Corum Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Review

Sponsored post – (What does it mean? ))

Watches in a stealth look, anyway, are among my favorites. If then still a rich dark green and some corners and edges are added, is safe to my attention. And exactly that happened to me, as I leafed through the current Corumcatalogue.

In addition to the usual models of the Corum Admiral’s Cup series, as some of you maybe due to the colorful flags on the dial or bezel know, the inconspicuous among these watches all things caught my eye: the Corum Admiral’s Cup legend 42 with black coated case (42 mm) and dark green dial (ref. A395/02627).


And if you have even the possibility of a closer to be able to look at a watch from Corum collection, then you do of course this also. So, my choice fell on this watch. -For two reasons: on the one hand because of its design, on the other hand because of the price. Because you have to know: Corum definitely belongs to the category of luxury watch manufacturer, whose timepieces like even five to six (!) Cost amounts. We will come to that in this series certainly even. A watch should make but once the beginning, moving in a price range, which is high, but at least not totally unattainable. By what price range we are talking about, more on that later at payhelpcenter.com.

Let’s see the dark first Corum Admiral’s Cup legend 42 something accurate including the aforementioned corners and edges:

It is obvious: the motto of this watch – in addition to the Admiral’s Cup is – the square. A closer look: The twelve corner (Dodecagon) in combination with flag icons from the maritime, which are found instead of the twelve numbers on the bezel (see Flaggenalphabet). Accordingly, the double anti-reflective Sapphire Crystal of the clock in the same way and way polygon is formed. Definitely a special and certainly complex and not just cheap manufacturing. So far only watches have come under me who had either a classic round or a “square” glass (TV-dial). Who so a little want to deviate from the usual design of the watches, for which a Corum could Admiral’s Cup be something.

Corum Admiral’s Cup legend 42 – variants

At the “stealth-legend”, which you can see above, that go for the Admiral’s Cup series typical flag icons a little under or are only hinted at. To correctly read the colors are missing while, you can put together but the time still – swift or non-swift doesn’t matter there. Who is for the original design of the legend 42 interested – here the classic version:

Now prefer the camouflaged sporting or Dresswatch version according to your personal taste. Either way: I think I it’s good that Corum captures all too stubborn on this (officially licensed) flag concept and provides its customers with some variations. Finally, is not every sailor – or like it “colorful” on the dial. In addition to the three pointer watches, there are also some Chronographs in the series. My personal favorite is a clock with dark housing here of course. Albeit in a slightly different color combination – khaki dial:

But back to the three pointer legend – and some further information:

Corum Admiral’s Cup legend 42-technical details

Inside the legend 42 strikes a plant named CO395 Corum. Which in turn is based on the Swiss automatic movement ETA 2895. The special thing about it is that Corum this work in the variant with “small seconds”, so a decentralised seconds display above the “6”, has used (ETA 2895-1) – and refined it. Very clearly visible through the sapphire glass:

One could have made himself easier there. Corum had 2824 can take a standard like the ETA, other manufacturers like and often use, and can renounce the small seconds. Apparently you didn’t mean it and resorted to a more expensive work.

The diameter of the legend is 42 – hence the name – pleasant 42 millimeters. And also not very thick tells the clock thanks to the height of 9.5 mm. It appears whom to filigree, which takes place in the Corum Admiral’s Cup series some more watches with a diameter of 45 and 47 mm. No problem.

The housing of the legend 42 is PVD coated and depending on the light and intensity, it works even Jet Black, once it has a slightly metallic ‘gun look’. The same goes for the Green dial – it varied colour, depending on the prevailing light:

Also: The stealth-legend 42 comes a textile band NATO-style with one, is waterproof to 50 meters and their pointers are provided with the lamp of super-Luminova . What is the water resistance, so this is an occasionally emerging point of criticism. And actually, Corum should consider upgrading into account for future models. Especially since other Admiral’s models quite at 100 and 300 meter water resistance are Cup. Sailing the 50 meters are insufficient – only just for swimming/diving.

Let’s get to the price of the dark Corum Admiral’s Cup legend 42 – which is 3.125 euros. This is of course not little. What you get? Now, a sporty and striking clock, which is suitable for everyday use and dispenses with unnecessary bling-bling and “brand Protze” – is yet to settle in the luxury sector. The effort that was put into the product design and the work clearly demonstrates a certain luxury claim. Although the design differs from the mainstream, is idiosyncratic and a little exotic, but not overdone or too avant-garde. And the stealth – and military-look legend is 42, I think, extremely good. The clock reminds me with their corners, edges somehow on a stealth bomber. Why, whatever – I like this Association.
Who all this in terms of price still not convinced the should bear in mind that it is a non-binding price recommendation. Ever allow concessionaires to speak 😉 There’s also this watch also used. So who has no problem legend 42 to wear a “pre-loved”, which may be this watch with a smaller budget.

For whom is the Corum Admiral Cup’s legend 42 something?

Certainly not for the typical Rolex – or Panerai straps. The clock don’t cry equal to each counter, how much does it cost? Who is it to carry an immediately recognizable from afar status symbol on the arm, is legend in the presented here 42 rather wrong. Especially if one opts for stealth Variant. It fails although Hinsehen design on – heard but definitely to the subtle Corum watches (as I said, Corum may also different and very much more prominently). In addition, Corum flies a little under the radar, what’s a wide brand recognition. The brand is more something for insiders and watch connoisseurs. And I suppose that Corum customers appreciate that their brand. Not everyone says something, you have to tell a little about. And let’s face it: the proud owner of the clock not likes to tell something about his watch? 😉
In short: This watch is something that are looking for an exceptional timepiece with corners and edges, give little great brand awareness, and yet not renounce luxury for all those. And who would like to know more as owners of such clock “tick”, I recommend this to the idea a just purchased legend 42 in the watch forum – including the comments.

So far to the Corum in stealth mode. In the next articles will deal with some more interesting watches of this brand. Especially the technical aspect will play then a special role. But more about that then.
