DESCRIPTION

  • Corum establishes itself on the waters of Lake Leman

    CORUM & THE CHALLENGE JULIUS BAER 2010 - ACT II

    CORUM, a key player in the sailing world, now establishes itself in all the major competitions on the circuit. After announcing a double in 2009, partnering alongside team Okalys-CORUM and giving its name to the CORUM Grand Prix (one of the major races of the Challenge Julius Baer), the independent watchmaker is continuing its conquest in 2010, recruiting the talented and charismatic Loïck Peyron and announcing its partnership with the Bol d’Or Mirabaud in April. A prestigious calendar echoing the 50th anniversary of the iconic Admiral’s Cup collection. The waters of Lake Geneva are now under the CORUM flag that today celebrates the 2010 season opening of the Challenge Julius Baer by launching a
    Grand Prix Corum 2010 limited edition timepiece.

    In 2010, it is aboard team Okalys-CORUM at the Grand Prix Beau-Rivage Palace that CORUM will begin its Challenge Julius Baer. From May 8 to May 9, 2010, twelve D35’s will compete on the waters of Lake Geneva in the vicinity of Ouchy (Lausanne) down to the heart of the great lake to inaugurate a season that will honor the best crew.

    Last year, team Okalys-CORUM, helmed by Loïck Peyron, came close to victory by winning a silver medal in the final of the Challenge Julius Baer. The winds have always been unpredictable at this event, which is usually the final race in the sailing season. This year the AMC (Association of Multihull Competition) has decided to reschedule the 2010 Challenge Julius Baer. Located between the Ouchy waterfront and Lavaux vineyards, the Grand Prix Beau-Rivage Palace now opens the season, heralding a wind that should be more supportive. Indeed, the Lausanne region is less favorable to thermal currents and the start of the season should provide a more sustained wind.

    Having concluded the 2009 season tied in points with Team Alinghi, we can expect that team Okalys-CORUM will stand out from the start of the season as an exceptional challenger. As for the ambitions of the crew, team Okalys-Corum has always started its season with a team which, by its characteristics and cohesion quickly finds its benchmarks. Nicolas Grange, owner, helmsman and skipper of the boat is aiming therefore for a victory. Year after year, each step gained is crucial in view of the tight gap remaining between the competitors in the final.

    As an official partner of the CORUM Grand Prix and the Okalys-CORUM team, the brand is this year launching an official Grand Prix 2010 timepiece with the Okalys-Corum team colors. In line with the Admiral’s Cup collection, this new timepiece joins the iconic models of the brand. With a titanium case and a dodecagonal bezel in rubber, the Admiral’s Cup Chronograph 48 provides a dial decorated with monochromatic nautical pennants contrasted by the hour markers, a second hand and two counter’s hands (minute counter at 3 o’clock and small second counter at 9 o’clock) enhanced with the Okalys-CORUM team’s iconic orange color.

    The Admiral’s Cup Chronograph 48 Grand Prix 2010 Corum houses the caliber CO753, a mechanical chronograph movement with an automatic winding COSC certified chronometer, a reference in terms of reliability and accuracy. This CORUM Grand Prix 2010 watch is perfectly suited to the technical performance of the Decision 35 OKALYSCORUM. This model will be available at authorized Corum retailers by the end of June 2010 with a retail price of 10’200 Swiss Francs.

    Chief Executive Officer of Corum, Antonio Calce said:

    «Today Corum immerses itself in the sailing world by linking its name to sailors, its ambassadors and also to prestigious competitions. These great waters allow Corum to evolve in its element while evoking the historical connection of the brand to yachting. Today we participate in internationally renowned Swiss regattas, and this allows us to solidify the identity of the brand. These events anchored in Swiss territory; let us share with our markets and our customers our passion for watches and sailing. These moments are privileged ones that reinforce ties and unite teams. Sport competition as a backdrop, exploits, victories as goals, a new chapter will be written.

