Frederique Constant is introducing new model to its successful Classics collection: the Classics Art of Porcelain, a limited edition timepiece that proudly features a handmade and elegant porcelain dial highlighted with accentuated black roman numerals.
The beauty, depth and subtle texture of the handmade porcelain dial speaks for itself, but what makes this model so special is the fact that each dial is made by skilled craftsmen from the Zsolnay Porcelain Manufacture, who ensure that the colour of the porcelain will last for decades.
The Classics Art of Porcelain is presented with a highly polished, 3-parts stainless steel case of 40mm. The porcelain dial features the words “Swiss Made” at 6 o’clock to pay tribute to its Swiss origins, and the Roman numeral indexes give this model a classic appearance.
Driven by the FC-302 automatic calibre, with 25 jewels and a 42-hour power reserve, this watch features the hours and minutes functions. The sapphire crystal case back enables to admire the FC-302 in action and is water-resistant up to 3 ATM. Finally, this elegant timepiece is finished with a black leather strap and will be produced in a strictly limited edition of 188 pieces.
Zsolnay Porcelain Manufacture was founded by Miklós Zsolnay (1800–1880) in Pécs, Hungary in1853. Zsolnay Porcelain Manufacture has produced outstanding works of art. Zsolnay is still headquartered in Pécs, where it also has a museum located in the Zsolnay family’s former home. Zsolnay has gained worldwide recognition at world fairs and international exhibitions, including the 1873 World Fair in Vienna and the 1878 World Fair in Paris, where Zsolnay received a Grand Prix.The history of Zsolnay Porcelain Manufacture is intertwined not only with those of a city rich in historical and cultural tradition and of an exceptionally talented family, but also of the whole of Hungary.
The name of the Zsolnay Family and the depiction of the five towers after which the city was named in the Middle Ages have become known and recognized all across Europe and around the world during the periods when industry and commerce were not restrained by borders, and social and economic development were inspired by a desire for progress, and the uninhibited blossoming of culture and the arts.
