ADRIFT ON THE SPARKLING SEA

India Today - - LASTLOOK -

Time marks the pas­sage of a com­mod­ity that’s tran­sient and so very pre­cious, yet if you have the right time­piece to take you through the tran­si­tion, it can be a re­mark­able jour­ney. As watches go, the Ad­mi­ral’s Cup Leg­end 38 Chrono­graph is el­e­gant, sporty, yet oh so fem­i­nine. Let’s get its de­light­ful fea­tures out of the way first. Its hours and min­utes are marked off on the shim­mer­ing white mother- of- pearl dial, en­hanced by the sparkle of 11 di­a­mond hour- mark­ers ( to­talling ap­prox. 0.22 carats). Loyal to the orig­i­nal de­sign codes of the Ad­mi­ral’s Cup, the 12- sided 38mm case. The white coun­ters fea­tur­ing a snailed cen­tral mo­tif oc­cupy the lower part of the dial: small sec­onds at 3 o’clock, 30- minute counter at 9 o’clock and 12- hour counter at 6 o’clock. The chrono­graph sec­onds hand bear­ing the dis­tinc­tive Co­rum key is com­ple­mented by white Su­per­lu­mi­nova- coated open­worked faceted hour and minute hands. If the tech­ni­cal jar­gon gets too much for you skip to the part where it is all about bur­nished red gold, shim­mer­ing di­a­monds and lux­ury. How’s that for a time­piece that el­e­vates time telling to a whole new level? Price on re­quest
