Luxury watches are an ultimate symbol of success and the affluence that comes after it. And when we think of luxury watches, the usual suspects come to mind (those brands that start with “O” and “R”). But there’s another luxury brand that only elite buyers know: Corum. How does $347,000 sound like for a watch? It’s the price of a Corum 45 Minute Repeater Tourbillon Red Gold. Made from18k red gold case (45mm), it’s clearly reserved for the top dog. It has sapphire crystal dial with grey PVD coating and a black leather strap with 18k gold tongue buckle. Its hand wound CO 010 movement with minute repeater ensures that time is kept precisely down to the millisecond. The Corum watch also has 72-hour power reserve and is water-resistant up to 30 meters. Of course, you don't buy this watch just to tell time, but to show the world you’re made!
Corum is available at Shreve & Co. in San Francisco, California.
