Time for a Change

To mark its 100th anniversary, Concord, known for its classic watches, is revealing an edgy new image. With its C1 Chronograph, the Swiss watch brand unveiled a stylized, bold COSC-certified chronometer designed to withstand substantial impact. The 18-karat pink gold and black rubber case, 44 mm in diameter, is fitted with a sturdy black rubber-coated protective ring that fits over the case and is secured by eight decorative tabs and screws, and provides optimum protection from any scratches and bumps. The sleek timepiece with a black carbon fiber dial and black rubber straps has a self-winding movement that runs at 28,800 vibrations per hour and has 48 hours of power reserve. The $29,900 watch is being made in a limited-edition series of 200 models. (800.547.4073, www.concord.ch)
