It was 40 years ago, in 1977, that the first inkling of what would become Corum's legendary Golden Bridge watch came into being. That year, independent watchmaker Vincent Calabrese unveiled an unusual baguette-shaped movement with linear gear train, wheels etc. It didn't take long for the innovative concept to be recognized by the then-owner of Corum, Jean Renee Bannwart, who immediately purchased the patent from Calabrese. Three years later, the first Corum Golden Bridge watches made their debut.
Since that time, the line has continued to evolve, but the newest release unveiled at Baselworld is particularly appealing. The Golden Bridge Rectangle watch is a bold reinterpretation of that first rectangular piece. Taking inspiration from the Art Deco era, the new watch features a grid-like structure that forms the brand's Roman numerals. The watch is crafted initially in 18-karat rose gold (we expect more iterations) and is powered by the manually wound vertically linear Caliber CO113.
