Corum is unveiling three limited editions of its famous Bubble: the ‘Big Bubble Stop’. These pieces are the fruit of the brand’s first participative challenge held eight months ago, ‘Customise Your Bubble’. Such was the success of the initiative that the Big Bubble Stop, featuring a genuine reflective dial, will be produced as a series of 88 pieces instead of the unique piece as originally intended.
The Bubble Stop is a symbol of Corum’s open-mindedness. Placing the focus on transparency and injecting new creative energy, the Chaux-de-Fonds brand introduced a unique watchmaking experience with ‘Customise Your Bubble’, which directly involved fans of the brand in Corum’s creative process.
The Bubble Stop is first and foremost a highly original piece. Based on a design suggested by a lover of the brand, Jérôme Barbier, Corum developed this model, making its dial from the same reflective material as authentic Swiss traffic signs, which are renowned as being the best in the world. Its honeycombed surface also recalls the first limited editions in 2015, which have now all sold out. Its ‘tecno’ strap adopts this same spirit, with the technical material also offering incomparable resistance.
The three models are available in a 42 mm, 47 mm or 52 mm titanium case covered by the famous domed sapphire crystal, giving the wrist a strong identity that is in tune with its “STOP” dial while proving particularly lightweight. Finally, the Bubble Stop features a sapphire case back through which the CO403 movement can be admired, with its 65-hour power reserve.
