Launched in 1960, only five years after the Corum brand itself, the Admiral's Cup has been the longest-running and defining line in the Corum catalog. For 2011, Corum took the Admiral's Cup back to its roots as a stylish men's watch with equal measures of sporting vigor and formal dress panache. This 42mm Corum Admiral's Cup Legend 42 is a stainless steel and 18-karat rose gold companion for a gentleman seeking the "one watch" for all occasions. Rugged stainless steel comprises the durable lugs, case, and crown guards. Rich 18-karat rose gold adorns the crown, 12-sided bezel, and dial details. Since 2006, the Admiral's Cup has become known as a major player in the oversized sportswatch category, but the Legend 42 places greater emphasis on class than mass. All elements of the dodecagonal rehaut and dial are finished in subdued and refined tones. Gold hour indices blend with anthracite "teak deck" vertical guilloche that steps beyond the utilitarian ethic of the sports watch category. A butter-soft calfskin leather strap with brown hide and contrasting "rose gold" stitching provides an ideal complement to the dial features. Corum equips this upscale Admiral's Cup Legend 42 with a stainless steel twin-trigger double deployant clasp. So deluxe an accessory would be seem excessive on a conventional "tool watch," but on this two-way dress/play savant, a full deployant will gratify the fortunate owner. Within the Legend 42's signature 12-facet case beats the Corum caliber CO 395. Based on the thin and fine ETA 2892-A2 automatic, the CO 395 offers reliability and precision in equal measure. Hacking seconds permits exact synchronization to a reliable reference time, and a modern 4hz (28,800 VpH) beat rate keeps timing on-point when shocks or vibrations strike the wrist. Corum's custom rose gold winding rotor energizes the 42-hour power reserve via smooth bidirectional winding.
