The new red gold or steel Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 interpreted in two-tone versions is adorned with the same metallic blue color that graced its first modern version in 1983. This tribute to the historical model will be issued in a strictly limited 400-piece limited edition.
When the Admiral’s Cup was first released in 1960, it immediately established itself as one of the first perfectly water-resistant shaped sports watches. 23 years later, when its design was reinterpreted through adopting its current identity codes – 12 nautical pennants from the maritime international code of signals serving as hour-markers, along with a twelve-sided case – it became a truly phenomenal success. In homage to this model that has come to symbolize the House, Corum now presents a limited series reflecting the vintage “gunmetal blue”: the Admiral’s Cup Legend 42.
The Admiral’s Cup collection is composed of several distinct worlds: the sturdy and sophisticated Seafender line designed for adventurers: the sporty yet distinguished Challenger line suitable for wear on all occasions; and finally, the Legend line introduced in 2011 and which flirts with the frontiers of classic elegance in a subtly refined and gentle manner. While the new variations feature a more modest size, more curving lugs and softer angles, they maintain the same unique identity codes of the Admiral’s Cup. All of which ensures that these new classics imbued with a casual spirit proclaim their sporting origins in a subtle yet effective manner.
