“At Corum, we believe in pushing the boundaries of luxury, and the Golden Bridge Dragon is a testament to our commitment to creativity, craftsmanship and individual expression. This bespoke creation empowers collectors to carry a piece of their unique story on their wrists,” said Boon Chong Soon, Vice President at Corum.

Bridging Cultures And Worlds

Eye-catching, elegant and powerful, the Golden Bridge Dragon transcends traditional boundaries, serving as a cultural bridge between East and West. Corum has ingeniously integrated the aesthetic of the Swiss watch movement with the rich tapestry of East Asian culture, resulting in a captivating expression of artistry.

Corum puts the power in the hands of consumers by offering an exclusive selection of Pantone™ colours for the gold dragon, and these colours can be galvanized for a lustrous sheen or hand-painted to achieve a realistic appearance. 

Embarking On Artistry

The intricate journey begins with the process of casting, where a mold serves as the canvas for the infusion of gold. This step is crucial in creating the exquisite sculpture that forms the essence of the Golden Bridge Dragon. Through skilled craftsmanship, each piece is carefully retouched by hand, ensuring a flawless and captivating design.

The process then moves to polishing, setting and colouring, a step where meticulous attention is given to every detail. This stage is a demonstration to Corum’s commitment to achieving perfection in both form and finish. Colours are infused with precision, enhancing the visual allure of the Golden Bridge Dragon. 

Next, comes the art of seamlessly integrating the sculpture into the product. This involves a delicate balance of space among the movement, hands, and glass components. The goal is to create a harmonious fusion that not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also ensures the optimal functionality of the timepiece.

About Golden Bridge Collection

Launched in 1980, the Golden Bridge is Corum’s flagship that is a testament to the beautiful coexistence of mechanics and art. An original creation where the linear movement forms both the calibre and most of the piece’s dial, placed in the centre of a transparent sapphire crystal case, the Golden Bridge has set a benchmark with its baguette movement that is in a class by itself. Of rare aesthetic audacity, the baguette movement remains to be a unique construction unrivalled in the world of watchmaking. Corum has consistently reimagined this legendary concept over the years, with the releases of a revitalized tonneau case and round case, exemplifying the ongoing evolution of this iconic timepiece.

About CORUM  

Founded in 1955, Corum represents creative and daring watchmaking. Corum uses an approach free of dogmas that enables a reconceptualization of movement construction, its casing, and the artistic crafts that brighten the dial. Behind the many technical achievements (baguette movement) and aesthetic achievements (Coin Watch, Feather, Bubble), Corum continues the tradition of high-quality watchmaking that is ahead of its time.  

Corum, established in La Chaux-de-Fonds, is opening itself up to the contemporary, street art, and classical art worlds, and in doing so attracting the attention of various trendsetters. At once disruptive yet respectful of its watchmaking heritage, Corum maintains its status as a niche brand aimed at demanding collectors of unconventional timepieces. Corum’s current pillars include five collections that embody its vision of 21st-century watchmaking: Admiral, Bubble, Golden Bridge, Heritage, and Lab.  


CORUM, famous for the aesthetic appeal of its models and its technical excellence in the field of high-end watchmaking, proudly announces the launch of two limited editions in honor of the Year of the Dragon. These exceptional creations reflect CORUM’s ongoing commitment to creativity and boldness, core values that have been ingrained in the house’s DNA since its founding in 1955.

Year of the Dragon 

The dragon, a powerful symbol in Chinese culture, embodies power, nobility, honor, luck, and success. To pay homage to this legendary creature, CORUM presents two limited editions of its iconic Bubble model. The Bubble collection, inspired by Severin Wunderman from an experimental diver’s watch in the 1960s, has become an undisputed icon of watchmaking thanks to its radical design and domed crystal.

Bubble 47 Dragon 

The “Bubble Dragon” watch embodies an enchanting fusion between watchmaking and Chinese cultural heritage, celebrating the lunar calendar and, more specifically, the majestic sign of the dragon. Inspired by the deep-seated beliefs associated with the Chinese dragon, such as power, nobility, honor, luck, and success, this watch embodies symbolic elegance.

The centerpiece of this creation is its exceptionally elaborate dial, which narrates the captivating legend: “When dragons hear thunder, they rise; The clouds are coming, and having all formed, the dragons ascend and thus circulate in the sky.” The dial evokes a deep night sky, with a black sunray base evoking the night, adorned with a delicate representation of the moon made of mother-of-pearl. Above the dial, between mystical black clouds, a golden dragon hovers majestically, symbolizing the power and grace associated with this legendary creature.

