Service Recommendations for your Concord
It is recommended that the mechanical movements in Condord timepieces be inspected and serviced every 3-5 years. Quartz movements requires an inspection at every battery change and serviced the initial service every 5-6 years. Like any other finely-tuned mechanism, a Concord watch requires routine maintenance to ensure its optimum performance. A watch keeps time by transmitting power by a wheel train connected to the watch hands, and in order to reduce friction, the pivots of these wheels are turning in "jewels" - small synthetic rubies. Special lubrication is applied to these jewels to minimize friction. Over time, however, the lubrication can deteriorate, causing the watch to run erratically or stop altogether. When a movement is said to be "dry," it means the lubricating oil has started to congeal and a complete maintenance is then needed.

Concord Models We Repair
Founded in 1908 in Bienne, Switzerland, Concord launched itself with the goal to capture the American market. Its two young founders carved out a niche for themselves by crafting luxury timepieces in platinum, diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires. In 1945, President Harry S. Truman presented Concord watches to Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin at the Potsdam Peace Conference.
Concord was the first timepiece company to produce a wristwatch made of coins, and in 1979 the company introduced an analogue watch, the Delirium, that was the thinnest watch ever made, measuring only 1.98 mm thick. Concord later beat its own record by producing the Delirium 2, which measured only 1.5 mm thick.
What Makes Concord Watches Unique
Concord watches have been produced for over a hundred years and have been worn and gifted by Presidents and dignitaries all over the world. Concord has pressed the limits of Swiss watchmaking through its innovations, such as the ultra-thin Delirium and Delirium 2, while also combining durable construction and complex designs.
