Posted by Shreve & Co. at 4:00:00 AM in Corum (30)

Swiss luxury watchmaker Corum wants to amplify the heat this summer as it launches its new Limited Corum Bubble Luminova collection, flaunting the shimmering allure of mother-of-pearl dials and pushing the ante further with its SuperLuminova in a new line of sporty chic Bubble timepieces for him and her.

Equipped with CO 082 automatic movement, the new Corum Bubble Luminova watches are expertly crafted in stainless steel, the iconic bold domed antireflective sapphire crystal, with a 42- hour power reserve and vivid luminescence that’s perfect for night use.

A Really Impressive luxury watch

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 9:00:00 AM in Corum (30)

Want a luxury watch that is not as widely used and media saturated as the usual suspects you find endorsed by sports and Hollywood celebrities? There’s one  that’s just released this year by Corum. But be prepared to shell out $40,000 up for it. The Corum Golden Bridge timepiece is exclusive; the company only released the first version of the brand’s signature “baguette” movement now since the ground-breaking feature was introduced more than 35 years ago.  The watch model is patterned after the iconic Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, CA and is available in 18k diamond-encrusted white gold, 18k rose gold, and 18k rose gold set with 84 diamonds. It measures 43 mm across and 8.3 mm thick. The watch is water resistant up to 30 m. But the main attraction is that you can see a 360-degree view of the movement.  The Corum Golden Bridge Round is developed by Dino Modolo.

Men have few style options

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 9:00:00 AM in Corum (30)

Men have few accessories to wear if they want to appeal to their fashion senses. Unlike women who have a wide range of jewelry pieces, not the least dress styles, men are often stuck with a limited choice in what they can wear. So they have to choose well to project the right image. For a slick, neat and smart look, they can turn to watches that match a good set of well-fit suits and shoes. They can turn to Corum, the Swiss watch, for that classic and elegant look. The Corum Admiral Cup, for example, has simple patterns that reflect confidence and charm at once. It can be paired with a formal wear or daily corporate attire for power dressing. A set of three Corum watches, perhaps, is all a man needs to be stylish the whole time.

The Other luxury watch

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 10:00:00 AM in Corum (30)

When you mention ultra luxury watches, people usually has only 2 or 3 of these brands in mind. Only a few perhaps know that when it comes to luxury watches, there’s a brand that easily belongs to the top 3: Corum. It is the “other” luxury watch because only a few know of it. Which makes Corum more exclusive than its expensive competitors. Conversely, think about wearing a watch that you’ll easily find in another person’s wrist. Now imagine you’re the only person with a Corum in your neighborhood or office? Corum watches can fetch nearly $350,000, notably its Corum 45 Minute Repeater Troubillion Red Gold. It’s a collector’s dream watch, encased in an 18k rose gold and with a sapphire crystal cover strapped in black leather with an 18k gold buckle.

Simple and elegant is possible

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 7:00:00 AM in Corum (30)

Men are generally known to keep things simple, but that’s no longer true today. We’ve seen the rise of metrosexuals since the past decade (thanks, David Beckham) and the popularity of men’s cosmetics around the world. There are perhaps a hundred times more choices now for men’s clothing, which isn’t limited to brown and black of yesteryears. However, there are still men who prefer how things used to be. They love a simple, neutral, non-flashy style. If you’re one of these men, you can still keep this style while avoiding becoming outmoded or branded as old school. One way to achieve this balance is to wear a stylish, albeit not overwhelming, watch like Corum. It’s got the elegance but not the flair, just covert enough for a confident gentleman.

