This week, Corum announced two limited editions of their Golden Bridge transparent watch, presented in a round 43 mm x 8.8 mm grade 5 titanium case with black DLC treatment. The company’s baguette-shaped in-house caliber CO 113 movement is suspended vertically in the center of the case – with a sapphire dial and sapphire crystals protecting the front and back – which creates a completely see-through effect.
Black baton-shaped hands indicate the hours and minutes and are driven by the manually wound 4Hz 19-jewel movement which has a 40-hour power reserve. The crown is located at 6 o’clock. There are two different Golden Bridge Round 43 Art Deco models to choose from, one with a rhodium-plated finish and the other with a gold-plated finished (movement, cables, crown).
Four symmetrical series of cables (16 in total) extend across both sides of the movement, however, these were designed add to the art deco aesthetics and provide no structural support.
Available in two series strictly limited to 188 pieces, the Golden Bridge Round 43 Art Deco is 30 meters water-resistant and comes on a black vulcanized rubber bracelet. Retail is $23,800. Also be sure to check 10 most expensive watches in the world.
