Corum - The Corum Admiral 42 Automatic Gets a Colorful Twist

Corum The Corum Admiral 42 Automatic Gets a Colorful Twist

For spring, five fresh and vivid colours brighten up this dark vessel of a watch.

Born in the 1960s, the very first Admiral’s Cup model was an unusual yachting watch with a water-resistant square case. The Admiral collection that we are now familiar with, is an evolution of the Admiral’s Cup model redesigned in 1983, with its instantly recognizable 12-sided case and nautical pennants on the dial. Over the years, this collection dedicated to the world-famous regatta has not only become an integral pillar of Corum, but also one of the most iconic nautical-inspired timepieces on the market. 

One of the most identifiable characteristics of an Admiral timepiece is the use of 12 nautical pennants as hour markers. These flags in fact conform to the International Code of Signals for indicating numbers using colored flags, so each hour is represented by its corresponding pennant. 

The latest Admiral 42 Automatic Full Black is the complete opposite of its colorful predecessors, and a first-ever within the Admiral family of watches. It features the iconic dodecagonal case in black PVD-treated stainless steel, paired with a blackened brass dial. The nautical pennants, minute markers presented in greyscale tones to balance the austerity of the all-black design, while markers for the minute and small seconds are made visible using a tone-on-tone effect. 

But for this spring season, Corum introduces colorful and flashy hour’s markers flags, in blue, red, yellow, green and orange. All variations are produced in a limited edition of 100 pieces.

The Dauphine-style hour and minute hands are also skeletonized, given black PVD treatment, then filled with colored superluminova to ensure excellent legibility. Vulcanized black rubber straps with a black PVD-treated buckle complete the edgy look. 

The Admiral 42 Automatic Full Black is powered by the automatic CO 395 movement, which provides 42 hours power reserve. It offers a water resistance of 50 meters.