Vanguard of Haute Horlogerie

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 10:19:13 PM in Corum (30)

Haute Horologerie, or High Horology in English, literally means “high watchmaking”. It refers to the very finest and highest demonstration of the craftsmanship of mechanical timepieces. It comes as no surprise then, that Corum, maker of high-quality and high-price watches, many of which are limited editions, is one of those privileged enough to be engaged in Haute Horolegerie. In fact, Corum is seen to be a vanguard of Haute Horolegerie with its flagship complication model, the Golden Bridge introduced in 1980. With its unique linear baguette movement placed in the centre of a transparent sapphire crystal case, it remains until today an unmatched haute horlogerie timepiece. Corum is indeed proud to contribute to perpetuating the time-honored values and expertise of Fine Watchmaking.
Corum timepieces, an anachronistic nod to timeless qualities, are available at Shreve & Co. in Portland, Oregon.

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 9:00:00 AM in Corum (30)

Montres Corum Sàrl is better known as Corum, a Swiss watchmaker based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Canton of Neuchâtel.

Miss Golden Bridge

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 8:53:14 AM in Corum (30)

The Corum fame

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 9:00:00 AM in Corum (30)

The watch brand Corum is known for releasing limited editions each year, making it one of sought-after signatures in timepieces. The watch has other claims to fame, some trivial, while others are truly bragging rights. The first time watch lovers heard of it was when Corum created a watch made from a $20 gold coin. It features a manual wind or quartz movement inside a "double eagle" or a "liberty" coin that makes up the watch, which is regarded as a collectible. Corum is also noted for creating its Tourbillon and Classical collection, which showcases the most sophisticated and elegant complications. One model features a diamond and sapphire cover with a movement floating between sapphire bridges. Similarly, Corum's Admiral Cup is famous for representing one of the major yacht races in the world.

Corum Bubble is back

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 11:00:00 AM in Corum (30)

Corum is known for its popular high-end collections like the Admirals Cup and Golden Bridge, highlighted by its double tourbillons. The watchmaker, though, has a fun side. In fact, in 2000 it launched a limited edition called the Corum Bubble, which gained a following when it was featured as "most fitting for Halloween." With oversized numerals, a bold monochromatic case and strap, and an embossed case that mimics a bubble about to burst, the watch model seemed odd for the company that has produced the Admiral Cup. In fact, Corum might have felt the same oddity that it pulled the Bubble after a while. Years hence and perhaps having received numerous inquiries about the fun watch, the company decided to put Corum Bubble back.

Corum for CEOs

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 2:00:00 AM in Corum (30)

Do you know why CEOs are paid tenfold in salary compared to the rank and file? It may sound unfair at first, but a CEO has more than just a job; he has the responsibility for the entire company. In short, all other jobs in the company rest on his shoulder, a great responsibility that, if he fails to produce the results, he's out. He cannot coast through his job, like a rank and file can, but each day is a battle to be won. At the end of the day, he either emerges a winner or a loser. That's why successful CEOs are celebrated like generals who've led their armies to victory. It is for these rare people that the ultimate luxury watch like Corum Tourbilion Billionaire is designed for.

Boast about your style

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 11:45:00 AM in Corum (30)

Corum has got plenty of impressive models, but the Golden Bridge Collection is one of its most iconic styles. The parts assume a novel vertically aligned linear pattern suspended in tonneau-shaped cases, mimicking the real Golden Gate. Furthermore, a transparent case back teases you to peek inside the engineering masterpiece of this watch. One of its models, the Ti-Bridge 3-day Power Reserve, features a CO107 manual movement. It's crafted with titanium in lieu of gold or stainless steel. The case measures 42.5 mm x 52.5 mm with a curvaceous surface to snugly fit on your wrist. Its dial features a red arrow power indicator that complements the minute and hour indicators set on a peripheral flange ring. This is a watch meant to announce your success or simply to boast of your style.

Internal features of watch

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 1:00:35 AM in Corum (30)

Another way to shortlist the high-end watch brand you want to buy is by looking at the internal features. There are three main areas to assess (but you can have more depending on your personal taste). First, check the number of jewels. If it has 17 jewels, it’s typical mechanical movement. If it’s 56, it features a more quality movement. One hundred jewels and more mean it has more precision. Second, check the water resistance. For serious diving, the watch must feature at least 20 atm. At the other end, a watch with 3 atm can withstand soft rain and splash. For swimming, 5 atm can suffice, while a 10 atm is okay for light diving. Third, how many functions do you want to go into the watch? You can have standard functions like hours, minutes, and seconds; or a more complicate one like Corum with perpetual calendar, chronograph, chronometer.

