CORUM Heritage Corum Lab 01

Corum has created a “Lab” collection where mechanics take precedence, in a disruptive, contemporary approach. The first two barrel-shaped series, each limited to 99 pieces, were launched on 13 November in Beijing.

Corum unveiled the first two creations on the 13 November at the Macao Centre. This date also marks the opening of a dedicated Corum store, currently the only one in China. This store in the heart of Beijing highlights the importance of the Chinese market for Corum, a territory where the most demanding collectors will discover, with Corum, creatively unparalleled Fine Watchmaking.

The first two “Heritage Corum Lab 01” models feature a barrel-shaped case made entirely of black DLC. The calibre that drives these two Heritage Corum Lab 01 watches is a “shape movement”, that is to say a movement that has been made to measure for the case, in contrast to a round movement that is placed in a differently-shaped case, which, for technical ease, is how the immense majority of watches are made. Here, the calibre and the case are closely intertwined, one moulding to the contours of the other.

Corum has opted for an openworked dial which allows for the CO 410 skeleton calibre that fits snugly in the case to be admired. The dial, reduced to its simplest expression, comes in grey anthracite enhanced with either red or white, depending on the version.

Enthusiasts will also note the micro-rotor, visible from the dial side, featuring a contemporary spiral finish to accentuate the “speed” effect when it begins to rotate.
