The last time Corum made a nice watch was...wait...ahhh, yes, the late 1950s (the Rubimatic, powered by an ETA 2452). The bling is there, though, so should one want bling, that's the way to go. Of course, that's unless you're having a horological arms race with someone wearing an Everose gold Yacht-Master.

1950s? Hardly. The original Golden Bridge was and is the tits - 1980, baby. Now down to biz - I'm quite taken with the AC Trophy above, Mr. Bloke - any idea which movement it employs?

"Nice" is an entirely subjective matter, sir John. 1950s, that be merely the opinion that I, Mr. Bloke, have. The Golden Bridge is not half bad. I'm not really into skeleton watches, so... Still, by skeleton watch standards, it's more than OK.
I do like their coin watches, although still I think the old Rubimatic beats them in terms of the looks.

As to that watch - the info seems to be hard to come by, and in most (if not all!) places, the movement is only described as "automatic", which is an infuriating practice of being economic with the tech specs. Usually it's used to hide the facts that aren't as much compromising (why would they, with a brand like Corum?) as they are unlikely to impress.
Since the movement is not being described in any offer or listing, I can only assume that it's generic - the watch being something of an entry level piece, that would make sense. The location of the date window in relation to the edge of the case and the centre of the dial would suggest something 12 lignes tops.
Of Corum's current collection (the watch in question appears to have been discontinued - or at least it's not on the Corum website), there are 2 sweep second time and date models, that being a 47mm behemoth with a 13.25''' in-house movement, and a 38mm with an ETA 2892 (not described as such, but...21 jewels, 28800vph 11.5''', that tells me all I need to know). That said, expect an ETA inside, likely a 2892 alright. Maybe SW300, the 2892's Sellita clone - I know that Eterna, under the same ownership, uses the SW300, so maybe Corum does as well. So either the SW300 or the 2892.

Certainly discontinued - probably NOS. Most I've seen offered are 2005/06 vintage or thereabout. I don't believe Sellita had the 300 at that point, so you are likely correct about the 2892.

EDIT: Update. Chap on another forum says it's Corum's CO-082, a Corum customized Soprod A10. Size and specs fit....

Could be Soprod alright. Same diameter, date window location would be similar as well.

2005/2006? I guess the SW300 would have already been around. Sellita started the production of ETA clones in 2003, and the 2824 and 2892 happen to be the "usual suspects", when a company starts making copies of ETAs. They certainly had the means to start the production of these clones back then, as prior to 2003, they were a parts supplier to the Swatch Group.

If it's NOS, like, completely NOS, then the oils in the movement are something like 12 years old, which is from 5 to 7 years above the "shelf life" of the oils used. So, should you decide to get it, it will be due for servicing as soon as it arrives.

Fucking Jomashop...a bunch of evil tempters & temptresses, all of whom blatantly expose their wares with a salaciousness that defies all that is pure, all that is familiar, all that is warm, fuzzy and snugglebunny safe. ***SIGH*** And, of course, weakened and watch-sodden old sot that I am, I find myself heeding the horological siren-song of this lusty-busty pice of soft, warm and yielding watch flesh...NO! I...mustn't...dammit, where is Super Powdered Toast Man when I so desperately need him...? :???:
