Corum-Admiral 42 Automatic Bronze

Admiral was launched in 1960 and is one of the most iconic works of Corum. The Swiss brand, headquartered in La Chaux-de-Fonds, was founded only 5 years ago.

Since its launch, the Admiral series has always shown a close connection with the nautical world. The same goes for the latest model of this iconic series, the Admiral 42 Automatic Bronze.

Bronze is a material often used in old ships. It is a saltwater-resistant alloy that develops a peculiar patina over time, making each piece unique in some way. In order to keep it as uniform as possible over time, the 42 mm case and its dodecagonal bezel are enhanced by a unique satin-brushed treatment.

The dial of the Admiral 42 Automatic Bronze is available in navy blue or sea green. There are 12 pennant-shaped hour markers on the dial, which is a typical representative of the series.

The watch is equipped with a Corum self-winding movement that can be seen through the sapphire caseback, with a small second at 6 o’clock and a date display at 3 o’clock.

Corum-Golden Bridge Tourbillon Panorama

Jinqiao is undoubtedly one of the best watches in the history of Corum. Now, Corum watches are trying to surpass the Golden Bridge Tourbillon panoramic watch.

The CO100 movement of the Corum Watch Factory has a 360-degree field of view, as if suspended weightlessly in the center of the case through the sapphire main bridge and the bridge. It is the true star of the new Golden Bridge Tourbillon panoramic watch. This finely hollowed translucent movement is equipped with a cantilevered or “flying” tourbillon: freed from the upper bridge, it seems to be suspended above the movement.

The movement vibrates 21,600 times per hour and has a power reserve of 90 hours.

The Golden Bridge Tourbillon Panoramique is water-resistant to 30 meters and is available in three limited editions; ten models use 18k rose gold cases, five use rectangular inlaid 18k rose gold cases, and five use 18k rose gold cases with round diamonds. Each watch is equipped with two hand-woven black and brown alligator leather straps, each with a triple-folding rose gold buckle.

New Longines Spirit Bucherer BLUE watch

Bucherer’s modern interpretation of the Longines Pilot’s Watch.

In addition to being the world’s largest watch retailer, Bucherer is also known for its in-house special edition watch series, all of which are centered on the brand’s iconic color blue. This impressive collection, now known as Bucherer Blue, brings together some attractive models that use blue in proportion to create unique versions of existing watches. Now, it’s time to make the winged hourglass part of the family, and the new (quite modern) Longines Spirit Bucherer BLUE watch has a time and chronograph version.

The Bucherer BLUE series formula usually uses a lot of blue on the dial, strap and even the caseā€¦ but not always. The Longines Spirit series launched this year proves that Bucherer can be creative in making his own watches. Even though blue is found on these watches, it is not the main color.

Bucherer’s idea was to give Longines’ latest pilot series Spirit (we show it here and explore green or titanium later) in a more modern outfit. As a reminder, Spirit is a series of classic watches with typical Longines and aviation design clues, but this vintage-inspired series is not a reprint, but is built from scratch to celebrate this rich tradition. It displays time and date, 40 mm and 42 mm case, and 42 mm chronograph version. Longines Spirit Bucherer BLUE Watches are built around chronographs and smaller 3-pin models.

The notable change is the use of a black DLC coating on the case, combined with a matte black dial with blue accents. Both are worn on a black fabric strap with blue stitching. Importantly, both watches are now equipped with no date display, which greatly changes the layout and symmetry of the watch.

The first model of the Longines Spirit Bucherer BLUE series is based on a three-hand model with a diameter of 40 mm. The black case contains the brand’s proprietary L888.4 movement, which is a COSC-certified automatic movement with a 72-hour power reserve and a silicon balance spring with anti-magnetic properties.

The second replica automatic watches of the Longines Spirit Bucherer BLUE series is built around a larger and bolder version of the chronograph with a case diameter of 42 mm. The black case houses the L688.4 movement, which is a COSC-certified proprietary automatic column-wheel chronograph movement, anti-magnetic silicon balance spring and 66-hour power reserve.
