Corum Admiral's Cup "Seafender 48 Tides" Review The Corum Admiral's Cup Seafender 48 Tides limited edition may be the most literal "Flagship" model of any watchmaker's sports watch lineup. The dodecagonal (12-sided) Admiral’s Cup is the signature sports watch of Corum, and its nautical pennant hour indices are iconic to fans of the brand. At 48mm in titanium, this Corum Admiral's Cup Seafender Tides is one of only 300 manufactured in an exclusive limited run. More than a rarity, the “Tides” offers a Corum exclusive complication: a comprehensive moon phase, AM/PM indication, tide height, current strength, and tide direction chart. Few sailors’ watches offer a more pertinent display of practical information. Combine a 300-meter water resistance, the 12-sided case, and the romantic roll of the tidal indications, and you've got a distinctive watch. Add the rarity of this titanium Corum Admiral's Cup Seafender 48 Tides and you have an inspection-ready specimen worthy of a flag officer. Corum's Admiral's Cup combines the long-running 12-sided case with a unique 12-sided bezel and a crystal to match. No other sports watch in the luxury sector features this degree of complexity, and it makes Corum's bold 300-meter (1,000-foot) water resistance rating all the more remarkable. Corum enhances the standard 48mm Admiral's Cup with a striking two-tone tandem of brushed titanium and black vulcanized rubber. Black natural rubber center links split the brushed-and-polished outer links, and each flank of the bracelet tapers into an elegant conforming end link for a seamless appearance. Corum secures this mass of class with a double-deployant brushed steel clasp. Its twin-trigger release is redolent of superb quality, and the assembly impresses with its robust construction. When closed, the clasp cuts a low profile so as to leave the smooth aesthetic sweep of the bracelet links unsullied. The dial of the Corum Admiral's Cup Seafender is rendered in a matte black that contrasts dramatically with the titanium case. Like the case and sapphire, the dial echoes the duodenary motif; each of the 12 facets features a separate nautical signal flag. The three-register tidal chart and its vivid tones add complexity and character to the composition. Whether topside aboard a racing sailboat or seaside admiring the surf, enjoying the Corum Admiral's Cup Seafender 48 Tides is guaranteed to be the high-water mark of your day.
