Charlie Paris’ Concordia GMT is a Feat of Contemporary Design and Artisanal Watchmaking
With French heritage in mind, each Charlie Paris timepiece combines functionality with uncompromising aesthetics.
Founded in 2014 by two childhood friends, Ambroise and Adrien, the Parisian watchmaking house, Charlie Paris, will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year. Although new to the watchmaking landscape, it has quickly made a place and a name for itself thanks to contemporary, elegant designs with an eye for detail and quality. Indeed, this brand has the distinction of having all its models designed, assembled and quality-controlled in the heart of Paris, just above their boutique, by in-house watchmakers.
Born of a desire to promote French expertise, Charlie Paris wants to remind the world that France remains the cradle of European watchmaking, and it’s this heritage that the brand wants to highlight. This is why it stands out among artisan watchmakers by promoting “made in France” and offering models with meticulous design and finish.
Charlie Paris also stands out for its philosophy of sobriety, authenticity and sustainability. The founders firmly believe that timeless elegance lies in sobriety, and this is reflected in the design of their watches. Each watch is designed to be an art object in its own right, combining functionality with uncompromising aesthetics. Charlie Paris
Once again, Charlie Paris has managed to surprise us with the launch a few days ago of their new Concordia GMT collection. The automatic Concordia GMT, available in four colors, is a singularly elegant watch with a diameter of 40mm and a thickness of 12.5mm that will fit most wrists.
The case is in 316L stainless steel, with a blend of brushed and polished finishes for an elegant look. The unidirectional rotating bezel with 120 clicks and luminova dot at 12 o’clock gives it the look of a real diver.
To ensure water-resistance, it features a screw-down crown with red tightening indicator and crown protector, making it water-resistant to 300 meters. In terms of visibility, this GMT features a curved, 3mm-thick, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, ideal for observing dial details. On the back, a transparent caseback reveals the mechanism of the Swiss Soprod C125 movement.
Currently available in 4 colors (blue, black, brown and green), the Concordia GMT can also be customized to your taste with three types of strap (leather, nylon and steel). Only available in 50 and 100 pieces for the blue version, this Concordia GMT may well be sold out before the end of the pre-order period. Charlie Paris : Concordia GMT.
