With the Admiral’s Cup GMT 44, CORUM presents a chic, urban variation of its legendary collection. Skillfully marrying sporting spirit and aesthetic elegance, this model signals the start of a new line that will be complemented by subsequent variations and is distinguished by softer angles, a thinner case and redesigned lines of force. To keep step with its times, the Admiral’s Cup GMT 44 displays a second time zone, an extremely useful complication much in favor among globetrotters and active individuals constantly juggling with time zones.
Designed for daily wear, the Admiral’s Cup GMT 44 features a 44mm-diameter satin-brushed and polished case. It is available in red gold, red gold/steel and steel versions framing a pure, understated dial with a date window at 3 o’clock. The second time-zone markings appear around the rim, pointed to by a clearly identifiable red arrow. The white or black dial is rimmed with a flange bearing the 12 miniaturized nautical pennants serving as a reminder of the collection’s genetic heritage.
To secure the case, CORUM has fitted it with a solid screw-down back engraved with the Admiral’s Cup trophy, or a version with a sapphire crystal window enabling one to admire the gear trains in action. Whether a genuine crocodile leather strap or a bracelet in the same metal as the case, the wristband is specially designed to ensure optimal comfort. The water resistance of the steel and steel/red gold versions is guaranteed to 100 meters, and that of the red gold variation to 50 meters.
The mechanical self-winding CO383 movement powers hour, minute, seconds and date functions, in addition to the dual time-zone display. Equipped with an oscillating weight engraved with the CORUM brand name, it boasts a 42-hour power reserve and features rhodium-plated finishes. Altogether and including all its versions, less than 1,000 Admiral’s Cup GMT 44 watches will be produced in 2009.
