Corum’s Golden Bridge replica has always been a fascinating watch, thanks to its skeletonized linear movement, which transfers energy from the six o’clock barrel to the top escapement. In the past few decades, it has appeared in many forms, including the round version of 2016, and this year returned to its roots with a 18K rose gold rectangular case. This iconic manual winding movement is still amazing, this time with two bridge-like structures on both sides, with six three-dimensional Roman numeral hour markers, which are also refined in 18K rose gold.
A powerful review: 2 weeks of wristband with CORUM golden bridge rectangular watch
‘They’ said that you only have one chance to make a first impression. From my time working at a jeweler, this statement holds true. Whether the customer’s brand is fond of poetry, or objectively showing the better quality of a certain movement, is always the second factor for whether the customer likes the watch appearance. This is what the original Golden Bridge designer Vincent Calabrese did when he worked in a Swiss watch boutique in the 1970s. When a customer brought this treasure-guess repeater that had been hit by a car into the boutique, Vincent began creating quotations for the refurbishment of the case and movement. To his shock, the customer refused to repair the movement and said that no one would see it. Vincent later recalled: “His words hung my ears, which prompted me to make a watch with a movement instead of a case or a design that is a star.”
The Corum Golden Bridge Rectangle perfectly balances the exquisite design and jaw-dropping timepieces.
Establishing a linear movement in a slim golden bridge between the two watch halves is not without challenges, but in 1977, the first Golden Bridge prototype was completed (only 45 parts!). It does not have any water resistance, and there are many technical problems, but it still won a gold medal at the Geneva International Inventor Exhibition. After the event, Corum founder Rene Bannwart suggested to Vincent to make watches for his brand. Three years later, in 1980, Corum Golden Bridge was launched and quickly became one of the brand’s most well-known timepieces.
It ’s been 37 years now, and Corum launched Rectangle earlier this year with the newly designed Golden Bridge series. chronowrist.ru
The more obvious situation and the golden beam are immediately visible. The dial of the first Golden Bridge is completely empty, completely focused on the movement, but the new rectangular case adds some necessary structure and visual impact in the form of rose gold beams as stylized Roman numerals. The new beam is not a thin gold strip floating on the crystal, but has a certain depth and structure, which can be seen when the watch is tilted at a certain angle. When telling the time, the silver rivets in the middle column add a little function, but mainly for artistic talent. The size of the Golden Bridge is 29.5 mm x 42.2 mm, and the thickness is 9.3 mm. It can be well attached to the wrist, and its impact force exceeds its delicate movement effect.
The highlight of the best replica watch is the linear movement, which is completely visible from both sides of the watch.
What I found interesting is that turning the mechanical watch over to be greeted by the mirror image you just saw is very strange! For those who think that the display backboard is stupid because you have to remove the watch from your wrist, I think this is the right watch for you! The bridge itself, like the case and beams, is made of 18kt rose gold, hand-finished with impeccable details, and has a decorative curl in the center. When you wind your watch, you can see the gear transmission turning or watching the balance swing, which is unforgettable. This is from people who don’t like skeleton watches! My usual criticism of skeleton watches is that the function of the watch is always second only to the visual effect of watching the movement, but this linear design is very good without affecting the performance of the watch.
The Caliber CO113 movement beats at a standard frequency of 4hz / 28,800bph and has a moderate power reserve of 40 hours. After reviewing the Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern 5 Day Automatic, I will say that there will be some whipping when adjusting to a shorter power reserve, but I find myself having nothing to complain about. This is not a watch designed for practical use. Although I will continue to complain about a “normal” watch with only 40 hours, I feel wrong when talking about Corum Golden Bridge. You will complain that the new Bugatti does not have enough cup holders when it reaches 60 mph in less than 2 seconds.
The Golden Bridge rectangle is both a work of art and a work of art, and how is the work of art measured from the perspective of “value for money”?
I do n’t usually think of the status table as a status symbol … but I would say that I feel untouchable when wearing the Golden Bridge (while walking into the door handle very, very, and very vigilantly). Wearing a pure gold watch that is more expensive than an ordinary family car, you may have some sw. I think I am a down-to-earth guy, so this is not a big move I am not used to, but I must admit that I really like it. If you can afford fake Corum, then I really recommend that you study Corum, because it is a unique watch, no matter what clock education people receive, it will definitely attract people’s attention.
