Swiss watch brand Corum has long been known for its Admiral collection of watches, inspired by the great sailing races and the sea. Over the decades, the collection has enjoyed a host of iterations, but this year, at Watches & Wonders 2021, the brand reinterprets the classic, modern icon into a  modern, high-tech masterpiece.  Today, to celebrate its mastery of the maritime watch, Corum unveils the Admiral 45 Automatic Openworked Flying Tourbillon Carbon & Gold watch.

The Admiral is known for its dodecagonal-shaped bezel and nautical pennants on the dial. The newest Admiral 45 Automatic Openworked Flying Tourbillon Carbon & Gold watch still boasts those legendary signatures, but in a new way. The pennant are in black while the case is crafted in black carbon with gold flecks for a truly high-tech look. It marks the first time that Corum uses light-wight carbon and to signify the importance of the watch, the brand mixes the carbon with 18-karat gold glitter to achieve this eye-catching look.

The new Corum Admiral 45 Automatic Open-worked Tourbillon is crafted of carbon layers and gold flecks. It was unveiled this week at Watches & Wonders 2021.

Crafted using layer after layer of the material, every case is unique. Just 48 pieces will be made of the dynamic 45mm watch. For Corum, whose watchmaking standards are incredibly stringent, it isn’t enough to offer a unique case and innovative material, though. The brand also super charges the watch with an open-worked movement with flying tourbillon escapement in colors that mime the black carbon and gold case.

The automatic flying tourbillon movement, CO 298, was developed in house by the brand. It beats at 3Hz to offer incredible precision, and the tourbillon escapement compensates for errors in timekeeping due to the effects of gravity on the watch when it is in a horizontal position. Equipping the piece with a flying tourbillon is also a nod to the sailing world, where safe navigation of the seas requires ultimate precision. In addition to the hour, minute and flying tourbillon, the watch displays the power reserve indicator and offers 72 hours of reserve.

The openworked movement is visible on both the dial side and case back side to showcase the meticulously finished components, the magnificent bridges and the mesmerizing constantly rotating flying tourbillon escapement. The watch also boasts a strap made of rubber and synthetic textiles with genuine gold stitching. The high-tech, high-mech watch is water resistant to 100 meters.

A tour of the dial showcase a gold-toned brass flanged for the minutes indication, against which the black pennants sit. The three counters are crafted using both silvers and gold-toned materials. The crown is actually 5N 18-karat rose gold. Both sapphire crystals are treated with an anti-reflective coating. The new carbon and gold Admiral 45 Open Worked Flying Tourbillon retails for $59,800.

The new standout timepiece is complemented by new Admiral 38mm and 42mm Automatics, but that is another story coming soon.
