Corum watches have been well known for some unique features since they started up in 1955. Some of their earliest watches are well known because they would take a gold or silver coin and build it into the watch carefully and delicately. It was a slow and careful process, but the watches were so well built that people instantly loved them. The gold or silver coin was carefully and slowly split in half, and then placed into the watch and added to a timepiece for a stunning combination. The one thing that made the Corum watch company stand out in its early days was to convert the timepiece from a pocket watch to a wrist watch.
