Corum

Corum is a Swiss luxury watch brand. Corum was founded in 1955. The most popular watch series is the Corum Admiral's Cup but Corum has also had success with the Corum coin watch. This timepiece was introduced in the 1960s and was famous for its manual wind or quartz movement inside a $20 or a $10 coin. Corum is also respected for world premiers where every year limited editions are sold out soon after they are on the market. Severin Wunderman acquired Corum in 2000 and since 2013 belongs to the China Haidian Group (who also controls the Eterna watch brand). Notable Corum watches include the Corum Admiral's Cup, Corum Romulus, Corum Golden Bridge, Corum Tourbillon and Classical, Corum Coin Watch, Corum Artisan Timepieces. Corum replica watches and Corum watch replica are not worth the money. Please refer to the official Corum watches prices as issued in the Croum watch price list to identify Corum serial numbers and data of original Corum watches. Mostly Corum men's watches are bought but the brand has also gained traction among female collectors. The Corum Bubble watch continues to be popular, many collectors buy custom Corum watch bands. We recommend that you read our Corum watch review content before committing to a purchase. We cover Corum watch news, blog posts, updates and other posts about Corum watches as well as Corum watch infos. Corum watches are available globally.
