At Baselworld last week Corum unveiled the Admiral’s Cup Legend 42. The twelve-sided bezel and nautical pennants have defined Admiral’s Cup family for decades. For 2011, the collection expands with the addition of a classically elegant example. At 42mm, this new model is smaller than the collection’s sporting versions, and the new design is more understated. Find pricing and wallpaper inside.
The case has been redesigned with more strongly curved and rounded lugs, resulting in softer angles, while the sapphire caseback allows a view of the caliber CO395 movement inside. Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, it has a 42-hour power reserve and features an oscillating weight engraved with the Corum name.
The dial features a vertical guilloché motif for the steel and two-tone steel & gold versions, or barleycorn guilloché for the 18K red gold models. The Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 comes with a leather strap for the steel and steel & gold versions, or an alligator strap for the gold versions – both secured by a folding clasp. The steel and steel & gold models are also available with a new matching steel bracelet exclusively developed for this Admiral’s Cup Legend 42.
Prices for the Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 start at $3,600. The images below may be enlarged with a click.
