Concord C1 Tourbillon Gravity
Here we also find an example of the watch that I believe kicked off the short-lived era of “monster” complications, that brainchild of then Concord CEO Vincent Perriard (now HYT) and the now-defunct BNB: the Concord C1 Tourbillon Gravity (lot 125) with its deconstructed tourbillon shown in a window at the bottom right corner of the case. I’ll be curious to see how this one does.
