CORUM Ti-Bridge Tourbillon Black Limited Edition

CORUM dresses its new Ti-Bridge Tourbillon with a black coat – color of understated elegance – for the Christmas celebrations. While the grey titanium version was presented with a polished case, the all black model features a satin and black PVD finish. The flange, the plate and the bridges crafted in « ARCAP » are coated with black ruthenium. The deep black entirety highlights the grey key of the flying tourbillon, emblem of the brand.

The new baguette movement topped with a flying tourbillon figured out as major novelty in 2010 in the Corum Bridges collection. Without upper bridge, the escapement beating at 21’600 vibrations per hour seems to be floating over the baguette movement. The whole is maintained by elements definitely considered as a unique esthetical signature of the Ti-Bridge; two “cross bars” made in “ARCAP” suspend the movement in the center of the case. A spectacular effect of weightlessness radiates from the timepiece.

Esthetical and technical prowess, the plate and bridges are also cut from “ARCAP”. This new alloy made of copper and nickel is completely non-magnetic, anti-corrosive and allows for complex finishing.
