    Corum Coin watch, do they use the whole coin?

    I know they hollow out the coin for the movement. Question is, do they use all of the coins gold to make the watch. Maybe use the hollowed out gold for the lugs ect...

    If anyone is aware of a site or faq on the corum coin watch, I'd be interested in seeing it..

    Regards,

    Mike

    I don't have a Corum but my LeJour vintage coin watches have about half the coin hollowed out... and a standard set of lugs soldered on.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I really don't know , but would assume that they don't. Here is a coin watch I have:

    You can see from the back that lugs have been soldered on, but I really can't imagine they would go through the trouble of taking the metal they drill out and melting it into a mold to make the lugs. Good question though.

    Well, I figure they have to make the lugs somehow, it's just a matter of the idea behind the watch. Do they want it to be true from an amount of coin in the watch.
