Founded in 1955 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, the Swiss watchmaker Corum has developed a reputation for offering unique designs. The company has rolled out watches that have impressed avid timepiece collectors and discerning consumers all around the world. Kurt Rothner’s Excalibur is now offering a chance to own the very special Corum’s Rolls-Royce Watch that was released back in 1976. This 1970′s Rolls-Royce manual wind watch is made of 18k yellow gold. What you can see on the front is the grill of a Rolls-Royce placed atop a manually wound, Swiss-made Corum movement. The Rolls-Royce Grill watch resembled the real grills found on the sedans of the time.

At that time, this watch was available in both men’s and women’s versions and they sold it along with a pair of matching Rolls-Royce grill cufflinks. The watch represented the first ever partnership of this kind with a prestigious automobile manufacturer. The Corum 1970′s Rolls-Royce Watch, available at Excalibur, is being said to be in a very good condition and they are even offering a one-year warranty on watch movement. Yours for a mere $5,250.
