These timepieces are as elaborate as they are varied, characterised by nautical flags and offering a rich colour palette of dark blue, light blue, white and black. The dials and straps are also interchangeable for mixing and matching.
Continuing its innovative range oriented around variety this season, Corum is offering the maritime collection in three different case widths: 32mm, 38mm and 42 mm.
The hour-minute automatic 32mm models, in steel or two-tone steel and pink gold, exist with a dark blue, light blue and white mother-of-pearl dial. The bracelets are either in stainless steel and rose gold, or in vulcanized rubber matching the dial.
Back in 2016, we had a chance to go hands-on with all the Corum Golden Bridge Round that was a departure from past Golden Bridge watches by employing a round event rather than the angular cases the collection had been known for. For Baselworld 2017, designer Dino Modolo helps return the Golden Bridge to its angular roots with the Corum Golden Bridge Rectangle. Since its first release in 1980, the Corum Golden Bridge has seen over a few variants, and this version keeps the collection’s trademark feature – a movement that shows the entire transfer of energy from its own spring barrel in 6 o’clock into the escapement at 12 o’clock. The caliber CO113 is exactly what Corum refers to as an “in-line baguette” movement, which has all its components stacked up in a column-like shape. Like the numerals, the bridge structure that supports the motion is constructed from 18k gold and decorated with a variety of engravings together with the brand name. This exceptional movement design permits the wearer to look at every part in motion as power is moved from one end of this case to the other. The comprehensive execution of the 18-karat golden Roman numeral constructions and rivets that encircle the motion are extremely cool to check at it – it feels like something King Midas would approve of.The caliber CO113 is exactly what Corum describes as a “in-line baguette” motion, which has all of its parts piled up in a column-like shape.
