Since 1955, Corum has considered creativity and daring as his cardinal values. The brand continues the path laid down by its founders, remaining more than ever loyal to iconic collections while enriching them with a modern and powerful touch, full of innovation and technical progress.
The Admiral is one of the pillars of the heritage of the house. Unveiled in 1960, just five years after the creation of the house, she embodies maritime watchmaking according to Corum.
The Admiral 45 Skeleton is a more radical piece that gives equal play to nautical design and pure watchmaking mechanics.
This one is now in the open. The particular nature of the movement deserves this undressing: it is designed in-house, designed by Corum and produced by EMC, its own production entity. It is the caliber CO 082, offering 42 hours of power reserve. Fully unveiled, it offers the Admiral a more energetic look. The Admiral 45 Skeleton is not satisfied with a lack of dial. Its bridges have all been perforated and covered with an anthracite gray surface that offers two contrasts. The first is made with the gears in nickel silver movement whose copper color is radiantly detached from the other components.
At the show, Corum has unveiled the new Bubble Central Tourbillon. The piece has three attributes that make it a unique tourbillon in watchmaking. First, the generous dimensions of the room: with its 47 mm, the Bubble offers a vast field of expression that allows the tourbillon to express itself in all its generosity. Then, the central position of this whirlpool. It is a complex technical choice since it forces an online construction of the template. However, the complication offers an un-angled anchor and allows this tourbillon in the central position to immediately catch the eye. On many occasions, Corum played with its magnifying effect (in the center) and slightly deforming (at the edge) to create different visual effects. This is still the case today: the top of the curved glass acts as a magnifying glass on the whirlpool just below, allowing a natural way to grasp the smallest details.
