Get a menacing wrist presence with the Corum Bubble 47 Flying Tourbillon

The Corum Bubble collection has been an iconic one for the luxurious brand. Since its introduction in 2000, the timepieces have been long after for its unique selling point – the dome-shaped sapphire crystal, hence the ‘Bubble’. 


Interest may have waned five years after its debut but demand was never truly gone. In 2015, the collection was revived again with three models, which then eventually grew to 37 new styles last year including the Bubble 47 Flying Tourbillon.

The Corum Bubble 47 Flying Tourbillon features a 47mm 18k rose gold case. While we’d normally associate rose gold to be a feminine colour, in this case the hue lends a striking look to the timepiece with its menacing brass skull for the dial. Look a little closer and you’ll see a flying tourbillon concealed in the gaping jaw of the skull.


Made by Le Cercle des Horlogers, a Swiss firm based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, the automatic movement contains a micro-rotor for winding and it is finished with Corum’s signature key in 18k red gold. With a thickness of 18.55mm, you can bet the Corum Bubble 47 Flying Tourbillon is bound to draw attention. This one is for those who appreciate individualism in their preferred timepiece.
