Luxury watch manufacturer Corum was the idea of Rene Brannwart. He was a savvy student at the Geneva Business School and then joined the watch giants Patek Philippe and Omega, where he founded the first creative department. And launched a leading watch style that is still the treasure of the brand. It took Brannwart decades to learn and hone his skills on Patek Phillipe and Omega before branching and establishing his own brand with his uncle Gaston Ries. With many years of experience, he worked with senior watchmakers and engineers matching his business background. Together with his uncle, he created the brand now known as Corum.
Brannwart has a close relationship with the term “quorum”. “Quorum” only means the minimum number of people who attend the meeting and discuss and make effective decisions and decide to name his brand with this expression, but the spelling is more simplified. Their brand key symbolizes upward, representing innovation and many unsolved mysteries in life. The Corum brand was launched in 1955. The first batch of fake luxury watches was released the following year, and attracted many people’s interest with its unique inventions and unique designs, such as gold tubes, Chinese hats and feather watches.
In the early days, Corum combined the rare themes in watches to create some of the most outstanding and unique watch designs ever. Today, Corum is still designing excellent watches, while still adhering to its excellent craftsmanship, such as the updated version of the brand’s iconic Golden Bridge watch, Golden Bridge Automatic.
The CORUM Golden Bridge Automatic Watch is a large timepiece with a 51.8 x 37.2 mm 18-carat red or white gold case and a black alligator leather strap. The Golden Bridge watch has 194 parts, a 40-hour power reserve, 26 jewels, 28,800 vibrations per hour, and is waterproof to 99 feet.
The timepiece is completely transparent, making the golden bridge in the center the star of the watch. The original Golden Bridge replica watch released by Corum in 1980 had the same “floating” baguette, but was manually wound. The automatic Golden Bridge watch has a slightly larger barrel-type case, which makes the Golden Bridge more conspicuous and becomes the prominent focus of the timepiece. Corum spares no effort to pay attention to details, because even the back of the case contains some anti-glare coating crystals, which can be found on the front to see the movement more clearly.
