Created in 1960, the Admiral’s Cup celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2010. With this eminently sporty timepiece CORUM has paid tribute to the ocean’s enthusiasts for half a century.
As some of them also choose to explore the ocean’s depths, CORUM offers for the first time, the Admiral’s Cup Deep Hull 48, a version dedicated to diving.
The case of this latest novelty in the Admiral’s Cup collection – with its twelve-sided case, typical of the collection – features an impressive diameter of 48 mm. Crafted in titanium and easily recognizable thanks to its bold design, it offers a unidirectional and rotating bezel.
Other characteristic of the Corum Admiral’s Cup Deep Hull 48 watch include a small seconds counter at 9 o’clock, an exceptional water-resistance of 100 atmospheres – or 1000 meters – and perfect legibility in the dark thanks to the Superluminova coating on the index and hands.
The model is also endowed with a decompression valve which during ascent evacuates the helium that has accumulated in the case due to the diver’s depth and long periods of time underwater. Without this ingenious system the helium’s expansion could cause the glass to explode. This valve is situated at 9.30 o’clock and indicated with an engraving of “1000M”.
This broad case houses the caliber CO947, mechanical movement with automatic winding COSC certified chronometer, offering hours, minutes, small seconds, day and date functions. For a perfect resistance to salty water, the Admiral’s Cup Deep Hull 48 is fitted with black vulcanized rubber strap titanium buckle engraved with Corum logo.
This anniversary piece, the Corum Admiral’s Cup Deep Hull 48, is available in a limited edition of 500 pieces, with a black PVD version available in a limited edition of 255 pieces.
