Here's a sneak peak at what Corum will be presenting at the 2010 Baselworld, the Admiral's Cup Minute Repeater Tourbillon 45 created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the birth of the Admiral Cup collection. The watch will be extremely rare, with only 10 pieces to be produced. This new Admiral's Cup Model also introduces a new haute horlogerie movement for the brand, the manually-wound CO 010. This impressive new movement includes a one-minute tourbillon regulator and a minute repeater with a sonorous chime sequence and an escapement and pallet lever in silicon. The watch has an alligator leather strap with red gold prong buckle that features the Corum logo.

The Corum Admirals Cup Repeater Tourbillon 45 watch has a beautiful brushed and polished 5N 18-karat red gold case with a twelve-sided bezel. The interior of the bezel displays the signature nautical flags but in all black. The transparent grey sapphire dial have red gold hands. The tourbillon is revealed between the 4 and 5 o'clock positions. Corum has revealed that the CO 010 caliber movement used in this Admiral's Cup watch has been designed to perform with particularly impressive aural capabilities. Power (volume in decibels), precision of pitch, richness of sound, and reverberation have all been optimized through a careful balance between component design and material formulation. For example, the minute rack has been engineered to permit a greatest possible duration between strikes, and specially formulated gongs have been tuned to chime the Major 3rd note combination of A and C# for a cheerful musical sound. The movement has a 72-hour power reserve and has a water resistance of up to 30 meters.
