Concord Time

Concord Watches, founded in 1908 in Biel Switzerland holds a highly esteemed and well-regarded heritage of Swiss watchmaking excellence. The brand’s mission was to produce high-quality wristwatches expressly for the American market.

For decades Concord served as private label watchmaker for such prestigious brands as Cartier, Tiffany & Co., and Van Cleef and Arpels, producing high-end luxury timepieces for these renowned jewelers featuring both precious metals and gemstones.

In 1970 the brand was sold and became part of the North American Watch Company. Nine years later, Concord made horological history with the introduction the Delirium timepiece, the slimmest watch ever made with a thickness of 1.98mm.  The Delirium debut also started a trend for elegant ultra-thin timepieces.Concord 0311603

A year later, the Concord Mariner debuted with an even thinner case, measuring just 1mm thick. Both the Delirium and Mariner were highly popular and sought-after. In 1986, Concord introduced the Saratoga collection for men and women, featuring elegant sporty lines in high-end metals, including 18K gold and surgical grade stainless steel.

Twenty-nine years later, the Saratoga watch collection is still being produced by Concord, which along with other prestige brands: Movado, Ebel, ESQ Hugo Boss, Lacoste and Coach is now part of the Movado Group.
