Admiral’s Cup Black Hull 48
The Admiral’s Cup Black Hull 48 houses Caliber CO-753, an automatic-winding mechanical chronograph movement chronometer-certified by the COSC, the ultimate sign of reliability and accuracy. This CO-753 caliber operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and has a 42-hour power reserve.
The 12-sided case is made of titanium, chosen for its lightness and hardness, and covered with black PVD. Its imposing 48-mm diameter speaks of its power. It has locking pushbuttons thanks to an exclusive lockout system. These buttons frame a crown made of the same material and engraved with the CORUM key. A black rubber bezel surrounding the convex glareproofed sapphire crystal protects the upper part of the dial, while the screw-down case back, also of black titanium, is decorated with the Admiral’s Cup trophy. The minute numerals and the chevrons on the dial are covered with a black luminescent material.
The hour and minute hands are faceted and shine in the darkness thanks to an identical treatment. Assertively placed at the center of the dial, with the CORUM key as a counterweight, the chronograph second-hand is covered with deep black lacquer. The small chronograph minute and hour counters and the small second-hand at 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00 have hands that are polished to a taper. They are made more visible using relief, and are topped by the words CORUM ADMIRAL’S CUP at 12:00.
The date is displayed in a window at 4:30. On the flange, another symbol characteristic of the collection, 12 nautical pennants mark the hours. The winding rotor is engraved with the brand’s name, a reminder that CORUM cares as much about the technical quality of its timepieces as about their esthetics. The black vulcanized rubber strap has a pin buckle made of titanium treated with black PVD and engraved with the brand name. The Admiral’s Cup Black Hull 48 is guaranteed watertight to 300 meters.
The legendary Admiral’s Cup lives on in this sports chronograph, built for extremes, which embodies the brand’s athletic side. A monochrome esthetic for the brand’s iconic model.