The Corum Tourbillion Billionaire, for one, costs nearly four hundred thousands, a collectible truly reserved for the super rich.

Time for Opulence

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 9:00:00 AM in Corum (30)

The Corum Admiral’s Cup Tourbillion 48 Red Gold may be taken as a little over the top. Not if you’re into ultimate luxury. The watch (or is it jewelry?) features a 48-mm 18k red gold casing paved with diamonds and that’s just for starters. It has white and black diamond paved open dial and a sapphire crystal back plus a bezel encrusted with baguette-cut diamonds. The timepiece houses a manual winding CO 372 movements mounted on a tourbillion cage. A tourbillion is that extra watch feature that ensures the escapement wheel, balance wheel, and pallet fork stay in tune against the pull of gravity for precision timing. No matter how this Corum watch is positioned, the movement maintains its cadence. Capping this lavish watch is the 18k red gold triple-folding buckle.

Elegance and adventure in one watch

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 12:00:00 PM in Corum (30)

Corum represents one of the most luxurious Swiss watches in eccentric style and robust features. Its Admiral’s Cup line presents an interesting mix of feminine opulence and masculine adventure.  For instance, the Admiral's Cup Challenge 44 Regatta Limited Edition Watches has strong corners vulcanized wide black straps and bold dials, which is countered by its 18k gold casing that is delicately crafted. Similarly, the Corum Admiral's Cup Challenge 44 Split-Seconds Watches’ carbon bezel and multi-cornered casing can be intimidating and tamed only by the 18k red gold and refined leather crocodile strap. Similarly, the Corum Admiral's Cup Challenger 48 Watches features black PVD bezel, which is restrained by its titanium grade 5 case. Corum has more Admiral’s Cup models that strike a balance between elegance and adventure.

The “Other” Real Luxury Watch

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 5:00:00 AM in Corum (30)

Luxury watches are an ultimate symbol of success and the affluence that comes after it.  And when we think of luxury watches, the usual suspects come to mind (those brands that start with “O” and “R”). But there’s another luxury brand that only elite buyers know: Corum. How does $347,000 sound like for a watch? It’s the price of a Corum 45 Minute Repeater Tourbillon Red Gold. Made from18k red gold case (45mm), it’s clearly reserved for the top dog. It has sapphire crystal dial with grey PVD coating and a black leather strap with 18k gold tongue buckle. Its hand wound CO 010 movement with minute repeater ensures that time is kept precisely down to the millisecond. The Corum watch also has 72-hour power reserve and is water-resistant up to 30 meters. Of course, you don't buy this watch just to tell time, but to show the world you’re made!

Men and watches

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 9:46:52 AM in Corum (30)

Men generally value simplicity. Men are usually are not as keen to details as women. This is reflected in the way they speak and deal with things. It is also reflected in their fashion sense. Most typically, what's inside a man's closet are plain clothes to wear like trousers and collared shirts, some sporty and leather shoes and belts. For accessories, probably all he'll ever have is what he needs--a watch. The key to achieve simplicity without compromising style is to choose a high-quality, luxury watch. Something with a streamlined design yet full of value. Swiss watchmaker Corum has a collection of metal-plated watches of premier quality, many of which are limited editions. The designs are classic without being boring. Just enough elegance for a man successful yet covert. One of its famous collections, the "Admiral Cup," is an old collection that never loses its charm, a standard of simplicity and style.

