CORUM

Bub­ble Big Mag­i­cal

Golf Asia - - LUXE TIMEPIECES -

It hap­pens more and more of­ten: a friend of Corum who, from time to time, shares his favourites on In­sta­gram. When that friend is for­mer foot­baller known as “The Lion” Djib­ril Cissé and counts a to­tal of nearly 800,000 fol­low­ers on In­sta­gram. “The Lion” wanted a dar­ing watch, hence a skull, ex­clu­sively de­signed for him by Corum, can be found at the cen­tre of his Bub­ble 52. Made out of gold and mod­elled on the artist's per­sonal watch, the num­ber “9” is vis­i­ble on its jaw. It is the only ref­er­ence to his past as a top ath­lete, the num­ber on his striker jer­sey which he wore in all his matches. The dial has no hands, a de­lib­er­ate choice to give the skull the fiercest pos­si­ble traits, oc­cu­py­ing al­most the en­tire dial. In­stead, Corum used an of­f­cen­tre hour dis­play called “Mag­i­cal”. It rests on a flange with a com­plete timer and two red cir­cles sweep­ing over it. The big­gest one in­di­cates the hours and the other in­di­cates the min­utes. The watch will be re­leased in a limited edi­tion of 88 pieces and pow­ered by an au­to­matic cal­i­bre of­fer­ing 65 hours of power re­serve.
