Corum's claim to fame came early on when the company introduced a watch made out of a $20 dollar gold piece which was an instant best-seller. Even though this had been done before on pocket watches, Corum was the first and only one ever to do a wristwatch.
The team was completed in 2007 with the arrival of a man with a rich professional background, Antoine Calce, to the CEO position, who oversees overall operations.
Created in 1966, the Corum Romulus was the first watch ever to display the hour numerals on the bezel. It sports a sapphire case back engraved with a laurel crown in honor of Romulus, the founder of ancient Rome. It's available in stainless steel, white or yellow gold and a dual time version in either yellow or white gold.
