Review: Corum – Admiral’s Cup Legend 32mmWritten by Alvin Wong
Sporty, glamorous and fuss-free – Corum’s vaunted Admiral’s Cup collection, often associated with testosterone-charged seafaring inspiration, gets a feminine makeover.
The collection’s signature characteristics remain: the nautical pennants as hour indexes and 12-sided case, but the entire watch has been feminised with a 32mm case, chic colourways and choice of stone-settings. Our pick is this two-tone version with mother-of-pearl dial. Although shorn of gemstones, the watch’s versatility makes it an ideal dawn-to-dusk accompaniment.
Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
