Corum - Admiral Collection
In 2020 Corum celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Admiral collection by creating modern and elegant styles that are suitable for a variety of wrist sizes. With everyone leading busier and more active lifestyles, timepieces have also gravitated towards designs with sportier overtones to complement their needs.
This Admiral 38 embraces the design identity of the iconic Admiral, yet at the same time writes a new chapter by infusing it with contemporary updates such as a more rounded case and an automatic movement.
This version of the Admiral 38 Automatic is presented with a 5N 18k rose gold case. Its dauphine-style hands are partially skeletonized and filled with black superluminova. The dial is decorated with three-dimensional “Grenadier fendu” finishing and is paired with a black rubber strap for a crisp and modern look. Corum redesigned its signature Corum-decorated micro-rotor for the CO 082 automatic movement used to power this new timepiece. The icing on the cake? 72 round VS-grade diamonds set around the bezel.
Sporty, practical, and elegant at the same time, the Admiral 38 is incredibly versatile and will be the perfect companion for any stylish, upbeat, and outdoor-loving watch enthusiast, be it at work, an evening out, or while enjoying a luxurious weekend getaway at sea. For aficionados who prefer something more complicated and gravity-defying, Corum has prepared the AC-ONE Openwork Tourbillon. The caliber CO 297 movement was developed by Corum in-house specifically for this model. The bridges visible on the dial side were specially designed to be in harmony with the dodecagonal-shaped case, as well as the silhouettes of the nautical pennants. A sub-dial displaying small seconds is at the 9 o’clock position, while the power reserve indicator sits at 3 o’clock.
This showcases not only the beautiful heartbeat of the movement but also Corum’s artistry and flair in technical watchmaking. The addition of a tourbillon also ensures higher accuracy in timekeeping under conditions at sea. The Openwork Tourbillon also features a redesigned strap, crafted with rubber on the surface and synthetic textile on its underside, these bi-material straps are designed to seamlessly integrate with the lugs. This minimizes any possible gaps between the lugs, strap, and wrist, which not only makes wearing the watch more comfortable but also protects the lugs and straps from being damaged by external forces.
