We have two models of the Corum Admiral Legend 42 Auto. Right off the bat, you’ll notice the legendary twelve-sided bezels on these stainless steel bits that measure in at 42mm. You have your choice of a deep blue or white dial, and the sapphire crystal over it is double anti-reflective-treated. Having an overall water resistance rating of 50m for your case, we would have hoped for a bit more from a watch geared toward people who prefer to be around water.The dial is adorned with a vibrant array of nautical flags which bring a wonderful flare to the dining table and blend nicely into the theme of the watch – and also at 3 o’clock, an inconspicuous date window concealed is in one of those flags. The Rhodium-coated dauphine hands are skeletonized and handled with Super-LumiNova while a small minutes is at work right above 6 o’clock. The rear of the case receives a sapphire crystal to flaunt the movement here too. The Corum Admiral Legend 42 Auto watches are powered with the CO 395 that offers a 42-hour power book. The CO 395 is really a foundation ETA 2895, also Corum has engraved the rotor on this occasion.The Corum Admiral Legend 42 Chronographs keep the 42mm sizing, but consist of a single stainless steel model whilst introducing another similar version equipped with an 18k red gold bezel, crownmolding, and pushers for extra class. The stainless steel model offers a rich blue dial whereas the reddish gold is paired with an easy black background with each showcasing date, time, along with chronograph counters. The date window for all these versions isn’t integrated into the dial in addition to the three-hand versions so that you can not miss it nestled between 4 and 5 o’clock. The chronographs shed the water resistance rating to 30m and keep up a sapphire crystal case back. The motion shown off is the CO 984 that beats at 4Hz (28,000vph) with a power reserve of 42 hours.
