The Admiral’s Cup Challenge 44 Split-Second masters time
At its heart beats the tried and tested 13 ¼’’’ CO-986 movement. Thanks to its split-second function, this 31-jewel chronograph caliber with a balance oscillating at 28,800 vibrations per hour enables smooth and easy measurement of several split times. Whether to keep track of opponents in a regatta or of one’s position on a map or chart (using the method of several successive plottings at the same seamark), the Admiral’s Cup Challenge 44 Split-Seconds is designed to meet the need.
With its famous twelve-sided case and vulcanized rubber guard protecting a screw-lock crown engraved with the CORUM key, this model is part of a maritime world built on the past and looking firmly to the future. The dial is adorned with distinctive nautical pennants around the flange. The red-rimmed chevron-style hour-markers are filled with a luminescent substance. The carbon bezel echoes the high level of technology prevalent on state-of-the-art sailboats. This same material is used on the three lever-shaped pushers that activate the functions of this exceptional chronograph: the two traditional pushers at 2 and 4 o’clock, perfectly centered on the lugs, and the one controlling the red lacquered split-second hand, at 8:30. The ultra-modern materials, vulcanized rubber and carbon, are modern symbols of technical sophistication. Their resistance to the elements is time-honored and CORUM utilizes them with great skill.
*This package will be available for LIVE bidding at the Leukemia Cup Regatta VIP Reception and Dinner on Saturday, October 1st at The San Francisco Yacht Club.
