Concord was founded in 1908 in Biel, Switzerland and in 1915, they started working with companies like Van Cleef & Arpels, Tiffany & Co. and Cartier (jeweller) on providing them with high quality watches made out of precious metals and gems. In 1942, President Truman gifted Concord watches to Stalin and Churchill during World War II peace talks, solidifying their position as a leading luxury watch brand.
