Corum Nautical Tourbillon

        Rooted in 1955’s Switzerland in Chaux-de-Fonds, Corum soon became a renowned luxury watch-making brand that takes pride in being identified with a charismatic, profoundly original and forward-thinker member of today’s Haute Horology.

         In less than 60 years of existence, Corum gained a solid reputation in the fine watch-making industry, and managed to impress both peers and collectors with exquisite pieces of audacious originality and impeccable quality. Youthful and exuberant, Corum never ceases to exert fascination and enchantment upon impassionate collectors worldwide. The emblematic logo of this brand, an upright key, which evokes the precious tool that animated ancient clocks, has grown into a symbol of success, as the first motto of the brand states: The key to perfect time, for Corum each model is another challenge and a mysterious quest towards perfection.

        First launched in 1960’s Admiral’s Cup watch collection draws its inspiration in the adventurous world of the sailors, and through the years it was continually enriched with brand new models, technically and aesthetically upgraded.

        The new Admiral’s Cup Tourbillon 48 features the emblematic Corum 12-sided case design, characteristic to every Admiral model which confers the watch a robust sense of self-confidence and sportiness.

        The model features a sophisticated contemporary design which gracefully embraces the masterfully crafted tourbillon complication. The dark skeleton dial reveals the fascinating mechanism through three openings, positioned at 6 o’clock, 3 o’clock and respectively at 12 o’clock location. Furthermore, a sapphire crystal case back reveals the intricate exclusive CO-372 movement and its PVD coated, contrasting gear trains. The timepiece features 18 karat red gold bridges and mainplate and also high-end, hand-finished touches on the movement’s surfaces, which have been satin-brushed or adorned with a vertical Cotes de Genève motif before receiving PVD coating. A sublime contrast is built between the candid pink gold surfaces and the dark PVD-coated areas.

        Fateful to the theme of navigation, the model was engraved with the 12 nautical pennants (12 numerals of the International maritime Code of Signals) which serve as hour-markers. The watch’s dial is sheltered by sapphire crystal which has received anti-reflective treatment on both sides; the robust masculine case, measuring 48 mm in diameter alternates vertically satin-brushed and polished surfaces and the winding crown engraved with the brand’s logo is protected by black vulcanized rubber inserts. The mechanical movement is able to ensure 90-hours power reserve and, furthermore the timepiece is complied by an elegant black alligator leather strap.

        Due to the highly sophisticated nature of this watch Corum produced only a limited edition of only 20 timepieces, which surely won’t intimidate, with its 6 figures price tag, an impassionate collector.
