Some of you might remember the iconic Austin Healey Sports Cars, wonderful pieces of automotive history that were produced only as limited editions – 2,888 units, to be more exact. Frederique Constant has been collaborating with Donald Healey’s motor company for 12 years now, and the watchmaker has decided to honor these vintage cars with a special watch.
Called the Frederique Constant Vintage Rally, this gorgeous watch will be available in several versions, featuring either a 40 mm stainless steel case, or a steel 18kt rose gold PVD version, with a convex sapphire crystal that’s able to handle 50-meter deep waters.
The caseback has been engraved with an Austin Healey and the individual number of the watch, making sure the exclusivity of this ‘ticker’ is obvious. Speaking of which, movement is provided by the Swiss automatic Frederique Constant caliber FC-303 with 25 jewels, 28,800 vph and a 38-hour power reserve.
Potential customers may opt out for either a grey with burgundy ring and applied rose gold luminous indeces, or a silver with dark grey ring and applied rose gold luminous indices dial. Polished rose gold plated hour and minute hands or polished pearl black hour and minute hands with SuperLuminova are also on offer, depending on your choice.
All this can be paired with a dark grey leather strap, with either white or red contrast stitching, while a steel or steel rose gold PVD buckle will help this watch adorn your wrist. A chic gift box with an Austin Healey NOJ393 model car will also be coming your way once you decide to purchase one of these beautiful watches.
