About Corum Coin Watches
When you put a Swiss watchmaker, a rare 20 dollar U.S. coin, and some crocodile leather in a room together, you end up with one of the most elegant and unusual watches available today. It is called the Corum Coin watch. It is made by Corum and it holds a place at the top end of the market of luxury watches. The basis of the watch is either a 20 dollar Double Eagle or a 10 dollar Liberty gold coin. Both of these coins are collector's items in their own right, as well as being iconic. The Swiss watchmaker Corum then installs an automatic movement inside the coin before delicately fitting hands and a gold crown set with a 0.17 carat diamond. The strap is then crafted from crocodile leather to create an unmistakable Corum watch band. The result is a watch that is defined by its uniqueness and its beauty. It is even water resistant up to 98 feet. The Corum Coin Watch has been in production since 1968 so there is a vast inventory available on eBay. The vintage Corum watch versions from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s in particular have become collector's items.
