After launching a vibrant “risk as reward” campaign, #corum took the bold and innovative concept to a new level with the #corum LAB 02 timepiece. In violation of all watchmaking conventions, technologically advanced watches have a brand-new movement developed over two years. The design of the new movement is revolutionary, equipped with a flying gear system and many other firsts of the brand.
LAB 02 is a perfect example of aesthetic perfection and extraordinary craftsmanship. The highly complex manual movement not only extends the imagination of watchmaking, but also limits the physical conditions of watchmaking. At the time of creation, members of Corum’s development team challenged themselves to provide not only flying tourbillons, but also various flying gear systems. They asked a question: “What if the movement has no bridge?” Then they worked tirelessly on their unconventional pursuits.
Two years later, #corum launched LAB02. Its caliber CO 300 is composed of 416 impressive independent components, each of which has been carefully skeletonized and finished. Each piece is manually assembled in a unique form, and is equipped with a flying tourbillon at 6:00. The flywheel can track hours, minutes and seconds, and the bridge is directly set on the motherboard.
In addition, manufacturing a movement that is not sandwiched between the motherboard and the bridge is a technical difficulty that must be overcome. LAB02 requires a longer gear shaft, and in the absence of a top bridge, ball bearings are needed to replace the ruby on the main board to increase strength and stability. A single motherboard is also highly skeletonized. Then the entire movement is placed on a completely transparent sapphire plate, so that you can see the excellent scene, and it seems that all the elements are floating in space.
LAB 02 is also equipped with a grand date function at 4:00, and its power reserve indicator (55 hours) is specially placed so that it can be seen through the sapphire glass on the side of the case at 8:00. Due to the extremely complex characteristics of this 45 mm watch, only 10 pieces can be manufactured, each of which is identified by a specific plate number on the lens barrel.
Each LAB 02 can be customized, so that you can personally choose the color of gold, the choice of diamond cutting and setting, and even choose colored gemstones.
Adhering to the founding philosophy of always staying avant-garde to maintain its future, corum has developed the LAB series to showcase its unprecedented attempts at the unique and fearless watchmaking industry. LAB 02 is the second laboratory swiss watch men to debut, LAB 01 was released in early 2019. This new pillar of the #corum series pays tribute to the founder of the brand, who are always adventurers and unqualified. The entire premise of the LAB series is to break the routine by thinking outside the well-known box. LAB 02 can indeed be delivered.