A Face of Time

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 2:43:10 AM in Corum (30)

With a fresh wave of watchmaking creativity, Corum spins a different take on the face of classic timepieces. The Corum Romulus Automatic Chronograph, with COSC-certified automatic movement and a laurel crown engraved on it sapphire case back in honor of the founder of Ancient Rome, projects a classy and timeless yet unusual appeal. The elegant guilloche dial exhibits a deep yet clean feel, with small point indicators for minutes around the rim, date window at three o’clock, a tidy seconds sub-dial at six o’clock and an impressive second time zone display at 12 o’clock.  The classic style Roman numerals that indicate the hours are set prominently on the watch’s bezel, becoming a unifying element to the whole timepiece, from dial to case and bracelet. By placing the hours separate from the minute this way, Corum not only created a truly classic look but a new perspective on viewing time as well.

The Corum Kind of Different

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 12:07:50 PM in Corum (30)

One of Corum’s most striking distinctive features as a watch brand is its iconic “Bridge” in the Golden Bridge collection. These pieces are designed with unique vertically aligned linear movements that are suspended in tonneau-shaped cases, often enhanced by transparent case back that draw attention to the sophisticated dial and movement. The Ti-Bridge 3 day Power Reserve, incorporated with Corum CO107 manually wound movement, embraces the same Bridge concept. The “Ti-“ stands for titanium, which is the material for the watch’s case and bracelet instead of gold or stainless steel. The 42.5mm by 52.5mm curvy case fits snugly on the wrist and presents the tonneau dial and movement beneath in a bold and interesting display of unusual watchmaking feat. Along the right side of the dial is the red arrow of the linear style power indicator, and additional actual minute and hour indicators around the periphery on a flange ring. The Ti-Bridge is truly a stand-out piece is a Corum sort of way.

Regaled Regatta

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 12:07:14 PM in Corum (30)

Time spent holding tiller and sheets is time where the stresses and worries of everyday life are completely absent from a sailor’s mind. The hollow thud the boat makes when the hull hits a big wave, like in a rollercoaster, the utter relief realizing that there isn’t any queue nor a traffic jam and all you hear is the sound of the wind and all you see is the water and the distant land. It’s only you and the sea, its vastness and unending movement, its familiar but other worldly strangeness, its colors, its simultaneous relentless beauty and awful inestimable power of destruction. Sailing is indeed a living poetry, much like the watches produced by the fine watchmaking brand, Corum. As a longstanding partner of the most prestigious regattas and leading sailors such as Loïck Peyron and Ben Ainslie, the development of a caliber combining a countdown function with a chronograph was a logical step for Corum. This has now been accomplished in the new Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Regatta, equipped with a regatta function entirely developed by Corum. Embodying all the classic features of the Admiral’s Cup collection created in 1960, the new Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Regatta model powerfully reaffirms Corum’s fundamental triptych: top-flight mechanics combining technical innovation and grand watchmaking traditions; a DNA firmly anchored in the sailing world; as well as a strong and instantly recognizable design

The Golden Bridge

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 2:32:38 PM in Corum (30)

Corum Golden Bridge watch is a mechanical watchmaking masterpiece that runs on a specially designed mechanism utterly unique in the haute horlogerie world. The Golden Bridge name finds its origins in its extraordinary manually wound mechanism that places its components on a single bridge made of 18 gold. The wondrous workings of the movement can be seen through its equally unique display case made of sapphire crystals on both sides. The original form of this model was designed by renowned independent watchmaker Vincent Calabrese. The equally accomplished haute de gamme movements and complications specialist firm, Vaucher, constructed and reengineered the baton movement of the timepiece, strengthening critical areas and providing measures to prevent damage due to overwinding. Pieced together through strong collaborations and stringent quality standards, Corum’s Golden Bridge is a modern work of art – mechanically and aesthetically.

Corum: Not Just Modern; Ultra-Modern

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 3:41:01 AM in Corum (30)

One thing distinctive about Corum as a watchmaking brand is that it knows what it is doing – even when nobody else could put their hands on the brand’s avant-garde designs. This year, Corum once again heralds a new chapter in the history of watchmaking with its newest addition to the collection, the Ti-Bridge Automatic Dual Winder, which bears the automatic CO 207 caliber. The movement which was designed, developed and patented by Corum has a dual winder system and derives its energy from two interconnected inline oscillating weights – a breakthrough innovation in the world of horology. With its new manufacture movement, fresh titanium case, and revolutionary winding system, the model remains true to Corum’s signature affinity to linear architecture. The linearity of the movement and the case is further accented by the watch’s tonneau shape and intrinsic transparency that are the marks of identity for Corum’s T-Bridge collection.

