Corum – Admiral Legend 42


Topped with its recognizable twelve-sided bezel, the new Admiral Legend 42 comes in a 42 mm stainless steel case – water resistant to 50 m – and a choice of two dial colors, white or blue, protected by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment.

Cruising off the seaboard of elegance, the Admiral Legend 42 model flies the colorful flags of its indexes on the dial on which point the dauphine hands, faceted, skeletonized and covered with white Superluminova.

It’s really about time Corum Bubble Watch Value returned the most favorite Bubble opinion – a timepiece collection that initially came out in the year 2000 and served a significant contemporary function in the brand’s history. Finally, the Corum Bubble watch set was stopped, probably since Corum began to go a little nuts with a few silly limited edition versions – that, looking back today, are pretty darn cool. You may remember back in 2008, when aBlogtoWatch featured a collection of limited edition Corum Bubble watches which were extremely fitting for Halloween. For Baselworld 2015, the Corum Bubble is back, and I finally have reason to look closely at the newest again.I recall a couple of years back meeting with Corum at Baselworld and inquiring about the Bubble and whether we could see one again. Someone sneered in my remarking that “we do not think that’s right for the new anymore. We have moved beyond that.” “Okay…” is all I could respond with, and we proceeded on to seeing more new variations of this Admirals Cup and Golden Bridge collection. I have always enjoyed Corum, but over the last few decades, the fun side of this brand appeared to be diminishing and being substituted with a great deal of ill-conceived high-end watches that did nothing to function the image of the brand. Later, the brand decided to stick double tourbillons into an Admiral’s Cup view, and with their new possession by China Haidian Holdings, I more or less assumed the brand’s appeal for watch fans was (at least temporarily) over. In fact, aside from some minor alterations along with a case size that’s been improved to 47mm wide from 45mm wide, the 2015 Corum Bubble is quite similar to how it was when Corum decided to stop it. Also, even though the case is bigger (and seems really large) the Corum Bubble wears smaller than it’s with snub lugs and a situation that wraps around your wrist well. That said, I am quite sure that you can imagine that using a title like the “Bubble,” this watch is thick. The sapphire crystal alone is 8mm thick and also the entire Corum Bubble watch is 18.8mm thick – but in a trendy way.

The functions of this watch of virile elegance – hours, minutes, small second at 6 o’clock and date at 3 o’clock – are powered by caliber CO 395. It beats at 28,800 vph and ensures a 42-hour autonomy to the watch. The back of the steel case gives a view of this automatic movement with its engraved rotor.

Firmly lashed down for security, the new Admiral Legend 42 is securely moored using a brown (or blue) alligator-leather strap with a triple-blade folding clasp.
