Vintage Corum Admirals Cup AC-One 45 Chronograph

I am afflicted with many diseases. Among these afflictions are collections of classic cars, vintage aircraft, horses, dogs, tractors and lots of collectible junk that often defies categorization.

Amongst my many passions is perhaps the most time-consuming and expensive of all:  classic wooden boats

There is something about a wooden boat that is shared by no other machine or conveyance that we produce. It is almost as if they have a soul. Perhaps it is because we have been making boats for ten thousand years that they stir something deep within us, or maybe it is our desire to return to the ocean.

I shook the wooden boat habit just as I was acquiring the vintage airplane habit, so no quarter gained, but while I was busily tromping about the Great Lakes in 80 year old masterpieces I would have killed to have had a watch like this Corum. I love to match my accessories to my passion, it seems, and you can’t get a whole lot more boat-y than the Corum Admirals Cup.

This is a significantly striking watch. I noticed that in a watch box full of Omegas and Rolexes, the eye will always immediately fix on the Corum. Hope the designer was chuffed with himself for that accomplishment.

Now I don’t have a boat, so I may as well sell the Corum. It comes with all its documents and a wooden box large enough to be its own boat.
