Frederique Constant introduces its all-new Classics Chronograph Quartz Ladies Collection. Each model in the new range is a delightful blend of clean, classic lines that call to mind the wonderful watches of the 1940s and 50s. Add to that the fresh and stylish new face, it instantly attracts the eye and enchants the senses. This new collection is an example of precision engineering and innovation.
The three-part, highly polished stainless-steel case measuring 34mm in diameter, is big and beautiful enough to catch the attention of a feminine wrist. Each watch in the collection is powered by the FC-291 quartz caliber, which ensures precision and reliability, with four jewels and a battery that will last for four-and-a-half years. All three models are adorned with diamonds on the bezel, adding a touch of opulence to an otherwise understated watch.
A convex sapphire crystal protects the delightfully beautiful dials and each watch in the range is water-resistant to 30 meters. All three models feature four separate displays, including a uniquely designed hour and minute hands, a date window at the 3 o’clock position, an individual second’s dial at the six o’clock position, and a fully functional chronograph at the 12 o’clock position. One timepiece in the collection comes with a case finished in rose-gold plated steel, while the other two come in polished stainless steel. The FC-291MPWD2R6 and FC-291MPND2R6 are made of navy-blue calf leather strap with alligator skin, while FC-291MPWD2R2B offers stainless steel and rose gold-plated bracelet.
Frederique Constant creates, develops, assembles and controls a wide variety of mechanical, quartz and connected timepieces at the same time within its 6,200 m2 Manufacture in Plan-les-Ouates (GE). To this day, Frederique Constant has designed 29 Manufacture calibres, including high complications, such as the Tourbillon, Perpetual Calendar and Flyback Chronograph.
In 2015, Frederique Constant launched the Horological Smartwatch, the first Swiss Made connected timepiece featuring a traditional appearance. Powered by a connected module, the Horological Smartwatch represents a new segment in Swiss watchmaking. In 2018, the Classic Hybrid Manufacture succeeded it, combining a mechanical movement with intelligent features and an integrated calibre analysis system. It was followed by the Smartwatch Vitality line in 2020. Equipped with a new generation built-in heart rate sensor, it features a classic dial, combined with a digital display that is revealed on demand. In the same year, Frederique Constant reinvigorated the Highlife collection (1999) with a redesigned case and an interchangeable integrated strap. Three new models are shown: the Highlife Perpetual
Calendar Manufacture, Highlife Heart Beat and Highlife Automatic COSC.
Frederique Constant is currently present in nearly 3’000 points of sale in 120 countries across the world. In 2016, the Frederique Constant group (Frederique Constant, Alpina Watches, Ateliers deMonaco) joined the Japanese group Citizen, so as to pursue its international development and nurture new synergies.
