EXCEPTIONALLY SLENDER

Nomos Glashütte has created watches that are versatile above or below deck, by or in the pool, on a surfboard, yacht, or lounger. The two new Aqua models from Nomos Glashütte are the perfect accompaniment this summer and beyond. The German watchmaking company is continuing the successful Aqua series with new watches for water in siren white – powered by Nomos’ highly precise neomatik caliber.

Both watches are still exceptionally slender, and elegant.

Their dials brighten up the Aqua series – and their wearers’ wrists. Blue hands and red minute markers are dashes of color on the pure white dial. These watches also tell the time after sunset thanks to glowing superluminova.

They are powered by the neomatik caliber DUW 3001, the highly innovative movement from Nomos Glashütte that has recently set a new standard for automatic watches. At only 3.2 millimeters in height, this caliber is exceptionally slender with a modern and outstandingly efficient construction.

It only takes a few motions of the arm to wind it fully. The pace-setting part of this caliber is the Nomos swing system, the company’s proprietary escapement. Ahoi neomatik siren white is available in a classic size of 36 millimeters, while Club neomatik siren white is a touch larger, with a 37-millimeter diameter.

Watches for men and women alike, in other words – the current models of the series, these new water-resistant timepieces come with a tailor-made textile strap in light gray, which is designed by Nomos Glashütte and woven to the company’s exact specifications in France.

It looks smart, dries quickly, and gives the watches a sporty elegance. While the surface of these straps is made to be robust, the finer weave on its inner side wears comfortably on the wrist. But all this is to come in summer: Ahoi neomatik siren white and Club neomatik siren white are available at selected retailers from July 2018.

BOLD CONTEMPORARY

BOLD CONTEMPORARY

Adding sparkle to summer, whether on the beach or on the town, the latest creations from luxury Swiss Maison Corum’s effervescent Bubble line are full of surprises. The women’s line is enhanced with mother-of-pearl, with the bold contemporary accent of Superluminova at the heart of the men’s line.

Created at the dawn of the third millennium in the year 2000, the Bubble line soared into the world of watchmaking like an UFO. Its unique appearance, resembling a saucer mounted on a sapphire dome, became indelibly ingrained in the collective unconscious. It boasted a disruptive design, which proved hugely successful and became a coveted watch for connoisseurs and collectors alike.

Tender pink, sky blue, iridescent white with flashy colors and a joyous spirit, these 42 mm diameter watches are sure to turn heads. These striking timepieces are fitted with an inner dial in summery fresh mother-of-pearl, with leaf-type hands exquisitely marking the time.

The 47 mm diameter of the Bubble men’s watch perfectly encapsulates the luminescent pulsations of Superluminova, a reflective material which is highly prized in watchmaking. A rebellious, exciting look in red and black, or a white model for a more tender effect, these iterations are sporty and water-resistant to 100 meters, and virtually unobtainable, with a limited series of only 88 individually numbered pieces.

This modern and sensual line created for trend-setting women and men is deeply ingrained with Swiss-made expertise. The Bubble’s arrival is as bracing as fresh sea air, accompanying every voluptuous moment, day or night.

Acknowledged both for the aesthetic appeal of its models and for its technical excellence, Corum is a brand that has preserved the time-honored values and expertise of fine watchmaking. Since 1955, Corum has adopted creativity and boldness as its guiding principles. It is pursuing the path traced by the founders, more loyal than ever to the iconic collections, while enriching them with a powerful modern touch bearing the hallmark of innovation and technical breakthroughs.
