Summary of the history of this partnership
Confirming its attachment to the world of sailing, CORUM continues its history and reinforces its presence in the arena of nautical sponsoring. Marking a nautical double, the CORUM watchmaking brand, joined forces with the prestigious and winning OKALYS-CORUM team and lent its name to the Geneva Grand Prix; a history which above all tells of the meeting of passionate people.
Building a long-term partnership, the watchmaking brand has signed a contract for three years and plans to make great strides in the discipline.
To commemorate this new challenge, CORUM has created a custom trophy for the event. Antonio Calce, CORUM CEO presented it to Ernesto Bertarelli’s team, which was the first winner of the CORUM Grand Prix trophy. The names of all winners will be engraved on it, in the order of their victories.
As the Grand Prix’s official partner, CORUM is running up its watchmaking colors and lending its precision to seafaring timepieces and chronographs. CORUM rewarded the winning team with a titanium Admiral’s Cup Black Hull 48 watch, the brand’s iconic model famous for its dodecagonal bezel and a dial decorated with nautical pennants. This model will symbolize the two partnerships by becoming the official watch of the CORUM Grand Prix and the OKALYS-CORUM team.
