The story of the Corum Watch Golden Bridge is extraordinary. One day, Vincent Calabrese, a young watchmaker from the idyllic town of Lacau-de-Fonds, knocked on the door of the Corum watch to introduce his latest invention: a strange-looking Rectangular movement. He probably did not know that from now on, this would become the movement of the flagship complication watch of Corum, and it has remained the benchmark to this day!
That was in the late 1970s – and CORUM founder René Bannwart was so excited that he immediately patented this unique movement. By the way, Vincent Calabrese still works for CORUM to this day and supports the team in developing the latest Golden Bridge creations.
The CORUM Golden Bridge replica is considered an avant-garde watch because of its unique movement placed in the center of the transparent sapphire crystal case. The watch’s name is affectionately dedicated to San Francisco’s famous Golden Gate Bridge – and you can see why.
Since the Golden Bridge watch was first introduced in 1980, its collection has grown steadily. Here are some important milestones: In 2009, Corum presented its new exclusive movement (CO 007), which was designed, developed and assembled in-house! In 2011, the CORUM Bridges collection launched its first linear-winding automatic movement: the Golden Bridge Automatic. With it on, you can see the little “sled” running up and down!
In 2016, CORUM launched the first Golden Bridge with a round case designed by Dino Modolo, which you can see in the center of our picture! The inside of the case shows a cutaway view of the Golden Gate Bridge building. We also got our hands on this year’s novelty “Golden Bridge Rectangle” which will be available during Baselworld at the end of March! A clever combination of all the golden bridge elements in a slightly smaller case that is also suitable for smaller wrists.
On the left side of the picture, you can see the beautiful 18k gold standard gold bridge hand-wound, showing three different styles in the history of the golden bridge. It’s really not easy to pick a favorite. wholesale replica watches
