Conquering Antarctica with Matthieu Tordeur

Conquering Antarctica with Mathieu Tordeur. In November, the young adventurer Matthieu Tordeur will attempt the expedition of a lifetime, the crossing of Antarctica in total autonomy over nearly 1150km. An exceptional fight that will last nearly 50 days in temperatures down to -70 degrees. An adventure during which Matthieu Tordeur will wear a foolproof watch: the CONCORDIA.

We have therefore designed and developed the CONCORDIA to meet the extraordinary specifications of this expedition. Non-magnetic (internal case in soft iron), waterproof to a depth of 300 meters, it is able to withstand extreme temperatures, down to –70 °.

10% of the kickstarter campaign will be donated to Matthieu Tordeur to finance his expedition.

1. ABOUT THE CONCORDIA

Why CONCORDIA? Concordia means "Harmony" in Latin and is also the name of an Antarctic-based research station, one of three stations inside the Antarctic continent to operate year round!

The collection is available in an automatic version 40mm in diameter with rotating bezel and a more accessible quartz version 38mm in diameter. These two versions are available in four colors each: blue, black, steel and full black. All watches will be numbered.

AUTOMATIC CONCORDIA

The Concordia Automatic is the one that will be worn by the adventurer during his expedition. The oils of the Swiss automatic movement ETA 2824-2 have been changed so that they do not freeze when the temperature reaches -70 °. A watch with a quartz movement would discharge too quickly with such extreme temperatures. With its rotating bezel and very legible hour indicators, it takes on a sporty and elegant look.

  • Case: Diameter 40 mm, in polished and brushed steel. Special internal non-magnetic device in soft iron.
  • Bezel: Rotating brushed steel with reference points for intermediate indications
  • Case back: Screwed in steel, with the logo of the "Objectif Pôle Sud" expedition
  • Movement: Swiss mechanical automatic winding, ETA 2824-2 caliber, XX rubies, XX vibrations / hours. 40 hour battery life.
  • Functions: Hours, minutes, seconds, date.
  • Dial: Black, blue and steel with luminescent indexes.
  • Glass: Sapphire, anti-reflective, XX mm thick.
  • Water resistance: 300 meters.
  • Strap: Ultra resistant lined nylon or steel.
  • 2 year international warranty

 

CONCORDIA QUARTZ

The Concordia Quartz is a more accessible version with a smaller diameter than its big sister. Waterproof, reliable, sporty, elegant and discreet, it has all the technical characteristics of a “toolwatch” which will allow you to practice sports and diving without worry.

  • Case: Diameter 38 mm, in polished and brushed steel. Special internal non-magnetic device in soft iron.
  • Back: Screwed in steel, with the logo of the "Objectif Pôle Sud" expedition
  • Movement: Quartz 1S3
  • Functions: Hours, minutes, seconds, date.
  • Dial: Black, blue and steel with luminescent indexes.

A world record

Next November, Matthew will fly to Antarctica, the land described as the most hostile in the world. Matthieu Tordeur will undertake this expedition in an attempt to become the first Frenchman and the youngest explorer in history to ski from the coast of the Antarctic continent (Hercules Inlet) to the South Pole for 1150 km alone, without assistance and in total autonomy.

The land of extremes

Called the "land of extremes," Antarctica is described as the most hostile continent on the planet. Antarctica is the coldest, driest, windiest and highest average-altitude continent on the planet. The lowest temperature recorded on the white continent has reached -89oC and winds can blow up to 300 km/h.

 

3. About Matthew

Through a series of expeditions on 5 continents, Matthieu Tordeur climbed, swam, rode, sailed and traveled nearly 100,000 km. Never travelling without his camera, he documents his adventures through books, magazines, documentaries and photographs.

Matthieu Tordeur is now the youngest member of the prestigious Society of French Explorers (SEF). Like Nicolas Hulot, Sylvain Tesson and Thomas Pesquet, the members of the SEF dedicate their lives to exploration, discovery in all its forms and the transmission of knowledge.

Many media are already talking about this exceptional adventure:

Concordia according to Matthew

"The watch has always been the indispensable accessory of all explorers. It's even more valuable in Antarctica where it will be day 24 hours a day and the watch will be my only time marker in this ice desert. Mechanical watches are also much more reliable in the cold than electronic equipment, which has very low temperature no longer works."
