Corum presents the Admiral AC-One 45 Chronograph Bronze, a special collection that pays tribute to the brand’s maritime connection.
Unlike other timepieces made with raw bronze, that will age or even deteriorate with time, Corum has pushed the envelope to the limit by developing a fully pre-patinated bronze case.
Exclusive to the brand, this treatment gives the piece a more pronounced maritime look, and above all results in a more finely-crafted aspect than raw bronze designs. Each Admiral AC-One 45 Chronograph Bronze is unique in its own way, too: no two patinas give the alloy exactly the same colouration.
Resplendent in the hues revealed in this way, Corum’s Admiral AC-One 45 Chronograph Bronze has been finished in different shades of brown, ranging from chestnut to chocolate. The dial of the piece has been specially designed in matching teak, featuring a vertical cut resembling that of a historic tall ship’s authentic teak deck – a nod to the seafaring pedigree of the Admirals.
Twelve pennants, the traditional hour markers for this collection, are arranged around the dial. Broad, skeletonised hands glide over them, powered by an automatic chronograph caliber boasting a 42-hour power reserve. The watch sits on a leather strap, carefully chosen to match the shades of the 45-millimetre patinated bronze case.
