Mar 20, 2009
In 2008, the world of watchmaking witnessed the appearance of the C1 Tourbillon Gravity watch that marked the beginning of a new watchmaking era of remarkable innovations.

This year, the boundaries of mechanical watchmaking have been pushed even further: the C Lab Series has designed and developed a new breakthrough - the C1 QuantumGravity. The watch, relevant to the field of extreme watchmaking, is a symbol of unrestricted and unconstrained time, with just impulse and intuition prevailing.

The C1 QuantumGravity watch fires imagination by every aspect of its sophisticated outside and inside construction:
- an aerial bi-axial tourbillon mechanism,
- a vertical power reserve,
- individualist seconds,
- a stripped-down dial
- spectacular volumes.

The process of creation the C1 QuantumGravity watchmaking wonder started in the autumn of 2008. The timepiece was born following a 5-month incubation period, due to the will and stream of energy of a great team. BNB Concept was entrusted with the movement of the watch, while Studio Bellon worked on the design.

The C1 QuantumGravity watch accommodates a mechanical manually wound movement - Caliber Concord C104. The movement, beating at 21,600 vibrations per hour, provides a 3-day power reserve. Besides hours and minutes, the timepiece features roll of seconds external to the case, a vertical power-reserve indicator and a bi-axial tourbillon.

The titanium case, 48.5mm in diameter and 22 mm in depth, incorportes white gold elements. It also incorporates 5 sapphire crystals and a transparent see-through officer-style hinged case back.

The entire breathtaking construction is coupled with a black vulcanized rubber strap fixed to the case with help of 4 screws.
