Corum Ti-Bridge for Only Watch

Corum TI-Bridge for Only Watch

Corum has created a unique version of the Ti-Bridge watch for Only Watch 2009. The new and exclusive movement is designed, developed and assembled in-house. The CO 007 movement is clearly inspired by the Golden Bridge caliber, but the overall style of the timepiece gives the original concept a new and contemporary twist.

Both the case and the movement are in titanium, a material known to be lightweight and difficult to work with. The bridges and plates of the Caliber CO 007 are cut from this titanium and black PVD-coated. The
upper bridge is engraved with the “Corum” brand name. The bridges are satin-finished, while the generously sized barrel is snail finished. The balance oscillates at 4 Hz, giving Caliber CO 007 a 72-hour power reserve. The curved and tonneau-shaped case is made from grade 5 titanium – the only kind that can be polish-finished – and measures 42.5 mm by 41.5 mm. On the case-back, Corum has engraved a famous quote from Antoine de St-Exupéry taken from the book “Le Petit Prince” that says: “Les enfants seuls savent ce qu’ils cherchent” (“Only children know what they are looking for”).

The movement is secured inside the case by a set of two titanium cross bars that are black PVD-coated. On the case-side there are black rubber inserts which bring a matte and smooth looking rubber finish to the timepiece. The Ti-Bridge is teamed with a black crocodile strap with raspberry pink hand stitching to tie in with the aesthetic codes of Only Watch. The Corum Ti-Bridge Only Watch is delivered with a second strap made of rubber, both equipped with a titanium-capped triple folding clasp.

Only Watch is held every two years during the Monaco Yacht Show. The auction will be conducted by Patrizzi & Co. on September 24. The auction enjoys the high patronage of HSH Prince Albert II, and all proceeds of the sale go to support research into Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a childhood illness.

Geneva (Patrizzi & Co): 27 – 29 August
London (Asprey): 3 – 5 September
