I've never really been a fan of fluted bezzels, outside of perhaps the original Datejust or President. Agree it does look like the original speedy strap, but doesn't work as well here as it looks too chunky on the smaller/sleeker watch. I think it looks better on a leather strap.
The LE version of this looks awesome (the white gold on croc version).post #47343 of 4831211/27/15 at 8:13pmQuote:Originally Posted by Dino944
As you can see, I had the same hairy wrist issue when trying on the above 2 skeletonized Cartiers, one of which apparently, you have also tried. I think the skin and hair ia going to be an even bigger issue with the Golden Bridge Corum you are looking at because of the very small movement relative to the case size, which results in very large open sections where your wrist will be visible through the sapphire crystal. I agree, skeletonized watches are a true art form, one that is often forgotten and under appreciated in a modern world of over sized watches. Only you can decide if this is the watch for you. However, as mentioned, if you decide to buy it get the best deal you can possibly get, and try to be sure its a keeper, as this could be a very very difficult watch to resell, or you might lose a lot when you sell or trade it, both because of its skeletonized design and the brand. Good luck with whatever you decide.
Just to make things clear, that cartier was a googled pic. I didn't try it. And I most definitely agree on the selling part. If I were to make the purchase, it would be like buying a piece of art instead of a watch. So its 12k immortalise into a watch. That skeletonized tank looks beat up, are u at some sort of meet up or something? doesn't seem like boutique quality.post #47344 of 4831211/27/15 at 10:31pmQuote:Originally Posted by Novelty77

I specifically emphasized the tough resell trade issue because you seem to sell/trade watches quite soon after you purchase them. For me although the case shape and movement are unusual, there is just far too much empty space with that style of movement , but if you love it, go for it.
As for the skeletonized Tank that was taken in the boutique and it was a brand new, perfect example. What you are noticing are marks on the plastic covering to protect the case (if you click on the photo to enlarge it, you will see where the plastic ends, going across the sections of the croc straps that closest to the case). My SA offered to take the plastic off, but I told her that wouldn't be necessary, (I wasn't seriously contemplating a purchase that day). Cheers and good luck with whatever you decide about the Corum.post #47345 of 4831211/27/15 at 10:53pmpost #47346 of 4831211/28/15 at 7:10ampost #47347 of 4831211/28/15 at 7:15ampost #47348 of 4831211/28/15 at 8:13pmQuote:

Grats on your recent acquisitions guys!
Came across this particular watch that intrigued me deeply.
And the cost was much less i was expecting. Could the brand be the reason? Because the material:rose gold case/gold bridge/4 sided sapphire crystal and design is impeccable.
I'm talking abt the corum 50th anniversary golden bridge. Ard the 12kish usd mark.
Can anyone give me their thoughts on this watch?
I like that watch, I wouldn't mind if you bought it for me.post #47353 of 4831211/30/15 at 5:50ampost #47354 of 4831211/30/15 at 5:53ampost #47355 of 4831211/30/15 at 6:38am
