The Highlife Worldtimer Manufacture, the latest creation from the Frederique Constant Highlife collection, is a true globe-trotter’s timepiece. This contemporary timepiece features a 41mm diameter stainless steel case and a globe engraved dial.
This automatic wristwatch is equipped with the FC-718 manufacture calibre, which was designed, produced and assembled by Frederique Constant.
The self-winding mechanical movement has a power reserve of 38 hours. Through the sapphire crystal case back, one can admire the movement endowed with typical Genevan finishes like perlage and circular Côtes de Genève.
The watch is water-resistant up to 50 metres. Highly user-friendly, its single crown can be used to set any function: hours, minutes, the date at 6 o’clock and the 24 cities disc that represents 24 time zones on Earth, itself engraved in the centre of the piece. There is no day / night indicator required; the inner disc has been engraved with 12 hours on the light area (cities where it is daytime) and 12 hours on the blue area (those where it is night-time).
Blue is the dominant colour of the Highlife Worldtimer Manufacture. It takes up the whole centre of the dial, as well as the date counter, for which Frederique Constant has used its unique sunray guilloché for improved legibility. This is skimmed by three central rhodium-plated hands, including luminescent hour and minute hands that are easy to read, even when travelling to the other side of the world at night.
For this new model, the Manufacture has created three straps. The integrated interchangeable strap from the Highlife collection has become one of its characteristic features.
The first option is a polished and satin-brushed three-link steel bracelet with folding buckle, the second is a blue strap with silky nubuck finish and the third is a blue rubber strap to complement the urban feel of the watch.
