Miss Golden Bridge crowned at Watchfair
Laureate of the Watchfair, Corum won Friday May 8th, the award for Best Ladies Watch. The prize was awarded to the Corum Miss Golden Bridge Black Ceramic.
Acclaimed for its avant-garde aesthetics, the Miss Golden Bridge Black Ceramic conquered the jury. The design of its inline movement recognizable amongst all, amongst all definitely made it an icon.
The Watchfair award
First prize in the watch industry of Luxembourg, the Watchfair is organized by the magazine Premium and composed by a panel of nine experts, personalities of watchmaking and collectors. This first edition awarded no less than seven categories of watches, all of them from prestigious haute horlogerie brands.
An anniversary model
Launched at Baselworld this year, at the occasion of the 35th anniversary of the emblematic Golden Bridge movement, the Miss Golden Bridge Black Ceramic combines the substance of high horology and feminine elegance. This concentration of watchmaking know-how is staged in a new, slender, curved tonneau shaped case made of black ceramic. The technical challenge that confronts this material is high because the fineness of the ceramic case is against a large proportion of sapphire crystal. The case opened above, below but also on its sides, still plays many effects of transparency and allows the movement to be admired from all parts, through the sapphire glasses of the case.
The Corum’s historical legitimacy
In 2015, Corum celebrates the 35 years of the Golden Bridge. The design and conception of both the calibre and the case have of course evolved, whereas the spirit of the timepiece remains true to its roots. The latter are emotionally transcribed in a book dedicated to the mythical movement’s history.
Five years after the creation of the new case, the Golden Bridge remain at the forefront of the Corum stage. The Golden Bridge has now accumulated a total of 7 awards or nominations, all of which in the exclusive world of haute horlogerie. The Watchfair award is the latest one that shows the long standing appreciation for a watch playing a long term role in the world of Corum.
