Swiss watchmaker Corum recently unveiled the resurrection of one of the most iconic timepieces in the world, namely the Golden Bridge. Due to its unique and absolutely stunning vertical-axis mechanism design, the Golden Bridge took the entire world by surprise when it was released in 1980. 33 years later, this stunning masterpiece receives a complete makeover, which came in the form of a gorgeous and elegant black ceramic case.
When you see this watch for the first time, your eyes immediately lock onto its stunning hand-wound CO 113 movement, which is lined up with a beautiful crown positioned at 6 o’clock. The ceramic case that houses this intricate symphony of components was manually applied in a 320-degree furnace before it hardened and enveloped the sublime sapphire crystals that protect the watch from the elements.
As for the movement itself, we can tell you that it flaunts a power reserve of 40 hours and that it is supported by two visible pillars placed on its bridges. The upper bridge was made using lavish 18-carat red gold and flaunts the Corum signature for a plus of exclusivity and originality.
Corum is a company based in La Chaux-de-Fonds – a region well known for its natural beauty and lush, green forests. The Golden Bridge Black Ceramic Case timepiece honors its origins by showcasing a series of fern-based motifs that encircle its Corum signature, while its golden mainplate also boasts a series of graceful engravings. For a touch of extra opulence, the watch comes with a black PVD-coated pin buckle that fastens the black alligator leather strap onto the wearer’s wrist.
