The "Golden Bridge", produced in 1977, with a manual winding of 18 karat gold, has left a lasting impression on the history of watchmaking. Vincent Calabrese, a young watchmaker, presented his immature movement, whose wheelset was arranged in a line, at Corum´s. The watchmakers of Corum were very impressed with the idea, acquired it and began with the expansion of the construction. This resulted in a 30-millimeter-long bar arrangement with three overlapping golden bridges, a masterpiece of micromechanics. The production required the highest precision craftsmanship and 85 working steps. In 2005 a new edition of the "Golden Bridge" was presented. The new developed bar arrangement is significantly larger than the model from the 1970s. The "Golden Bridge" can be chosen in platinum, in yellow, rose or white gold, the movement is always made from the same material as the case.
On the occasion of its 30th anniversary in 2010, Corum launched the "Golden Bridge" as a Tourbillon - with the smallest Tourbillon cage in the world! Since 2011, Corum has been integrating the world's only automatic movement system (CORUM caliber CO-313) in its "Golden Bridge Automatic", a further milestone in the company's successful history.
The leader model of Corum is undoubtedly the Admiral's Cup. The first models of the Admiral's Cup came on the market already in the ´60s and caused a big sensation with their rectangular case. The nautical flags in place of the usual hour markings, create a reference to the Navy. Waterproofness is ensured in the steel or gold cases or in the titanium version. In 1992 the model "Marée" appeared, the watch is indicating the tide change, and was made especially for sailors.
The Admirals Cup Marée provides further key information such as the lunar phase, flow strength and the exact time of high and low water. The tidal system is the result of a three-year development phase. The exact tide clock was developed in cooperation with the Geneva Observatory and the hydrographic and oceanographic service of the French navy. As a successor model appeared the model Admiral's Cup Tides, with an ETA automatic movement.
As a longtime partner of prestigious regattas and prestigious high-sailers such as the Olympic champions Ben Ainslie and Loïck Peyron, both Corum ambassadors, it made sense to the Haute Horlogerie brand Corum, to develop their own chronograph with countdown counter. With the Admiral's Cup AC-One 45, Corum presents a new designed regatta feature. The Admiral's Cup collection now enjoys cult status among all sailors and other lovers of extreme sports.
