CORUM Black Ti-Bridge

CORUM Black Ti-Bridge

Among a selection of forty timepieces, which had already been chosen from a first round selection of more than a hundred novelties launched on the Swiss market between September 2008 and December 2009, the jury has awarded our Ti-Bridge with the Second Prize for the Watch of the Year 2009 award. This competition, organized by Ringier Romandie and Montres Passion magazine, is an essential event of the watch sector. Elected under conditions of total impartiality by renowned jury members, made up of professionals from the watchmaking industry, the Ti-Bridge confirms its reputation in the watchmaking world. Beside Vacheron Constantin’s model «Historiques American 1921», the First Prize winner, the Ti-Bridge stands out among the major references.

The award ceremony of the Watch of Year 2009 event took place at the Intercontinental Hotel in Geneva yesterday. Antonio Calce, in his capacity as CEO, received this prize before an audience consisting of 500 personalities from the Swiss watchmaking industry. He declared with satisfaction and emotion: “I am pleased to receive this award which reflects the pride in my teams, whose talent contributes to the value of Corum today. The Ti-Bridge perfectly embodies the philosophy of Corum; creativity, design and high watch-making content. This timepiece opens a new chapter in the already rich history of the company.”

This award is an important acknowledgment for our brand and a recognition of the repositioning strategy initiated in 2005. With the exclusive caliber designed, developed and assembled in-house and encased in the Ti-Bridge, Corum confirms its watchmaking expertise in high-end movements.

As a graphic designer, I'm fascinated by the crossroads between technology and aesthetics. Horology is one of these crafts, where art and engineering come together to produce mechanical wonders that grace the eye. WatchPaper was born from the desire to create an online tool where I can share my passion for watches.
