Corum has re-issued in limited edition its Round Golden Bridge. They have in recent past come up with some vintage re-issues that have been appreciated for adding to the original designs. But the Round Golden Bridge is not from that long ago. It is relatively recent compared to the other two. It was originally released in 1994 but if you see the fast evolution of modern watch design even 1994 can be safely termed as vintage.
The watch comes in an 18k red gold case that is round, but houses Corum’s famous Golden Bridge “stick thin” mechanical manually wound movement. What impresses you the most is that it actually has gold bridges. The movement visually bi-sects the round case that is 41mm wide and presents a very interesting look. The rest of the dial is black with vertical texturing, while the sloped flange ring is lined with triangular gold hour markers.
The watch hands are stubby because that is all the weight the petite movement can take. The movement bridge/plate is nicely engraved which continues up to the lugs and visually very appealing. The watch is matched to a black crocodile strap, and is limited to just 75 pieces.
