The horological company Corum has long associated itself with the world of sailing. The latter witnessed the Admiral’s Cup watch to show a significant evolution in terms of design: the elegant Carre case-shape of the 1960's gradually transformed into a remarkable rounded 12-sided case of today.
For the first time, the Admiral’s Cup Tides watch or “Marees” was issued in 1993. It was created in partnership with the Geneva Astronomical Observatory and the Hydrographic and Oceanographic Service of the French Navy.
Alongside with the basic functions of hours, minutes and seconds, the new Corum Admiral’s Cup Tides 48 watch provides those of tide times, moon-phase, date, strength of currents as well as strength and size of tides. Animating them is the Corum C0277 tide movement, which offers a power reserve of 42 hours.
The aforementioned functions are found upon a clearly laid out dial. It is skillfully completed with pennant hour-markers, done in monochrome. They cohabit harmoniously with the dark-toned background of the display. Traveling over them are transparent hour and minutes hands, supported by a light-toned slim seconds hand.
Set within the dial are also a moon-phase and tidal range indicator, a counter in charge of tide times as well as a strength of current and tide position sub-dial. They are located at 12, 6 and 9 o’clock respectively. The date indication is offered in the aperture at 3 o’clock. The model’s name is featured right above this exhibition window.
The dial of the new Corum watch is embraced by a 48 mm case, rendered in titanium or 18ct red gold. The final touch is provided by a sculpted Corum black rubber strap.
