To celebrate the brand’s 55th anniversary, Corum is re-issuing some of its classic models in limited series. One of them is the Round Golden Bridge featuring the legendary C0113 baguette movement. This caliber accommodates 140 components in a space just just 33mm long, 3mm high and less than 5mm thick.
This mechanical, hand-wound caliber is equipped with a variable-inertia balance beating at a frequency of 4 Hertz or 28,800 vph. Other technical features include a barrel equipped with slip-springs, a 40-hour power reserve, as well as the solid gold hand-engraved mainplate and bridges.
The 41mm case is suitable for a man or a woman and the open design allows the movement to be viewed from all angles. Even the hands are openworked so as to hide as little of the movement as possible.
The Round Golden Bridge will be issued in a limited edition of 75 pieces, priced at $25,000. Complete specifications appear below the image, which may be enlarged with a click.
