Swiss watch brand Frederique Constant expands its Highlife collection by introducing the new limited edition Ladies Automatic Sparkling model.
Introduced in 2021, the Frederique Constant Highlife Ladies Automatic Sparkling was a major success. Now, this timepiece is back in a brand-new version of which just 888 pieces will be made. The sky-blue dial includes glints of stardust; the bezel gleams with a host of diamonds; the hours are marked off on a bejewelled chapter ring.
This new Highlife Ladies Automatic watch features an understated 34mm steel case, fitted on an integrated steel bracelet. It sports a new, bright and powerful sky-blue dial. Strewn with subtle silver fragments amid the sky blue, the dial surface evokes a gently sparkling skyscape that twinkles in the sunlight.
Sixty 0.50-carat diamonds adorn the bezel rim. The dial hosts eight sparkling diamonds, arrayed two by two in the four quadrants of the dial. Between each pair, luminous appliqué hour markers add a refined gleam after sundown. The discreet window placed at 3 o’clock indicates the date. In addition, it has three hand-polished hands for indication the hours, minutes and seconds. Among them, the hour and minute hands come with white luminous treatment.
This timepiece comes with an additional white rubber strap with pin buckle. The original Highlife collection was one of the first to offer an integrated strap system; now the strap is interchangeable, too, and still one of the winning features on the Highlife Ladies Automatic Sparkling.
The three-link steel strap alternates matte and glossy finishes. The rubber strap is secured by means of a pin buckle elegantly decorated with the Frederique Constant coat-of-arms. Like the dial, the case sports alternating brushed and polished surfaces. By contrast, its sapphire crystal is glare-proof, ensuring perfect readability in all circumstances.
Visible through the exhibition caseback, the FC-303 caliber is finely decorated with a spiral motif. This 26 jewel automatic movement provides a 38-hour power reserve.
Limited to 888 pieces, the Frederique Constant Highlife Ladies Automatic Sparkling watch has a retail price of 3,595 Euros.
