Corum – Bubble America First & Bubble Brexit
The United States celebrates Independence Day and Corum is giving prominence to the colours associated with the land of Uncle Sam. True to the grandeur and power of the country, the watch brand has chosen to immortalise not one, but two nations on its dial.
Big Bubble in titanium, limited edition of 87 pieces.
This is how the United Kingdom’s tricolour flag also came to be represented on the dial, suitably enlarged thanks to the legendary magnifying effect of the Bubble’s sapphire crystal.
Corum unveils two Big Bubble with a 52 mm case, sporting proudly the Stars & Stripes of the American flag. Four other Bubblée 47 models complement the collection.
In keeping with the bubble style unique to Corum, the Swiss watchmaker proudly exhibits the colours of both nations, united in their exceptional power.
Bubble 47 in stainless steel, limited edition of 87 pieces.
The Corum Golden Bridge Rectangle case measures 29.5mm wide by 42.2mm tall and a mere 9.3mm thick. The comprehensive execution of this 18-karat golden Roman numeral constructions and rivets that surround the movement are extremely cool to look at it – it seems like something King Midas would approve of.The rhodium-plated, baton-shaped hands offer a wonderful contrast with the gold constructions, and to keep things simple, the movement simply signifies the time with minutes and hours. There’s a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective cure over the skeletonized dial along with a screw-in sapphire case-back which helps maintain the watch’s water-resistance of 30 meters. The crown itself is a distinctive touch and something I will love for the sake of symmetry and balance. Due to this movement’s orientation, it is located at 6 o’clock and features deep grooves for easy operation.The Corum Golden Bridge Rectangle is a wristwatch that will be catering to a very specific pair of watch enthusiasts, to say the least. When there are surely a great deal of alternatives in the way of timepieces in its budget, the Corum Golden Bridge Rectangle watch offers something unique with its open dial and linear motion screen. In a way, it shows the brand’s commitment to continuing the Golden Bridge tradition whilst exercising restraint that is both tasteful and progressive. The very first Corum Bubble watch came out in 2000, but for whatever reason, it was eventually discontinued. And today, it is one of the main collections, so much so that they made a decision to make a exceptional piece working with the iconic Bubble layout. This really is the Corum Bubble 47 Flying Tourbillon watch, featuring not just a tourbillon but a menacing skull to get a dial.
