Corum Romvlvs Billioniare Tourbillon Watch
In the luxury world, "millionaire" doesn't sounds nearly as sexy as it used to. With the existence of watches that cost a million dollars, having just a few million dollars in the bank isn't gonna get precious stone peddlers excited. So we've stepped things up to making "billionaire" the new "millionaire." The former of which is exactly the type of person who might be interested in this new, highly limited watch from Corum.
I have to say that I have seen this watch, and it is mighty impressive. My favorite part is the Roman numerals on the bezel - done entirely in diamonds. Swanky! As is en vogue today, Corum "suspends" the manually wound tourbillon movement in plates made out of sapphire crystal. The watch case design is based on the Corum Romvlus (Romulus) collection of watches. It is a collection I happen to like a lot, but isn't found in the US very often. And this is one Romvlvs piece that no one will find very often with just five pieces ever to be produced.
Set in a large 45mm wide 18k white gold case, the movement and dial are likely to be the second thing people notice about the "Billionaire" what. First is the rich coating of diamonds that the watch case gets. It has 164 large diamonds on the case, with another 44 on the bezel. This watch is 'carat rich.' While I am not sure of the price of the watch, its name should give you something hint as to when the cost is fathomable. Again, the Corum Romulus Billionaire Tourbillon will be limited to just 5 pieces, and for some people might just be the perfect arm hand.
