The Corum Admirals Cup Watch collection was designed as a tribute to the Admirals Cup Yacht Race. The Admirals Cup is an international sail boat racing competition arranged by the RORC. Corum has designed seven different versions: the Admirals Cup Regatta 2005, Tides 44 18kt Gold, 18kt Gold and Diamonds, Admirals Cup 29, Trophy 41, Steel.
The Admirals Cup watch has a distinct twelve sided case shape with a round sapphire crystal. All the watches in this collection are chronographs, with screw down crowns. The bezels on all the Admiral’s Cup watches display nautical pennants that correspond to the international maritime code. These pennants give the watch a distinctive sporty look.
The Regatta 2005 is the latest addition to this collection. This 44 mm watch is available in steel or 18kt rose gold. The steel version is a chronograph with a date window at 6 o’clock and a rubber screw down crown. The gold version is very unique. It tracks the phases of the moon, the tide, and the current strength, all very useful features for sailboat racers.
The Admirals Cup 18kt gold is available in a 44 mm men’s chrono version and a gold and diamond ladies version in a smaller 29 mm case, with a mother of pearl dial. If you are looking for a dressier watch the Gold and Diamonds version is available with diamond dial and gold and diamond bracelet. Consider the Admirals Cup 29 if you want a durable yet elegant ladies steel and diamond watch. The Trophy 41 is slightly smaller than the larger Regatta, measuring in at 41 mm. The interesting feature about this automatic watch is the locking arm that covers the crown. The Trophy 41 is available in either a steel or vulcanized rubber bracelet.
