Which Corum Lady Are You?Written by Charmian Leong
Whether you're a tech whiz or the girl-next-door, there's a Corum watch for you.
You drink: Layered, exquisite cocktails.
You listen to: A white noise playlist for when needing to feel inspired.
Your heroines are: Inventors. Hedy Lamarr could easily be your style icon.
You should wear: Miss Golden Bridge. Released in 2010, the watch has slimmer dimensions and the option of sparkling embellishments. The baguette movement can still be seen in all its splendour in this feminine version.
You drink: Bright, summery fizzes. You judge a bar by its gin and tonic.
You listen to: A fast, dynamic soundtrack, anything from Chopin-esque classical music to hardcore punk Your heroines are: Explorers and Olympic medallists.
You should wear: The Admiral Legend Lady. With 12 nautical pennets replacing traditional hour markers, this collection calls for adventure. A version with a rubber strap or steel bracelet will make it the ideal accessory for a day out on the high seas.
You drink: At bars with no menu.
You listen to: Nothing you will find on Spotify.
Your heroines are: Genre-defining painters and children.
You should wear: The Bubble. Corum's wild child beckons to those who value individualism. The brand has even invited modern artists to design its 2017 novelties, and the results are wonderfully varied, with anything from a giant eyeball to a spicy interpretation of the Mona Lisa.
You drink: Champagne. Preferably vintage. In a tulip-shaped glass.
You listen to: Mood-setting bossa nova.
Your heroine is: Grace Kelly.
You should wear: The Sublissima. Corum's newest addition to its Heritage line is the perfect interpretation of restrained glamour. The 38mm case is just 7.70mm thick, with a diamond-set bezel and crown. Despite its diminutive size, the Sublissima houses an automatic movement with 50 hours of power reserve.
After seven years as a full-time scribe, four of them spent writing about luxury timepieces, Charmian has gone the way of the freelancer and is now fascinated by a different facet of time: having it. When not labouring over a story with a martini in hand, she plays video games and takes naps in 8-bit.
