the wave of all superlatives
Nazaré is a small fishing town of 15,000 inhabitants, located in the west of Portugal, known for giant waves up to 20m high. The secret of this spot to reaching such records? A 5 km deep fault in the Atlantic Ocean which stops just in front of the Nazaré lighthouse, forcing the wave formed underwater to stop abruptly and send all its energy back to the surface, creating gigantic waves.
This phenomenon has always existed but surfers were unaware of its existence until 2010 when the town hall sought to bring Nazaré to life in winter by alerting surfers to this potential spot. Nazaré has since been home to legendary waves like the 23m wave, surfed by Garett McNamara in November 2011. Since then, it is here that surfed wave records have been broken. Thus, the Brazilian surfer, Rodrigo Kox, broke the world record for the largest wave ever surfed, in 2018. It was 24.38 meters high, the equivalent of a building of approximately nine floors.
Designed and assembled in France, waterproof to 300m thanks to its crown and screwed back, the “Concordia Nazaré” has an aesthetic that is as sporty as it is attractive. With its sharp and muscular style, its taut lines and its smoked blue dial, the "Concordia - Nazaré" displays a modern and sporty elegance.
On the back of the watch is engraved the topographic map of the depths of Nazaré, this engraving reveals the underwater canyon, located just in front of the famous Nazaré spot and which explains the formation of these mythical waves.
The watch indexes and hands feature Super-Luminova® to allow optimal readability in the dark. The Super-luminova® is the same color as the center of the “smoky” blue dial.
