Giving free rein to its formidable creative audacity, Corum blends two of the most captivating figures from Chinese mythology – the dragon, a creature symbolizing life and power and the phoenix, a legendary bird which is considered a good omen. Gathered around the exclusive Corum baguette movement, they promise prosperity.
Gathered around the famous hand-wound CO 113 movement, the duo embraces the baguette movement in an exciting body-to-body. This mechanical masterpiece embodies both the impressive expertise of the brand and its insatiable quest for linearity.
Built along a vertical axis, it is extended by the crown at 6 o’clock, which is perfectly aligned in order to accentuate this exceptional construction. Visually stunning in each and every detail, it features a red gold mainplate and bridges, including an upper bridge bearing the hand-engraved Corum signature.
To breathe life into the dragon and phoenix, red gold was first poured into a mold to form an initial rough outline. The fascinating engraving work then began. Playing with the irregular thickness of the gold plate, the craftsman patiently sculpted the material by meticulously creating striking three-dimensional effects.
The fascinating encounter between the mythical creatures and the legendary caliber finds a worthy setting in an elegant tonneau-shaped case. The latter is made of 5N 18K red gold and fitted with four sapphire crystals on the front, back and both sides, thus creating a mesmerizing transparency that further enhances the dragon’s three-dimensional perspective effects.
The precious and refined Corum Golden Bridge Dragon & Phoenix is also interpreted in a jewelry version, where the red gold case is adorned by 396 round-cut diamonds (approx. 4.15 carats). The hands are colored in anthracite.
