By TLex For the second consecutive year CORUM is associating its name as sponsor of the world's largest closed-water regatta, the Bol d'Or Mirabaud. This 73rd edition will be particularly eventful for CORUM, who will introduce a model dedicated to the regatta furthering their support for the Okalys-Corum team. The Watch; a special 30 piece edition of Corum's new Admiral's Cup SEAFENDER Chrono.
Its 48mm Titanium case with a Blue PVD Treatment. Its black dial with a Clous de Paris hobnail design with applied 5N gold chevrons and and 5N gold hands. Housed in its specialized case is a CO960, C.O.S.C certified Automatic Chronograph movement, which is operable by its two large pushers with exclusive pushpiece-locking system. At the back of the watch is an exhibition case-back adorned with the Bol d'Or Mirabaud 2011 logo.
From CORUM The Admiral's Cup Seafender 48 Chrono Bol d'Or Mirabaud watch To celebrate the partnership with the Bol d'Or Mirabaud presented by Corum, the watch brand is presenting an exclusive timepiece proudly bearing the event colors: the Admiral’s Cup Seafender 48 Chrono Bol d'Or Mirabaud. The winners of the Bol d'Or and the Bol de Vermeil will be presented with one of these 30-piece limited edition watches. Equipped with the star complication for sports watches, the chronograph function, the Bol d'Or model features a generously sized 48 mm blue case. The model is distinguished by a twelve-sided bezel in the same shade, along with the nautical pennants that are a signature feature of the Admiral’s Cup collection.
Loyal to its tradition of innovation and originality, Corum has chosen to run counter to its usual practice by associating a 'centro' chronograph with this model. The chronograph minutes and seconds hands, traditionally appearing on two small dedicated counters, are mounted here on the same axis as the conventional hour and minutes hands. As well as resulting in an original and extremely pared-down face for a chronograph, this approach naturally also ensures enhanced readability.
The dial, richly adorned with a Clous de Paris hobnail motif and applied gold hour-markers, is enhanced by gold hands. The watch as a whole gives subtle pride of place to the blue and golden colors of the Bol d'Or Mirabaud presented by Corum.
