Vincent Perriard is the CEO and driving force behind HYT, and first experimented with the liquid indicators while the CEO of Concord, with the C1 Quantum Gravity. He likes big, complicated watches, with a flavor of the Royal Oak Offshore mixed with a dash of, maybe, Hublot. Here are a couple of his creations at Concord, and they were priced similarly to Hublot and a bit high for Concord's brand power. While he was there, Concord was down to a handful of employees, and I don't think production of the C1 exceeded four figures to any great extent, but these really captured a lot of attention when they first came out.


C1 Big Date and C1 Mk. II Chronograph, both with La Joux Perret hot-rodded Valgranges movements.

How's the Big Date holding up, Rick? I have liked them since I first saw them.

None of my watches get worn every day, but it still looks new. The deployant is ingenious but uncomfortable if I rest my wrist on the table when typing, but that's the only issue.
