This time, the famous watchmaking brand has joined its forces with a Canadian artist Elisabetta Fantone, who has created limited editions of Corum’s iconic Bubble. Elisabetta Fantone is an actress, painter, model and author, and her art work as gained much recognition across Canada and the U.S. Her style consists of recreating famous portraits a Pop Art style of the 50s, 60s, and 70s. The latest collaboration with Corum is inspired by Fantone’s latest collection of Mona Lisa inspired portraits, which goes hand in hand with Corum Bubble’s modern twist of vintage fashion.

Corum Bubble Elisabetta Fantone

Corum Bubble, an iconic model that can be easily distinguished for its protruding bubble-style sapphire crystal, slightly magnifies the watch face and brings 3rd dimension to the dial of the watch. The bubble creates an optical illusion which encapsulates the uniquely original designs, this time Fantone’s modern take on Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.

The tilted head and the familiar smile of Mona Lisa is counterbalanced by a white chest shrouded in a tapestry of vivid, colorful collage. Depending on the version, the wrist-borne miniature of Fantone’s work is framed by either a silver or vibrant purple watchcase that measures either 42mm or 47mm in diameter. The case is made from PVD-treated stainless steel, while the dial is made from brass. It houses the automatic movement Caliber CO 082, which provides indications for hours, minutes, and seconds. The mechanism beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and provides 42 hours of power reseve.

Corum Bubble Elisabetta Fantone watches are water resistant to 100 meters, and they’re mounted on white or blue leather straps with stainless steel tongue buckles. More info at corum.ch.

For the first time ever, Corum presents its emblematic Golden Bridge model with a round case, measuring 43mm in diameter.

The striking Golden Bridge watch, first unveiled by Corum exactly 36 years ago, is certainly the most illustrative of the brand.

In 2015, Corum revisited its highly popular Bubble watch, a range of timepieces that originally came out in 2000.

The original creation, designed by Severin Wunderman, was modeled after an experimental deep-sea dive watch from the 1960s, which had a huge domed crystal covering a dial. The upbeat, oversized Bubble, grabbed everyone’s attention thanks to its radical design, and a large, tall sapphire crystal evoking a bubble. Even though it was considered one of the most emblematic watches of the era, the Bubble watch was soon discontinued. It only made a couple of more appearances, in some very limited editions, before it made a major come back in 201...
