When the brand Corum created the Golden Bridge in 1980, the remarkable design of this timepiece all in transparency was certainly in line with the philosophy of a brand which wished from its creation to take place in the avant-garde of the watchmaking industry. The model reached a branch of the watchmaking industry where no other watchmaking manufacturers had chosen to venture: the one of the "baguette en ligne" movement.
Thirty years later, this movement remains a unique watchmaking expression. Composed of 140 components arranged in a parallelepiped rectangle of 33 mm in length, 3 mm in width and less than 5 mm in thickness, it offers a balance wheel with variable inertia, a barrel with slipping spring, a power reserve of 40 hours, a 4 hertz frequency ensuring reliability and precision, and hand-engraved bridges and plate made of fine gold.
To celebrate the 35 years of its movement, Corum unveils two new references. Today we are presenting the one dedicated to ladies: the Miss Golden Bridge Ceramic
The Miss Golden Bridge proposes a feminine expression of a design which has made his mark on the watchmaking history. It's in a whole new ceramic case that the coveted movement is staged. The technical challenge that confronts this material is high because the fineness of the ceramic case is against a large proportion of sapphire crystal. The slim black case just supervises the movement of gold, marking a break between colors and shapes. The faceted hands overlap with lightness the CO113 caliber. The middle, opened above, below but also on its sides, still plays many effects of transparency and allows the movement to be admired from all parts, through its sapphire glasses. However, it comes rethought in a very feminine spirit, in a thin, slender and curved tonneau shape. Its horns were removed so that the hand-stitched crocodile bracelet perfectly integrates the case, setting itself in its continuity, in the style of a cuff watch. The crown located at 6 o’clock emphasizes the refined character of this contemporary and elegant case.