    Nicolas Grange, owner, skipper and helmsman of the Okalys-CORUM added:

    «After an outstanding 2009 season with Okalys-Corum finishing on the podium at every race - which allowed us to end the season tied on points with Alinghi, winner of the Challenge Julius Baer 2009 – the 2010 season promises to be another exciting year with very high-end participation, combining the best multihull sailors in the world, while the best of them are now participating in our world championship. My partnership with CORUM allows us to continue to place Okalys-CORUM on top of the ranking and our goal is clearly to finish on the podium of the Challenge Julius Baer once again and to win the Bol d’Or for the 3rd time, as this race has become THE Regatta everyone wants to put their name on, even after having already won it twice! In addition, Corum’s involvement in organizing this event will only increase our motivation to win this regatta which is usually successful for us as we have been on the podium for the last 5 years. Sailing is often the venue of great sporting and human stories and I am very proud to have helped Corum and Loïck Peyron to come close. With Loïck Peyron and Ben Ainslie on board, CORUM can be pride itself on having 2 exceptional ambassadors”!

    To those passionate about fine watches and to sailing lovers, see you at Leman Lake in Ouchy from May 8 to May 9, 2010, to watch the tournament of the Challenge Julius Baer.

    Technical Information and Data

    I. Corum

    Over the past few years, CORUM has undergone a complete transformation that has enabled it to achieve a perfect match between the product and the demands for quality and creativity that are the very foundations of its credibility. Its firmly upscale move is a logical result of the brand’s efforts to recapture its historical standing while significantly reinforcing its horological substance. CORUM’s substantial investments have led to the integration of watchmaking professions, the development of production tools, the enhancement of human resources and the promotion of staff training. The result is a brand once again entirely in tune with its genetic heritage.

    Positioned as an exclusive brand, CORUM offers high-quality watch collections featuring an innovative and distinctive design, and equipped with sophisticated mechanical movements. Its 150 current references, spread between four key pillars – Admiral’s Cup, Romvlvs, Golden Bridge and Artisans – enjoy a legitimacy rooted in the brand history. The full set of collections comprises models at prices ranging from 5,000 to 1 million Swiss francs and giving pride of place to precious metals and horological complications.
     
    In 1960, the first interpretation of the Admiral’s Cup model paved the way for CORUM’s success. This model celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2010 and remains emblematic thanks to its history, which is inextricably bound up with major sailing competitions and prestigious sailors, as well as for its inimitable esthetic based on a twelvesided case and a dial set off by twelve nautical pennants. These are its distinctive and unmistakable identifying characteristics.

    Admiral’s Cup Chronograph 48 Grand Prix CORUM – Official Watch of the 2010 Corum Grand Prix

    The Admiral’s Cup Chronograph 48 Grand Prix CORUM houses caliber CO753, an automatic-winding mechanical chronograph movement chronometer-certified by the COSC, the ultimate sign of reliability and accuracy. This CO753 caliber operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and has a 42-hour power reserve. The 12- sided case is made of titanium, chosen for its lightness and hardness. Its imposing 48-mm diameter speaks of its power. It has locking pushbuttons thanks to an exclusive lockout system. These buttons frame a crown made of the same material and engraved with the CORUM key. A black rubber bezel surrounding the convex sapphire crystal anti-reflective coating protects the upper part of the dial, while the screw-down case back, also of black titanium, is decorated with the Grand Prix CORUM trophy. The Côtes de Genève finish of the dial enhances the model’s distinctiveness. Contrasting with the grey dial, the minute numerals are coated with an orange luminescent material and the chevrons are covered with the same material in black. The dial is topped by the words CORUM ADMIRAL’S CUP at 12 o’clock and Limited Edition written in orange at 6 o’clock.

