BUB­BLE 47 SWOOSH CEN­TRAL TOURBILLON

DA MAN - Caliber - - WATCHLAB -

This year, one of the most fa­mous com­pli­ca­tions has been given a new lease of life with a con­tem­po­rary touch, as the Bub­ble col­lec­tion from Co­rum in­tro­duces its first cen­tral tourbillon. Dubbed the Bub­ble 47 Swoosh Cen­tral Tourbillon, the watch pro­vides am­ple space for the tourbillon to fully ex­press it­self. Then there’s the cen­tral po­si­tion of the tourbillon, a rel­a­tively com­plex tech­ni­cal choice, since it re­quires an in­line move­ment con­struc­tion.

Of par­tic­u­lar note, the ab­sence of hands on this watch is also note­wor­thy. The hours and min­utes are moved to the flange, in­di­cated by two tri­an­gu­lar mark­ers: One in black that in­di­cates the min­utes, with a se­cond one in­di­cat­ing the hours, and last but not least, the tourbillon it­self in­di­cates the sec­onds. As a fi­nal touch, there’s this Bub­ble’s domed sap­phire crys­tal. The brand has fre­quently played on the mag­ni­fy­ing ef­fect in the cen­ter to cre­ate dif­fer­ent vis­ual ef­fects— an­other rar­ity for a piece with a tourbillon— pro­vid­ing this model with an ur­ban, sporty and con­tem­po­rary char­ac­ter.
