Video: Hands-on with the Concord C1 Quantum Gravity Power Reserve

The good men at Professional Watches got some face time with Concords strange and magical C1 complete with liquid nanotechnology power reserve.

This thing is nuts. While I appreciate the dedication to unique design and engineering, I still can’t see where Concord is going with this. The watch is nigh on unwearable, as we see from the video, but hopefully they’ll be able to move some of these techniques to actual production models a la Tag Heuer’s latest manufacture movement.

Regardless, this is a great and amazingly detailed look at one of the watches that is making watchmaking fresh again. They’re making 10 pieces out of titanium for 100,000 Swiss francs ($OMFG US aka about $88K).
