Corum presents the Admiral 45 Tourbillon Cortina Watch 50th Anniversary Special Edition, a 45mm timepiece specially created for Cortina Watch’s 50th Anniversary.
Corum was first retailed at the Cortina Watch boutique at Lucky Plaza in the 1980s with Jeremy Lim, CEO of Cortina Watch, adding, “In 1992, Cortina Watch and Corum first got together to launch a special edition timepiece to celebrate our 20th anniversary, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be able to collaborate again for our golden jubilee. This extraordinary creation is a wonderful testament to our treasured relationship, which has withstood the test of time.”
Limited to 10-pieces globally, no two pieces of the emblematic dodecagonal-shaped Admiral case in this collection are the same due to the random results of combining fluctuating layers of carbon composite with 18K gold inclusions. Each watch is therefore unique, and the use of cutting-edge material further enhances the already striking gold elements, the purity of the stark black sunray-finished dial, and the impressive tourbillon.
To ensure that the gold inclusions are evenly dispersed throughout the carbon composite, the brand had to develop and construct a unique tool specifically for the case's construction. Carbon is incredibly light yet durable, therefore the choice of material for the big casing increases wearers' degree of comfort. This revolutionary fusion material is proprietary to Corum, making it currently the only watch brand to use it in its creations.
The watch also features a sunray-finished anthracite dial with an aperture at 6 o'clock for the tourbillon.
