Independent watchmaker Vincent Calabrese may be working over at Blancpain now but the spirit of his early innovation at Corum lives on, thanks to the legendary Golden Bridge watch. Back in 1980, this
watch was possibly the first non-skeleton wristwatch to put the movement front
Corum honors this breathtaking historic piece with a new version in titanium. The movement – manual-winding calibre CO113 – has its plates and lone bridge executed in 18k rose gold. Take note of the usual high degree of finishing on this bridge as well as the combination of satin and polished surfaces of the case.
Titanium watches usually feature only satin surfaces. Notice also that sapphire crystal is used on the sides of the case as well as the front and back. The 34mm X 51mm watch sports a variable inertia balance wheel and 40 hours of power reserve. It is limited to 188 pieces.
