New circuit board and battery. The listing price is what I will accept, nothing less. Considered a technical masterpiece, the Coin watch remains one of the most important pieces in the Corum collection. These watches are becoming increasingly rarer as the availability of the coins used to fashion them are depleting. The workings of this unique wristwatch are contained inside genuine 22kt gold coins of great historic interest, the famous American 20-dollar Double Eagle and the 10-dollar Eagle.Corum introduced gold coin watches in 1964. First, the coin is cut in two along its edge. The watch is then assembled and finished entirely by-hand by craftsmen in the workshop in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. One half of the coin forms the dial of the watch that is protected by a sapphire crystal and the other half forms its base. Between the two halves lays the precious, ultra slim, watch movement. A solid 18kt gold ring, on which the fine ridging of the original coin has been carefully reproduced, holds this work-of-art together.
The winding crown, in solid 18kt gold, is set with a fully cut diamond. In the present instance, we have a beautiful mint condition Corum Quartz United States Gold Twenty Dollar Double Eagle Coin Watch. The band and bezel are 18kt gold, while the Gold Double Eagle coin is 22K. Total weight including movement: 100 grams. This watch is crafted from a genuine 1907 United States Double Eagle Twenty Dollar Coin.
The band is Corum's heavy 18K yellow gold band which is presently 7.5" x 3/4" x 1/16 thick. The circular bezel measures 36 mm in diameter. Comes complete with its own Corum storage box and pillow. I've owned this watch for 12 years and have only worn it once. This is a very rare and graceful piece, perfect for formal or everyday wear.I have described this item to the best of my ability.
