Corum was founded in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland by Gaston Ries and his nephew, René Bannwart in 1955. Its name began to circulate insistently and to be known throughout the world after they presented a watch made from a $20 gold coin which immediately had a lot of success. From that moment on, Corum devoted himself to creating very special watches, with unusual shapes and using innovative materials. One of the most interesting results was the watch offered here. The lot offered here is named ADMIRALS CUP for the presence of the international nautical pennants on the dial, another particularity is the unusual shape of the case, octagonal, this design makes this watch immediately identifiable. Completed by a diamond bezel and an integrated solid 18k gold bracelet it is definitely a watch with a very unique look.
