La C1 Retrograde donne du relief à la fuite du temps. Un relief rigoureusement géométrique mis en valeur par des matériaux high tech et la construction désormais emblématique des boîtiers Concord. Le décor agence date rétrograde, réserve de marche et jour dans un volume parfaitement ordonné. Le nouvel engin temporel de Concord fonctionne en pilotage automatique. Extrêmement légère, sa coque en titane flanquée d'éléments en caoutchouc mêle technologie et design tout en demeurant fidèle aux règles de construction de la marque : robustesse à toute épreuve, ceinture de protection vissée latéralement, glace saphir traitée anti-reflet sanglée de bastions, couronne à la conception fortifiée, parfait ajustement au poignet. Le paradoxe entre la densité, le volume et la légèreté de la pièce est étonnant. Les fonctions temporelles prennent place sur un cadran noir texturé. Sa structure alvéolaire mate s'inspire de la station de métro Ballston à Washington. Le style est contemporain, l'esprit urbain. Le bossage régulier accuse le contraste avec les disques des sous-cadrans et manipule le clairobscur. Les athlétiques aiguilles des heures et minutes balayent des index luminescents biseautés. Des marqueurs rouge sang pointent avec assurance les informations temporelles. Tandis que les reliefs s'entrechoquent, les indications se jaugent. Installée à 3h, la date rétrograde affichée sur disque s'impose. Le jour est indiqué en vis-à vis, la réserve de marche de 42 heures à 6h. Chacun des trois sous-cadrans ajoute sa propre personnalité au caractère racé de la montre. Le mécanisme oscillant à 28'800 alternances par heure est visible par le fond saphir. Son design épuré s'allie la silhouette ténébreuse d'un rotor noir. Son décor en Côtes de Genève parachève l'architectonique de la pièce. Données Techniques : Mouvement Mécanique à remontage automatique Calibre 9094 28'800 A/H Réserve de marche de 42 heures 30 rubis Fonctions Heure, minute, secondes Disque de date rétrograde Disque de jour Indication de réserve de marche Boîtier Titane - lunette avec 8 protections en caoutchouc noir Dimensions : 44mm de diamètre - 13.15 mm de hauteur Fonds ouvert vissé avec 8 vis Cadran Multicouches complexes, guilloché nervuré noir Bracelet Caoutchouc vulcarboné noir rivé au boîtier par 4 vis The C1 Retrograde brings relief to the flight of time: a strictly geometrical relief enhanced by high-tech materials and the now emblematic Concord case. The volumes of the retrograde date indicator, power reserve and day disk are perfectly-organized in the decor. Concord's new time engine operates on automatic pilot. Its extremely light Titanium shell, flanked by rubber features, combines technology and design whilst remaining faithful to the brand's construction rules: sturdy enough to withstand the toughest conditions, a protection belt that is screwed laterally, antiglare-treated sapphire crystal fastened with bastions, a crown with a fortified design and a perfect fit on the wrist. The paradox between the density, volume and lightness of the piece is astounding. The temporal functions take their positions on a black texturized dial. The inspiration for its mat alveolar structure was drawn from the Ballston Metro station in Washington. Its style is contemporary, and its spirit, urban. The dark construction is in stark contrast to the sub-dials' disks and expertly handles chiaroscuro. The athletic hours and minutes hands sweep out beveled luminescent markers. Blood-red indicators confidently point at temporal information. And as the reliefs compete, indications size each other up. Located at 3 o'clock, the retrograde date indicator displayed on the disk makes its presence felt. The day is shown opposite, and the 42-hour power reserve is at 6 o'clock. Each of the three sub-dials brings its own personality to the watch's racy nature. The mechanism, oscillating at 28'800 vibrations per hour, can be seen from the sapphire back. Its streamlined design matches the dark silhouette of a black rotor. Its Côtes de Genève-style decor completes the piece's architectonic nature. Concord's new time engine operates on automatic pilot.
