Corum - Admirable Admiral

Corum Admirable Admiral

The Admiral's Cup is dead, long live the Admiral. Corum renames its flagship line under a new, shorter name. A comprehensive range of timepieces for men, women, all flying the Corum flag.

The Admiral's Cup's days are not far gone. This range was initially launched in the 1960's and updated many times since, especially during the 2010s. An assertive case, water resistant to 300 ft, long lugs, a fluted crown protected by guards, she stood out most of all thanks to her twelve-sided bezel and her dial, with indices in the shape of flags. Indeed, this model had long dropped its anchor in the realm of sailing. The aforementioned flags are the kind that allow boats to dialogue from afar, regardless of the language of those on board. Technically, they're pennants bearing the numbers 1 through 12 in the Maritime International Code of Signals.

In 2021, Corum rejuvenates the collection and launches a whole new range under the name Admiral. No Cup. The original design cues are all there: flags, bezel and an assertive style. That's over 16 references popping up all at once, giving Corum a serious boost. The 38mm versions, on the ladies side, have a center second and the 42mm ones, more on the muscle-and-moustache side, sport a small seconds display at 6 o'clock... or even a chronograph.

Besides the obligatory steel case with blue dial and the inevitable steel and gold one, some versions stand out. Like the diamond-set gold bezel with chocolate dial, or the cutie of the bunch, with a pink dial. Most of them offer the choice between bracelet or rubber strap matching the dial.

The line is topped by a sports complication, as it should be. The Admiral 45 Automatic Openworked Flying Tourbillon Carbon & Gold boasts a layered carbon case intertwined with solid gold specks. Its calibre is a three-dimensional construction. The main organs of this skeleton automatic movement are tethered to openworked, cantileverd bridges. The only one that stands on its own, devoid of any overhead coverage, is the tourbillon, which makes it a flying one with flying colours.

Happy to hear that the "Admiral" is back and that Corum has seen the interest of the combination: sailing and top timepieces!!!
