Swiss luxury watch brand Frederique Constant is introducing New Classics Manufacture Worldtimer models, which is set to become one of the fastest selling watches the company has ever produced. Frederique Constant is offering two new models of the Classics Manufacture Worldtimer.
Both come with three-part stainless steel cases, finished in beautiful, highly polished rose gold. The ever-popular crystal sapphire see-through case back has been retained for both models, allowing owners to watch the intricate inner workings of the 26 jewel, FC-718 caliber movement.
The first model, the FC-718MC4H4, comes with a Perlage and circular Côtes de Genève decoration on the movement. On the watch face, the gleaming silver dial features an intricate guilloché design at the center, surrounded by striking, hand-polished black oxidized hands and Roman numeral hour markers. As well as the extra-large date counter at the six o’clock position, a 24-hour disc with day-night indicators surrounds the Roman numerals. Finally, around the outer edge of the watch face, the Worldtimer feature shows the time in 24 of the world’s greatest cities, all at the same time. The package is completed by a gleaming black alligator leather strap with an RGP tongue buckle.
The second of the two new models is the FC-718WM4H4. Offering all the functionality and many of the same features as its “sibling,” this model’s dial features a stunning silver world map at its center. In addition, the polished hands are an elegant midnight blue colour, and the hour indexes are luminous.
The extra-large date counter, day-night indicator and Worldtimer cities feature all combine to give this model that always sought after “wow” factor. For this model, the alligator strap comes in a rich brown. Both of the new Worldtimer models are also water resistant to five atmospheres (50 metres below sea level).
These models are being launched at a price that is certain to please, and every watch will be presented in a stylish wooden gift box. In fact, if there’s any downside at all, it may be that only 1,888 of each model will be offered, so it would be best not to delay.
