Frédérique Constant Vintage Racing Collection

Swiss Watch Manufacturer Frédérique Constant is known for its classical and refined timepieces of exceptional value. This year, the brand presents new Vintage Racing collection in line with manufacture’s involvement in various classic car events around the world in past years. This new collection was created in particular to celebrate the latest edition of The Ultimate Driving Adventure: Peking to Paris.

Under the premise of its slogan ‘Live your Passion’, Frédérique Constant encourages people around the world to pursue their passion. Having been the official timekeeper of numerous events celebrating classic Austin Healey cars since the beginning of this century, the brand recently announced its role as the Official Timekeeper of the Peking to Paris Motor Challenge. During this fascinating and challenging motoring event, 100+ passionate crews competed in a 9’000 mile long race, driving their extraordinary cars from Peking to Paris.

Frederique Constant succeeded in capturing the vintage feel of the participating cars in an exciting new collection of highly attractive timekeeping instruments.

As an admirer of the strong passion that reigns around the world of these classic & vintage cars, Frédérique Constant managed to combine all the elements which characterize these legendary cars in the three new automatic chronographs of the Vintage Racing collection: refined elegance and technical durability.

The Frederique Constant Vintage Racing timepieces are distinguished by a generous, hand-polished 43 mm case in 316L stainless steel and feature three different dial options. Elegant versions come with a silver dial, animated by blackened steel or rose gold plated indexes and hands. The more sporty version offers a silver dial decorated by black chronograph counters and a black outer-ring. The Vintage Racing Automatic Chrono is equally impeccable from a technical standpoint. Its new mechanical self-winding chronograph calibre FC-396, beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour is visible through the transparent case-back which shows the special rotor engraved with the Peking to Paris logo.

For each version, production is limited to 1’888 pieces. Every timepiece comes in an attractive gift box, alongside an exclusive commemorative plate, showing the route driven by the participants of the latest Peking to Paris Motor Challenge.
