Ever since 2000, the Bubble series has offered distinct and captivating fashion, combining quality and innovation. This winter, Corum presents an original unique piece.
We have two models of this Corum Admiral Legend 42 Auto. Right off the bat, you’ll notice the legendary twelve-sided bezels on those stainless steel pieces that measure in at 42mm. You have your choice of a deep white or blue dial, along with the sapphire crystal over it’s double anti-reflective-treated. With an overall water resistance rating of 50m for the case, we’d have hoped for a bit more from a watch aimed at people who like to be about water.The dial is graced with a colorful variety of nautical flags which bring a wonderful flare to the table and blend well into the topic of the watch – and also at 3 o’clock, an abysmal date window hidden is in one of those flags. The Rhodium-coated dauphine hands are skeletonized and handled with Super-LumiNova while a tiny minutes is at work right above 6 o’clock. The back of the case receives a sapphire crystal to flaunt the movement here too. The Corum Admiral Legend 42 Auto watches are powered by the CO 395 that supplies a 42-hour power book. The CO 395 is truly a foundation ETA 2895, also Corum has engraved the rotor on this occasion.The Corum Admiral Legend 42 Chronographs maintain the 42mm sizing, but include a single stainless steel version whilst introducing another similar variant outfitted with an 18k red gold bezel, crownmolding, and pushers for added class. The stainless steel version offers a rich blue dial whereas the red gold is paired with an easy black background with each showcasing date, time, along with chronograph counters. The date window for these variants isn’t integrated into the dial in addition to the three-hand models so that you can not miss it nestled in between 4 and 5 o’clock. The chronographs shed the water resistance rating to 30m and keep up a sapphire crystal case back. The movement shown off is the CO 984 that beats 4Hz (28,000vph) with a power reserve of 42 hours.
Encircled by the rose gold case, the hollow eyes of a skull stare at the wearer while the flying tourbillon within the wide-open jaw brings forth a hauntingly shiver. The hollowed eyes of the skull exuberates the dark interior beneath the dome of a glare-proof sapphire. Gilded in gold, the exposed micro-rotor tourbillon is set against a charcoal backdrop, an effect enhanced by a strap made of black alligator. The somber tones of the timepiece form a dark and unforgettable elegance.
