Concord C1 EternalGravity Jewelry Watch
Before it was the EternalGravity, the watch was merely the Concord C1 Tourbillon Gravity watch. The focus being on the tourbillon escapement that was vertically aligned and placed facing outward on the lower right hand of the case. The hand-wound movement featured a power reserve indicator for the movement, a torque indicator, time, and a 12 hour flyback chronograph (placed into one dial) that includes hour and minutes, but not seconds. BNB Concept made the Calibre C100 movement but is no longer around. So perhaps the movement is more interesting because in a sense the artist that made it is dead.
The case has been "retrofitted" with an incredible amount of stone work. All over the case and dial like a spectacular parasite, precious gems have inhabited the design. Love or hate the original, the watch is too blinged out now to ever visualize what lived underneath the sparky diamonds and carnelians. There are a total of 403 gems all over the case and dial, measuring up to 25.31 carats. The all rubber strap has been replaced with a rubber coated alligator strap (actually a good look). The entire watch looks more like alien technology rather than your traditional avant garde watch. It certainly has a "look at me" attitude, especially in gilded form as it is here. Glad they made just one of them as a watch like this should remain a singular novelty. Price you ask? It doesn't really matter, you aren't going to buy one anyway are you?
