Swiss watch brand Concord unveils C1 NightRacer Limited Edition, an exceptional C1 model that is designed to commemorate the 7th running of the only Grand Prix night race in the world. Singapore hosts the world’s one and only Grand Prix night race, and this year’s edition is scheduled on September 19, 2014. With the limited production of 25 pieces only, the Concord C1 NightRacer will be sold exclusively by Cortina Watch Singapore.
The Grand Prix Race has the added drama of taking place in the heart of Singapore’s steamy, densely built city center, adding to the excitement of this international event which is attended by celebrities from all over the globe.
The C1 NightRacer blends into the night with a sturdy 47mm diameter black PVD-finished Grade 5 titanium case detailed by black PVD-treated titanium and black ceramic decors, black ceramic pushers, an octagonal black carbon fiber sub-bezel and screw-down crown.
A black carbon fiber dial with red highlights symbolizes both the night for which this exclusive watch is named, as well as the iconic red colour associated with the Grand Prix – a nod to the importance of this annual event in Singapore today. It is defined by gunmetal gray-plated polished hour-markers and hour, minute and seconds hands, as well as the Concord trademark “C” logo artfully curled around the date window at 3 o’clock.
To ensure optimal comfort for stylish sports enthusiasts, the C1 NightRacer comes with a strap of black rubberized calf sewn onto rubber with red topstitching, and an alternative, second strap in red with black stitching. In testimony to this singular event –the C1NightRacer’s black PVD-coated titanium open case-back naturally bears the brand’s “Audace-Savoir-Faire-Avant-Garde” signature engraving.
