Thread: After years, no success of tracking this one down, a true grail.

  1. #1

    After years, no success of tracking this one down, a true grail.

    Man they are bringing the bubble back! I seen this in person 10 years ago and loved the finish of the case, the bubble sapphire and the nicely decorated skeleton movement. Been looking for one ever since. Corum Bubble Skeleton. I just love this thing. Its so different then anything I ever owned but I love it. The case finishing is incredible. The domed sapphire is a work of art. Its a far cry from my usual taste in watches but I just love it!

    It cheers me no end that it exists. Extreme watches are good for the breed, but I'm unlikely to want one.

    Crazy dome. $3425 for the 2 non-skeleton versions. It would certainly be different.

    I have trouble with the idea of not having one of the hand laid mosaic dials on a Bubble.

    The original skeleton also looks better than the new one.
