o celebrate its 50th anniversary, Pequignet, the only French haute horlogerie manufacture, draws on the best of its history to present Concorde, a new signature collection. The model builds a bridge between proven know-how and assertive design. The natural continuity to 50 years of French watchmaking excellence, Concorde reinterprets Pequignet’s salient codes.
Concorde revisits Pequignet’s heritage. It is a modern take on all the fundamentals of the brand including steel, link, and of course a manufacture calibre. It is the perfect illustration of Pequignet’s unique positioning: an inseparable combination of aesthetics and technology. Powered by the Calibre InitialTM, the latest movement designed and assembled by the Manufacture in France, this watch features a new case shape.
Its prestigious movement with two-way winding system provides a 65-hour “weekend proof” power reserve, spanning the entire weekend. Concorde also has a date aperture with a semi-instant display driven by a patented complication of its Calibre InitialTM. The Calibre InitialTM meets Pequignet’s sustainability requirement: all of its components are sourced within 80 km of the factory; 72% are French.
A new signature link, inspired by the iconic Moorea, has been developed exclusively for Concorde. Its spearhead links are a subtle reference to the obelisk of the famous Parisian square after which Concorde is named. Pequignet is renewing its DNA by creating a new bracelet designed by its French designer- engineers 39 years after the Moorea launched in 1984.
The steel case morphs three-dimensionally from square to circle, harmoniously balancing the triangular lugs of the bracelet to give body to a watch with soft geometric shapes. Available in two 40 mm or 36 mm cases, Concorde adapts to all wrists. Its round dial is available in 6 colours: gold, silver, imperial green, navy blue, anthracite grey and pink (only available in 36 mm).
Available from September 2023, Concorde upholds the spirit and style of Pequignet with elegance and distinction. This collection embodies the unique vision of time of this French manufacturer whose signature is “L’heure et la manière”.
