In 2013 the Swiss watchmaker Concord re-launched a slimmer, leaner version of its iconic C1 line. Due to its success, the firm is now preparing to launch the C1 Tourbillon, a new addition to this collection.
The 47 mm timepiece will be presented in a black PVD-finished titanium case and will house a mechanical Concepto 8905 movement that beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz) with hours, minutes and a flying tourbillon.
Its black dial is complemented by rhodium-plated hour markers with a polished finish and Super-LumiNova coating, allowing them to be read in a variety of lighting conditions. This is carried over onto the hour and minute hands themselves, which have been asymmetrically hollowed out. It is finished with a sapphire crystal display that has been treated with anti-reflective material.
Each timepiece is supplied on a black rubberized alligator strap with black stitching and black PVD-treated titanium deployment buckle with embossed Concord cover.
It’s open-work caseback has been engraved with “Audace – Savoir-Faire – Avant-Garde”, and allows the wearer of the piece to view the very inner workings of the mechanism and its tourbillon.
The Concord C1 Tourbillon will boast a minimum power reserve of approximately 48 hours and is water resistant up to a pressure of 5 bar – the equivalent of 50 meters or 165 feet.
