While Corum introduced the first Admirals Cup watch in 1960, it was not until 1983 that the most distinctive and immediately recognizable elements – colorful nautical pennants in the place of hour markers and a distinctive 12-sided bezel – were added to the design of what is today arguably the brand’s most famous flagship line. Named for the legendary sailing race, Corum’s Admiral’s Cup watches continue to be associated with all major sailing events and are a tribute to the spirit of men of the sea.
