TIME AND GEOMETRY
Corum’s Golden Bridge is famous for its visible baguette movement, like a skyscraper at the centre of the dial. The watch boasts a striking design and a round titanium case coated in black DLC
In 1980, almost 40 years ago, the Golden Bridge was launched. The “baguette” movement, created by the watchmaker Vincent Calabrese, caught the attention with its linear cogwheels and an arrangement that literally hung in the air inside a rectangular case. The angular watch produced by Corum has always been a source of visual, but also of technical magic. Today the collection is joined by two new circular versions. Far from being a sacrilege, they show an architectural development involving a geometry of shapes with a rectangle set inside the circle.
The titanium DLC case on the two Golden Bridge watches is 43mm wide and 8.80mm thick. The timepieces are worn with a black textured rubber strap, rounded off by a folding clasp.
