This Admiral 38 contemporary line embraces the design identity of the iconic Admiral collection born 60 years ago with its instantly recognizable 12-sided case and nautical pennants on the dial.
Yet at the same time, this readapted into a smaller 38-mm diameter collection writes a new chapter by infusing it with contemporary updates such as a giving it a more rounded shape and combining both polished and satin-brushed finishes on the case with an automatic movement.
One of the most identifiable characteristics of an Admiral timepiece is the use of 12 nautical pennants as hour markers. These flags in fact conform to the International Code of Signals for indicating numbers using colored flags, so each hour is represented by its corresponding pennant.
The Admiral 42 collection proposed a family of elegant timepieces with a more modern and refined silhouette. The resulting 42-mm diameter variations, with a slimmer case diameter, has become one of CORUM’s bestselling models over the recent years.
Unveiled in 1960, only five years after the brand’s creation, it embodies CORUM’s idea of maritime watchmaking. Although it has always been loyal to its artistic fibre, CORUM has never been afraid to set sail for distant shores.
That’s the case today with the Admiral 45 Collection, a radical piece that showcases both a nautical design and watchmaking mechanics with a sporty chic and energetic feel and touch offering a variety of complications from a chronograph to a tourbillon openworked stunning watch case.