Bubble 47 Dragon Eye 

Inspired by the richness of Chinese mythology, this exceptional piece finds its uniqueness in the meticulous depiction of the dragon’s eye on its dial, an emblematic representation of strength and power. This iconic detail is not simply machined, but meticulously crafted by hand using the metal casting technique. This artisanal approach makes it possible to create an unbeatable relief, impossible to achieve by conventional means. Each eye is then meticulously colored, while the golden scales are revealed by hand, giving each watch an artistic singularity. The sublime details of this exceptional work are magnified by the domed sapphire crystal characteristic of the Bubble collection, offering a magnifying effect that allows you to fully appreciate the finesse and precision of this watchmaking work of art. The “Bubble Dragon Eye” embodies the essence of craftsmanship and mythology.

Admiral 42 Ceramic Carbon & Gold - SG Limited Edition

Press release Pictures Technical Sheet


Swiss watchmaker CORUM, known for its rich history in Fine Watchmaking since 1955, has once again ventured into uncharted waters to bring innovation and elegance to its iconic Admiral collection. The brand’s latest endeavor involves incorporating ceramics into its Admiral timepieces, drawing inspiration from the ever-fascinating maritime world.

Ceramic has long been a trusted companion in the maritime realm due to its exceptional properties. It has been widely used in various nautical applications, such as protecting boat surfaces from the corrosive effects of saltwater and preventing hull fouling caused by the accumulation of algae and shells. In addition to these protective attributes, ceramic proves to be an environmentally friendly choice compared to traditional products.

Transcending its maritime roots, ceramic has found a home in the world of high-end watchmaking, offering a plethora of advantages. Beyond its striking aesthetic appeal, characterized by deep and enduring black and white hues, ceramic boasts a unique tactile softness. Comprising aluminum oxide (Al2O3) and zirconium oxide (ZrO2), this material is notably lighter, approximately 20-25%, than the industry-standard 316L steel alloy. Furthermore, its high hardness level makes it exceptionally scratch-resistant and resistant to oxidation.

For these reasons CORUM, is proud to embrace ceramic in its latest offering—the Admiral 42 Ceramic collection. This collection exudes sophistication with the Ceramic & Gold models, showcasing the harmonious fusion of classic luxury and cutting-edge technology. But that’s not all; CORUM has taken a bold and unconventional step by introducing two models featuring a tribute to the vibrant and dynamic urban culture found at the world’s busiest ports.

Touch of Nobility and Maritime Excellence

In a daring blend of materials, CORUM unveils an exquisite timepiece that seamlessly marries ceramic and 18K 5N gold. This poetic creation not only showcases CORUM’s audacity but also brings a touch of nobility to the wrist.

Available in two stunning variations with either a black or white case and matching vulcanized rubber strap, this exceptional timepiece is designed to make a statement. The gold-colored accents adorning the indexes and hands add an unmistakable touch of elegance, creating a visual masterpiece that is sure to captivate watch enthusiasts worldwide.

But a watch designed for sailing must also excel in water resistance, and CORUM’s ceramic models do not disappoint. These remarkable timepieces are water-resistant to a depth of 50 meters, ensuring they can withstand the rigors of maritime adventures. Embodying the brand’s maritime spirit, the indexes on this watch feature the iconic nautical pennants that are unique to the Admiral collection, paying homage to the world of seafaring.

Artistic Expression Meets Horological Innovation

Drawing inspiration from the vibrant and colorful world of  bustling seaports, where graffiti thrives as a form of artistic expression, CORUM introduces two captivating additions to the Admiral 42 family.

The first of these extraordinary creations is the Admiral 42 “TAG,” available in an exclusive limited edition of just 50 pieces. This timepiece boasts a stealthy, full-black look, featuring a sand-blasted ceramic case and a sleek black NATO strap. However, the true magic of the CORUM “TAG” edition unfolds at nightfall, as the discreetly placed CORUM TAG logo on the dial reveals itself in luminescent splendor. By day, it remains virtually invisible, only to surprise and delight in the dim light of evening, making it the perfect companion for stylish nocturnal adventures.

The second model in the collection, crafted in white ceramic, takes a bolder approach to design. Indexes and hands are playfully adorned with multicolored paint, bearing the artistic traces of fresh inspiration. This watch is a canvas of creativity and a testament to CORUM’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of traditional watchmaking. It embraces the imperfections of art, turning them into a unique and eye-catching statement.

The heart of these exceptional timepieces beat with the precision of the C0 395 automatic movement, offering 40 hours of power reserve. With a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, this watch keeps time with unrivaled accuracy.  The crowning achievement is its sapphire crystal case back, allowing a mesmerizing glimpse into the intricate mechanics of the movement—a true testament to CORUM’s commitment to craftsmanship and innovation.

The Admiral 42 Ceramic collection combines the brand’s rich heritage with innovation, bringing to life a range of timepieces that are not only stylish but also ruggedly resilient. This collection reaffirms CORUM’s commitment to pushing boundaries and redefining the horological landscape.
