Concord C1 Chronograph - Innovative Timekeeping Wonder

Nov 07, 2007
The Concord C1 Chronograph, COSC-certified timekeeping device, is created in the spirit of advanced technological research and innovation.

The powerful Concord watch is housed in an ambitious watch case that measures 44 mm in diameter, 16.7 mm from front to back. A really sturdy construction!

The case of the innovative Concord C1 Chronograph is assembled from 53 components and will perfectly absorb and dampen any blows and jarring. It guarantees water-resistance to a pressure of 20 ATM.

There is protective metal ring fitted over the middle case - it is rubber-coated and secured by seven self-blocking side screws. The ring sports eight decorative tabs extending over the bezel. The unique system is used to protect an impressive, 3.3-mm-thick, anti-reflective sapphire crystal as though emerging from the case.

The setting crown of the Concord watch is composed of steel, rubber and composite materials, interlocked to come up with greater compactness and resistance. The designers of the watch put a raised C1 logo on the rubber end-piece to add a distinctive final touch to the watch's overall design.

The open case back of the Concord C1 Chronograph allows to rest one's eyes on the watch's self-winding movement, running at 28,800 vibrations per hour and providing 48-hour power reserve. The oscillating weight of the mechanism is finished in black rhodium for creating a dramatic contrast. It features a cut-out of the C1 logo silhouetted through a fine ribbed Cotes de Geneve decorative pattern.

The dial of the new Concord chronograph is crafted in carbon fiber and perfectly milled metal. It represents a sophisticated multi-level creation. The hour and minute hands are provided with black trim and luminescent material. The hands sweep over the dial with hollowed-out luminescent-substance-filled markers. The hands themselves feature original asymmetrical cut-outs.

Study the layout of the Concord C1 Chronograph's dial:

  • At 9 o'clock, there is the running seconds sub-dial with a rotating disk just 0.1 mm thick.

  • At 3 o'clock, you will notice the dial aperture with the date numerals 'fading in and out'.

  • At 12 o'clock there is the 30-minute counter.

  • At 6 o'clock there is the 12-hour counter.

  • As a smart final touch, the first quarter of the minute circle matches the color of the sweep seconds hand in vibrant Concord blue.

The Concord watch is secured to the wrist with a vulcanized rubber strap featuring velvety matte finish. The strap is equipped with titanium end-pieces to secure it to the case with help of two pairs of self-blocking screws. It is remarkable it is the first chronograph design that lacks case horns. The watch's strap-to-case attachments provide a perfect wrist-hugging fit.

The double deployment clasp of the strap reveals the Concord engraved logo. There is also an alternative of the C1 chronograph equipped with a stainless steel bracelet that is linked to the case with help of an original articulated link system.

The C1 gladdens the eye due to the unique play of light on its volumes and textures. Each and every element of the Concord creation's design is finished and decorated as part of a harmoniously balanced construction.
