Corum has unveiled two limited editions of its Golden Bridge, which it says combines the aesthetic of the baguette movement with that of suspension bridges.
The firm says that the Golden Bridge Round 43 Art Deco continues its vision of combining “art and architecture, technique and aesthetic, creativity and respect for Fine Watchmaking traditions.”
As with a number of other Corum timepieces, the watch features a baguette movement, which the brands says “dominates in all its length, at the center of the piece, vertically.”
Its gold bridges and mainplate are engraved with the brand name and finish at 6 o’clock by the crown, used for time setting and the winding of the 40-hour power reserve.
Four symmetrical series of cables extend across both sides of the movement, which continue the architectural inspiration of the aptly named “Bridge” collection.
16 cables in brass are drawn from the titanium 43-mm case and settle higher up, underneath the flange.
According to Corum, the CO113 calibre and these 16 cables succeed in combining the light and suspended expression of movement with the power and resistance of the cabled structure.
The brand said: “Both delicate and strong, robust and elegant, the tension of the Golden Bridge Round 43 Art Deco creation invokes harmony, a piece where aesthetic equilibrium is expressed by perfect geometry.”
Available in two series strictly limited to 188 pieces, the Golden Bridge Round 43 Art Deco is available in a rhodium or gold finish (movement, cables, crown) on a black vulcanized rubber bracelet.
