CORUM Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Chrono

The Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Chrono 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 watch 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 colourful 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 colours, 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.
