Corum revisits the shape of its acclaimed Bubble with a fresh pair of eyes, taking it to new, Big dimensions. The new watch is the result of a partnership between the La Chaux-de-Fonds watch brand and DJ and composer Matteo Ceccarini.
Presented as a limited edition of 88 pieces, this Bubble is striking thanks to its intense, piercing oceanic gaze. Enhanced by 3D technology and the watch’s famous domed sapphire crystal, this memorable eye leaves a lasting impression on a dial free from numerals.
For the artist, the eye is much more than an artistic creation: “Anima means ‘soul’ and it is said that the eyes are the mirror of the soul.” The eye has been seen as a protective symbol and used as a kind of lucky charm since ancient times.
Matteo Ceccarini is an Italian DJ, composer and producer. In 1993, he launched his career at the age of 21 by performing in famous clubs in Milan and Paris, as well as Bali.
He was then discovered by designer Gianfranco Ferré, who introduced him to the fashion world. Through music that combines ambient, electro, classic contemporary and minimalist influences, he composes pieces for the biggest luxury brands for their fashion shows and parties.
Given his love for Asia, Matteo spent several years living there, and in India in particular in order to soak up the traditional holy music that he uses for his compositions. In the same vein, he composed music in 1997 for ‘Zanskar and Tibet’ – Richard Gere’s personal exhibition of photos of Tibet.
