Corum adds two new models to their Admiral 42 Automatic line in bronze cases – in a blue dial and a green dial.
Press Release with commentary in italics
Unveiled in 1960, only five years after the brand’s creation, the Admiral collection embodies Corum’s maritime watchmaking heritage. Although it has always been loyal to its DNA, Corum has never been afraid to set sail for distant shores.
We have covered the Admiral in various models on several occasions before:
Corum Admiral Legend 47 Worldtimer
Corum Admiral AC45 Chronograph in Bronze with wood dial
Corum Admiral 42 Automatic Bronze
That’s the case today with the Admiral 42 Bronze, a timepiece that showcases both a nautical design and watchmaking mechanics. Trendy chic and sporty, the collection features two new models housed in Bronze cases in order to pay tribute to the beauty and strength of the brass material used in old ships.
A living material The special alloy of bronze used for the case and bezel will evolve over time to obtain a vintage patina. In order to be as homogeneous as possible over time, a unique satinbrushed finishing has been done on the entire case including the iconic dodecagonal bezel. Faithful to the nautical roots of the Admiral collection, the model features the 12 pennant-shaped hour markers on the dial. The nautical colour palette of navy blue or maritime green dial fit perfectly with the associated colours alligator straps.
Equipped with a Corum CO 385 automatic movement visible through the sapphire case back, the watch features a small second at 6 o’clock and a date at 3 o’clock. Water resistant to 50 meters, the Admiral 42 Bronze is the perfect watch for all sailing afficionados. The CO395 is based on the ETA 2895.
