Basel 2013 Concord C1 Chronograph Review

Basel 2013 Concord C1 Chronograph
Pre-Baselworld 2013 Concord C1 Chronograph
  W&R has enjoyed the evolution of the C1 over the years, though, never written about them here. This is new improved C1, from a standpoint of wearability (smaller case) and legibility. For a chronograph, the textured dial is relatively uncluttered, with masculine hour and minute hands. No doubt this watch C1 Chronograph from Concord will set you back pretty penny. The good news is you are never likely to see it on another persons wrist besides your own.
Press Release:
  Concord unveils its legendary chronograph from a completely new angle. The C1 Chronograph shows how an emblematic design has brilliantly evolved to remain perfectly aligned with the times. Sharing the same DNA and avant-garde personality as its slightly larger older sibling, this new timepiece has no trouble making its mark with a marginally smaller crown, improved readability, and a wrist-hugging, ergonomic case. Like the reference model, the new C1 Chronograph stands out for a sophisticated design with an artful blend of high-tech materials, including eight ceramic inserts around the distinctive bezel. A brilliant demonstration of Concord's talent for beautiful timepieces that cut to the essence.

Pros - smaller, easy to read dial, ceramic inlays
Consideration - integrated strap highly limits most change out options
