Today's offering showcases this luxurious and exclusive mens Corum Admiral's Cup watch in solid 18K gold and ceramic.
For those not familiar, the Admiral's Cup is one of Corum's two signature lines, known for its distinctive dodecagonal (12-sided) case.
The 18K yellow gold mixed with the ceramic elements, used on the case for extra resilience, give the watch a distinctive luxury dress look.
It has a thin profile with nautical theme, dark navy blue dial with flags, sapphire crystal, and precision quartz Corum movement. The ceramic shows as a deep dark blue under lighting. Despite it's thin profile, it is not a light watch - it has a very solid feel.
The watch is fully Corum down to the buckle and in beautiful condition. On the wrist it presents as 9.6 out of 10. The back has light wear, making the complete watch about a 9.3 out of 10. Although the dial finish on these watches tended to degrade over time, the dial on this watch is original and mint.
On the wrist this Admiral's Cup presents as mint but can be bought for a small fraction of the price of a new 18K gold Corum.
Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
