Corum introduced their newest Admiral’s Cup wristwatch in Basel, this past March. The Admiral’s Cup Black Challenge 44 is one of the nicer designs I have seen from Corum in recent years. The 44 mm stainless steel case with black PVD coating is smaller than the Challenge 48 models, but that is a good thing. What is lacks in width it definitely makes up for in height. The case is nice and tall. The Black Challenge comes in either a white or black dial, both look very classy.

A date indicator window set at a 45-degree angle is visible between 4 and 5 o’clock. There is a date corrector, on the side of the case, at 10 o’clock. The glass is Corum’s signature cambered twelve-sided sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. The strap is black vulcanized rubber with a stainless steel PVD coated folding clasp. The caseback is steel with a raised engraving of Admiral’s Cup Trophy. Water-resistance is 100 meters.

Retail is $7400.
