Corum has partnered with young photographer Juliette Jourdain to realize a new Bubblesque creation to the Swiss watch brand’s iconic Bubble watch collection.
Between the eccentricity and captivating creativity of the young photographer and the legendary, effervescent Bubble, this is an obvious partnership. Once again, Juliette enthrals us with her unbridled inventive spirit, her boundless imagination and her ability to come up with equally wonderful and attractive characters and skilfully immortalise them on paper. Whether staging herself or calling on models, her portraits are fascinating and leave us in awe of her creative world. The new Bubble, covered by its traditional, timeless sapphire dome, charms us with its pure colours.
The dial depicts a self portrait of the talented photographer, showcasing her keen artistic flair. The portrait is breathtaking – it exudes purity with her intense eyes and delicately defined features. On the dial, raised crystalline diamond drops run down the young woman’s face. Devoid of numerals and markers and featuring only very discreet hands, this highly refined Bubble is nonetheless captivating.
The pure white vulcanised rubber strap forms a delicate contrast with the metallic grey of the stainless steel.
Launched in 2000, Corum’s Bubble – now a Swiss watchmaking icon – has injected a wave of fun and youthfulness into the La Chaux-de-Fonds watch brand for almost 20 years, while proudly preserving its innovative spirit.
