During this year’s Geneva Watch Days, Swiss brand Corum presents a Concept Watch that puts the known design of a wristwatch where the movement lies beneath the dial proverbially upside down, as essential parts of its hand-wound manufacture caliber boasting an impressive 90-hour power reserve are staged above the dial. The breathtaking view is enhanced by a slightly domed sapphire crystal and can be admired from all angles.
The 39.5mm round case draws inspiration from fluid contours and is crafted from recycled grade 5 titanium. In the spotlight of this haute-horlogerie timepiece is the captivating flying tourbillon. Every element of the movement has been painstakingly crafted, creating an illusion of weightlessness against the backdrop of sapphire plates. Above this breathtaking architecture, the skeletonized, arrow-tipped hour and minute hand make their rounds.
Beneath the movement lies the dial, which is made from aventurine stone and conjures the spectacle of a meteor shower, adding a touch of cosmic beauty.
Remarkably, the bracelet of this Concept Watch is made from recycled textile material, underscoring the brand’s commitment to sustainable and innovative materials.
The case back offers a stunning view, too, as all the elements that can be seen from the front are on display through cutouts. In a surprising move and as a nod to the manufacturer’s sense of humor, the essential features of this timepiece are written next to the cutout. The estimated retail price for the Corum Concept Watch is marked at CHF 420,000.
