Conceived by watchmaker Vincent Calabrese in 1980, the Corum Golden Bridge Watch is now regarded as the iconic Corum timepiece. Equipped with a long, thin baguette movement, the Corum Golden Bridge Watch is available in a variety of forms and sizes, but always retains its original movement form. With the Corum Golden Bridge B113-02957 Watch, a statement is made - a cry of revolt, with its transparent case that apparently reveals everything, yet still holds the impression of mystery, causing people to wonder how it works.

The Corum Golden Bridge B113-02957 Watch features a transparent double anti-reflective sapphire crystal case, framed by rose gold ribs, studded with a rainbow hue of colourful precious stones. The ethereal character of the design is heightened by the slender in-line baguette movement, a revolutionary design that calls to mind the iconic Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California, United States Of America, though the design itself wasn't inspired by it. The precise but tiny automatic movement looks beautifully symmetrical in form.

In function, the Corum Golden Bridge B113-02957 Watch is solid, with a power reserve of 40 hours, and a CO113 manual winding that is sturdy, despite having 45 components in its movement. Shaped liked a column, the movement is rightly termed as 'in-line baguette'. It has a gold mainplate decorated with hand-engraved elements, and houses a balance with variable inertia, and a barrel with slipping spring. Thus, while the Corum Golden Bridge B113-02957 Watch looks simple, it's anything but, a true horological engineering marvel.

Description: Conceived by watchmaker Vincent Calabrese in 1980, the Corum Golden Bridge has since become the quintessential Corum timepiece. He conceived the idea of creating a movement with linear gear trains, mounted within a transparent exterior and isolated in space without any visible connection. This prodigiously slender, world-famous revolution was an immediate hit with connoisseurs and collectors of fine watches and earned Corum the title of an authentic watch manufacturer. Thirty years later, this now legendary movement remains a concentrated blend of fine watchmaking and a unique expression of the art of horology.
