Since both watches and coins are usually thought of “collectibles,” it creates a certain amount of sense to combine the two and lure aficionados of both hobbies. Or so the train of thought went back in 1964 for La Chaux-de-Fonds-based maison Corum, when they produced their first Coin watch depending on the American $20 Double Eagle. The version was a massive victory for Corum, who’ve released numerous models over the years including the 50th Anniversary Edition we covered previously. This season, a new trio of Corum Watches Online Store Heritage Artisans Coin Watches have already been announced, making use of American coins as well as a much rarer (for the brand) commemorative coin from Israel.Corum were founded in 1955, which makes them relatively young by Swiss watchmaker standards. Their early success was characterized by golden watches at the Art Nouveau design, like the Chinese design and Admiral models. The first Coin watch combined the brand’s styling with an ultra-thin movement fitted within a sliced-in-two American gold coin, creating a unique dress watch using both exclusivity and patriotic appeal.As a obviously patriotic emblem, Corum points out that several American presidents have worn Corum Heritage Artisans Coin Watches, including George Bush Sr, Ronald Reagan, Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton, in addition to artists like Andy Warhol.Three new versions of the Corum Heritage Artisans Coin Watch have been released this past year. We are going to start by taking a look at the golden model, mention C082/03167, which includes an American Liberty Head Double Eagle 20 dollar gold coin. This coin depicts a heraldic eagle with shield on the watch face and the head of the Statue of Liberty on the caseback.
