Corum Golden Bridge Dragon & Phoenix Mechanical Hand-wound Watch

Corum Golden Bridge Dragon & Phoenix Mechanical Hand-wound Watch
Corum has let its creativity run free and orchestrated an encounter between two of the most fascinating creatures in Chinese mythology: the dragon, symbol of life and strength, and the phoenix, bearer of good omens.

Corum Golden Bridge Dragon & Phoenix Mechanical Hand-wound Watch

Joined together by the legendary baguette movement that is exclusive to Corum, these mythical beasts bring the promise of prosperity. Hand-sculpted from gold, they come to life through meticulous engraving; a single piece takes three weeks to complete. This Golden Bridge Dragon & Phoenix is a lesson in mechanical virtuosity too, as revealed by the linear architecture of the CO113 calibre whose vertical axis is prolonged by the crown at 6 o'clock to further highlight its exceptional construction. The movement is enclosed inside the transparency of a tonneau case with crystal, back and sides all in sapphire, so that the eye can embrace both dragon and phoenix in their three dimensions.
