Admiral’s Cup Chronograph 48 Grand Prix Corum

Official Watch of the 2010 Corum Grand Prix

The Watch Quote™ - May 11th, 2010

The Admiral’s Cup Chronograph 48 Grand Prix Corum houses caliber CO753, an automatic-winding mechanical chronograph movement chronometer-certified by the COSC, the ultimate sign of reliability and accuracy. This CO753 caliber operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and has a 42-hour power reserve. The 12-sided case is made of titanium, chosen for its lightness and hardness. Its imposing 48-mm diameter speaks of its power. It has locking pushbuttons thanks to an exclusive lockout system. These buttons frame a crown made of the same material and engraved with the Corum key. A black rubber bezel surrounding the convex sapphire crystal anti-reflective coating protects the upper part of the dial, while the screw-down case back, also of black titanium, is decorated with the Grand Prix Corum trophy. The Côtes de Genève finish of the dial enhances the model’s distinctiveness. Contrasting with the grey dial, the minute numerals are coated with an orange luminescent material and the chevrons are covered with the same material in black. The dial is topped by the words CORUM ADMIRAL’S CUP at 12 o’clock and Limited Edition written in orange at 6 o’clock.

The hour and minute hands are faceted and shine in the darkness thanks to an identical treatment. Assertively placed at the center of the dial, with the Corum key as a counterweight, the chronograph second-hand is covered with orange lacquer, reminding the corporate colors of the Okalys-Corum team. The minute counter hand at 3 o’clock and the small second-hand at 9 o’clock are also coated with orange luminescent material. The date is displayed in a window at 3 o’clock. Representing the signature features of the collection, the 12 nautical pennants highlighting the hours are transferred on the outer dial ring. Their monochrome appearance is in harmony with the aesthetic of the watch and their arrangement creates a perfect sense of equilibrium. The winding rotor is engraved with the brand’s name, a reminder that Corum cares as much about the technical quality of its timepieces as about their esthetics. The strap is made of leather with a textile appearance and outlined with orange hand stiching and features a tongue buckle engraved with the brand name. The Admiral’s Cup Chronograph 48 Grand Prix Corum is guaranteed water resistant to 300 meters. This timepiece specially dedicated to the regatta will be available in a limited edition of 100 pieces.

The legendary Admiral’s Cup lives on in this sports chronograph, built for extremes, which embodies the brand’s athletic side.

Suggested retail price, all taxes included: 10 200 CHF / 7 350 € / 8 770 US$
