A Corum timepiece is an investment for which each owner should treasure. A watch is a high-precision instrument manufactured with hundreds of parts. Although Corum movements are assembled with the utmost care, their accuracy can be affected by the influence of gravity, magnetic fields, shocks and most probably by ageing oils. Also the water resistance may be impaired by the ageing of gaskets or by an accidental shock.
The precision of a mechanical movement depends on several factors, but essentially on the balance-spring/ balance/escapement driv train, known as the regulating organs.
A complete overhaul of the watch is recommended every 3 to 5years depending on the conditions in which it is used. Water resistance should be annually checked by a Corum official dealer or an authorized service centre.
“We expect the Middle East market to reach over 15 % of our total worldwide sales in 2016. But this does not include sales made to Middle Eastern clients in Paris, London or elsewhere. The Middle East market is a connoisseur-driven market that greatly influences the entire horological world,”
