Presented by Corum Watches – The Admiral is one of the pillars of Corum’s heritage. Unveiled in 1960, five short years after the brand’s creation, it embodies the Swiss watchmaker’s idea of maritime-inspired watchmaking. Although it has always been loyal to its artistic fibre, it has never been afraid to set sail for distant shores.
The new urban warrior unleashed
First introduced into the brand stable as the Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Chronograph in 2013, the masculine-looking watch has always been a combination of power, elegance and performance with a huge dose of inspiration from the sailing world. The new Admiral AC-One 45 Chronograph retains the essence of its sporty predecessor except for a few minor tweaks. The “60” hour marker at 12 o’clock has been replaced by the Corum key and brand logo, which have been slightly enlarged to give better brand visibility. Another benefit from this minor design modification is the introduction of more breathing space on the dial—and with this small change, the Admiral AC-One 45 Chronograph looks sleeker and more contemporary.
Corum also worked on the case shape of the watch which now features a more angular dodecagonal bezel to create a more sophisticated aesthetic.
For the chronograph display, Corum replaced the dial with a “Grenadier fendu” motif, which means that the dial is unique to the brand. Instead of monochromatic dials, the Admiral AC-One 45 Chronograph comes with black or white dials with contrasting sub-dials.
Powering the chronograph is the highly reliable Calibre CO 132, a self-winding movement that beats at 4 Hertz and boasts 42 hours of power reserve, 100m water resistance and decorative finishes specific to Corum.
The Admiral AC-One 45 Chronograph is available in 2 dial colors of black or white. The black dial version comes available in either 5N 18kt rose gold or titanium grade 5 with black PVD treatment; while the white dial is available in titanium grade 5 or 5N 18kt rose gold.
