For 60+ years, The Admiral’s Cup was
the ultimate challenge for the world’s
best ocean racing teams, each entering 3
yachts. More than simply a sponsor, in 1991,
Corum’s yachts, Saphir, Rubis and Diamant
won the event.

In honor of The Admiral’s Cup, last held in 2005, Corum
created the Admiral’s Cup Collection. A recent addition
the collection, the Corum Legend 47 Worldtimer
features a 47mm titanium housing to protect an auto-
winding movement operating at a rate of 28,800
vibrations per hour with a 48-hour power reserve. The
timepiece was created to ensure precise accuracy, a
singularly critical feature for those gauging the exact
moment at which to cross the start line of a race.
Travelers will appreciate the World Time complication
to monitor a second time zone as evidenced by the 24
time zones identified by respective city abbreviations
engraved around the dial beneath a sapphire crystal. A
black vulcanized rubber strap with tri-fold clasp secures
the Legend 47 in place while at sea or on dry land. As a
testament to the absolute functionality of the Admiral’s
Cup watches, one can be found on the wrist of noted
English yachtsman Ben Ainsle; Corum.ch.
