CORUM AC-One 38 Automatic

CORUM presents AC-One 38 Automatic, a new timepiece specially designed for the stylish, upbeat and outdoor-loving woman.

In 2011, Corum’s iconic and unquestionably masculine Admiral collection was readapted into a daintier, 38-mm diameter version just for the ladies- it has since captured the hearts of many female fans and remains as one of the most sought-after marine-inspired ladies’ timepieces on the market.

Launched in 2013, the AC-One line embraces the design identity of the iconic Admiral collection, yet at the same time writes a new chapter by infusing it contemporary updates such as a giving it a more rounded shape, plus combining both polished and satin-brushed finishes on the case. This year, Corum has again turned its focus towards the ladies, by unveiling the AC-One 38 Automatic.

Counting on the popularity of the earlier AC-One models, the AC-One 38 Automatic aims to complement the 45mm-diameter models with feminized version. Having a much smaller case diameter of 38mm means that the original proportions of the dodecagonal-cased AC-One 45 had to be scaled down carefully. While adhering strictly to the design codes of the AC-One, the case of the AC-One 38 was given a slight makeover in order to make it more curvaceous than its masculine counterpart.

Together with the creation of a shapelier and svelte silhouette for the AC-One 38, Corum had to redesign its signature Corum-decorated micro-rotor for the CO 082 automatic movement used to power this new ladies’ timepiece, in order to fit the size of its case. This watch has a power reserve of 42 hours and is water resistant up to 50 meters. New straps and a triple-folding clasp were also created for the timepiece to make it more comfortable on the wrist.

The AC-One 38 Automatic is presented either with a Titanium grade 2 or 5N 18k rose case. Bezel is set with 72 round VS-grade diamonds. Its dauphine-style hands are partially skeletonized and filled with white superluminova. The white dial, decorated with three-dimensional “Grenadier fendu” finishing, is paired with white rubber straps for a crisp and chic look.
