Since bursting onto the scene a few years ago with a ‘70s-inspired racing chronograph dubbed the Voiture, Nezumi has churned out a slew of well-designed pieces that carry on the same classic vibe with just a touch of rock and roll. The Corbeau, Nezumi’s latest, is no different, taking some basic cues from the Voiture line and moving them into a more aggressive territory with three new variations.
The main case of the Corbeau series should seem familiar to those who’ve handled Nezumi timepices before. The main body of the case is a holdover from the original Voiture line, with its twisted-Omega-style lugs and 40-millimeter diameter (read our full review of the Voiture here for our in-depth opinions on this case).The overall feel of the case is more compact than its Voiture stablemate, but still unmistakably Nezumi. The Corbeau 3, with its black PVD treatment, takes the aesthetic a step further from its shared DNA, adding an almost tactical feel.
