Corum Watch Repair & Service | Manhattan Time Service® Watchmaker
Service Recommendations for Corum Watches – It is recommended that Corum timepieces be examined or overhauled every three to five years, depending, of course, on the type of use by its wearer. Maintenance could be due sooner if the time shown on the watch becomes irregular. A wearer’s daily activities have a direct impact on the precision of the timepiece’s movement. If your watch is significantly fast or slow, it is best to bring the watch to a qualified workshop for a necessary adjustment.
Corum was founded in 1955 in the Swiss watchmaking capital of the world, La Chaux-de-Fonds. Since its beginning, Corum has represented distinctively different and forward thinking as far as Swiss watchmaking is concerned. Corum’s founders, Gaston Ries and his nephew, René Bannwart, melded their respective strengths as watchmaker and creative genius to build a small private label watch factory. The duo’s audacious originality and the quality of their workmanship helped secure Corum’s success as a trend-setting watch company.
Corum watches have been able to hold on to a significant share of the market because of their melodramatic designs and extreme reliability. Corum watches are highly reliant on their design, choosing to focus as much on a watch’s architecture as its inner workings.
What Makes Corum Watches Unique
Corum’s logo, a key, is representative of the company’s first motto, “The key to perfect time.” Additionally, their designs have also “unlocked” key successes for the company, including being the maker of the World Series of Poker watches given to bracelet winners, and then producers of the bracelets themselves since 2007.
