Corum Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Double Tourbillon Watch

Corum Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Double Tourbillon Watch


Inside the iconic twelve-sided case of the Admiral's Cup watch beats a gem of precision timekeeping: the CO 1008 calibre with two parallel-mounted tourbillons. A horological tour de force, this exclusive mechanism also makes room for a retrograde date and a particularly innovative time-adjustment system. By pressing the crown pusher, the wearer can instantly bring the minute hand to the 12th hour-marker to set the exact time, and this up to five minutes before and after a full hour.
