I have a fairly narrow frame of reference when it comes to buying watches for myself: my taste runs to independents, in-house movements, and superlative hand-finishing.
So, basically my personal preferences are for watches that I generally cannot afford.
And I’m fine with that. Liking high-end watches and living near Geneva is as much of a hardship as liking art and living beside the Louvre in Paris.
So why on earth am I sitting here typing about the Corum Bubble, which is from a big (for me) brand and outfitted with an ETA 2892 movement with an industrial finish? Well, this is why I bought it.
