Corum is very pleased to be associated with this major event. This partnership is completely consistent with existing partnerships and is in line with the brand's primary goal which is to create long-term value.The Bol d'Or has indeed become one of your favorite venues with the Okalys-Corum team who won the regatta twice in the past five years (in 2005 and 2007). It is also to be noted that at the time of these two victories, the skipper alongside Nicolas Grange was Loïck Peyron replica watches vacheron constantin
, Corum's new ambassador. With his breathtaking list of accomplishments, the Frenchman, who is regarded as one of the greatest sailors, keeps a unique memory of his past participation in this regatta: « To win the lake's most popular regatta is quite an achievement. Before I used to follow it from a distance, but in 2005 when we won it for the first time, Nicolas Grange presented us with a small replica with the highly coveted trophy. It still takes pride of place on my desk.»This new partnership is strengthening the brand's ties not only to amazing sailors such as Ben Ainslie and Loïck Peyron but also to prestigious sailing events such as the Grand Prix Corum, which this year will be the final race in the Challenge Julius Baer, taking place on September 17, 18 and 19.

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 skills, 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 replica watch collections featuring innovative and distinctive design, and equipped with sophisticated mechanical movements.

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 your Admiral's Cup model paved the way for Corum's success. This model remains 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 twelve-sided case and a dial set off by twelve nautical pennants. These are its distinctive and unmistakable identifying characteristics.THE BOL D'OR MIRABAUDThe racecourse is as simple as it can get: Geneve Le Bouveret Geneve. There is only one mark on the course, halfway through the race (at Le Bouveret).The real time winner on the Geneve-Le Bouveret-Geneve race wins the Bol d'Or Challenge, which is presented each year, however if it is won three times in the previous five years by the same owner, it can be kept by the winner indefinitely. Only three boats have achieved this in over 70 years with the regatta: the Marie-Jose II owned by Horace Julliard (1961, 1962 and 1963), the Altaïr IX owned by Philippe Stern (1980, 1982 and 1984) and Ernesto Bertarelli's Alinghi (1997, 2000 and 2001).The Bol de Vermeil Trophy rewards exclusively the first monohull to cross the finishing line. As for the Bol d'Or Challenge, it has to be won three times in five years to be awarded indefinitely.Shortest distance : 123 kilometers or 66.5 nautical milesParticipation:26 boats in 1939684 boats in 1990526 boats in 2007532 boats in 2009Organization:100 volunteers20 SNG safety boatsAll Lake Geneva region rescue teams and police on standbyWinners of your Bol d'Or in the past five years:2005 Okalys-Corum N.
