The best quality Concord C1 Biretrograde replica watch that I liked the most. At the last Basel show, the American-run Swiss watch making company has revealed a number of new models from their C1 family including an outrageous Quantum Gravity and some variations on their more practical Chronograph watch.
When it comes to sporty (i.e. those that you can wear with chinos and a polo shirt) watches I especially like models where rose gold comes together with rubber or carbon.
Although I am definitely not the greatest fan of mens fake Concord watches, their C1 Chronograph model with its brutal design and unusual dial layout certainly appeals to me getting an honorable third position in my Best Sports Watches List right after the legendary Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore and the foppish Hublot Big Bang 44mm chronographs.
The combination of materials not only provides the watches with a much dressier look, but also makes their design language more legible. To me, the monochromatic stainless steel Offshores and the C1 chronos look dull, boringly chunky, and absolutely uninspiring.
While most Concord’s watches certainly experience significant problems with legibility (this is especially true for models that feature silver dials and stainless steel hands), the Biretrograde features a surprisingly high-contrast dial layout with their golden hour and minute hands perfectly legible against the dark gray dial.
Well, I guess now you understand why I immediately fell in love with this Concord C1 Biretrograde watch replica: there is rose gold, there is black rubber and there is Concord’s trademark multi-layered dial protected from the elements by a 3.3mm thick sapphire crystal. Almost perfect combination, to me.
