In the Year 2000, CORUM introduced the Bubble, an oversized wristwatch with an expanded glass. A so radical design that the timepiece has become a must-have of the new millennium. It bridges the gap between two universes, between watchmaking and pop culture.
the model chosen for this collaborative venture is a milestone piece, an obvious creation, a purely technical piece of fine watchmaking, featuring an (almost) traditional complication: Bubble Central Tourbillon.
An almost conventional complication, in fact, because this tourbillon, which features a traditional architecture, is brought back from the periphery to the center. And this sidestep turns the whole architecture of the movement and the display upside down: everything is reversed, from the mechanical show in the center highlighted by the Bubble's dome, to the display - no hands, just indicators - around the edges
Label Noir went for a different approach. Very graphic finishes, deceptively minimalist, because the play of nuances is complex, with anthracite and argentic hues, matte finishes, bracelet (matte textured black rubber), case (grade 5 titanium treated with black ADLC), bezel (grade 5 titanium coated with satin black ADLC), right down to the plate. No longer an assembly of different parts, this watch is a whole: one continuous stripe with a bubble on top.
A few more dashes of steel to enhance the dial pattern, numerals and display discs, and to refocus the eyes on the central body, the beating heart, the tourbillon.
Finally, what must be read is highlighted with a few strokes of color contrast: the acid green, Label Noir's signature - the hour-minute indicators, the dual mark and the strap stitching.
