ICON: CON­CORD C1 CHRONO­GRAPH

24-7 (Singapore) - - Cortina Watch -

When the C1 Chrono­graph was launched six years ago, it was im­me­di­ately pro­pelled to iconic sta­tus by its tech­ni­cal ex­cel­lence in con­struc­tion and rugged good looks. To­day, Con­cord has out­done it­self with the lat­est in­car­na­tion of its C1 Chrono­graph, which is sex­ier, leaner and more er­gonomic than be­fore, but still re­tains the DNA and spirit of its her­itage.

The new C1 is a slim­mer 15.1mm in depth than the orig­i­nal 16.7mm, while the di­am­e­ter of its frame has in­creased from 44mm to 47mm to make a bolder state­ment. Made of ul­tra-light Grade 5 titanium, the C1 sports an er­gonomic curved base that fol­lows the con­tour of the wrist for in­creased ease of wear­ing.

What it re­tains in its DNA is its iconic eight-block bezel – now in ei­ther titanium or ce­ramic – the A07 move­ment, so­phis­ti­cated dial de­sign with rich de­tail­ing and an art­ful blend of high-tech ma­te­ri­als in­clud­ing sturdy ce­ramic, light­weight titanium and rub­berised al­li­ga­tor leather. Th­ese ele­ments blend to­gether fl aw­lessly to show­case the un­stint­ing eye for perfection that has be­come syn­ony­mous with the name Con­cord.

ICON: SARATOGA

Named af­ter the Saratoga Race Course, the old­est race­track in the United States, the Saratoga watch col­lec­tion en­cap­su­lates the strength and glam­our of thor­ough­bred horses at the races. To cel­e­brate the 150th an­niver­sary of the Saratoga Race Course this year, Con­cord is re-re­leas­ing the time­less orig­i­nal de­sign in an ar­ray of ma­te­ri­als, rang­ing from black PVD to sup­ple al­li­ga­tor skin, mak­ing it the ul­ti­mate choice in sleek sports lux­ury.

The con­tem­po­rary ver­sion of the Saratoga Chrono­graph houses larger counters, crys­tal- clear Ro­man nu­mer­als and a big­ger date dis­play in its 42mm case, com­ple­ment­ing its sig­na­ture eight-sided bezel. With a whimsical touch that is a se­cret to all but the wearer, the case­back is em­bossed with an im­age of the Saratoga horses, a sub­tle re­minder of the timepiece’s ori­gins.

El­e­gant women will love the Saratoga Lady Black, whose 31mm curved stain­less steel case is set with 32 sparkling di­a­monds. An­other six fi ne di­a­monds al­ter­nate with Ro­man nu­mer­als on the white mother-of-pearl dial. This clas­sic num­ber comes with a ver­sa­tile black al­li­ga­tor strap, mak­ing it an ac­ces­sory that will ef­fort­lessly dress up even the sim­plest of out­fits.
