Swiss watch brand Frederique Constant presents its first novelty of 2018, a redesigned Classic Worldtimer Manufacture featuring a new green color pattern. With the new Classic Wordtimer Manufacture, the wearer can track time throughout twenty-four cities worldwide.
A finely world map was etched on the dial and the twenty-four cities are placed on its outer rim just as previous editions. The date by hand is located at 6 o’clock and perfectly fits within the dial. Telling time on this newest timepiece will make keeping time a relaxing and simple experience.
The watch is powered with the FC-718 caliber movement, which is an extraordinary piece of machinery not only because it is in-house designed, developed and produced but also because its Worldtimer functions as well as the date are all adjustable via the crown itself, with no additional push-buttons.
To easily set the functions you must choose between three settings; the first lets you wind the watch by turning the crown upwards; the second allows the user to set the date and city by turning the crown upwards and downwards, respectively; and the third position allows the user to set the time by turning the crown downwards.
This timepiece displays two separate discs, one featuring a 24h day-night indicator and a second one with the twenty-four cities. As a Manufacture movement, the FC-718 caliber is decorated with Perlages and Côtes de Genève, and holds a 42-hour power reserve. The green timepiece is complete with a green alligator strap with white stitches.
The new Classic Worldtimer Manufacture watch will retail at 3500 CHF.
