Frederique Constant Now Available at Watches of Switzerland
Having established itself as an important player within the Swiss watchmaking industry, and being able to conceive, develop and assemble 30 calibres in-house, Frederique Constant is proud to strengthen its ties with Singapore and Watches of Switzerland. For this special occasion, Frederique Constant presents its most iconic models: the Classics Worldtimer Manufacture, the Classics Heart Beat Automatic, and the Classics Index Automatic.
Iconic Models for Frederique Constant Launch in Singapore
For its launch in Singapore, Frederique Constant will present some of its most iconic models such as the Classics Worldtimer Manufacture, the Classics Heart Beat Automatic and the Classics Index Automatic. Watch enthusiasts will also discover the Highlife collection, which has become the Manufacture’s flagship collection in only two years, offering a product range from a COSC certified movement, a chronograph, to in-house world-timer and perpetual calendar movements.
Emblematic of the brand’s mission to make Swiss watchmaking accessible to most, the Frederique Constant Classics Heart Beat Automatic timepiece houses in a 40mm steel case the FC-310 Heart Beat automatic movement with 38 hours of power reserve. Its silver guilloché dial is enhanced by sleek Roman numerals indexes and the aperture at 12 o’clock that became a signature of the line: the intention was to showcase the balance wheel in order to enhance the beauty of the mechanical movement. Available in three different executions, the Classics Heart Beat Automatic retails for SGD 2,010 inclusive of prevailing taxes.
An achievement for the Manufacture, Frederique Constant released earlier this year the Classics Worldtimer Manufacture, equipped with the FC-718 manufacture automatic movement offering hours, minutes, seconds, date by hand at 6 o’clock and 24 time zones. This model reflects the ambitions of the Manufacture collection: fully developed, produced, assembled, adjusted, and encased in Frederique Constant workshops in Plan-les-Ouates. Available in stainless steel and rose gold case with several dial executions each, the watch retails for SGD 6,050 (steel) or SGD 26,370 (rose gold), inclusive of prevailing taxes.
About Frederique Constant
Frederique Constant is a Swiss watchmaking manufacture located in Geneva, Switzerland. The Maison was founded in 1988 by a couple of independent entrepreneurs, Aletta and Peter Stas, to offer quality Swiss watches at an affordable price, with the aim of democratising luxury Swiss Made watches.
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 30 Manufacture calibres, including high complications, such as the Tourbillon, the Perpetual Calendar, the Flyback Chronograph, as well as a new and unprecedented type of escapement in watchmaking – the Monolithic. Made from a single piece of silicone, replacing the 26 components of a standard assortment, it oscillates at a frequency of 40 Hz, which is 10 times that of most mechanical movements.
We are happy to introduce Frederique Constant to watch enthusiasts in Singapore. Frederique Constant is a manufacture with a unique positioning in the industry, offering quality Swiss watches of good value. The brand has remained faithful to its early vision and has developed 30 manufactured calibres, a prowess for such a young label. We are certain that this marriage of sound watchmaking quality, renewed designed and a forward-thinking vision will capture the attention of the watch community in Singapore.” – Kelvin Lim, Watches of Switzerland.
