    This Concord Saratoga Exor is an extraordinary piece of horology. The case was carved from a solid block of 700 grams of platinum and is also decorated with 60 baguette-cut D-colour flawless diamonds weighing 12.50 carats. The dial is carved from sapphire crystal and in addition to the case, has 23 baguette-cut diamonds forming the Roman numerals. The platinum buckle is set with 34 tapered-cut diamonds with a total weight of 2 carats. A total of 118 diamonds weighing 15.85 carats decorates this outstanding masterpiece. The movement itself is of the highest caliber, featuring a tourbillon, minute repeating, perpetual calendar and even a thermometer. We have been unable to determine the skilled watchmaker responsible for the movement. However, the finishing and style of components used would leave us to believe it was created by the master Christophe Claret.

    Of overall elegant and outstanding craftsmanship, this Concord is unique in every way and one can consider it a masterpiece. The original retail price was a staggering 2 million Swiss Francs.
