Frédérique Constant “Runabout” Edition 2009

Frédérique Constant presents its new “Runabout” series. A new automatic chronograph issued in a limited edition of only 1’888 pieces worldwide, and created after a maritime inspiration that pays tribute to the legendary “Runabout” yachts of the 1920’s.

An elegant duo of automatic chronographs with a design perfectly adapted to the fascinating and nostalgic, teak-wooden luxurious motor yachts of the 1920’s, created to celebrate the brand’s involvement in the annual ‘Hélice Classique’: A sophisticated event honouring the classical Runabout yachts and organized by the <<Societé Nautique de Genève>> on Lake Geneva, Switzerland.

In-line with the brand’s codes, this outstanding timepiece with its classical yet contemporary design features meticulous finishing and detailing. Presented in steel or in rose gold plated, the rounded case with a diameter of 43mm is hand-polished and exposes a finely decorated dial with a “Pavé de Paris” guilloché decoration. The applied and polished indexes, following the material used for the case, guarantee clear readability.

As a delicate hint to the maritime theme, a boat’s propeller is engraved on the case back and a ‘porthole’ offers a glimpse of the movement. To emphasize on the special value of this timepiece, it is delivered in a gift box that offers a miniature duplicate of a legendary “Runabout” yacht.
