The Runabout Chronograph Automatic Collection celebrates Frederique Constant’s continuing partnership with the Riva Historical Society, the organisation founded in 1998 with the aim of locating and aiding in the conservation and restoration of the magnificent Riva boats.
The 2014 limited edition Runabout Chronograph Automatic Collection features two models. Only 2,888 of each will be produced. Both are powered by the ultra-precise FC-393 automatic chronograph movement, offering 28,800 beats per hour, 25 jewels and an appreciated 46-hour power reserve. Functions include hours, minutes, seconds, date and a mechanical chronograph. The date window is located at the 3 o’clock position. This model is water resistant to 50 metres.
With a case diameter of 42mm, the dial is protected by a diamond-hard convex sapphire crystal, and both models feature the exceptionally popular see-through case back, allowing owners to view the internal workings of this mechanical marvel. As an acknowledgement of the work they do and the passion with which they do it, the Riva Historical Society flag is etched into the case back glass.
