Corum Admiral's Cup Swiss Luxury Watches Review

Updated on January 9, 2015

Corum Admiral's Cup

Admiral Cup stands out as Corum's most versatile collection currently in production. It contains several lines of watches, some of which can be categorized as sports pieces, others as luxury yachting timers – but in general, the variety in design and complexity allows for all sorts of wearing, be it casual, formal, or evening party.

The trademark visual trait of any Admiral Cup watch is the unique polygonal case and bezel (12 sides). This case design imparts to the timepiece a no-nonsense rugged look that exudes professionalism and raw power – the two constants that notably gain in prevalence in open sea – the former taming the latter.

The surprising thing about this collection is that Corum don't let the seriousness of the premise to hindrance the use of luxurious materials, colors, and occasionally somewhat fanciful decorations and complications. Lets take a closer look at some of the lines.

Admiral Cup 48

The largest (the number reveals case diameter) of the collection, these watches can include tourbillon, leap seconds chronograph, and tides indicator complication; Competition line offers nearly twenty models, strap or bracelet based, usually colored in dark or neutral hues (black, grey and brown, but occasionally blue). Additional trademark feature that shines in separate watches is the miniature nautical flags used for 5 minute indexes.

Materials include stainless steel, titanium, gold, rubber, sapphire crystal, and diamonds – lots of diamonds paving the luxury fashion variations.

Admiral Cup 40, 44

44 diameter timers usually contain a chronograph function; the angular, geometry inspired push buttons that flank the crown create a right angle with the lugs, further enhancing the impression of stability and high functionality. Needless to say, all watches encase automatic movements, many certified by COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute).

Admiral Cup 40 consists of over 20 variations, some of which were designed especially for women (pastel blue and pink). These watches are smaller in size, and consequently have less space for openwork complications available in 48. This quality results in less busy dials and overall more classic, calm appearance – revealing another facet in Corum design philosophy.
