It is at the heart of this watch that the action unfolds. Equally complex and refined, the Bubble watch reveals all its inner workings via the dial, complete with endless structures.
Within its timeless and enigmatic sapphire glass bubble, the new Bubble Squelette presents a colourful and architectural extravaganza, encouraging our eyes to explore its myriad details.
There’s a lot of discussion on the topic of watches as artwork. Even though a watch needn’t be art to be of note, I am a firm believer in their potential to straddle the boundaries of purpose, form, and philosophy where appropriate. In the instance of those Corum Watches No 1358 Bubble watches, it seems to be a brand’s effort at developing a pristine objet d’art. It’s correct, the Corum Bubble watches are not love anything else that the brand makes (or similar to whatever anybody leaves, for that matter), but they are designed to be beautiful things, which is something that they have in common with different timepieces bearing the Corum logo.The devotion to the world in these pieces is staggeringly unwavering. In my view, this collection works only because it’s so unconcerned with anything but the most faithful realisation of its own unique concept. To take advantage of the re-release opportunity, Corum has partnered with famous cymbal manufacturer Paiste. Paiste are enlisted to make a exceptional dial to get your Corum Bubble Paiste unique edition watch. The dial of this Corum Bubble Paiste is a tiny cymbal created by Paiste in exactly the exact same way they’d earn a full size cymbal. I am quietly confident it would function as intended have been it removed from the housing and attached to some kit, but even if it’s just for show, it looks great.It works particularly well when put behind the magnifying lens of this Corum Bubble watches. The brass cymbal set within the PVD-coated black case is a great contrast. The Corum Bubble Paiste watch does not feature the Super-LumiNova of those Op-art watches, but it does adhere to a attractively muted bi-colour scheme of black and brass as a result.The Corum Bubble Op-art watches are powered by the CO082 automatic movement, which functions at 28,800vph, also has a power reserve of 42 hours. The Corum Bubble Paiste uses the CO110, which has exactly the same 25.6millimeter dimension and technical specifications as the CO082. The cases are made from PVD-coated stainless steel, and are water resistant to 100 metres. The price of the Corum Bubble Sphere2 (L082/02849) and the Corum Bubble Drop (L082/02848) is $3,750, whereas the Corum Bubble Paiste watch (L110/02871) will retail at a cost of $4,200.
Housed in a 47 mm stainless steel case with an Eterna Movement calibre 39 and a deep blue vulcanised rubber strap, the microstructures and hands on the dial of this new Bubble watch come in three colours: green, blue and purple.
