Swiss luxury watchmaker CORUM has expanded its prestigious Admiral collection by integrating ceramics into the design, a material with deep roots in the maritime industry due to its robustness and eco-friendliness. In embracing ceramics, known for its striking visuals, pleasant feel, and being lighter and more resistant than traditional 316L steel, CORUM marries the aesthetic of high-end watchmaking with practicality.
The new Admiral 42 Ceramic collection is a testament to this fusion, featuring ceramic and gold models that epitomize the elegance of high-tech materials combined with the classic allure of gold. With options available in both stark black and pristine white ceramics, these watches are attached to a vulcanized rubber strap, ensuring comfort and durability. They are detailed with gold-colored indices and hands, enhancing their luxurious appearance, and are water-resistant up to 50 meters, making them suitable for seafaring activities.
Additionally, CORUM introduces two unique models celebrating the energetic urban life of international ports, known for their dynamic street art. Featured here, a limited edition Admiral 42 “TAG” presents an understated yet sophisticated design with a full-black ceramic case and a black NATO strap. Its special feature is the CORUM TAG logo which glows in low-light conditions, offering a subtle yet impactful statement.
Powering these timepieces is the precise CO 395 automatic movement, ensuring 40 hours of power reserve and operating at 28,800 vibrations per hour, which guarantees accuracy. The inclusion of a sapphire crystal case back reveals the intricate workings of the movement, underscoring CORUM’s dedication to transparency and fine craftsmanship.