    The hour and minute hands are faceted and shine in the darkness thanks to an identical treatment. Assertively placed at the center of the dial, with the CORUM key as a counterweight, the chronograph second-hand is covered with orange lacquer, reminding the corporate colors of the OKALYS-CORUM team. The minute counter hand at 3 o’clock and the small second-hand at 9 o’clock are also coated with orange luminescent material. The date is displayed in a window at 3 o’clock. Representing the signature features of the collection, the 12 nautical pennants highlighting the hours are transferred on the outer dial ring. Their monochrome appearance is in harmony with the aesthetic of the watch and their arrangement creates a perfect sense of equilibrium. The winding rotor is engraved with the brand’s name, a reminder that CORUM cares as much about the technical quality of its timepieces as about their esthetics. The strap is made of leather with a textile appearance and outlined with orange hand stiching and features a tongue buckle engraved with the brand name. The Admiral’s Cup Chronograph 48 Grand Prix Corum is guaranteed water resistant to 300 meters. This timepiece specially dedicated to the regatta will be available in a limited edition of 25 pieces.

    The legendary Admiral’s Cup lives on in this sports chronograph, built for extremes, which embodies the brand’s athletic side.

    Suggested retail price, all taxes included: 10’200 CHF / 7’350 EURO / 8’770 US$ Available end of June 2010 at authorized points of sale.

    II. The Decision 35 – Okalys-Corum – Lake Catamaran

    The Decision 35 is a 35-foot (10.81 meter) catamaran made entirely of composite materials. It has three hulls, of which two are floats and the third, in the center, supports the foot of the mast. This innovative structure is lighter and offers a higher level of performance and better aerodynamics. With a sail area of over 160 square meters (close-hauled), these watercraft are well suited to Lake Geneva’s demanding sailing conditions and can reach a speed of 30 knots (about 50 km/h).

    A brief history of the OKALY-CORUM team

    When Nicolas Grange began sailing twenty years ago, he raced on the Formula 40, one of the great Lake Geneva trimarans that often won the Bol d’Or Mirabaud. Having sailed with Ernesto Bertarelli for a number of years, the Decision 35’s two owners were able to keep up both their love of competition and their ranking among the top sailors on the circuit. In 2003, a new chapter of this story was written. Extreme conditions during the 2003 Bol d’Or Mirabaud decimated the multihull fleet on Lake Geneva, leading many owner/skippers of the time, including Ernesto Bertarelli, Philippe Cardis, Gérard Gautier and Nicolas Grange, to create the world’s first fleet of large multihulls. Thus the Decision 35 project was born. This dream became a reality in 2004, when a spectacular new multi-colored fleet arrived on Lake Geneva and quickly attracted the best sailors on the planet.

    Putting his experience to work, Nicolas Grange built up a young, outstanding and motivated crew that could succeed in combining performance with enjoyment. Maintaining friendly ties with Loïck Peyron, he also called on his services and his talent and experience with multihulls to round out the team. His vision brought success: to date, the Okalys-Corum team is the most decorated Decision 35 on the circuit. Its laurels include two consecutive victories in the Julius Baer Challenge and two wins at the Bol d’Or Mirabaud; three at the Geneva Grand Prix*, four in the Geneva-Rolle-Geneva and one at the Beau-Rivage Palace Grand Prix; and many other triumphs on the Decision 35 circuit.

    The pioneering Okalys-Corum was the first boat to dominate the Julius Baer Challenge after its victories in 2005 and 2006, a feat later matched by Alinghi, which also won the Julius Baer Challenge after its wins in 2007 and 2008. The taste of victory is all the sweeter as for the past four years Okalys-Corum has been competing against teams made up entirely of professionals (Foncia and Alinghi), whereas its own crew consists of amateurs (with the exception of Loïck Peyron) who participate in an average of five regattas out of eight during the season. Last year, the Okalys-Corum team even finished the season with the same number of points than the Alinghi team. Finally only the number of second places during the season decided the winner between both competitors and offered the first place of the championship to Ernesto Bertarelli’s team. The new season 2010 will be as challenged as last year and we are looking forward to see the Lake Leman’s Formulas 1 competing against each other.
