Corum at La Chaux-de-Fonds is a small batch of art houses, known for its “Bubble”, “Feather”, “Coin” and twelve-shaped Admiral Cup sports watch series. However, the Corum Bridge series is the basis of the brand’s claim to high-grade streetwear. Like the original “Golden Bridge” in 1980, the Corum Bridge Ti-Bridge tourbillon also made an important contribution to Corum’s internal watchmaking skills.
Consider what the Corum Ti-Bridge tourbillon stands for; it is a golden bridge reimagined with titanium alloy, and a flying tourbillon reimagined like a sports watch. This avant-garde complication is not only a significant offense to tradition, but also a holy grail for fans of the most prestigious complication in the watch industry. You can wear the tourbillon in any outfit every day.
Corum launched the first Ti-Bridge tourbillon watch in 2009, followed by the bolder Ti-Bridge tourbillon best watch in 2010. Not only is the tourbillon grafted to the internal Ti-Bridge movement, the CO 22 movement also bypasses more general tourbillons for flying tourbillon mechanisms. Flying tourbillon is an innovation in the early 20th century, it omits the bridge structure on the visible side of the tourbillon bracket. It is more difficult to execute, and it looks more spectacular.
Corum’s Ti-Bridge case provides a spacious gallery that showcases the main charms. With its spider web baguette bridge, hollow support bar and linear transmission system, CO-22 is an open book that can be read up close with a magnifying glass, speculum or even the naked eye. Like its front axle Golden Bridge, Ti-Bridge is a linear display cabinet used to display the mechanical elements of Swiss lever movements.
Literally, the power rotates from the barrel at three o’clock to the flying tourbillon at nine o’clock. There are two barrels on both sides of the movement, which can provide a power reserve of three days (72 hours). Although the alloy supporting this impressive watchmaking net is PVD-coated and officially called “ARCAP”, its chemical composition is very similar to the famous “German silver”. Nickel-copper alloy It is famous for vintage wholesale watches and modern uses. A. Products provided by Lange & Sohne.
Corum’s mechanical ballet circulates on a stage surrounded by an aggressive and ergonomic titanium enclosure. The original Golden Bridge was a small prism resembling a fragile crystal shell, while the Titanium Bridge was pushed across the wrist with a firm posture by Richard Mille barrel.
The distance from the lug to the lug is not less than 51mm, and the width is not less than 42mm. The back of the curved case of the Corum Ti-Bridge tourbillon makes it firmly fixed on the wrist as small as 15CM. The titanium case is mainly brushed to ensure that the attention is firmly fixed on the mechanical center part, but the titanium-colored titanium bridge has the same appearance. In addition, this strange metal wears bright on the wrist.
The superb black crocodile leather belt combined with the sturdy deployant buckle ensure safety and comfort. The belt has an anchor point that starts at the boundary of the housing lugs, so its downward bending starts before the edge of the housing. Small wrists benefit. All wrists will feel pleasant under the soft calf leather of the Corum strap, and the tank structure with double trigger and double deployment buckle conforms to the standard of Corum flagship model.
Want more? You are right; the Corum Ti-Bridge tourbillon has comprehensive shock protection on the tourbillon carriage and 5-ATM waterproof performance on the case. In such complications, these two functions are rare, but combined, refined series is the exception. Coupled with the super anti-magnetic and corrosion resistance of the ARCAP movement, it is clear that the Corum Ti-Bridge tourbillon watch is designed to spend a beautiful day, not to spend time. Indeed, this is a tourbillon for collectors who believe that watches are made for wearing. Bao gue – a man, not a brand – will like it.
