The Concord watch factory was founded in 1908 in Biel, Switzerland. Since its inception, its design has always enjoyed a good reputation, and the watches created are extremely harmonious in terms of appearance and function. In fact, Concord is named for this “harmonious” coordination. Concord means “harmony, coordination”.
In 1915, Concord began manufacturing for the famous brands of high-end watches, such as Tiffany & Co. and CARTERI. These watches are extremely luxurious, made of platinum and embellished with diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires. As a result, Concord is known for its quality watches.
In the 1930s and 1940s, Concord began to pursue slim and compact watches and movements. For decades, with this perseverance, the liver finally succeeded in designing the world’s thinnest watch, Concord Delirium, in 1979. This design has become the focus of global reporting.
This is the world’s first watch with a body thickness of less than 2 mm (1.98 mm). This manufacturing process proves that C0NCORD’s watchmaking technology is unmatched. In just two years, the new Delirium was born again, with a body of only 0.98 mm and a thickness half that of the original Delirium.
In 1992, Concord exhibited “Mariner V Centenario” in the European watch and jewellery exhibition, once again shocking the world. This collection consists of five watches, each with its own unique features and an extremely complex mechanical movement. Shortly before the exhibition, the watch was sold for 3.2 million Swiss francs. The value of these distinctive watches is not only because of its superior materials but also because of its sophisticated structure. These watches have created new standards for the development of watchmaking technology.
In 1995, Concord kicked off Saratoga Exor, a unique watch that combines the art of watchmaking with brilliant gemstones. Exor has a variety of sophisticated features that make it a high-quality watch. In addition, the surface is inlaid with precious platinum and 118 D-class clean diamonds. Since the advent of Saratoga Exor, it has been sold for 2 million Swiss francs.
In 1996, Concord celebrated the 10th anniversary of Saratoga with the launch of the Saratoga SL (Sports Luxury) collection, which interprets the original Saratoga design in a modern style.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, Concord became the maker of clock design. It was also the heyday of the famous Concord alarm clock. In fact, this was the first porwatch clockwork to travel for eight days. This travel clock was familiar to everyone in the past. Therefore, President Truman also used the Concord alarm clock as a gift to the heads of state of the Potsdam Peace Conference. One of the alarm clocks has become a private collection of President Truman and is now being stored in the Truman Independent Library in Missouri.
At the same time, Concord’s design has become a model for modern watches. Concord creates gold and stainless steel watches for its vast market, including the US Army and the US Navy. The fine jewellery watch manufacturers are eager for the movements of Concord watches and later became the main supplier of premium watch movements.
After the end of World War II, Concord created a new medallion watch and uncovering watch. Its high-quality watch has written a glorious page in history. In the 1950s, Concord estimated that the style of the watch would be as important as its function. Therefore, the bracelet watch was specially designed, and today it has become a collector’s treasure.
The Concord watch, which has always been known for its temperament and taste, has left a lot of historical notes for centuries. In 1979, Concord developed the world’s slimmest watch, the Delirium ultra-thin series, which shines on the watch. This year, in 2007, is definitely a new year for Concord. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 2008 Concord watch brand, the new “C1” series was launched. The “C1” series is derived from “Concord 1” and “Concept 1”. The ultra-thick sapphire crystal glass has a change of light and shadow. The original ear structure is a skin-reinforcing muscle. The large and thick case design is To declare the brand’s transformation with “The Watch. Reconstructed.” The combination of 53 detachable parts is composed of five elements modern/technical/surprise/radical/daring innovation.
