Concord C1 Vintage Chronograph - Oscillating Between Past and Present

May 19, 2010
Is it possible to unite faded appearance with cutting-edge technology in one wristwatch? Concord says yes! The Concord C1 Vintage chronograph demonstrates a vintage look and makes one feel its avant-garde energy.

Famous for its unique approach to mechanical engineering, Concord has created a new C1 watch with a hammered-by-time, yet radiating with youthful energy case.

To make the watch acquire its faded look, the 44mm stainless steel case treated with blue PVD has been subjected to a mechanical and chemical polishing process of Trowalising or barrel-finishing. The case was put inside a vibrating drum containing deburring chips, water and a detergent compound, having come through intensive friction and rotation. The surface became subtly eroded and shotblasted and acquired an authentic matt-type finish.

The bold look of the Concord C1 Vintage chronograph has been further enhanced by use of contrasting materials. The case middle is framed by a rubber-clad ring, a signature detail of the Concord watch case construction. The crown and dial demonstrate original alternating finishes. The case construction is 200-meter water-resistant.

The heart of the new Concord watch is a COSC-certified automatic movement. Beating at 28, 800 vibrations per hour it offers a 42-hour power-reserve.

The case is coupled with a perfectly matching strap in blue leather, also deliberately worked to come up with a wornout effect. The strap is equipped with a contemporary black PVD-treated buckle. No wonder, the Concord C1 Vintage chronograph watch provides a resolutely offbeat vision of time.
