Dirk Claassen over at www.horlogenieuws.nl (Dutch) reports that Corum introduced the Admiral’s Cup Competition 48 especially for nautical sports.

The watch has a La Joux Perret caliber 8235 movement, which is based on the famous and often discussed valjoux 7750 movement. It is chronometer-certified (COSC), with 24 jewels, high-end finish and personalised rotor.

The watch case is 48mm in diameter and is made out of titanium. The Corum has a vulcanised rubber strap and the water resistancy is 300 meters. The watch is available in either black or blue. Dirk notes that the watch has this stunning twelve-facetted sapphire crystal.

Although the Corum website¬†does not show the Admiral’s Cup Competition 48, it is really worth looking. The other Admiral’s Cup watches are definately interesting for the nautical sports fan!

    I don’t like this watch, I would rather have a kermit or a sea dweller over a watch fitted with a 7750 and costing near $4500. The case is ugly in my opinion and I don’t like the dial.

    I really like the looks of the Admirals cup 48. I am a big watch fan and this is going to be my next purchase. I have tried it on and because of the way the lugs curve downward it fits great on the wrist, very comfortable!!
