Corum has added a new world-time watch to its nautically inspired Admiral’s Cup collection at this year’s Baselworld watch fair, which kicked off today. The Corum Admiral’s Cup Legend 47 Worldtimer makes its debut in two formats, one with a titanium case and matte black dial, the other with a two-tone titanium and rose gold case with a smoky sapphire dial.
Both new watches have 47-mm-diameter cases and are equipped with the automatic caliber CO637, a 31-jewel, 28,800-vph-frequency movement with a 48-hour power reserve. Its bridges are designed to echo the 12-sided shape typical of Corum’s Admiral’s Cup watches. In addition to powering the hours, minutes, and sweep-seconds hands, it includes a crown/push-button at 2 o’clock to set the watch’s world-time function: turn the crown to select the time zone (either the GMT time or the world city) and press the push-button to make the hour hand jump to the selected zone.
One new reference (A637/02744-637.101.04/F371 AN02) has an all-titanium case and a matte black dial made of lacquered brass; the openworked Dauphine hands are also made of brass, rhodium-plated, and coated with Super-LumiNova. The other (Ref. A637/02743-637.101.05/F371 AN01) adds an 18k rose gold bezel to the titanium case, rose-gold-toned (rather than rhodiumed) hands, and a dial made of smoky sapphire that offers a glimpse of the movement inside.
Both versions of the Admiral’s Cup Legend 47 Worldtimer use that smoky sapphire crystal for the exhibition caseback, which also displays the city indication for each time zone. The cases are water-resistant to 100 meters and are attached to sporty straps made of vulcanized black rubber with triple blade folding clasps. Prices for both new models will be announced this week at Baselworld.
