First introduced in the year 2000, the Bubble is now Corum’s runaway bestseller. This iconic watch made its surprising return last year. Corum continues to celebrate its emblematic timepiece by introducing Bubble Spookies three new limited edition models for the spookiest night of 2016: the Bubble Skull, limited to 88 pieces, The Bubble Pirate limited to 188 pieces and the Bubble Voodoo, limited to just 38 pieces.
These references are presented in a 47 mm stainless steel with black PVD or stainless steel case topped by a massive, domed sapphire crystal. The new Corum Bubble Spookies are powered by the automatic movement CO 082, which beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, and provides 42 hours of power reserve. The watches are mounted on rubber straps, and sealed against the ingress of water to 100 meters of depth.
We actually debuted the Seafender versions of the Admiral’s Cup watches when the Seafender 47 Tourbillon GMT premiered in 2011. In 47mm wide, Corum Heart Watch Replica determined it was fitting at the yacht watch set to produce an aluminum-cased tourbillon. There was also an 18k red gold variant. While these Seafender Tourbillons are admittedly interesting, I simply see no business putting them inside of Admiral’s Cup-style cases. It isn’t an issue of good or bad though it is not for me, it is more a thing than it twists the DNA of the Admiral’s Cup set so much that it’s all but lost any meaning.On paper, the Corum Admiral’s Cup Chronograph Tourbillon 47 Seafender seems like a worthy idea. It’s a bunch of interesting features and slick materials such that the sum of its parts could actually be tremendously provocative. Instead, we’ve got a watch constructed such as a Cadillac that contrasts using an Abrams tanks. These worlds of aggressive luxury boating and high-end complications simply don’t meld together properly in my eyes.Rather than mate a tourbillon with a GMT complication, this Seafender marries a tourbillon and a chronograph – back with a dial for the date. Powering the watch is your caliber CO 398 automatic that’s fairly nice. If you recall what I said about the initial Corum Seafender view it had been that the movement view looked better than the dial. The caliber CO 398 is infrequent, being an automatic to get a tourbillon, also on top of that, it is a tourbillon that works at 4 Hz. The 60 second chronograph is column-wheel established, along with the dial includes a wonderful window to the tourbillon (with a Corum key logo on it). This dial is a whole lot more composed than the Seafender GMT, but that variant with the small round-cut diamonds really in the sub dials simply does not do it for me personally. Let me ask you, although I do feel that there’s a location for diamonds within an Admiral’s Cup situation (especially baguette-cut ones)… are they really helping anybody by being on the dial just like this?
