You will need to have been very, very good for Santa to bring you one, but Corum is hoping that the snow-themed presentation of its latest Golden Bridge will make it a winner this Christmas.
The snow is, of course, made up of diamonds on both men’s and women’s models. The snow setting involves arranging a random number of diamonds of all sizes in such a way that together, they cover up the entirety of the metal. Each diamond is not only different from all others, they must still be set as close to one another as possible, interlocking to the micron so the edges are almost touching.
The final composition is similar to a fresco or an expressionist painting, featuring many diamonds set individually and creating, together, the coherent image of a whole.
“Ultimately, each snow-set Golden Bridge is completely unique,” explains Jerome Biard, CEO of Corum. “They are at once true fine watchmaking and fine jewellery pieces, and we will never make two which are identical. This covering reflects Corum’s philosophy of thinking outside the box, of breaking with convention, to offer our collectors a caliber that is completely unique, our baguette movement, and a highly exclusive setting that had almost never been used in Corum’s history.”
