Introduction

Founded in 1955, Corum are a watchmaker famed for their unique outlook on horological design, with collections such as the Coin and Bubble both standing as aesthetically unique and interesting. In keeping with this overtly unique sense of style and aesthetic that Corum use to create their timepieces is the Admirals Cup collection, which was born in the 1960s to celebrate the eponymous Admirals Cup international yachting regatta. Featuring a 12-sided case and nautical pennants on the dial, the Corum Admirals Cup is easily one of the most distinctive timepieces on the market. Offered here we have the Corum Admirals Cup 44 Tides Regatta that was launched in 2003 to celebrate Corum’s return as the official timekeeper and Co-sponsor of the Admiral’s Cup yachting regatta in that same year. Launched as a limited edition of 250 pieces, the Admirals Cup 44 Tides Regatta features a litany of yachting complications such as a moon phases with strength of tides subdial, height of tide with strength of current dial, and a time of tides with a 24-hour indicator in addition to a date and marine pendants to indicate the time.
