The Admiral remains a legendary watch with its standout dodecagonal shaped bezel and colorful nautical pennants on the dial. The new releases from Corum offer a celebration of the Swiss house’s mastery of the maritime watch. The Admiral 45 Automatic Openwork Flying Tourbillon Carbon and Gold has been brought out in a limited edition of just 48 pieces and its case is made in an all new material for the brand as it is crafted in fluctuating layers of ultra-light carbon mixed with 18-karat gold glitter. Forum has also brought out a new Admiral 42 Automatic in a full grey monochrome version crafted in sandblasted stainless steel with a gradient grey dial and nautical pennants in grey. Improvements have also been implemented on the Admiral 42 Automatic Chronograph range, pictured above in sporty and elegant white. Like all of the admiral 42s it has a power reserve of 42 hours and is now water resistant to 100 meters.

For the ladies a new fashionable Admiral 38 Automatic watch has been released whose features include a pale pink dial with Corum’s unique Grenadier Fendu finishing. It is crafted in a titanium case with 72 diamonds set on the titanium steel bezel. It is also available in white.
