Selling an Corum Admirals Cup Competition 48mm BOXES/PAPERS
This sporty Corum is a terrific piece that is a tribute to CORUM’s rich nautical heritage. The original owner spent $8,900 on this timepiece! The Silver dial with the nautical flags just pops on this piece. It gives it the perfect uniqueness & contrast that really sets the watch off.
The Admiral’s Cup race was first held in 1957 — just two years after the founding of the company — and the Corum Admiral’s Cup watch — its longest-lasting line of timepieces — was launched on the market just three years later, in 1960. The race, for the timeframe when it was held, was the most important international yachting regatta and was conducted from 1957 to 2003. And for sure, the current lineup of models of the collection, which counts over 72 different timepieces for both men and women, offers you a lot of variety, spanning from the simple timekeeping functions to the more sporty, like the chronograph, to the most esoteric, like the tides calculator. As a matter of fact, the pennants are not just there for display only: they have a hidden meaning. Which is, they use the International Code of Signals (ICS) for indicating letters and numbers using flags. The ICS system was developed before radio communications were invented, so ships could communicate with one another using flags. The cases are round, but the most iconic ones display the signature dodecagonal design.
This set comes with the outer box, the large inner wooden box, the instruction manual, warranty card, authentication card, service center booklet and hangtags. The watch is in overall mint condition. The watch itself just has some very minor surface marks. The bracelet will fit between a 6.75”- 8.25” wrist. This certified chronometer is powered by CORUM Calibre CO 947 which can be seen through the transparent caseback.
