Sophisticated and offbeat, 26-year-old photographer Juliette Jourdain and Corum are pairing up in a completely Bubble spirit and adding a new Bubblesque creation to the watch brand’s iconic collection. Between the eccentricity and captivating creativity of the young photographer and the legendary, effervescent Bubble, this is an obvious partnership.
Once again, Juliette enthralls with her unbridled inventive spirit, her boundless imagination and her ability to come up with equally wonderful and attractive characters and skillfully immortalizes them on paper. Whether staging herself or calling on models, her portraits are fascinating and leave us in awe of her creative world.
The new Bubble, covered by its traditional, timeless sapphire dome, charms us with its pure colors. The dial depicts a self-portrait of the talented photographer, showcasing her keen artistic flair. The portrait is breathtaking – it exudes purity with her intense eyes and delicately defined features. On the dial, raised crystalline diamond drops run down the young woman’s face. Devoid of numerals and markers and featuring only very discreet hands, this highly refined Bubble is nonetheless captivating. The pure white vulcanized rubber strap forms a delicate contrast with the metallic grey of the stainless steel.
Launched in 2000, Corum’s Bubble – now a Swiss watchmaking icon – has injected a wave of fun and youthfulness into the La Chaux-de-Fonds watch brand for almost 20 years, while proudly preserving its innovative spirit.
26-year-old Juliette Jourdain is a young Paris-based photographer who holds a degree from the EFET school of photography. She first ventured into the vast and abstract world of art at a very young age through drawing and painting. She then went on to specialize in photography, which brought together her various passions.
Drawing her inspiration from her own imagination, she takes photographs like she would paint a canvas to depict her dream world. Expressing a primarily illustrative eccentric vision, her portraits – for the most part self-portraits – deal with creating characters in the fashion world.
The Bubble Jourdain features a 42-hour power reserve and an automatic winding system with hours, minutes and seconds functions. The case diameter measures 42 mm and is made of stainless steel with a domed sapphire crystal with antireflective treatment covering the case front. The watch is water resistant to 100 meters and is fitted with a white vulcanized rubber strap.
