The perfect watch for hot, sunny days! Resolutely sporty and geared up for all manner of aquatic adventures, the new Admiral’s Cup Challenger 44 Chrono Rubber features a colorful vulcanized rubber case. This rugged yet flexible material earns its pedigree through a high-temperature, high-pressure injection procedure that modifies its structure to give it a matte look and a velvet-soft feel. Available in four colorful variations, this timepiece is equipped with an automatic chronograph movement chronometer-certified by the COSC.
Housed within a generous 44 mm-diameter case, the automatic CO 753 movement of the new Admiral’s Cup Challenger 44 Chrono Rubber powers the hours, minutes, small seconds, date and chronograph functions. It is endowed with a 48-hour power reserve and its finishing along with oscillating weight may be admired through an exhibition caseback.
The first version, a chocolate-tone 50-piece limited edition, harmoniously combines vulcanized rubber with the red gold of the crown, pushers and bezel. The oscillating weight, the hands, the applied Corum logo on the dial as well as the hour-markers are all red gold- plated. The two other 70-piece variations in grey and green respectively feature a black dial, enlivened by hands and hour-markers coated with white Superluminova for the former and green for the latter. The crown and pushers are in black PVD-treated grade 5 titanium. Finally, the last version teaming an orange strap with a black bezel and dial will be available in a 120-piece limited series. The oscillating weight springs a surprise by reflecting the strap color for the orange and green versions, and appearing clad in black PVD for the grey model.
Water-resistant to 100 meters, the Admiral’s Cup Challenger 44 Chrono Rubber comes with a vulcanized rubber strap fitted with a red gold pin buckle for the chocolate-tone version and a triple folding clasp for the other versions. ■
