Concord Watch For Men: Brand Ambassadors and Celebrity Fans. Today in celebrity timepieces, let’s focus on famous men and women who wear Concord watches. Let’s begin with basketball star Ronny Turiaf and his Concord Watch.

As you may already know Concord Watch is part of the Movado group (which also includes popular brands such as Hugo Boss, Ebel, Lacoste, and Tommy Hilfiger watches). It was founded in 1908 in Switzerland (duh, is there any place else where watches come from?) and it initially focused on the American market. It is now targeting the, in the words of wikipedia, the “ever popular luxury sports market”. Maybe it’s on the right track for in 2008, Concord’s C1 Gravity Tourbillion won the prestigious “Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneve” as “Best design of the year 2008”
Here’s a video of the company’s previous CEO Vincent Perriard introducing one of Concord’s product offerings, the C1 QuantumGravity.
So did you watch the video? Are we the only ones who think that the CEO is hawt. Didn’t we tell you that bald guys are hotties?
