Mar 07, 2008
Corum has always cherished utmost precision, elegance and technology. The brand has recently developed its Admiral's Cup Challenge 44 Split-Second. The watch equipped with self-winding split-second chronograph features a bold combination of materials - 18K red gold, vulcanized rubber and carbon.

The new Corum watch has joined a maritime world established on the past and looking firmly to the future. The timepiece proudly demonstrates the brand's distinctive twelve-sided case, 44 mm in diameter, crafted in red gold. Pay attention to the vulcanized rubber guard that guarantees protection to a screw-lock crown featuring an engraving of the Corum key.

The black lacquered dial of the Corum Admiral's Cup Challenge 44 Split-Second spotlights distinctive 12 nautical pennants around the flange. For perfect readability, the chevron-style hour-markers are filled with a luminescent substance. The cambered twelve-sided sapphire crystal is provided with anti-reflective coating.

The carbon bezel of the Corum watch pays tribute to the high level of technology characterizing state-of-the-art sailboats. The same material has been applied on the three lever-like pushers required for activating the functions of the chronograph. There are two traditional pushers at 2 and 4 o'clock, and the one responsible for the red lacquered split-second hand at 8:30.

The creators of the Corum Admiral's Cup Challenge 44 Split-Second opted for utilizing ultra-modern materials, vulcanized rubber and carbon, appreciated for their resistance to the elements and as a way to accentuate technical sophistication of the model.

The top-of-the-line chronograph watch displays three counters with an applied solid gold rim - minutes counter is positioned at 3 o'clock, hours at 6 o'clock and small seconds at 9 o'clock. The luminescent-coated hour and minute hands and hour-markers together with red lacquered split-second hand greatly enhance the dial's readability.

In the heart of the Admiral's Cup Challenge 44 Split-Second there beats the thoroughly tested 13 1/4''' CO-986 movement, 31-jewel chronograph caliber with a balance oscillating at 28,800 vibrations per hour.

Due to its split-second function, the COSC-certified chronometer provides smooth and easy measurement of several split times. The movement has been endowed with special Corum finish, including the oscillating weight engraved with the brand's name. The movement offers an advantage of the 42-hour power reserve.

The Corum Admiral's Cup Challenge 44 Split-Second is secured to the wrist with a hand-sewn crocodile leather strap fitted with the brand's exclusive 18K red gold mechanically fastening folding clasp, holds this unique timepiece firmly to the wrist.

The center of the vulcanized rubber-coated screw-down case back reveals the Admiral's Cup Trophy stamped in 18K red gold.
