What a fantastic looking new watch from Corum — the Admiral’s Cup Chronograph 48 Grand Prix. While it is surely to big for my wrist (48mm), the orange/black/grey colors in this watch work tremendously well together. Limited to just 25 pieces, the watch was created to commemorate Corum’s sponsorship of the Okalys-Corum team and the Corum Grand Prix, one of 8 races/regattas in the Challenge Julius Baer, which in fact began this weekend with the Grand Prix Beau-Rivage Palace on Lake Geneva. The watch has a titanium case in Corum’s twelve-sided design. Water resistant to 300 meters (990 feet). In the close-up photo below, you can see that the bezel and crown guard are composed of vulcanized rubber. Comes on a leather strap with textile-looking finish (interesting?!?) with orange stitching — and a matching titanium buckle engraved with the Corum logo. Available at authorized Corum dealers in June 2010 with a price of about $10,000.

I really like some of the new Admiral’s Cup pieces Corum has come out with this past year!
