The Golden Bridge returns in no less than two new modern, exclusive editions, decorated entirely in black, revealing a powerful and modern new look for this icon which was first presented forty short years ago.
Fashions change, yet the Golden Bridge remains. A unique piece that has gone against trends since its creation in 1980, today has been reinvented in the first of six architectural versions with an original aesthetic design. Further versions will be gradually revealed over the next months, but the first two have been unveiled now.
The pervasive presence of a black DLC treatment on its 43mm case, bezel, and buckle forms the basis of the design. All these components stand out with their depth, allowing for a stunning contrast with the baguette movement which, with its white or rose gold reflections, attracts all the light.
“The founding principle of the Golden Bridge is the emphasis on its baguette movement. Since 1980, the piece has been designed to attract all the attention”, explains the Corum team. “These new versions are the perfect example of this. Titanium and DLC bring depth and modernity to the casing, which holds within it this legendary calibre with strength and elegance”.
As sculptural as ever, the baguette movement once again proves both its versatility and its modernity. Here, it works alongside a structure developed specifically by Corum which embodies a geometry of overlapping bridges that evoke the most stunning masterpieces of human genius, notably the suspension bridges like the Golden Gate or Brooklyn Bridge. It is in total consistency with Corum’s artistic universe, its roots in La Chaux-de-Fonds, its historical attachment to art and its capacity to break free from watchmaking codes.
The two versions, white gold and rose gold, can be seen on the movement, hands, flange, crown and the screws which maintain the structure of both sides of the baguette movement. The rest of the covering is black. It’s the first time that Corum has conferred a black rubber bracelet, veined and engraved with the brand’s name, upon its Golden Bridge.
The rose gold version is available in a limited edition of 68 pieces.
Spirited and powerful, and resolutely geared towards the power of its architecture, the Golden Bridge Titane DLC is destined for an audience of collectors of contemporary, radical fine watchmaking.visit corum-watches.com
