One of high watchmaking’s most iconic and recognizable watches is now available in a black ceramic case. The manual wind “golden bridge” caliber is perfectly staged within its black ceramic case framed by four sapphire crystals forming the upper glass, back and sides. The golden bridge mechanism with its linear construction was first introduced in 1980 and quickly became a Swiss watch industry icon. This version bears the hand-engraved Corum signature, surrounded by a slender scrolling motif depicting the three types of fern that grown in the forests of La Chaux-de-Fonds, the region where the Golden Bridge sprang to life. The red gold mainplate is also adorned with delicate hand engravings. Great piece.
34mm x 51mm black ceramic case; back cover and strap pin bucle in black PVD titanium, manual wind Corum CO 113 caliber (40 hour power reserve, 4Hz/28,800vph)
