Corum AC-One 45 Tides
by Kyle Stults on July 09, 2014


A Corum icon now returns in a reworked design:  the Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Tides watch.   21 years after its launch, this model with its mechanical movement driving indications of the time and strength of the tides, the lunar cycle, as well as the strength of the currents and the height of the tides, remains a truly unique complication in the fine watchmaking world.  It remains the one and only movement with a tides indicator, exemplifying Corum’s long-standing commitment to the sea-faring watch enthusiast.

Corum Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Meteorite Dual Time

Corum Admiral's Cup Legend 42 Meteorite Dual Time Angleview

Carved out of Gibeon meteorite aged by radiometric dating at around four billion years, the dials of this 75-piece limited edition make each watch truly unique, with each cut revealing a different aspect of the meteorite’s crystalline structure.  The Gibeon meteorite was named after the nearest town to where it landed, Gibeon, Namibia (more on this below).  Though Corum is not the first to use meteorite for its dials, this particular watch is very nicely done and has a great look to it.

Corum Golden Bridge with Black Ceramic Case

Corum Golden Bridge Black Ceramic Case

One of high watchmaking’s most iconic and recognizable watches is now available in a black ceramic case.  The manual wind “golden bridge” caliber is perfectly staged within its black ceramic case framed by four sapphire crystals forming the upper glass, back and sides.  The golden bridge mechanism with its linear construction was first introduced in 1980 and quickly became a Swiss watch industry icon.  This version bears the hand-engraved Corum signature, surrounded by a slender scrolling motif depicting the three types of fern that grown in the forests of La Chaux-de-Fonds, the region where the Golden Bridge sprang to life. The red gold mainplate is also adorned with delicate hand engravings.  Great piece.

Corum Ti Bridge Power Reserve for Only Watch 2013

Corum Ti Bridge for Only Watch 2013

Corum Ti Bridge Case Engraving for Only Watch 2013

This unique piece by Corum has a titanium case with red gold inserts on the side which are hand engraved to depict Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine, and the serpent twined around his staff that has become the symbol of medicine and thus an appropriate choice for the cause of Only Watch.   The engravings are of course done by hand.  The applied Corum logo and hour-markers are gilded, as are the hours and minutes hands and the power-reserve indicator, thereby creating a contrast with the anthracite grey dial.  The watch is powered by Corum’s famous (and patented)  horizontal inline baguette movement which is held in place by four cross-bars (the angled pieces you see on the dial-side).  The Corum Caliber CO107 displays the hours and minutes as well as a linear-type power-reserve indication (3 days, noted vertically on the right side of the case as “high” to “low”).
