Corum - Ti-Bridge Tourbillon

Corum Ti-Bridge Tourbillon

Contemporary high horology.

Press releaseCorum_327791_0

 



Launched in 2009, the Ti-Bridge wrote a new chapter in the company's history with the creation of a new line in Corum's collection and the advent of the second in-house caliber. A completely different and resolutely contemporary spirit of the baguette movement, the taut lines of the CO007 were highlighted with a set of two titanium “cross bars”.

In 2010, CORUM exalts its well-established expertise in the field of exceptional movements by offering a tourbillon version of this timepiece, the new caliber CO 022, created and developed by Corum. A real feat as it is a flying tourbillon; without upper bridge, the escapement beating at 21'600 vibrations per hour seems to be floating over the baguette movement. The entirety is maintained by elements definitely considered as a unique esthetical signature of the Ti-Bridge; two “cross bars” made in “ARCAP” suspend the movement in the center of the case. A spectacular effect of weightlessness radiates from the timepiece. Esthetical and technical prowess, the plate and bridges are cut from “ARCAP”. This new alloy made of copper and nickel is completely non-magnetic, anti-corrosive and allows for complex finishing. This futuristic material permits traditional decorations like satin-finish and chamfer, which contrasts with the two barrels' sun-brushed decoration. This mechanical hand-wound CO 022 movement is endowed with a 72-hour power reserve.

Water-resistant up to 50 meters, the tonneau-shaped case bears generous dimensions: 42.5 mm by 41.5 mm. Cut from titanium, the case gives pride of place to the caliber and its moving tourbillon, visible from all sides, including the case-back.

The Ti-Bridge Tourbillon will be available in a limited production of 99 pieces with a titanium case graced with alternating surface finishes – polished on top and satin-finished on the side. The model is delivered with two bracelets, one in black rubber and one in hand-stitched leather,. A second version in titanium with black PVD coating, the Black Ti-Bridge Tourbillon, will be issued in a limited edition of 33 pieces.
