Corum

Prestige Hong Kong - Tic Talk - - INDUSTRY | BUZZ -

A pow­er­ful striker for the French na­tional team and clubs around Europe, foot­baller Djib­ril Cissé is also an ac­tor, writer and mu­si­cian who has his own cloth­ing brand. Un­sur­pris­ingly, with those cos­mopoli­tan tastes, he’s also a col­lec­tor of Corum time­pieces, and his habit of post­ing pho­tos of the brand’s watches on so­cial me­dia gave Corum CEO Jérôme Biard the idea of work­ing with him. The re­sult is the Corum Bub­ble 52 Djib­ril Cissé. The Bub­ble was cho­sen as the ba­sis for the piece be­cause Cissé al­ready has one in his col­lec­tion, but this ver­sion has been given a dar­ing makeover, with a strik­ing skull de­sign dom­i­nat­ing the dial. To make the skull as fierce as pos­si­ble, the watch is free of hands, re­placed by an off- cen­tre hour dis­play fea­tur­ing two red cir­cles on the flange.
