An insight into the Corum brand!!!
The Swiss watch company Corum was established in 1955 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, by Rene Bannwart. He chose the name Corum because he loved the meaning of the word "quorum." The word "quorum" refers to a group of people that is necessary to make legitimate decisions. A quorum is typically a small group, thus allowing a company or club to experience synergy.
Corum has refused to conform since the very beginning. In 1958, Corum introduced the first baguette movement, which resembles a tube. The baguette movement first made its appearance in the Gold Tube watch and can still be seen in the Gold Bridge model today. In 1960, Corum developed the first water-resistant watch with a square case. Corum never stopped creating innovative timepieces, from the Romvlvs watch, which was developed in 1966 and had the numerals stamped on the bezel, to the Feather watch, which was introduced in 1970 and was made of authentic bird feathers.
