Today's offering showcases this prime example of a vintage Corum watch with classic design.
It features a "TV shaped" case, a striking silver dial emblazoned with Corum logos, original cabochon sapphire crown, and high grade handwound Corum movement.
The movement is shock protected and adjusted to three positions.
It is all original down to its original Corum band and buckle and is in gorgeous condition. The original protective sticker is still on the back. The original ostrich skin Corum band has hardly been worn.
Its case presents as just short of mint. Its original untouched dial is mint. Note that the slight discoloration that shows in the photos around the top edge is just the aging of the glue that holds the crystal - it isn't on the dial. The crystal could be re-glued - please inquire if you like.
A Master Watchmaker has performed any needed servicing. Photos of the inside available upon request.
Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
