Description

Up for sale is my near mint Concord C1 chronograph.
This watch is made from 2 materials - titanium and ceramic, not counting the sapphire crystal and display back.
The pushers, bezel spacer and blocks are all ceramic.
For those who like to use their chronographs, the contact patch of the pushers is large and gentle on the finger tips.
The watch measures 45.8mm x 15mm and is lugless so the “lugs to lugs” measurement is the same as the case size, and is smaller than the “lugs to lugs” measurement of my two smallest watches – a 42mm Rado D-Star 200 and a 41mm Zelos Hammerhead, both of these have a lugs to lugs measurement of 50mm.
This will easily fit smaller wrists.
The watch is factory rated to 200m but I’m not sure I’d get it wet with a croc band.
This watch sold originally for a little under $11,000 and is powered by Concord’s A07 movement which is based on the ETA Valgranges A07.211, a 25 jewel automatic similar to but larger than a 7750.
Here is a review of this watch from a few years back by one of our members:https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/rev....html#poststop
This is an unusual watch without being too over the top, but is not for everyone.
It is certainly eye catching, and the ceramic blocks also serve the purpose of protecting the bezel.
There is a very light mark on the bezel between 2 and 3 that is visible in the 1st picture and the case has a light mark at 9:00.
This watch is so close to mint.
I’d rate it near mint, TZ 96%.
Thanks for looking,
Gary
