Corum’s matchless Golden Bridge has won the Public Prize in the ‘Watch of the Year 2005’ contest. Universally renowned, Golden Bridge watch in its new interpretation exemplifies a fresh design fit for recent cutting-edge technologies. Anyone would get fascinated by Corum’s new Golden Bridge collection: baguette-shaped 18-carat gold bridges, diamond bezel perfectly hand-engraved with charming rolling patterns, tiny gears lined up together, and slim open-worked black gold hands, that seem to be suspended in the space invented by the transparence of the four sapphire crystals enveloping the case. The case is featured in fine 18-carat gold or platinum ribs, with a tonneau-shape and inwardly curved down to provide a feeling of special comfort on the wrist.
The watch is powered by the miniature mechanical movement with a variable inertia balance adjustable by means of four 18 carat gold inertia-blocks. The movement has been completely redesigned and developed in cooperation with the prominent Swiss manufacturer Vaucher of Fleurier. The watch has been supplied by a slipping spring winding system and 40 hours power-reserve that makes it possible to place the winding and time-setting crown at 6 o’clock between the horns of the case. For just about $30,000, any model chosen from a great variety of Corum watches will bring its owner a lot of glorious victories.
