Swiss watchmaker Corum launched an airy mechanical beauty, the Golden Bridge Tourbillon Panoramique timepiece.
“Featuring 360° visibility, as if suspended weightless at the center of the case by a sapphire mainplate and bridges, Manufacture Corum Caliber CO100 is the true star of the new Golden Bridge Tourbillon Panoramique. This finely openworked translucent movement is equipped with a cantilevered or “flying” tourbillon: freed from an upper bridge, it appears to be levitating above the movement.”
Corum has opted here for a so-called flying tourbillon, the movement beats at 21,600 vibrations per hour (3 Hz), and has a 90-hour power reserve. The entire device, adorned with a finely engraved Corum key, is held to the sapphire mainplate by its base alone. The watch is available in three variations issued in limited editions: ten with an 18kt red gold case; five with a baguette-set 18kt red gold case; and five with an 18kt red gold case set with round diamonds.
