All the codes of elegance united in a single watch: such is the feat achieved by the Admiral’s Cup Legend 38 Fiancée. This glamorous icon comes in three limited series graced with mother-of-pearl dials and set with colorful precious stones.

First came the Admiral’s Cup that has been forging its sporting legend on oceans the world over since 1960. Then the Admiral’s Cup Legend admirably preserving the identity codes of the original. And now the Admiral’s Cup Legend 38 Fiancée.This emblematic new model in the collection proudly proclaims its noble lineage through its twelve-sided bezel and its nautical pennants. Its 38 mm diameter is dedicated to feminine wrists that it delicately embraces, while remaining loyal to the sporting dimension on which the collection has built its success.

All the various elements contribute to its charm. The famous case with softened angles, a precious mother-of-pearl dial, colored stone gemsetting, and the guarantee of fine horological craftsmanship thanks to the mechanical automatic CO 082 movement with a 42-hour power reserve, beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and driving hour and minute hands as well as a date display. The oscillating weight engraved with the Corum insignia may be admired through the transparent back of the case that is water-resistant to 50 meters.

The mother-of-pearl dials, precious stones and delicate gemsetting further enhance the identity of these three models. Corum has shown a passionate dedication in fulfilling its desire to create feminine creations embodying the signature codes of the original line. The exquisitely rare dials are crafted in mother-of-pearl from Brazil and Thailand. They are adorned with nine hour-markers set with diamonds totaling approximately 0.10 carats, along with the numbers 30 and 60 appearing as appliques at 6 and 12 o’clock respectively.

The first limited series of the Admiral’s Cup Legend 38 Fiancée features a pink mother-of-pearl dial teamed with a satin strap in the same shade and a bezel set with 72 pink sapphires (approx. 0.77 carats.) Its subtle and refined nuances lend timelessly graceful appeal to the steel case issued in a 50-piece limited edition. The second 70-piece steel limited edition embodies a blend of sensuality and softness, and is set with 71 blue topazes (approx. 0.71 cts). Its light hue is further enhanced by a pristine white satin strap. Radiating refinement in an iridescent shimmering shade, the last 50-piece steel series sparkles with the fire of 72 cognac-colored citrines (approx. 0.51 cts) and beautifully matched with an immaculate white satin strap.

Distinguished by a fascinating blend of sport and elegance, the three Admiral’s Cup Legend 38 Fiancée watches are endowed with just the perfect modern touch that enables them to define exactly what a ladies’ watch should be in 2012: an instrument to both measure and ennoble time.
