The Story Behind This Watch

The Admirals Cup has been a part of Corum's permanent collection since 1960, but it gained its iconic nautical penant flag dial in 1983.  This particular model ticks a lot of boxes for a collector: amazing condition since it is unworn since the replacement of the strap and bezel with their OEM parts, a small production run (250 in rose gold), and a major complication combination.

 

Let's talk about the complication, shall we? That is no mere chronograph.  This is a split-second (rattrapante) enabled, 1/8 of a second counter (foudroyante).  That means, this single mechanical piece can measure a sub 1 second event, and time two events simultaneously!

 

This is a discontinued model; at its time of original release, its MSRP was around $56k and its rose to as high as $63,000. The lowest priced leap second in titanium is priced around $5,500 so figure for $4k more you can get a watch that commanded a 4x higher retail. However you calculate the deal, This is the opportunity of a lifetime to pick up a highly complicated Corum at better than 75% off retail MSRP.
