Corum Presents Ti-Bridge Power Reserve Watch

Sep 12, 2011
The world of fine watchmaking welcomes the new Corum Ti-Bridge Power Reserve watch. The timepiece stands out from the crowd due to its signature titanium case and its horizontal baguette movement fitted with four black PVD-coated bars.

The heart of the new Corum watch is the Caliber CO107 baguette movement that animates the hour and minute hands and a power-reserve indicator. It should be mentioned that this is the first power-reserve model to join the collection. The 25-jewel movement is oscillating at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour.

The grade 5 titanium case (52.5 x 42.5mm) is mounted on a black rubber strap fitted with a folding clasp with two security pushers. The case-construction is 50-meter water-resistant.

The dial of the Ti-Bridge watch is also rendered in titanium. The hour and minute hands and the power-reserve display are provided with a luminescent coating to guarantee great dial readability under reduced light conditions. The face of the watch is protected by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating.

The power-reserve function is presented via a linear display. To make it possible, the movement incorporates a satellite gear train. You can see it if you look at the timepiece from the side along the 9-3 o’clock axis. It is not visible when you look at the model from the front. The module is worth special attention as it is built with a few specific features. One of them is a differential gear system with three wheels. One of the wheels represents an off-centered “planetary wheel”. Depending on the direction it is rotating, the wheel spins either on its own axis, or around the axis of the two other wheels. This way it connects the barrel on the one side and the winding stem on the other to the power-reserve indicator. This smart construction required a minimum of space.

The power-reserve indicator is found on a graduated sliding gear in phosphate nickel. The brand’s watchmakers opted for this material, along with a LIGA manufacturing process (implying Lithography, Electroplating and Molding), to give birth to parts that boast far more precise tolerances than those produced with help of conventional mechanical machining. This way, the watchmakers provide the supreme precision of the 3-day power-reserve display.

The Corum Ti-Bridge Power Reserve watch is available in a limited edition of 700 pieces at the price of 17, 500 US dollars.
