By TLex In association with the Banque Populaire, a major player in the sailing world, CORUM are supporting one of the most sought-after nautical challenges: the Trophee Jules Verne. CORUM, who are the Official Timekeeper of this prestigious round-the-world race will present a dedicated watch to honor its partnership. CORUM have naturally chosen a model from their Admiral’s Cup collection – the watch of sailing devotees and enthusiasts since 1960 . . .
The dial of the Admiral’s Cup SEAFENDER 48 Chrono Centro bears the inscription 'Trophee Jules Verne 2012', while the back is engraved with a depiction of the race course. If the team manages to better the existing record, Corum will reward each member of the Maxi Trimaran Banque Populaire V crew with a watch from this special edition, personalized with his individual name. So the 14 crew members are engaged in the round-the-world race not only to carry off the Trophy, but also to win a CORUM watch!
