New: Corum Admiral 42 Automatic “Grenadier Fendu”
Corum refreshes the iconic Admiral collection with the new Admiral Automatic “Grenadier Fendu”, launching 6 new models in steel, steel and gold, with a choice of two dial colors.
Admiral is one of the recognized symbols of Corum. Originally released as part of the America’s Cup collection, when Corum didn’t continue its partnership with the America’s Cup, the collection had to be reimagined and brought about the collection, renamed Admiral from 2017. The 12-face case remains, and the penchant for exploring new materials continues under new names. E.g. The Corum Admiral AC-One 45 features a wooden dial and bronze case, the 2016 Corum Admiral’s Cup Legend 47 Worldtimer features the iconic nautical flag pattern, sapphire skeleton dial and the old model name Admiral’s Cup.
The basis of the new “Grenadier Fendu” is the Admiral 42 Automatic, bronze edition. But the 6 new models have steel cases, steel bezels or gold bezels. There are two dials to choose from – dark blue or black. The dial is made of a huge piece of bronze, a very unusual dial material, with a special pattern created by replica Corum, known as “Grenadier Fendu”. Choose from an alligator leather strap or a stainless steel bracelet.
As one of Corum’s most iconic collections, Admiral adheres to the spirit of modern design, inspired by a long history of sailing. This collection is beloved by collectors, especially those eager to indulge in an active and elegant lifestyle. Now, the master craftsmen of Corum have launched six coveted Admiral 42 self-winding watches with unique dial patterns.
Three years after the inaugural America’s Cup in 1957 (celebrating the 1851 America’s Cup, today the oldest international sailing competition), Corum has released its first Admiral watch. The brand partnered with the event organization as a sponsor to create the first square Admiral watch, which debuted in 1960.
Twenty years later, in 1980, the Admiral collection was completely redesigned. Now with its 12-sided (dodecagon) case shape and colorful sailing pennants, it quickly gained a cult following and elevated the collection to the legendary status it enjoys today. In the decades since, the Admiral has been greatly appreciated as new and more visionary evolutions (always inspired by ocean racing and sailing) laid the groundwork for this seamaster timepiece focus on. replica watches swiss
