Corum- Golden Tourbillon Panoramique

Surely the most impressive Corum timepiece of the next several years will be this new Golden Tourbillon Panoramique Grey Sapphire watch. As a limited edition of just five pieces, the watch will embody a very high degree of complication from a manufacturing standpoint. It is also imbued with a significant level of luxury.
What is interesting here is the application of gray PVD on the sapphire giving it that special look. The movement is a manually wound tourbillon based movement with a long 90 hours of power reserve. As you can see, the movement mainplate and bridges are all in sapphire! Something truly remarkable from a practical and aesthetic standpoint. The rest of the watch case is in 18k white gold with 309 diamonds decorating most every surface. Plus, the watch case has four sapphire crystals to help appreciate the movement from any angle. It is really a nice combination of luxury indulgence and mechanical intrigue. Expect prices to make your skin as light as the gray sapphire of the watch.
