Though Corum Men’s Replica has done some interesting work with their Bridge collection throughout the years, it is the Admiral’s Cup that marks the brand’s strongest and most recognizable design language. For 2016, Corum has released the Corum Admiral Legend 42 Auto and Admiral Legend 42 Chronograph replica watches that serve as a great counterpart to some of their more unusual pieces like the Bubble replica watch that was reintroduced last year. We’ve got four interesting replica watches to cover here, so let’s get started.
First, we have two models of the Corum Admiral Legend 42 Auto Replica.Right off the bat, you’ll notice the iconic twelve-sided bezels on these stainless steel pieces that measure in at 42mm. You have your choice of either a deep blue or white dial, and the sapphire crystal over it is double anti-reflective-treated. With an overall water resistance rating of 50m for the case, we would have hoped for a little more from a replica watch aimed at people who like to be around water.
The dial is graced with a colorful array of nautical flags that bring a nice flare to the table and blend nicely into the theme of the replica watch – and at 3 o’clock, an inconspicuous date window hidden is in one of the flags. The Rhodium-coated dauphine hands are skeletonized and treated with Super-LumiNova while a small seconds is at work right above 6 o’clock. The back of the case receives a sapphire crystal to show off the movement here as well. The Corum Admiral Legend 42 Auto replica watches are powered by the CO 395 that offers a 42-hour power reserve. The CO 395 is really a base ETA 2895, and Corum has engraved the rotor on this occasion.
The Corum Admiral Legend 42 Chronographs maintain the 42mm sizing, but consist of one stainless steel model while introducing another similar version outfitted with an 18k red gold bezel, crown, and pushers for added class. The stainless steel model offers a rich blue dial while the red gold is paired with a simple black backdrop with each showcasing time, date, and chronograph counters. The date window for these variants is not integrated into the dial as well as the three-hand versions so you can’t miss it nestled in between 4 and 5 o’clock. The chronographs drop the water resistance rating to 30m and maintain a sapphire crystal case back. The movement shown off is the CO 984 that beats at 4Hz (28,000vph) with a power reserve of 42 hours.
The Corum Admiral Legend 42 Chronographs Replica Watch In Discount certainly stand out as classy and elegant but it is the simplicity of the Corum Admiral Legend 42 Auto models that really catch my eye. Corum finds its stride when sticking to a nautical motif, and these models illustrate that point perfectly. While definitely not as intricate or refined as something like the Ulysse Nardin Grand Deck, the Corum Admiral Legend 42 Auto offers a solid alternative for someone with an affinity for sea-themed replica watches and who doesn’t mind a little extra color in the palette.
