With the new La Grande Vie collection, Corum presents an accessible luxury watch collection with an elegant, classic design. La Grande Vie adopts all the Corum codes by considering them in the light of permanent collections and timeless pieces, making them aesthetically accessible to experienced collectors and first-time buyers.
As of now, three versions from this new collection are available. Its 42 mm titanium case houses the Swiss Made automatic calibre (SW300), visible through a sapphire crystal case back. Their dials will probably attract the most attention, with a shimmering sunray finish in blue, red and green tones that magnifies each ray of light. From the centre to the flange, this sunray finish gives the piece a radiant look.
Baton hour markers are stretched out on the dials, which Corum wanted to be more elongated and thin than average, accentuating the “sunray” effect reflected by La Grande Vie. They come with “Dauphine” hands – a highly “classical” feature of the traditional fine watchmaking.
The 12’ hour marker is replaced by a large key – an oversized Corum logo – in places of the name “Corum” on the dial. The La Grande Vie follows the footsteps of Corum’s timeless collections, such as the Chargé d’Affaires. This collection from the 1950s has long attracted watch enthusiasts for its mastery of classic watchmaking codes.
