  • Catalogue Essay

    Corum’s Golden Bridge wristwatch was a departure from the norm in horology where an effort was made to encase movements within sturdy cases not only to protect them, but also the general attitude of the time was the movement was secondary to the artistry of the case design. Vincent Calabrese a self-taught watchmaker and restorer felt that the movement was the “inner beauty” of the watch, and began to design a watch in which the movement was front and center. The Golden Bridge was released at Basel in 1980 and still has a strong following today with different iterations from the Golden Bridge Round, to the gem-set Golden Bridge.

    The present example from the 1990s is in well-preserved condition and a true bridge between form and function. The watch is an elegant bracelet, while at the same time technical marvel.
