NEW: Corum Bubble MiniWritten by Alvin Wong
Much tinier, but still the same plus-sized personality.
There is just no escaping the vivacity of the Corum Bubble watch, not even when it is this tiny. The most curvaceous watch on the planet has been shrunk into case sizes measuring just 17mm across with the Bubble Mini collection – the smallest Bubble watch line yet.
While at its daintiest and most feminine – the last Bubble Mini watches came in 26mm case, while ‘normal’ Bubbles come in 42mm, 47mm and 57mm cases – the new quartz-driven models brim with just as much fun and exuberance as their siblings. The iconic, globular sapphire case is the top attraction as always, and the watches come in three limited edition variants, each capped at 18 pieces, and distinguished by gem-set options: rubies, topaz, or diamonds, as seen below.
We think this makes a great fashion-y, accessory-style accompaniment for women who want the Bubble’s exuberance without the intrusiveness of the plus-sized lines. We know it is still early days for the Bubble Mini, but would it be too much of an ask for a mechanical option sometime in the not-to-distant future?
Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
