Today's offering showcases this luxurious and exclusive ladies Corum Admiral's Cup watch in stainless steel with sparkling brilliant cut original factory set diamonds.
The Admiral's Cup is one of Corum's two signature lines, known for its distinctive dodecagonal (12-sided) case.
It has a gorgeous diamond studded bezel set with many large certified top Wesselton (VVS) diamonds, strong yet feminine case, and striking black mother-of-pearl dial with flags. Our photos couldn't begin to capture the color of the beautiful dial.
The approximately 38 diamonds are of course extremely high quality - bright white, clean, and full of fire as one would expect from top Wesselton certified and Corum factory set diamonds.
Powering this stunning watch is its original fine Swiss made quartz movement that never needs to be wound, and protecting the face is a sapphire crystal.
It is in mint condition. We purchased this in a group of new-old-stock or near new-old-stock Corums offered. We are unsure if this example was ever sold or if it was a display example or loaner.
Our Master Watchmaker has performed any needed servicing, done a very light touch up polish to make it present like new, and installed a new battery making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new lizard strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a new one-year warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
