Concord C2 Y-13

Concord has released a new chronograph in the C2 Y-13. Sounds like a fax machine rather then a watch. :) Anyway, the new watch is inspired by the underground techno-music movement and it shows on the dial and watch design. 

The watch is 43mm in diameter and is PVD gray. Within the stainless steel case, beats an ETA 2894-2 automatic mechanical movement. It is a hefty watch, coming in at 12.75 mm thick, with a 2mm thick sapphire crystal, offering a water resistant rating of 10 ATM. 

The dial, silver toned and glowing with electric green SuperLuminova (almost LED like) has a sub-dial at 3 o'clock that looks like a record or DJ table. The other sub-dials are the 30 minutes counter at 9 o'clock and a 12-hour counter at 6. The watch has the following complications, on top of time telling, date (at 6) and chronograph. 

I do like the design of the hour and minute hands. They are of the dauphine-type, asymmetrically hollowed out, rhodium and SuperLuminova hands. I also like the watch the strap is mounted to the watch case.
