Concord says the new C1 Big Date Radar is “endowed with a rugged look, a strong character and a distinctive personality.” They have a point. The dial presents an array of levels and textures with hour markers that float above the fray. The 3.3 mm-thick sapphire crystal is secured by a bezel that is is straddled by eight black rubber-clad protective tabs, anchored by side screws. The price and wallpaper-size images are inside.
A double-window big date display and rotating small-seconds disc with triangle indicator combine with partially-skeletonized hands to display the relevant data. Generous amounts of Superluminova assure easy nighttime reading.
Inside the 44mm x 12.95mm case, the COSC-certified automatic Caliber 3532 La Joux-Perret movement runs in 26 jewels for 44 hours at 28,800 vph. The case offers a sapphire display back, through which the owner can view the rotor adorned with a vertical Côtes de Genève motif. The case is water resistant to 200 meters. A rugged khaki-colored strap completes the package.
The USA MSRP is $8900.
