A LITTLE BUBBLE OF FRESHNESS
The Bubble family has just got bigger! Born this summer, Corum’s new creation attracts the eye with a palette of refreshing colours crowned with precious or fine stones and an ultra mini diameter!
And now the Bubble family has a little sister! For a long time, Corum explored different types of dial (by varying colours or patterns and sometimes both) and focused on large watches (42, 47 and 52mm, in order of size) in this watch collection, but has now opted to concentrate on smaller watches, mainly for women. And if you’re going to go small, then you might as well go really small! So here is the latest addition to the range: the Mini Bubble.
Even though the Mini Bubble borrows from the design elements of its predecessors, with its circular steel case, ultra-rounded sapphire glass for a “magnifying glass” effect and the bubble-shaped crown with a rubber grip, it still stands out with its own personality. The watch comes in a trio of colours: bright blue, half way between turquoise and peacock blue; red vermillion with a hint of burgundy, and a delicately amber-tinted beige. Each one has a bezel set with 36 stones to match the colour of the dial, including topazes, rubies and diamonds, to add light and sparkle. The alligator leather strap, also in a matching colour and rounded off with a steel tang buckle, contribute to the overall harmony.
The 17-mm-wide steel case is water-resistant down to 30m. It contains a quartz movement, the calibre CO137. The calibre drives the wide, curved leaf-shaped hands for the hours and minutes.
What is small is often precious, and the Mini Bubble watches by Corum are limited to 18 pieces for each colour.
