Concord C1 QuantumGravity watch

quantumgravity-1

This QuantumGravity tourbillion watch claims to ignore Sir Isaac Newton’s apple-induced law, gravity. But the fact is, any tourbillion counteracts the forces of gravity, and the tech has been around for centuries. Tourbillon watches can tell the time so accurately because the balance wheel and escapements are placed in a rotating cage. When the wrist is moved, the force causes the cage to spin but the inner workings remain unaffected. Still, we’re not sure why this watch needs green phosphorescent nanoparticles (apparently used to indicate power levels). Only 10 of these will be produced, so you can count on them being expensive.
