By the way, this is the LV version that I highly recommend.

Not nearly the heft, but in my opinion the much better choice.

I love the anniversary sub... it's too bad it ended.

I think most that own one would say they are glad it did end. I know you would be hard pressed to call this a limited edition, given the numbers that were probably produced. However it still was a fairly short run, which makes it a bit special to own one.

 

Besides if you really want one bad enough, they really aren't to hard to find.

This unusual watch is the Concord Quantum Gravity, which was an experimental tourbillon watch created in 2009 as part of the C-Lab Collection under the aegis of previous CEO Vincent Perriard.

 

The spherical bi-axis tourbillon is physically separated from the watch's movement by a lateral bridge stiffened by cable stays. The watch also features an hydraulic piston power reserve and a very unusual movement bridge configuration. I photographed the prototype at Baselworld a few days after it had been announced. Probably the most intriguing watch at Baselworld that year. Perriard certainly achieved some amazing things during his short tenure at Concord - he's now moved on to HYT and is producing similarly whacky, far-out stuff there.

Just let me know...

 

 

 

 

 

 

...if you want me to stop.

You're going to have to give me a few minutes to... collect myself.

 

Also, maybe a nap.

and maybe a cigarette (and I don't smoke)...

Comic relief for the day.  I would just like to definitively state - before "Anchorman 2" comes out this December, and before the "Ron Burgundy coyote coat" becomes the new must-have winter coat for men - that no frills wore this coat about one full year prior:  

 

 

On topic given TWAT, was wearing the 3970J back then:

(NB: Date for the pic is March given unseasonably cold weather earlier this year, but had the coat in November/December 2012. Hahahaha!)

love that second group Coxaca ... thanks! The Concord is indeed "interesting" but equally hideous at least to my eye.

I live my SubLV! And to the OP, just because production ended doesn't mean you can't buy one.

Just admit, we all thought you were Bruce Wayne, but all along we've been chatting with Ron Burgundy! Great coat! Reminds me of the old "Barron" coats with beaver lapels by Rodex of England (sadly now out of business). Mr. Burgundy, its always a pleasure seeing your 3970J especially with such a cool coat.

People with chronos, such as Daytonas, do you leave the chrono running at all times? I leave mine right now inactive and sometimes people ask why my watch isn't running. Other than draining the power reserve faster, is it bad to leave it running?
