Known for its daring spirit and cutting-edge designs over the decades, Corum now brings a new side to its Admiral 42 collection with artistic innovations that rock traditional haute horology. The brand offers two new artistic versions of the beloved nautical timepiece — each inspired by the graffiti at many a bustling seaport.
The first of these exceptional creations is the Admiral 42 “Tag,” a limited-edition masterpiece of only 50 pieces. This timepiece boasts a stealthy, full-black look, featuring a sand-blasted ceramic case and a sleek black NATO strap. However, what sets the Tag edition apart is its dynamic chameleon-like abilities. By day, the discreetly placed Corum tag/logo on the dial remains virtually invisible, black on black in hand-written style — blending seamlessly into the watch’s aesthetic. But as night falls, it comes alive in luminescent splendor, creating an unexpected and captivating surprise: the Corum name glows bright green thanks to the luminescent material.
The second model in the collection takes a different approach to design and is crafted in white ceramic. It’s a canvas of creativity, where pennant indexes and hands are playfully adorned with multi-colored paint splashes and drippings, turning the watch into a testament to Corum’s on-going commitment to embracing daring designs and turning them into unique and eye-catching statements. This wearable work of art is a vivid representation of the meeting point between artistic expression and horological craftsmanship.
Behind the aesthetic brilliance of these Admiral 42 Ceramic art watches lies a heart that beats with precision. The C0 395 automatic movement is at the core, offering 40 hours of power reserve and keeping time with unrivaled accuracy, thanks to a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The black version is fitted with a nylon strap, while the white version boasts a rubber strap.
For those who appreciate the intricate mechanics of watchmaking, the sapphire crystal set into the case back of the Admiral 42 Ceramic collection offers a mesmerizing glimpse into the inner workings of the movement. The Admiral 42 Ceramic collection of artistic pieces are not just stylish accessories; they are ruggedly resilient, designed to withstand the test of time and the challenges of an active lifestyle. The Corum Tag watches retail for $14,800.
