Concord Saratoga Automatic Lady, Year of the Horse Edition

In 2013, Concord launched the Saratoga Chronograph in full PVD to mark the 150th anniversary of the famed Saratoga thoroughbred race course located in the US. This timeless Saratoga model celebrated an up-to-the-minute interpretation of the eminently distinguished Saratoga SR launched in 2004, a worthy descendant of the first Saratoga watch to hit the track in 1986.

Now, for 2014, Concord commemorates the Year of the Horse with a special edition Saratoga Automatic Lady – the ultimate in sleek, unbridled sports luxury; a contemporary watch in which the bloodline’s classic features have subtly transformed into ergonomic perfection.

The Concord Saratoga Lady Automatic is offered in a pristine, elegant and understated solid stainless steel version and a second, distinctively different style, resplendent in stainless steel with a bezel brilliantly embellished with 32 magnificent diamonds – both sleek looks are finished with a stainless steel crown.

In tribute to its thoroughbred origins, the case-back of the new Concord Saratoga Lady Automatic is embossed with the collection’s signature emblem of two racing horses – a true reflection of Saratoga’s uniquely prestigious pedigree, associating an enduring love of aristocratic horses with equally noble watchmaking aesthetics. This association is further echoed on the white mother-of-pearl dials of these two special editions which are etched with a sophisticated horse pattern in homage to the Year of the Horse. They are detailed with ten sparkling diamond markers and rhodium-plated Roman numerals at 6 and 12 o’clock.

Both options are firmly reined on a distinctive stainless steel mesh bracelet with gleaming stainless steel links throughout, resulting in greater suppleness and thus enhanced comfort. A mechanical self-winding movement with 38-hour power reserve succeeds once again in making this newest development in the Saratoga line a shining demonstration of technological advances in action. The case offers the added advantage of being water resistant to 30 metres to suit the most adventurous spirits.
