Craftsmanship, technology and first-class quality standards are the soul of high-end watches and the spirit that the Swiss watch industry has always adhered to. Since ancient times, craftsmen have honed their skills diligently and awarded them to their descendants. The watch factory and pAiSTe, a well-known copper cymbal manufacturer, deeply resonate with this tradition of respect.
Bubble pAiSTe Watch
The common feature of Corum and pAiSTe is the strict adherence to the ‘Swiss Best Quality’ spirit. The Bubble pAiSTe watch dial created by the two parties is a micro-shaped mini-bronze. Each dial in the Bubble pAiSTe limited series is hand-made just like the copper cymbals produced by pAiSTe, which is unique. It is equipped with a black PVD-coated stainless steel case and a rubber-lined black calfskin strap. The bronze cymbal dial is even more outstanding.
pAiSTe has been cooperating with the global rock music industry for more than 40 years. The black cool theme of Bubble pAiSTe limited watch also echoes the subtle aesthetics of rock culture. The drummers of the well-known bands of Kiss, Pink Floyd and AC / DC in the contemporary rock music world have designated pAiSTe bronze cymbals, and pAiSTe has become a model of musicians’ respect. pAiSTe is a leader in musical instrument production, and it is a natural fit to pair with the avant-garde innovation pioneer Bubble Timepiece.
pAiSTe is a world-renowned copper cymbal brand. It is a family-owned company, based in Switzerland. It has a history of more than a century. Currently, it mainly produces top copper cymbals for world-renowned musicians. pAiSTe is known for its first-class quality and creativity. Its purpose is to create the most unique sound effects for the world’s top drummers, to meet the creativity and music style requirements of different drummers or percussionists.

How was the idea of the Bubble watch born?
Fifteen years ago, Severin Wunderman entered the field of fine watchmaking and wholly owned the Corum watch brand. When he first entered the country of watches, he had ambitions in his mind, because he thought that the watch industry was conservative and tedious at that time, and the industry’s thinking was not The written rules are firmly bound; he highly respects the industry’s first-class quality, craftsmanship and technical level, but believes that the industry’s creative spirit is insufficient. Most of the timepiece products seen in the market are conservative, and he believes that the industry must start with innovation Can move towards the future. He transformed his ideas into product ideas, and put innovative design first, and this thinking is the driving force for Severin Wunderman to transform the Corum brand into a creative pioneer in the high-end watch industry!
At that time, the trend of increasing watch sizes had taken shape, and the size of Bubble watches was even higher. Severin Wunderman was inspired by a piece of equipment from the former Professor Piccard’s submarine. The diameter of the Bubble watch was increased to 44 mm. Its super thick arched mirror is the source of the watch name. It is memorable at first sight.
Why will Bubble Watch return in 2015? How is the new model different from the original design more than ten years ago?
Over the years, Corum has injected contemporary aesthetic brushwork into its legendary works such as the iconic Golden Tube, Ingot Watch, and Indian Head Coin, to give the classic a new look. Fifteen years ago, the Bubble watch is not only a masterpiece of Corum, but also one of the classics of the altar. Bubble represents a revolutionary design thinking, can be called the avant-garde pioneer of the high-end watch industry, broke the industry norms at the time, and opened up new areas of creativity. Fifteen years later, Bubble will return to a limited edition, marking an important page in Corum’s creative history.
The new version of Bubble in 2015 is no different from the original, but the case diameter has been slightly increased from 44 mm to 47 mm, and the thickness of the arched mirror has been slightly reduced; the case has been frosted, satin-finished and polished. Watches and crafts are traditional, but the original innovation is consistent.
Who is the designer of Bubble watches?
Severin Wunderman personally designed the original Bubble watch that year; the new model is now being designed by Corum in collaboration with Nicolas Le Moigne, Pedro Friedeberg or pAiSTe.
