Swiss luxury watch brand has created a special edition watch collection in partnership with Djibril Cissé, the former footballer known as “The Lion”.
Djibril Cissé already had a Bubble 52 watch, a personal piece that he regularly wears. Therefore, the Bubble 52 immediately became the starting point for creating his own model.
A skull, exclusively designed for him by Corum, can be found at the centre of his Bubble 52. Made out of gold and modelled on the artist’s personal watch, the number “9” is visible on its jaw. It is the only reference to his past as a top athlete, the number on his striker jersey which he wore in all his matches.
The dial has no hands – a deliberate choice to give the skull the fiercest possible traits, occupying almost the entire dial. Instead, Corum used an off-centre hour display called “Magical”. It rests on a flange with a complete timer and two red circles sweeping over it.
The biggest one indicates the hours and the other indicates the minutes. The watch will be released in a limited edition of 88 pieces and powered by an automatic caliber offering 65 hours of power reserve.
