Corum – Bubble Swiss Edition

Corum offers you a close-up on the Bubble Swiss Edition watch.

And of course, the highlight of the watch has to be the domed sapphire crystal. The crystal itself is 8mm thick, and the overall thickness of this watch is a massive 18.5mm. The large domed crystal provides the watch substantial wrist presence, but more importantly, also creates distortion to give the watch a special appearance that alters and changes (distortion) determined by the angle which you have a look at the dial. Ironically, the crazily domed crystal additionally affects legibility marginally, but I’d assert that skeletonized dials aren’t the most legible to begin with. What’s more, Corum also intends to address the legibility problem with oversize leaf-shaped hands.The motion within is the calibre CO 082, which is based on Eterna’s grade 39. Eterna is also under the Citychamp group, and you will learn all about the calibre 39 in detail here. Corum does not disclose what kind of finishing and treatment has been achieved into the motion except that the bridges and plates have been color-treated. As I mentioned earlier, there are 3 colorways in total. The ref. L082/031612 comes from a stainless steel case, with white Super-Luminova hands, and a motion finished using blue plates and plates. The ref. L082/03165 comes in a black PVD stainless steel case, with green Super-Luminova palms, and a movement completed with matching green plates and bridges. And finally, we have the ref. L082/03166 that also comes at a black PVD stainless steel case, with purple Super-Luminova hands, and a movement finished with matching purple plates and bridges. All 3 colorways will include a blue coloured rubber strap with a pin buckle.Corum Bubble watches are fun and frequently employ a cartoonish design component, and the newest Bubble 47 Squelette watches we have here are among the wackiest yet. They are not for everybody, but if you have deep pockets and a sense of humor, they could be right for you. The brand new Corum Bubble 47 Squelette watches in bright colours are priced at $6,000, which is $2,300 less than as it was reintroduced in 2015.
