FrontRunners: Set to Sail

The $290,000 Corum Admiral’s Cup Minute Repeater Tourbillon 45 (www.corum.ch), a special-edition minute repeater tourbillon that marks the 50th anniversary of the manufacturer’s Admiral’s Cup watch design, is massive and water-resistant—traits that can hamper a minute repeater’s sound. But Corum enhanced the volume and clarity of the movement by using a larger, inverted minute rack and special hammers for the chiming mechanism. The case is water-resistant to 98 feet and has a turning bezel that charges the repeater mechanism.
