Concord introduced a new C1 Chronograph, with a special blue treatment, last month at the Baselworld show. Like the original C1 Chronograph, it comes in a large, but wearable 44 mm size. It has the same signature vulcanized rubber around the bezel and on the crown and pushers, that is seen on all C1 timepieces. Inside, is a nicely decorated automatic chronograph movement (an ETA Valgranges A07.211) with blued screws and a blackened oscillating weight.
The dial is carbon fiber and blue, with an exposed date indicator and a three subdials, at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock. The coolest feature, and what sets this apart from all other C1 chronographs, is the blue PVD case. It has basically been run through a washing machine – giving it a faded blue “destructed look”.
Retail is estimated to be $10,000.
