The Corum Bubbles goes mini size for maximum charm

Text: Gwen Ong

Even at only 17mm, this timepiece got the curves to thrill

 

We first got acquainted with the Corum Bubble in its XXL sizes—42mm, 47mm and 52mm and how our eyes popped at its bold design. Now add one more to the collection but in its most compact Bubble yet at a 17mm diameter. Dainty hands rejoice!

While the watch has shrunk considerably, its signature design ethos still remains. Like, a domed sapphire crystal, a round stainless steel case and a bubble-shaped crown with rubber grip. The 17mm version has a bezel set with stones to match the bracelets – so topaz on a turquoise bracelet, ruby on a red bracelet and diamonds on a brown bracelet, for a harmonious look. Also, thanks to the bubble-shaped sapphire crystal, which acts as a magnifying glass, the large hour and minute hands remain readable despite its mini size.

 

 

 

"In the past, we had already offered some rare Mini Bubble collections in 26mm," explains Jérôme Biard, CEO of Corum. "These are now our collectors' most sought-after pieces. With these new versions we wanted to preserve this unique dimension, with an exclusive limited edition that perpetuates the Mini Bubble collector spirit, while renewing the creative exercise by daring to go down to only 17mm."

Want one for yourself? The Mini Bubble watch will only be available as a series of 18 pieces for each colour. So fastest hands win!
