It’s a company founded in the heart of watchmaking history, and a line that marked a monumental moment in horological design.
The Admiral’s Cup line from Corum was first introduced in 1960, and was one of the first ever water-resistant square watches created. Today, the line has grown to include more than a dozen different designs housing countless movements, including their latest masterpiece: the AC-One 45 featuring the new hand-wound Caliber CO 1008 movement, which utilizes a double tourbillon.
An impressive 72-hour power reserve ensures the reliability of this time piece, while the retrograde date and time adjustment devices are masterfully innovative. “Simply by pressing the crown pushbutton, the wearer can bring the minutes hand instantly to the 12th index so as to set the exact time – and this can be done up to five minutes before or after a full hour,” describes a press release from Corum.
Keeping with the line’s tradition of impressive water-resistance, the AC-One 45 Double Tourmillon remains resistant to a depth of 300 meters, with a case available in either 18k red gold or grade 5 titanium.
