The watchmaking company, Corum, expanded the Admiral’s Cup collection with the new Admiral`s Cup AC-One 45 Chronograph timepiece. The novelty took inspiration from the brand’s nautical origins and it perfectly combines power, elegance and performance.
Corum Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Chronograph is housed in a large, masculine case crafted from grade 5 titanium. The case measures 45 mm in diameter and 14.3 mm in thickness and it is more strongly rounded than ever. The case is complemented by the recognizable twelve-sided shape bezel made either of 5N 18-karat red gold or titanium.
The case construction is built on several layers, with black PVD-coated titanium inlays intermittent between the back and the middle and then between the bezel and the middle, in a thoroughly mastered play on volumes.
The new Corum is tooled with the Swiss made caliber CO 132 automatic chronograph movement with a balance frequency of 28,800 vibrations (4 Hz) and a 42-hour power reserve. The mechanism animates the usual functions of hours, minutes, seconds, with additional chronograph and date function.
The movement revealed through the open back cover in titanium grade 5 with glare proof sapphire crystal features an original open-worked and black PVD-coated oscillating weight. Furthermore, the movement is protected against the ingress of water up to 300 meters (about 990 feet).
Underneath the front sapphire glass lies a gorgeous dial accentuated with innovative and exclusive split pomegranate motifs which are composed of tiny diagonally incised squares. Its black or charcoal gray dial (depending on a model) comprises hour markers and skeletonized hands which are filled with beige luminescent coating for better visibility in low light conditions. A large chronograph sweep-seconds hand bears the iconic Corum key.
The chronograph counters are placed at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions, while a small date window is placed between 4 and 5 o’clock positions. On the dial’s flange there is an hour ring with hour markers which are made in the form of marine signal flags.
The AC-One line consists of three different models. The most elegant in this range is a model with the referent number 132.201.05/0F01 AN11 that features 18-karat red gold bezel, a charcoal gray dial and a black crocodile leather strap. Two remaining versions of Corum Admiral`s Cup AC-One 45 Chronograph are made all in titanium and they feature black dials. Here you can choose between the watch attached to a black strap (ref. 132.201.04/0F01 AN10) or the one accessorized with a titanium bracelet (ref. 132.201.04/V200 AN10).
