The lucky winner of the WorldTempus-Corum contest of January 2018 is:
- Mrs Adella Gonzalez, from Covington, USA
She won the Corum Bubble 47 Digital watch, worth CHF 1,500.
The first major change is that the diameter: The brand new releases all quantify 47mm wide and an impressive 18.8mm top. Smartly, though, the lugs are curved and short to enable a close fit to the wrist. Of the 18.8mm of elevation, 8mm of that is down to the sapphire crystal alone. This is seemingly no mean accomplishment: getting a perfect finish on a Sapphire part of this depth, curvature, and necessary consistency is real obstacle. Corum accomplishes this unusual impact by starting out with a block of crystal clear and grinding it into a bubble-like shape, prior to polishing to complete clarity.To get the most out of the attribute, the designers of this Corum Bubble watches, chose to match the timepieces using “Op-art” (optical-art) dials. These clever patterns give the sense of movement, in addition to depth and shadow. Although flat, the dials have a level of presence. Both watches use Super-LumiNova on the hands. The magnifying sapphire crystal has such an affect on the horizontal dials that they seem to be aggressively domed themselves. With this particular design leaping out of the watch, it’s a lot easier to understand why this crazy contraption has so many fans all over the world. Both watches are fitted with rubber straps topped with leather, with a buckle fitting their personal case finishes. The straps start out at 24mm between the lugs and taper to 20mm at the buckle.
