Corum Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Chrono

Corum continues to try to capitalize on the success of the Admiral's Cup. Though, this time is different, a COSC movement. You gotta love the iconic, unmistakably, Corum design. W&R likes the non-chrono version a bit better, clean easy lines. Here is the release information on the chrono version:

For the first time, the Legend line by Corum houses a COSC-certified chronograph movement, Calibre CO984. A new icon that echoes many of the original design codes of the Admiral’s Cup in a subtly harmonious blend of sportiness and elegance. Loyal to the collection’s characteristic twelve-sided bezel, this new legend appears with softened angles. The chronograph comes in several variations: steel, red gold or two-tone. The classic and resolutely horological nature of this model is revealed through the dials adorned with a vertical or barleycorn guilloché motif, depending on the version. The understated colours of the dial, particularly the blue inspired by the original Admiral’s Cup model, echo the flowing lines of the case.
