Corum has released a couple limited edition Admiral’s Cup Tides watches to commemorate its re-entry into the Brazilian market. While I am less interested in Brazil, this is a good opportunity for you to take a look at one of the more interesting (but less often seen) timepieces Corum has ever produced. Launched for the first time in 1993, the Admiral’s Cup 48 Tides was considered a huge innovation in the watchmaking industry — in many ways it is still a benchmark in the world of high-end timepieces. The Admiral’s Cup 48 Tides is essentially a navigation instrument, able to provide important nautical information such as the strength of the tide, an estimation of the water levels, the strength of the currents and the time of the tide. The watch is certified by France’s Hydrographic and Oceanographic Service which oversees various critical maritime and nautical records.
These particular models are a tribute to the 65th anniversary of the Iate Clube de Santos, one of the most important nautical institutions in Brazil. Presented in two versions: a sporty titanium edition, water-resistant to 300 meters, and a more “urban” model in red gold, water-resistant to just 50 meters.
