Frederique Constant Highlife Automatic Skeleton

Frederique Constant presents two skeleton watches based on their recently revised Highlife family. With a unique skeleton work shaped after the globe, these automatic timepieces herald a new technical and aesthetic challenge. Finely crafted in the centre of the dial, it reveals the inner workings of the Swiss Made FC-310 movement inside.

The highly original cut-out of the Earth at its centre reveals the beating heart of the movement: at 12 o’clock, the balance wheel; between 5 o’clock and 6 o’clock, the barrel, wound by the winding stem found at 3 o’clock.

In a complex play of light and shadow, between the hidden and the exposed, the Highlife Automatic Skeleton brings to life a modern vision of skeleton work and mechanical watchmaking. The open caseback showcases the mechanical workings of the piece and the finishes prized by the Geneva-based manufacturer.

These new Highlife Automatic Skeleton watches will be available as two series of 888 pieces each. The first incorporates the Highlife collection’s much loved colour combination: steel case and strap with blue dial. The piece comes with a second interchangeable strap in navy blue rubber, accentuating its sporty look.

The second variation is a first; a steel version with anthracite grey titanium PVD coating – again supplied with a strap in the same material, as well as another in rubber of the same shade. In the 41mm case contains an automatic movement with power reserve of 38 hours.
