Corum Golden Bridge Rectangle Mechanical Hand-wound Watch
The latest addition to Corum’s distinctive and iconic Golden Bridge collection is a refined creation featuring a rectangular case. The renowned designer Dino Modolo has perfected its superbly engraved horizontal movement with an incredibly intricate geometric design.

Corum Golden Bridge Rectangle Mechanical Hand-wound Watch

The 18k gold structures, representing six Roman numerals, encircle the fully visible calibre, inspiring a harmonious feeling of nostalgia amongst the forms, rivets and materials, which subtly evoke the architecture of a bridge. Inspired by Art Deco aesthetics, the Golden Bridge Rectangle is the epitome of timeless and understated elegance. Nevertheless, nothing distracts from its exceptional movement: the eye is drawn along the path of the CO113 calibre as it transfers energy from the barrel spring at 6 o’clock to the escapement at 12.
