The two rectangular limited edition replica watches pay tribute to the 1980’s unmistakable Golden Bridge.
Corum’s widely recognized rectangular watch is named after the golden bridge that fixes the rectangular movement, and has been reinterpreted in many ways during 40 years of success. In 2016, Corum released the first round case version. Just last year we reported on the Corum Golden Bridge Round 43 Art Deco watch, which was inspired by some of the world’s largest suspension bridges and used 43 mm black DLC to process the titanium watch. shell. The year before, Corum and musician Joachim Horsley developed a limited edition Golden Bridge watch. This time, the watchmaker in La Chaux-de-Fonds paid tribute to the iconic shape and style of the first Golden Bridge watch with a new Golden Bridge Rectangle limited edition-18k rose gold and 18k white gold. Limited to three pieces.
Shaping the history of watchmaking
Creating a molded movement is no easy task, but despite being a Florida-born artist and self-taught watchmaker, Vincent Calabrese created an innovative rectangular movement that won the award of Corum founder René Bannward Heart. In 1980, the first Corum Golden Bridge watch adopted a linear movement, creating the illusion of being suspended in the air in the eye-catching rectangular case of the watch (attached to the case only at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock) .
In addition, Calabrese also envisaged placing the movement in a glass display cabinet, so the front and back of the Golden Bridge watch are made of glass. When it was launched, before the Swiss watch industry had recovered from the quartz crisis, the Golden Bridge watch was a spectacle, combining not only an unusual case shape, but also a benchmark movement.
The new Rose Gold and White Gold Corum Golden Bridge Rectangular Watches are both 29.50 mm x 42.20 mm, a tribute to the Art Deco period when Mr. Bannwart was inspired by it. Both timepieces are decorated with handmade finishes, which not only pay tribute to the 40th anniversary of the famous Golden Bridge design, but also pay tribute to the craftsmanship tradition of La Chaux-de-Fonds, the birthplace of Kunlun watches. Modifications to the design include a 30-meter waterproof case and manual winding movement CO113. The movement part is decorated with 18k gold, which can provide a 40-hour power reserve and vibrates at a rhythm of 28,800 times per hour. These limited-edition Corum watches are installed in the case of each watch in the same linear arrangement, echoing the work of Vincent Calabrese, who is likely to remain the most respected in the field of independent watchmaking. One of the brands. Both watches are equipped with a sapphire case and an 18ct gold crown, bridges and splints made of corresponding gold to match the case material of each watch.
