The Corum-sponsored French ENERGY TEAM, led by Loick Peyron, achieved their first major victory in the America’s Cup World Series a few weeks ago in Venice. This year Corum has created a nice microsite dedicated to the America’s Cup which I recommend you visit at http://sailing.corum.ch/. On the watchmaking front, the Corum’s Admiral’s Cup collection has been a perennial winner since its introduction in 1960. Though the Admiral’s Cup line has seen several iterations and evolutions over the years, it has always retained its status as the definitive Corum sports watch — in fact in my estimation it is one of the definitive sea-faring watches in all of the luxury watch world. The Admiral’s Cup Seafender 44 Chrono Centro you see here is one of the latest evolutions of the line, with a more sporty and somewhat technical look aimed towards drawing in the younger watch buyer. I find this the watch impressive for both its looks and its technical capabilities. On the “looks” front, there is a grade 5 titanium case, black textured dial, and subtle use of red. On the technical side, there is the unique display of the chronograph function in the center and mono-pusher control — see the two center-set timing hands — one dedicated to the chronograph seconds, the other (red-tipped) a 60-min counter with red superluminova. Bottom line is that this is a great looking watch with equally attractive technical features centered around the mon0-pusher chronograph.
