Celebrating 10 year Corrigia
Personal words from Cengi why he created this watch in September 2021 before he launch it
"Regarding the anniversary watch, I couldn't help it :))
The new Panerai hardly have any space on the bridge for 6mm thick straps :))
On my watch with more than 3.9mm space on the bridge, the thickest True Vintage straps can easily be mounted without a lot of effort :))
Therefore I can already say that I build this watch primarily just for myself and for a few crazy regular customers :))
Next month the parts will all be made in Germany, of course, from the case to the small second hand (only the movement comes from Switzerland). "
Corrigia Diver Watch
I have known Cengi for years now and can only conclude his obsession for perfection made him into one of the most successful strap makers. He is pushing his limits constantly and from just straps his business has expanded by now to watch pouches, belts and leather jackets with the same passion to create exclusive high-end products that especially watch enthusiasts appreciate.
To celebrate his 10 years in the business he came with something no one expected, a high-end luxury diving watch that is as bold, if not bolder, than Panerai watches with a 300-3000m waterproof design housing a very reliable MLJP-G100 movement that is in dimensions compatible with the ETA2824 movement but with high-end decorations & complications, more power reserve of 70 hours and a slimmer design.
The case back with sapphire windows
The first model that came out is the Corrigia01 Pro.A in bronze and like all later models that have come out are limited to 50 units.
The dial is a single layer brass dial with Special Black Matte-Patina-Finish, deep engraved with a very complicated old pocket milling method and filled by hand with high quality Swiss Super-LumiNova® SLN Old Radium. The silver colour hands are also filled with High Quality Swiss Super-LumiNova® SLN Old Radium. This makes the watch shine like a torch when in the dark!
It comes with both a Style Case back that has 3 sapphire lenses and makes the watch 300m waterproof and a Pro Case back that makes it a 3000m waterproof diving watch. Another interesting fact is that from the crown to the crown guard, everything is screwed down, the best and most reliable solution.
Every Corrigia watch is assembled by hand in-house by a trained watchmaker, Simon Mayer, in his Manufacture in Jockgrim, Germany, that means every watch will get the same individual care and attention.
The series has now grown to 3 series, each unique in finish and dial colors. When you buy one of them, it comes in a beautiful box that is actually packed with goodies, like 5 handmade Corrigia vintage straps, tools to change straps and the buckle. Each watch comes with a 5 year international warranty card with a handwritten date, handwritten signature by Cengio Corrigia and limitation certificate.
