With this collection, Corum demonstrated their desire to move into a price area different to that of most of their history: from 1,800 to 3,000 Swiss francs. These women’s watches also mark the return of the nautical pennants that have been so important for the brand. The Admiral’s Cup Legend Lady is made in two sizes, 32 and 36 mm, with the 12-sided case softened in its lines, with a mother-of-pearl dial and satin strap. The base model is made in stainless steel, with a quartz movement. Other versions are embellished with a red gold case, guilloché work on the mother-of-pearl dial, blue topaz, red topaz and diamonds. The watches are priced from €1,750 to €7,500 for the version with diamonds.
As you can see from the diagram, Corum uses the pennants from 1 to 9 as they are, and then make combination pennants, combining two flags into one, for the two-digit numerals. The Admiral’s Cup collection is based on founder René Bannwart’s love of sailing and regattas, such as the Admiral’s Cup regattas organized by the Royal Ocean Racing Club until 2003.
