Corum Admiral AC-One 45 Squelette “Kronometry 1999”

Luxury Swiss watch brand Corum has created three unique versions of its Admiral 45, available only at the Bristol – legendary Parisian luxury hotel and new home of Corum retailers Kronometry 1999.

The Admiral 45 Bronze features a patinated bronze case, teak pontoon dial, and iconic pennants, arranged around the twelve-sided bezel to display the hours befittingly for lovers of water sports and ocean-going races. Based on this creation, Corum and watch retailers Kronometry 1999 (Monaco, Paris, Courchevel) have devised a highly exclusive limited edition, destined for the most discerning connoisseurs: the Admiral AC-ONE 45 Squelette “Kronometry”.

To bring this piece to life, the teams from Corum and Kronometry 1999 sought to extend the original concept of the Admiral 45 Bronze, developing the nautical feel still further, taking bronze to its absolute limits, and in doing so, showing off the mechanism to even greater advantage. Work focused first and foremost on the bronze. Its original glossy finish has been aged more, making it look as if it has spent an eternity beneath the waves. The brown tones have been faded to darker greys and blacks, as if raised from more hostile depths.

The new hues of the Admiral AC-ONE 45 “Kronometry” are highlighted by three new flange options. The first model features a red/burgundy flange to go with the dominant colours of the bronze case; the second model sports a grey flange, matching case and bezel highlights. The third model offers more of a contrasting, deep-sea feel, with a black flange that sets off the darker shades of the tarnished bronze and the crown protector. Admiral 45 Bronze’s Skeleton dial reveals the automatic movement and date.

Each timepiece is powered by Corum’s CO 082 caliber, with a 42-hour power reserve. A dedicated patinated brown leather strap has been created for this edition –Montres CORUM Sarl which also bears the “Kronometry” logo, engraved on the rear sapphire crystal. Just one of each model will be made.
