Corum Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Colette – Thomas Erber
— Corum joins the famous Parisian concept store Colette and the artist Thomas Erber and creates a Limited Edition of 10 timepieces.
During one week, the fake Rolex watches brand takes up residence at 213 rue Saint-Honoré, in Paris, with a special showcase, representing a fairytale-like chalet in an abstract form.
Using a completely organic approach, the structure draws its inspiration from the “Style Sapin”; a decorative art form from the La Chaux-de-Fonds of the early twentieth century, and is made of a natural larch wood and steel structure constructed with the legendary codes of the Corum Admiral’s Cup collection.
Thomas Erber is working on developing his “cabinet de curiositiés”, exported all around the world and in which he presents the new trends and designers of the moment. In a contemporary approach, Thomas Erber explores all areas of creation; from fashion to fine replica Breitling watchmaking, through design, music, but also the travel.
For the Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Colette – Thomas Erber, Corum has revisited the codes of its iconic timepiece and reinterpreted it in metallic shades. Its twelve-sided case from 42 mm, in brushed steel, houses an automatic movement caliber CO 395. The hour markers are shown traditionally by the nautical pennants while the matt dial displays the minute indicators which are treated in Superluminova for better reading. A small seconds counter with the personalized initials of Thomas Erber positioned at 6 o’clock, hosts an indigo blue luminescent hand – the Colette store’s color.
This Limited Edition of 10 timepieces is exclusively distributed at Colette.
