The C1 Big Date Radar displays a rigorously disciplined approach to its mission that leaves nothing to chance. Setting the pace with its raised hour-markers, it offers a perfectly calibrated display of time that follows its appointed course within an environment blending innovative design with sophisticated technology.
Endowed with a rugged look, a strong character and a distinctive personality, the C1 Big Date Radar asserts its unique style within a black PVD-treated steel frame built according to Concordís iconic principles of robust case construction. Its bezel is straddled by eight black rubber-clad protective tabs, secured by side screws and forming a rampart around the imposing 3.3 mm thick sapphire crystal topping the dial.
The latter is also black and plays with contrasts and depth effects to ensure optimal readability. While the steady traffic of the hands follows its assigned path along the textured ìrunwayî, the one dedicated to minutes stands out by gliding under 3D hour-markers hovering above the dial. Enhanced by superluminova, they act like landing strip lights and echo the other luminescent elements such as the date with its hollowed double window at 12 oíclock, and the triangular tip of the small seconds disc rotating continuously at 6 oíclock.
This new horological ìaircraftî is piloted by an automatic mechanism with a 44-hour power reserve, and its rotor adorned with a vertical ribbed CÙtes de GenËve motif is visible through the transparent case-back. Its smooth-running mechanism is matched by an extremely rugged khaki-colored technofiber strap that injects an even larger dose of energy into this taut, muscular model.
