Corum Admiral's Cup AC - One 45 Regatta: dressed for the race

Swiss watch brand Corum has just presented a new model: the Admiral's Cup AC - One 45 Regatta. A timepiece entirely appropriate given the involvement of Corum in the world of sailing. A watch equipped with a 45 mm titanium case with a selfwinding calibre with function "Regatta". Explanations.

Today, Corum, historically very linked with the world of the Sea (partner of Loïck Peyron and Ben Ainslie), joined the closed circle of the watchmakers with a timepiece with function regatta; a template designed by the brand which comes to be redeemed by a Chinese group.

From the Admiral's Cup collection created in 1960, the new Admiral's Cup AC - One 45 Regatta model strongly reaffirms the founder triptych of Corum: "a mechanical combines technical innovation and great watchmaking tradition, a DNA firmly rooted in the world of sailing, as well as a strong, recognizable design between all" recalls the mark in its release.

The Admiral's Cup AC model - One 45 Regatta beats to the rhythm of a new self-winding calibre: CO 040. A mechanism that has both a countdown jumping adjustable from 0 to 10 minutes, a digital display by window for perfect readability, as well as a chronograph capable of timing up to 12 hours of the race.

Before the first canon of the departure of the regatta, the countdown is programmed by the Crown on the number of minutes set by the criteria of the regatta between 0 and 10 minutes, and then starts its run on pressure of the pusher. The countdown begins to count down the minutes until the start of the event.

If it is set to 10 minutes, the 9 in the window pointed to by a red arrow at 0300 is reached by a jump after 60 seconds, before the other minutes tick by until you get to 0, when sounds the last cannon shot marking the start of the race. This regatta movement therefore allows the competitor to adjust its countdown of incrementally in any minute between the first and the last cannon shot before a regatta.

When boats can finally cross the line of departure, an ingenious mad wheel blocks the Cog of the countdown, while the chronograph continues his race for counting up to 12 hours of regatta, via its red Central seconds hand and its counters 30 minutes at 12 o'clock and 12 hours at 6 o'clock. This chronograph beats at a frequency of 4 Hz (28'800 vibrations per hour).

If the design of the collection has been redesigned in 2014 with the advent of the line AC - One, the 45 mm case diameter fits accurately into the original codes of the Admiral's Cup collection, with a very iconic dodecagonal bezel and the nautical flags on the flange. In this integrated architecture alternating polished and satin finishes, the treated titanium inserts black PVD come in turn to slip between the middle and the bottom as well as between the bezel and the stature.

Shaped titanium grade 5 with a treated bezel PVD black, the housing is waterproof to 300 metres and equipped with a sapphire, leaving admire finishes of the CO 040 gauge and its treated oscillating black PVD.

Black Dial features clear, indexes and hands with Superluminova while of sporty red notes punctuate the whole. Finally, a strap with titanium or alligator strap with Deployant clasp comes equip the Admiral's Cup AC - One 45 Regatta.

The mechanism incorporates an exhaust with wheel and anchor oxidized silicon, in the heart of an exclusive automatic movement developed in the sister unit of the Vallée de Joux. Of course, one can admire its finishes hand, notably the Côtes de Genève decoration practiced on the plate and the bridges on the back of the watch.

Caliber P-371 displays the hours and minutes to downtown and needles are attached to the heart of a circle that forms a 8 lucky with the Tower of the tourbillon cage, visible at 12 o'clock. Around, the black dial is enhanced by a relief structure, available in two variants, which echoes the blades of the turbine.

As the housing, it adopts a new diameter of 46 mm and door reinforced ties with three horns. Perrelet offers three versions black DLC treated steel and natural steel, all black, pink gold and steel treated black DLC presented on black rubber bracelets.