Setting the Face of Time

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 12:14:35 PM in Corum (30)

A myriad of world-renowned models, one tradition of masterful innovation, and one unmistakable name that goes with it – Corum. This inventive and tenacious Swiss watch company, established in 1955 by Rene Bannwart and Gaston Ries at La Chauz-de-Fonds, has paved new design trails in watchmaking with its uniquely engineered and designed timepieces. One of the brand’s earliest designs, released in 1957, was the Golden Tube model, which was literally a tube of gold fitted with a movement. This became the basis for Corum’s famous Golden Bridge model. In 1964, the coin watch was unveiled and became a favorite among numerous U.S. presidents and famous personalities. It was an ultra-flat movement with no back cover set on an authentic $20 Double Eagle gold coin. In 1970 came the Feather watch, composed of genuine bird feathers, and six years later the Rolls Royce watch, which was the first ever collaboration of its kind. Half a century after its birth, Corum continues to surprise the world with its creativity and watchmaking prowess.

The Emblem of Mastery

The emblem of Corum watch, a key pointing skywards, is a symbol of adventurous curiosity, tenacity, exploration, inventiveness, and the boldness that is required to gain mastery over time. This is the insignia that stands for the watchmaking brand founded by Rene Bannwart and Gaston Ries at La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1955.  Innovative and daring, the company is recognized even among its peers as one of the most creative in the industry. The Admiral’s Cup, the brand’s trademark model, was launched in 1966 by the second generation of Bannwart watchmakers. Over the fruitful years of Corum, this model has grown into a flagship collection of classic and elegant timepieces that endure tough conditions and are mainstays in the international sports scene. This year, Corum welcomes the newest addition to the set – the Admiral’s Cup AC One 45 Chronograph, which comes with an innovative case but still inspired by the nautical, twelve-sided bezel of the original 1966 design.

Corum's Bridges of Achievement

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 5:45:47 AM in Corum (30)


Since its foundation in 1955, Corum has populated the horologie world with its high-quality watch collections containing distinct and innovative designs, and equipped with urbane and unique mechanical movements housed in a rectangular parallelepiped section called Bridge Movement. Being the earliest movement, the Golden Bridge Movement is composed of 140 components, with bridges and plates of fine gold, carefully assembled under the nine-step construction process. This legendary bridge movement gave way to the development of the Ti-Bridge Movement launched in 2009. Mainly centered on titanium, it is composed of 137 components assembled in the 10 steps of production.  Formally termed as “Caliber CO 007”, the bridge takes advantage of the lightness of titanium metal and the exceptional technical characteristics of the design. These bridges give unmatched quality and performance to your watch. Embedded in every Corum watch, which is carefully checked both in the technical and esthetic aspects, are the bran's characteristic high-end technology and superior design quality.

Diamonds on the Bridge

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 11:33:41 PM in Corum (30)


Corum is known for coming up with oddly fresh concepts for its luxury timepieces. Miss Golden Bridge is one of its stunningly peculiar creations. Inspired by the aesthetic characteristics of the golden bridge, this ladies’ wrist watch carries a dial on a thin strip of semi-exposed movement encased in diamond-studded white or red gold case held in place by black, crocodile leather straps. The narrow strip of precious metal that supports the hands of the watch and the movement mechanism itself resembles a stretch of bridge made of gold. The crystal that protects this delicate contraption is sapphire with anti-reflective treatment. The case is mounted with as many as 90 pieces of fine diamond and engraved by the Corum key logo. With Miss Golden Bridge, Corum wants to prove that there are no limits to what the mind’s eye can conceive even in an exacting craft like watchmaking.
