a legendary watch that continues to steal hearts around the world. Today, to
celebrate its mastery of the maritime watch, Corum releases a host of new Admiral watches that embrace a lifestyle
attitude perfect for today’s navigators and sailors, as well as for those who simply love the seas.
Corum Admiral 45 Automatic Openworked Flying Tourbillon Carbon & Gold
The stand-out star of the newest Corum Admirals is the Corum Admiral 45 Automatic Openworked Flying Tourbillon Carbon & Gold watch. This revolutionary timepiece, created in a limited edition of just 48, represents an all-new case material for the luxury watchmaking brand. The dynamic 45mm watch is crafted in fluctuating layers of ultra-light carbon mixed with 18-karat gold glitter – rendering each and every case unique. For Corum, whose watchmaking standards are incredibly stringent, it isn’t enough to offer a unique case and high-tech material. The brand also super charges the watch with an openworked movement with flying tourbillon escapement.
The automatic flying tourbillon movement, CO 298, was developed in house by the high-end brand. It beats at 3Hz to offer incredible precision, and the tourbillon escapement compensates for errors in timekeeping due to the effects of gravity on the watch when it is in a horizontal position. Equipping the piece with a flying tourbillon is also a nod to the sailing world, where safe navigation of the seas requires ultimate precision. The openworked movement is visible
on both the dial side and case back side to showcase the meticulously finished components, the magnificent
bridges and the mesmerizing constantly rotating flying tourbillon escapement. The Openworked Flying Tourbillon
Carbon & Gold watch is finished with an equally as creative strap made of rubber and synthetic textiles with genuine
gold stitching. The result: a high-tech, high-mech combination of stealth, precision, and perfection – water resistant
to 100 meters.
Corum Admiral 42 Automatic watch
Corum also enhances this beloved collection with several new versions of the Admiral timepiece for men and
women. The new Corum Admiral 42 Automatic watches offer updated design details and upgraded finishing on
cases. The Full Grey Monochrome version, crafted in sandblasted stainless steel with a gradient grey dial and
nautical pennants in grey, offers an almost ethereal appeal. The unique monochromatic hues seem to recall fog
rolling in from the oceans. The sandblasted steel features an anti-fingerprint coating for the bezel, case and bracelet.
Just 100 pieces of this striking watch will be produced.
Turning to the sophisticated look of two-tone, Corum adds a steel and 18-karat gold version of the Admiral 42
Automatic. Thanks to a cloud white dial and colorful nautical pennants, it offers a more classic yet contemporary feel.
This limited edition of 50 pieces is sold with a matching steel-and-gold bracelet or with a dark blue strap. The most
casual version is probably the Admiral 42 Automatic watch (that is not a limited edition), which is crafted in polished
and fine brushed stainless steel with an ocean blue dial and colorful pennants. Sold with either a steel bracelet or
blue rubber strap, it is the quintessential Admiral piece.
All of the new Admiral 42 watches house the CO 395 automatic movement with hour, minute, date at 3:00 and small
subsidiary seconds at 6:00. They all are equipped with 42 hours of power reserve, feature anti-reflective sapphire
crystals and all have been upgraded from 50 to 100 meters of water resistance – a must-have for maritime inspired
Additionally, improvements have been implemented on the Admiral 42 Automatic Chronographs range.
Corum Admiral 38 Automatic watch
Because the Admiral collection is also in high demand by women who love both form and function in a watch, Corum
unveils new fashion-forward, sporty chic Admiral 38 Automatic watches. The nicely sized 38mm watch is lighter in
weight thanks to a titanium case and bracelet which gives unparalleled comfort on the wrist. Additionally, the
automatic movement with oscillating weight is visible via the sapphire case back. The new versions joining the line-
up include a pale pink dial model with Corum’s unique Grenadier Fendu finishing. It is crafted in a titanium case with 72 diamonds set on the titanium bezel and is offered with an ultra-light titanium bracelet or with a matching pink rubber strap.
Complementing the titanium Admiral 38 Automatic is a two-tone titanium watch with 18-karat gold diamond-set bezel and white dial with Grenadier Fendu motif. It is offered with either a matching two-tone bracelet or a white vulcanized rubber strap – perfect for a day at the yacht club or out on the water.
