Corum is a brand that has always enjoyed the company of eminent personalities. The Admiral’s Cup is perhaps one of the most popular series. Who can forget the movie stunt scene where Jackie Chan is holding on for dear life, to a pillar, and all we could focus on was the steel-solid Corum’s Admiral Cup timepiece on his wrist.
Likewise, with Jonny Depp, who picked a Corum Bubble Privateer for his wrist, while working on the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Watches like the Bubbles Collection, go to show that although Corum is a luxury watch brand, they can cater to the nuances of what is trending and in a classy way.
The Golden Bridges
Corum is respected in the market to be one of the very few brands that can come out with a limited collection and expect it to be sold out completely. Today we discuss two timepieces that were announced this week and limited editions as well.
The two Golden Bridge Round 43 Art Deco models come in rhodium-plated finish and gold-plated finished – movement, cables, crown are included in this. The Bridge Series are all about the suspension cables and these two watches are no different.
There are four symmetrical series of cables, totalling to 16, that extend across both sides of the movement. They hold no engineering proposition but are merely there to add to the art deco aesthetics and give no structural support.
Under the Hood and More
Crafted in two versions, both the new Golden Bridge timepieces come with a 43 mm grade 5 titanium case that is coated in black DLC. The baguette-shaped in-house caliber CO 113 movement is suspended vertically in the center of the case.
The watch sports a sapphire crystal dial and is sandwiched between Sapphire crystal on both ends. Details include black baton shaped hands, 40-hours power reserve and 30 meters water-resistant. Limited to 188 pieces, pick it up for $23,800.
