Corum keeps on expanding its spectacular Golden Bridge collection with a new Golden Bridge Rectangle. This version features a new shape while keeping all of the classical aspects that made this iconic range’s reputation : an horizontal baguette-shaped movement mixed with breathtaking skeletonization.
A new refined case for this Golden Bridge Rectangle
The house established at La-Chaud-De-Fonds offers an original take on one of its iconic models. We owe this elegant and stylish piece to the brilliant mind of Dino Modolo. The designer put his spin on the movement and structure of this Art-deco inspired watch.
The Swiss brand had only offered round-shaped and barrel-shaped pieces previously. This new rectangular watch is a welcomed addition that brings freshness to the Golden Bridge collection. The rectangular 29,50 mm x 42,20 mm case really brings the baguette-shaped movement out. We’re also keen on the 18-karat gold side structures, shaped in the form of roman numerals. An ingenious way to use free space for a lovely as well as useful result, considering that no other model features numerical hour markers. The overall look cleverly reminds the architecture of a bridge.
Focus on the horizontal movement
As usual with Corum’s Golden Bridge collection, this watch features extensive skeletonization that really puts the focus on the movement. Fans of mechanisms and movements will be pleased as this watch that has nothing to hide and hides nothing provides a full view on the hand-wound bridge-shaped movement. One can see every piece of the CO 113 caliber at work, from the spring barrel to the escapement. This type of baguette-shaped movement is no common thing in the watchmaking world and Corum has managed to make it a trademark feat.
The watch runs at a frequency of 4 Hz and provides a power reserve of about 40 hours. Pleas note that for the first time ever the Golden Bridge is fully water-resistant up to 30 meters deep or 3 atmospheres, a nice touch for those that like to wear their watch around water. The watch comes on a brown alligator leather bracelet with a rose gold triple folding clasp.
