Corum’s Ode to Heritage

The Corum Lab collection focuses on establishing a dialogue between the past and the future.

Following on the two limited-edition creations debuted in 2018, Corum has unveiled another two new additions to the Heritage Corum Lab 01 family, each limited to 99 pieces.

The latest Lab 01 models retain their distinctive barrel-shaped cases like their predecessors, but Corum has chosen to produce the cases for these new timepieces in Damascus steel – a first for the brand.

Instantly recognisable by its wavy pattern, Damascus steel is a type of alloy well known to knife and sword makers of the past.

Damascus steel is known for its exceptional hardness and resistance to shatter. Blades made from this material are sharper, stronger and more flexible than others.

The usage of Damascus steel serves as a nod to history, while the futuristic design of the Lab 01 embraces the experimental and modernistic approach to watchmaking that Corum stands for.

The Heritage Corum Lab 01 Damascus timepieces are driven by the calibre CO 410, a curved, barrel-shaped skeleton movement that has been designed specifically to fit the case. The dial is accented with blue or green details; and on both sides of the case, are rubber inserts in the same colour. The signature Corum micro-rotor visible beneath the sapphire crystal has been finished with a contemporary spiral effect, which in itself is visually stunning when it begins to rotate.
