Corum Blends Carbon And Gold For Cortina Watch 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Admiral 45 Tourbillon
Just 10 pieces are being made.
Singaporean watch retailer Cortina Watch continues its 50th Anniversary celebrations this year with another limited edition watch, this time a gold and carbon tourbillon from Corum.
The Corum Admiral 45 Tourbillon Cortina Watch 50th Anniversary Special Edition is the sixth of eight limited editions due this year, with pieces already released from Franck Muller, Patek Philippe, Chopard, H Moser & Cie and Blancpain.
The 45mm dodecagonal case of the 10-piece limited edition Corum is formed from a composite material combining carbon and 18K gold, which results in a unique appearance on each watch.
“In 1992, Cortina Watch and Corum first got together to launch a special edition timepiece to celebrate our 20th anniversary,” says Mr Jeremy Lim, CEO of Cortina Watch. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be able to collaborate again for our golden jubilee. This extraordinary creation is a wonderful testament to our treasured relationship, which has withstood the test of time.”
While the case mixes carbon and gold, the watch’s dial uses the contrast between gold and black materials to highlight its logo and tourbillon bridge.
The 10-piece limited edition Corum Admiral 45 Tourbillon Cortina Watch 50th Anniversary Special Edition is available now priced $90,000 SGD (approximately $62,600 USD), exclusively via Cortina’s boutiques.
