Heritage Sublissima

Housed in a 38 mm diameter case available in white gold or pink gold, The Heritage Sublissima watch is made for women with an elegant and delicate vision of modernity.

There’s a lot of debate on the topic of watches as artwork. Although a watch should not be art to be of note, I am a firm believer in their own capability to straddle the bounds of purpose, form, and doctrine where appropriate. In the case of those Corum Bubble watches, it seems to be a brand’s effort at developing a pure objet d’art. It’s true, the Corum Bubble watches aren’t love anything else the brand makes (or much like whatever anyone leaves, for that matter), however they’re intended to be beautiful items, which is something that they have in common with different timepieces bearing the Corum logo.The devotion to the world in these bits is staggeringly unwavering. In my view, this collection works only because it is so unconcerned with anything but the most faithful realisation of its own distinct concept. To make the most of the re-release opportunity, Corum has partnered with famous cymbal manufacturer Paiste. Paiste are enlisted to make a exceptional dial to get the Corum Bubble Paiste special edition watch. The dial of this Corum Bubble Paiste is a very small cymbal created by Paiste in precisely the same manner they’d earn a full-size cymbal. I’m quietly confident it would function as supposed were it removed from the housing and attached to some kit, but even if it’s just for display, it seems great.It works particularly well when set behind the magnifying lens of the Corum Bubble watches. The mottled surface of the cymbal jumps out at you — an ever-present reminder of their crafts and skills that have gone into the creation of the especially out-there wristwatch. The brass cymbal set within the PVD-coated black case is a good contrast. The Corum Bubble Paiste watch does not boast the Super-LumiNova of those Op-art watches, but it will adhere to an attractively muted bi-colour plot of black and brass as a result.The Corum Bubble Op-art watches are powered by the CO082 automated movement, which functions in 28,800vph, and has a power reserve of 42 hours. The Corum Bubble Paiste employs the CO110, with exactly the exact same 25.6mm measurement and technical specifications as the CO082. The cases are made of PVD-coated stainless steel, and are water resistant to 100 metres.
Sourced from the ocean depths, the white mother-of-pearl dial is protected by an antireflective sapphire crystal and ringed with a corolla of 25 diamonds (~6.16 ct).
The automatic movement offers an hour and minute function with gold hands and a 50-hour power reserve.

The precious watches are paired with a black alligator-skin strap with a gold pin buckle, which gives character to the timepiece’s combination of sensitivity and sensuality.
