Do you remember the sick-bay from the original Star Trek series?
Corum have found an ingenious way to recycle the material from that to make this, the ‘Seafender 48′..
… hold on ..
…… they didn’t?
Err, apparently my information sources might have got their wires-crossed.
How about we cross directly to Corum’s press release instead?
Might be safer!
[Press Release] To celebrate the partnership with the Bol d’Or Mirabaud presented by Corum, the watch brand is presenting an exclusive timepiece proudly bearing the event colors: the Admiral’s Cup Seafender 48 Chrono Bol d’Or Mirabaud. The winners of the Bol d’Or and the Bol de Vermeil will be presented with one of these 30-piece limited edition watches
Equipped with the star complication for sports watches, the chronograph function, the Bol d’Or model features a generously sized 48 mm blue case. The model is distinguished by a twelvesided bezel in the same shade, along with the nautical pennants that are a signature feature of the Admiral’s Cup collection.
Loyal to its tradition of innovation and originality, Corum has chosen to run counter to its usual practice by associating a “centro” chronograph with this model. The chronograph minutes and seconds hands, traditionally appearing on two small dedicated counters, are mounted here on the same axis as the conventional hour and minutes hands. As well as resulting in an original and extremely pared-down face for a chronograph, this approach naturally also ensures enhanced readability.
The dial, richly adorned with a Clous de Paris hobnail motif and applied gold hour-markers, is enhanced by gold hands. The watch as a whole gives subtle pride of place to the blue and golden colors of the Bol d’Or Mirabaud presented by Corum.
