C Lab QuantumGravity Watch


Ich habe keinen blassen Schimmer, wie diese Uhr funktionieren soll (dabei habe ich eben erst ein Video bei Delicious reingepackt, in dem genau das erklärt wird). Ich habe auch keinerlei Ahnung, was die Leute von C Labs in ihrem Text geschrieben haben, der mit der Uhr kommt: „With an aerial bi-axial Tourbillon mechanism, a structure that makes emptiness its core material, a 3D dial, functional elements fitted to the side of the case and an industrial and minimalist spirit, the C1 QuantumGravity timepiece defies all laws, including that of watchmaking logic and most of all, of gravity.“ Hä?

Ich weiß aber zwei Dinge: Diese Uhr sieht wahnsinnig gut aus, ist wahrscheinlich schweineteuer aber dennoch völlig fantastisch, ich meine: Alleine der Name schon! QuantumGravity! Wie gut ist das denn bitte? Hier der restliche Text, der passend zur Uhr Halluzinationen verursachen kann, ich versteh kein Wort, bin aber völlig begeistert.

The Tourbillon carriage, which is fitted outside the movement and case where it is suspended, literally, rotates in a multi-dimensional manner on two axes, the main one being vertical. The design of this disconcerting time device borrows its rigid and light structure from renowned cable-stayed bridges; an extended arm of cables fastened to the plate holds the cage in a vertical position, thus highlighting the sensation of autonomy.

Beneath the impressive sapphire crystal lies a panorama at its most extensive, giving shape to time, which becomes almost immaterial. While the dial strives to display the passing of time, it above all highlights empty space. The depth of its field of vision is dizzying and the feeling of levitation exhilarating. The officer-style hinged back excels in revealing the geometric circuit of the right-angled skeletonized bridges in a gigantic case measuring 47.5 mm in diameter and over 22 mm in depth. Its infinite precision holds many more temporal surprises…

The C1 QuantumGravity timepiece, designed by the “C Lab Series” team in conjunction with BNB Concept, takes watchmaking experimentation even further. It follows the impulse of a brand that defends its conviction of time inevitably linked to space. In this parallel and unconventional world, infatuation with non-conformity underscores Concord’s creative spirit. C1 QuantumGravity is the latest living proof.
