Corum celebrates coming of age of the iconic Bubble watch

0

It was during the Basel watch exhibition in the year 2000 that Corum first unveiled its now-legendary Bubble watch.

With an oversized case and huge domed crystal, the Bubble was the brainchild of the equally-legendary Severin Wunderman, then owner of the brand.

That first Bubble wowed the world and the timepiece quickly developed a cult-like following.

Now, to honor both the coming of age of this iconic timepiece, and the dynamic man behind it, Corum has released a limited-edition watch with the same signature elements that made the Bubble famous, but with a contemporary and creative touch.

The Bubble Skull X-Ray pays tribute to the line’s roots with a highly stylized yet realistic looking skull taking center stage on the dial.

While the huge domed sapphire crystal slightly distorts the image, it is fully visible in the dark because it is totally luminescent: disruptive in day and at night. In fact, when the lights go out, the skull glows green for an eerie yet provocative appeal.

Bringing the luminescence full circle, Corum adds fluorescent green stitching to the synthetic alligator-like strap that is lined with rubber.

The watch is powered by an automatic movement (CO 082) that beats at 4Hz and offers 42 hours of power reserve. It is crafted in stainless steel with a black PVD treatment over it and boasts a sapphire case back for viewing of the movement.

Both the domed front crystal and the back crystal are coated with an anti-reflective treatment.

Water resistant to 100 meters, the 47mmm case offers hours, minutes and seconds and is being created in a limited edition of just 666 pieces.

It will retail for 4,000 CHF.
