This week let’s discover the Swiss watches Blackout Concept. A brand whose links with the automobile are numerous, as you will see.
Blackout Concept was created in 2006 by Fabrice Letellier, a watchmaking enthusiast whose past is essentially automotive. After being a professional race driver, he ran an engine preparation company.
In the early 2000s, he appreciates customization and circulates in black matte cars with black rims … hence the idea of ??declining this concept in watchmaking!
Amazing activity for some, Blackout Concept realizes the customization of prestige watches. An activity carried out in Switzerland by Swiss watchmakers qualified and perfectly able to intervene on Rolex for example. This customized customization allows to create a unique watch, which can for example be made on a Rolex.
The brand also offers its own models since 2015, such as this Pilot P-01 Chrono Concept watch. A desire to create a range of quality and affordable quartz watches.
For this watch, BOC has selected a movement of the electromagnetic mecaquartz chronograph type from Miyota.
In other words, it is a hybrid movement between a mechanical watch and a quartz watch. Seiko had created the Spring Drive technology in 1998 with an electromagnetic regulator that guides a mechanical movement. The objective is to avoid any variation due to shocks or temperature variations, for example.
Designed and assembled in Geneva, this Blackout Concept watch is perfectly in the spirit of the company’s flagship customizations in terms of style.
In terms of presentation, the black stainless steel case has a retangular shape that does not go unnoticed. The matte black look continues on the easily adjustable rubber strap.
The sapphire crystal brings an appreciable solidity, for a watch usable daily without risking an unwelcome scratch. Water resistance to 100 meters, stopwatch, display of the day of the month,
On the back of the case, the number of the copy of this series limited to 300 pieces proves to us that we are dealing with a limited edition.
This Blackout Concept Pilot Watch P-01 Chrono Concept is available in several variants, no less than 6 variations that play on the colors. A box of 4 models Pilot is even proposed, for a price less than 3 watches.
Offer yourself a Swiss assembled watch at a bargain price and with a successful design: the promise of Blackout Concept is kept. The Pilot P-01 watch is attractive and pleasant to wear, and comes with a real originality.
Note that a Blackout Concept watch is guaranteed for two years, and is delivered in a beautiful box rigid, black and zipped with its certificate of guarantee.
