Frederique Constant Classics Manufacture Worldtimer – New Models – FC-718MC4H6B & FC-718WM4H6B

The two Classics Manufacture Worldtimer models launched in 2012 by Frederique Constant were well appreciated by horology lovers from all over the world. In 2014, two new unique and visually spectacular timepieces from this line will be launched.

Both models are powered by the FC-718 Manufacture caliber, with 26 jewels and a 42-hour power reserve, one of the most technically advanced ever produced by Frederique Constant. The true genius of these Classics Manufacture Worldtimer models, however, lies in the simplicity with which all the amazing features can be accessed. As well as the hour, minute and second hand displays, an extra-large date counter at the 6 o’clock position and a 24-hour disc with day-night indicators circling the hour and minute indexes, both models also display around the outside of the dial the time in 24 of the world’s greatest cities, all at the same time. All these functions are easily accessible through a single crown, thanks to the extraordinary dedication and work by Frederique Constant’s engineers and designers.

Both of the new models are presented with highly-polished, three-part stainless steel cases, convex sapphire crystals and the see-through case back. As robust as they are good looking, these watches are water resistant to 50 metres.
