What Makes Corum Special?

Corum is a Swiss luxury watchmaker that delivers high-quality and exclusive timepieces. It is famous for its limited-edition watches and bold, artistic designs that make each timepiece more of a sculpture or jewelry than a wristwatch.

History of Corum

Corum, more formally, Montres Corum Sàrl, was founded in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, 1955. The brand was devised by Gaston Ries and his nephew, Renee Bannwart. The first timepiece produced by Corum came a year after its foundation. The ascension to fame of Corum came early, in 1964. The firm presented the Coin Watch, a watch crafted on top of an authentic gold coin, namely, a $20 Double Eagle Coin. The model was worn by numerous U.S. Presidents and personalities, such as prominent Nobel Prize laureates. Corum watches continued to deliver interesting, artistic approaches in the watchmaking industry. For example, the Romvlvs featured Roman numerals engraved on the bezel rather than the dial. The Feather was composed of genuine feathers, and the Tabogan had an ingenious mechanism that allowed the watch to be flipped upright, turning the wristwatch into a table clock. After the passing of the two founders and the president, Corum was purchased by the Citychamp Watch & Jewellery Ltd in 2013.

A Corum watch is as much as an art piece as it is a timepiece. The brand blends supreme aesthetic appeal with superb technical expertise. Corum is not only about tradition. It also embraces modernity to deliver luxury watches that raise the bar of aesthetics.
