Corum – Bubble Spookies
Ah, to be a collector. These days, there are some of things you can get yourself into thanks to the wide reach of the Internet. Want to start collecting golden-age comics? Begin your search online. Think about something more esoteric like, state, vintage safety razors. Again, head online. Obviously, the more recognized things, such as stamps and coins, have places on the web it is possible to visit. If you want to get started blending these ranges, however, then it will get a little more tricky. For 50 years now, coin collectors have had a very prominent watch that they might aspire to accumulate from Corum. Since we’re currently at that golden anniversary, it ought to not be a surprise that we finally have the Corum Coin Watch 50th Anniversary model.Now, we’ll need to provide the brand a little bit of latitude when it comes to celebrating this anniversary — the very initial Corum Coin Watch premiered in 1964, and of course, we’re now in 2015 (51 years later). How to get around that little detail? Well, by using coins created in 2014. These were seemingly sorted through and chosen as being prime examples of what these coins are (so, no, no “misprint” dials to be had here), and haven’t been in circulation. And, other than the hole drilled in them to get the fundamental arbor via, there are no visible modifications to the coin.Provided the sapphire crystal up top stays in 1 piece, it’s likely a coin that will never find any other alterations or wear. As is suitable for your Corum Coin Watch, the faces of the case (36mm for the gold, 43mm for the silver) include a coin border — perhaps the best use of the particular finishing suggestion. To my eyes, the bezel surrounding the crystal also has the expression of a coin, which provides the look, subsequently, of simply having a coin having some lugs attached that is sitting on your wrist.I myself’ve never been a coin collector (though, I believe I’ve some birth-year coins kicking around), so I am definitely not the goal for the 50th Anniversary version of this Corum Coin Watch. That said, when it comes to a watch with an overall theme, this really is about the easiest, cohesive example I could maintain up. If you would like to pick up one for yourself (or your great-great grandson, according to the marketing materials), then you can either buy one separately, or get yourself a set — as a good coin collector does, I guess. There’ll be 100 of every made accessible, together with the 22kt gold version going for $22,400, as well as the .925 silver commanding a cost of $12,100. If you find yourself collecting both watches and coins, well then, I cannot think of a better view to showcase both passions in precisely the exact same time.
First introduced in the year 2000, the Bubble is now Corum’s runaway bestseller. This iconic watch made its surprising return last year. Corum Watch Harga continues to celebrate its emblematic timepiece by introducing Bubble Spookies three new limited edition models for the spookiest night of 2016: the Bubble Skull, limited to 88 pieces, The Bubble Pirate limited to 188 pieces and the Bubble Voodoo, limited to just 38 pieces.
It is really about time Corum Watch Harga returned the most popular Bubble opinion – a timepiece collection that initially came out in the year 2000 and served a significant contemporary role in the new history. Eventually, the Corum Bubble watch collection was stopped, probably because Corum started to go a bit nuts with some silly limited edition versions – which, looking back now, are pretty damn cool. You may recall back in 2008, when aBlogtoWatch featured a collection of limited edition Corum Bubble watches that were extremely fitting for Halloween. For Baselworld 2015, the Corum Bubble is back, and that I finally have reason to pay attention to the newest again.I recall a few years back meeting with Corum at Baselworld and inquiring about the Bubble and if we could see one again. Someone sneered at me remarking that “we don’t think that is right for the new anymore. We have moved beyond that.” “Ok…” is all I could react with, and we proceeded on to seeing more new variants of this Admirals Cup and Golden Bridge collection. I have always liked Corum, but within the past couple of decades, the enjoyable side of this brand appeared to be diminishing and being substituted with a lot of ill-conceived high-end watches which did nothing to serve the image of the brand. I believe that the previous time I wrote about Corum was back in January of 2014 once I had a less than optimistic view of this Corum Chronograph Tourbillon 47 Seafender. Afterwards, the brand chose to adhere double tourbillons into an Admiral’s Cup watch, and with their brand new ownership by China Haidian Holdings, I more or less assumed the brand’s allure for watch enthusiasts was (at least briefly) over. So you can imagine my delighted surprise to hear that the Corum Bubble is back.Not only back, but back with decent rates. Actually, aside from some minor changes and a case size that’s been increased to 47mm wide from 45mm wide, the 2015 Corum Bubble is quite much like the way it was when Corum chose to discontinue it. Also, even though the case is larger (and seems really big) that the Corum Bubble wears smaller than it is with snub lugs and a case that wraps around your wrist well. With that said, I am pretty sure that you can imagine that with a name like the “Bubble,” this opinion is thick. The sapphire crystal alone is 8mm thick and the total Corum Bubble watch is 18.8mm thick – but in a trendy manner.
These references are presented in a 47 mm stainless steel with black PVD or stainless steel case topped by a massive, domed sapphire crystal. The new Corum Watches Rate Bubble Spookies are powered by the automatic movement CO 082, which beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, and provides 42 hours of power reserve. The watches are mounted on rubber straps, and sealed against the ingress of water to 100 meters of depth.
