In comparison to the gold model, the Silver Eagle variant uses blue varnished hands and includes a blue alligator strap, fitted with a stainless steel tongue buckle. Lacking the interior bezel of the golden model, this model includes a floating Corum logo transferred under the sapphire crystal close 12 o’clock. A 0.17 carat round blue sapphire set into the crown illuminates the blued hands and strap plus provides this model a younger look.The final model in this group is possibly the most interesting, a Corum Coin Special Edition mention C082/03152, which uses a 925 silver coin out of Israel. This coin has been minted in 1973 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Israeli Declaration of Independence, which has been declared by the first Prime Minister of Israel David Ben-Gurion on May 14, 1948. The Corum emblem is transferred under the sapphire crystal at 9 o’clock on this model, and also a 0.17 carat diamond is set within the crown. The watch features black varnished baton hands and a fitting alligator strap for a more sober aesthetic.Powering the three Corum Heritage Artisans Coin Watches is your CO 082 caliber, which is a Corum-decorated Soprod A10 motion. This is an automatic motion with bi-directional winding, hacking moments, hand-winding capacity, and an Incabloc shock protection program. It oscillates at a modern 28,800vph or 4Hz, features 21 rubies, and supplies a 42-hour power reserve. This really is a higher-end motion, designed as a replacement for the ETA 2892 and sharing many similarities with the Seiko 4L family of calibers. The Soprod A10 is also quite slender at 3.6mm, that leads to the general thinness and wearability of these watches.The Corum Heritage Artisans Coin Watches For 2017 offer three different styles for different clientele, from the luxurious Gold Double Eagle into the young Silver Eagle along with the rather austere Israel Special Edition. These watches should attract collectors of valuable coins, as well as those who wish to display patriotism in their respective states. Lovers of both high-purity gold and sterling silver also have much to admire here, because these substances are otherwise very uncommon in the watch market. The Gold US Coin version ref. C082/03167 is the most costly of the trio, being offered for a cost of $23,000. Both the silver models (ref C082/03059 and ref C082/03152) are available for the price of $13,800 each.
