The curved rectangular case — including its own grooved winding crown at the bottom, a hallmark characteristic of Corum’s Bridges set — is made from 5N 18k rose gold and measures 29.5 mm by 42.2 mm. The baton-shaped hour and second hands are faceted and rhodium-plated. The front and back of this watch, which is water-resistant to 30 meters, are covered with nonreflective sapphire crystals. The strap is brown alligator leather using a triple-folding clasp made from rose gold. And today, it’s one of their main collections, so much so that they made a decision to make a unique piece using the iconic Bubble design. This is the Corum Bubble 47 Flying Tourbillon watch, including not just a tourbillon however a menacing skull for a dial.The Corum Bubble 47 Flying Tourbillon watch includes a 47mm 18k rose gold case, and further accentuating its size is its large bubble-shaped crown, also made out of 18k rose gold. And as a consequence of the domed sapphire crystal, thickness is a whopping 18.55mm. Certainly, the Corum Bubble 47 Flying Tourbillon is no little watch, and it is bound to draw a lot of attention. If wrist attendance is what you seek, this watch will send it in spades. Unfortunately, regardless of the watch’s beefy measurements, water resistance is 30 meters, so be skeptical of liquids.
In the month of April 2010, Westime stores will pay your tax for you. I am pretty sure that legally they need to collect tax, but it is on them. This could mean pretty significant discounts on watches. Especially given the caliber of timepieces that Westime carries. Actually, Westime has a good mix of very high-end and more reasonably luxury watches. They have a ton of brands, some of which are: Richard Mille, A. Lange & Sohne, Bell & Ross, Urwerk, Audemars Piguet, Nubeo, MB&F, Corum, and many more mainstream and hard to find independent brands. Click here to find a list of all the brands Westime carries.
The special no tax discount will apply anytime during the rest of April. To get the discount you either need to visit one of the stores (the two locations are below), or order via the phone. The offer even applies to layaway purchases. Thus, you don’t even need to be in the area to take advantage of the promotion. Westime is the only place you can get certain watches, or of the only places in the US. So it is worth checking out if you have been holding back waiting for a time like this. There are two LA locations for the boutiques (addresses below). Don’t forget that the sale only applied until the end of April, 2010.
