Which brings me to the this new Concord C1 QuantumGravity Tourbillon watch, a device which does something simple in the most complex appearing of manners. You'd think a mad scientist (or moderately eccentric one at the least) has invested a lot into creating and wearing this 'new kind of watch' watch - when it is in the end just a watch - that tells the time and has a power reserve indicator. The point of the watch is to be a novelty, and in that I would consider it a resounding success. The large 48.5mm wide titanium case is a massive 22mm deep, which is needed for the rich panoramic display of colors and complexities. The overall wrist footprint of This Concord watch is over 57mm, but it is still wearable thanks to the flexibility of the rubber strap. The best way of understanding the QuantumGravity watch (which is not quantum in weight because it is mostly titanium and aluminum) is by looking at the two major areas of interest aside from the case itself.
