Corum And Banque Populaire Work Together

Corum has joined forces with Banque Populaire-the main fleet of the Sailing World – to sponsor the most watched sailing challenge: the Jules Verne Trophy .
As a partner and official timepiece of this famous global competition, Corum has specially launched a dedicated watch. Against this background, the brand naturally chose a watch from the Admiral’s Cup collection-a collection that has been praised by sailing enthusiasts since its introduction in 1960-this special edition watch is equipped with a chronograph function.

The Admiral’s Cup Seafender 48 Chrono Centro watch has the words ‘Trophée Jules Verne 2012’ on the surface, and the case back even depicts the line of the game.

If the team sets a new record during this sailing event, Corum will give this special edition watch to each team member of Maxi Trimaran Banque Populaire V, and each watch will be engraved with the team member’s personal name. Therefore, the 14 players who participated in the global competition not only fought to take away the trophy, but also had the chance to win a Corum watch.
Paying close attention to the weather forecast for the past few days, Loïck Peyron and his team decided to take advantage of the seaside area that now extends between Ireland and Portugal to seize the opportunity to sail the sea. They have been waiting for this opportunity for the past month.
