Corum Golden Bridge Hand-wound Watch

Corum Golden Bridge Hand-wound Watch

Developed in 1980, Corum's baguette movement quickly made its mark as an icon in contemporary watchmaking thanks to its unconventional vertical construction. Corum masterfully rose to the challenge of transmitting energy in this linear movement. Staged inside a red gold case framed by four sapphire crystals for the front, back and sides, it invites an all-encompassing immersion into the magic of these linear mechanics, at the heart of a captivating play on transparency. The red gold upper bridge is adorned with hand engravings, as is the mainplate, thus embodying the finest watchmaking traditions.
