The instantly recognizable Romvlvs models by CORUM boast an immediately obvious signature feature: hours translated into Roman numerals engraved on the bezel.
Introduced back in 2008 in a series of less than one hundred, the Romvlvs Retrograde Annual Calendar is no exception to this rule. The first annual calendar to enrich the brand range, this model houses an exclusive CORUM Haute Horlogerie movement. The annual calendar takes account of months of 30 or 31 days, meaning only one correction a year is required at the end of February.
The CO502 mechanical automatic movement is richly decorated with a snailed bottom plate, circular satin-brushed circumference, bridges adorned with Côtes de Genève and an oscillating weight engraved with the CORUM name.
This Haute Horlogerie model is distinguished by the addition of a retrograde date incorporated into the annual calendar, representing an alliance of two remarkable complications.
This Romvlvs Retrograde Annual Calendar watch is available with a white or 5N red gold case measuring 41 mm in diameter. Its subtle double-cambered shape is another signature characteristic of the Romvlvs design. Limited production of 50 pieces.
