Swiss luxury watch brand CORUM enriches its legendary Admiral’s Cup collection with a new Annual Calendar model.
The new Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Annual Calendar, crafted in red gold or steel, with a silver-toned or anthracite dial, is distinguished by pure lines and a philosophy firmly focused on essentials.
The various calendar functions are displayed clearly and harmoniously on the dial. In addition to the hours, minutes and seconds, the watch indicates the date around the dial circumference by means of an openworked hand, and the months through a snailed aperture at 6 o’clock.
Representing a remarkable and eminently useful horological complication, the annual calendar automatically takes account of 30- and 31-day months, thus requiring just one adjustment per year, at the end of February. The time indications are provided by three semi-openworked hands, faceted and enriched with a white luminescent substance that makes them stand out in the dark.
The date hand with its Corum key symbol counterweight sets a final precious touch to this charming picture. The dial is also characterized by its elegant aesthetic featuring 11 applied hour-markers and the figure 60 instead of the usual 12; a vertical guilloché motif for steel models, and a barleycorn guilloché pattern for the red gold versions.
Water-resistant to 30 meters, the 42 mm-diameter case of the Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Annual Calendar houses the mechanical automatic Corum CO503 movement, endowed with a 42-hour power reserve.
On the reverse side of the watch, a sapphire caseback reveals the heart of the movement and its oscillating weight personalized with the brand logo.
The leather strap comes fitted with a folding clasp for the steel version and with a pin buckle for the gold variation. The Corum Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Annual Calendar watch is issued in a limited annual production run of 25 in red gold and 150 in steel.
