Founded back in 1988, Frederique Constant is a relatively new brand in the watchmaking world, especially when you compare it with other renowned Swiss labels, but the company based in Plan-les-Ouates, Switzerland, has quickly become a name synonymous with incredible timepieces and innovative designs.
One of their iconic watches, the Frederique Constant Classic Worldtimer Manufacture, has now been refreshed to show off a deep brown dial matched by rose gold plating on the case. Boasting a 42 mm polished stainless steel case, this eye catching watch features no pusher and its said to be able to handle 50-meter deep waters before letting the see-through sapphire crystal display case back to be damaged.
The world map on the dial features a lighter shade of brown to provide contrast, and in keeping with the brown theme, the hour ring and city ring are both rendered in various differing shades of brown. This Frederique Constant Classic Worldtimer Manufacture watch also features hands hand-polished and plated with rose gold, which make the entire picture even more appealing.
The beautiful case hides the Frederique Constant FC-718 in-house movement, which beats at 4Hz and it’s backed up by 42 hours worth of power reserve. Oh, and keeping in line with familiarities – the $4,195 price tag will not surprise anyone. That’s pretty affordable, right?
