Frederique Constant Highlife Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Manufacture Limited Edition

Frederique Constant presents a high complication watch that combines two iconic horological complications: Perpetual Calendar and Tourbillon. Belongs to the Frederique Constant Highlife collection this timepiece is available in 18 carat rose gold and stainless steel versions. The Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar watch is equipped with the FC-975 Manufacture self-winding movement.

Frederique Constant Highlife Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Manufacture Limited Edition

Within the 41 mm case with the integrated strap characteristic of the Highlife collection, Frederique Constant has organised its complications into four segments.

The brand has arranged the day and date counters horizontally so that they can be read in a natural and intuitive way in a fraction of a second.

Frederique Constant Highlife Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Manufacture Limited Edition

Brought together in a single counter at 12 o’clock are the month (large hand) and leap year indication (small hand). Adding the finishing touch to this perfectly mastered aesthetic composition, the tourbillon balances it out at 6 o’clock, counting down the seconds with its central hand.

Frederique Constant Highlife Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Manufacture Limited Edition

The FC-975 calibre is designed, produced and assembled in very limited numbers at the Geneva-based manufacture. For greater precision, Frederique Constant has equipped it with a silicone escapement – both the escape wheel and the lever.

The inner workings of this exceptional movement can be admired from any angle on the Highlife Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Manufacture, on the dial side and on the back. Correctors used to set the watch are discreetly tucked away in the caseband.

Frederique Constant Highlife Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Manufacture Limited Edition

The two versions are dominated by the colour blue. On both sides of the complications on display, Frederique Constant has opted for a face without a dial. This allows you to see the inner workings of the FC-975 Manufacture calibre, alongside the delicate blued screws, perlage and subtle Côtes de Genève.

Frederique Constant Highlife Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Manufacture Limited Edition

It also improves the contrast between the rhodium-plated movement and the perpetual calendar display. To ensure it is easy to read, the Manufacture has also been careful to give them recessed counters on two levels, so as to better capture the light.

Frederique Constant Highlife Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Manufacture Limited Edition stainless steel version

Although the Highlife Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Manufacture is strictly limited to 30 pieces for the rose gold version and 88 for the steel version, collectors can create different looks for their numbered and engraved watches. Each one comes with two straps, which can be swapped around at will, without the need for tools.

Frederique Constant Highlife Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Manufacture Limited Edition rose gold case back

The rose gold version comes with a topstitched alligator leather strap, alongside a second rubber strap, reinforcing the urban and contemporary attitude that the Highlife Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Manufacture can take on in seconds.

This same rubber strap also comes with the steel watch, alongside a steel strap with a three-link design comprised of polished and satin-brushed links and a folding buckle bearing the Frederique Constant hallmark.

Frederique Constant Highlife Worldtimer Manufacture

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.

Frederique Constant Highlife Worldtimer Manufacture

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.

Frederique Constant Highlife Worldtimer Manufacture

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).

Frederique Constant Highlife Worldtimer Manufacture

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.

Frederique Constant Highlife Worldtimer Manufacture

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.

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.

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.

Frederique Constant Highlife Automatic Skeleton

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.

Frederique Constant Highlife Automatic Skeleton
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.

Frederique Constant Runabout Chronograph Automatic, New Models with Navy Blue Dial

Inspired by the deep-blue hue associated with the marine world, Frederique Constant presents two new Runabout Chronograph Automatic watches.

Since 2009, Frederique Constant has been creating special edition timepieces in partnership with the RHS (Riva Historical Society). Introducing this year, the two new Runabout Chronograph Automatic watches with Navy blue dial, complement this emblematic collection. Each comes in a limited edition of only 888 pieces.

Frederique Constant Runabout Chronograph Automatic, New Models with Navy Blue Dial

Each model shares a 42 mm polished case with two push-pieces to start, stop and reset the stop-watch. With an anti-glare sapphire glass bezel, it features a guilloché pattern that will play with the reflections of light like sun on the waves.

Frederique Constant Runabout Chronograph Automatic, New Models with Navy Blue Dial

To enjoy perfect readability, this guilloché centre, a real signature of the Runabout collection, is surrounded by a satin-finish hour circle to which luminescent Arabic numerals are applied superimposed by large, also luminescent, hands.

Frederique Constant Runabout Chronograph Automatic, New Models with Navy Blue Dial

At 6 o’clock a date windows stands out, thus offering the piece perfect harmony with its stop-watch balanced against the signature of the Maison at 3 o’clock. The whole is worn on a navy blue calfskin strap with off-white overstitching.

Frederique Constant Runabout Chronograph Automatic, New Models with Navy Blue Dial

The two models are distinguished by their choice of materials. In a very chick sport approach, elegant and associated with the noble watchmaking of Geneva to which Frederique Constant remains attached, a first case is offered in plated pink gold, whose warm hue is repeated in the hands and contours of the hour markers.

The second model offers the modernity and simplicity of a light, bright steel case, also repeated in the hands and hour marker contours.

The exclusive nature of these editions, each limited to 888 pieces, is indicated on the back of each piece in two places. Firstly, by the individual number engraved on each watch. And secondly, by an original imprint representing the official RHS flag, featured on the sapphire crystal of the watch.

Frederique Constant Runabout Chronograph Automatic, New Models with Navy Blue Dial

Visible through the sapphire crystal back is the self-winding FC-392 calibre, which provides a a 55-hour power reserve, a real first in the collection – until now the Runabout timepieces offered a power reserve of only 46 hours.

Frederique Constant Highlife Monolithic Manufacture Only Watch 2021

Swiss watch brand Frederique Constant has announced its participation to the 2021 edition of the Only Watch auction, which will take place on November 6th, 2021, and for which the proceeds will be donated to the Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy.

This year, Frederique Constant is unveiling an exclusive timepiece, unique in every respect and a first for the Brand: the Highlife Monolithic Manufacture. Housed in a 41mm case in 18K pink gold, its revolutionary escapement beating at 40 Hz is housed within a dial open to the FC-810 movement bearing hand-polished chamfers on the bridges and Côtes de Genève decoration.

Frederique Constant Highlife Monolithic Manufacture Only Watch 2021

Traditionally, the Only Watch charity auction is based on a simple principle: each participating brand donates a unique piece. The proceeds of the auction are then donated to a research fund dedicated to the fight against Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

For the 2021 edition of this prestigious charity event, Frederique Constant is offering a Highlife Monolithic Manufacture, an exclusive and unprecedented creation, the one and only one equipped with the Monolithic oscillator housed in a dial open to the Manufacture FC-810 movement, all wrapped in an 18K pink gold Highlife case.

Frederique Constant Highlife Monolithic Manufacture Only Watch 2021

This is the 30th Manufacture movement produced by Frederique Constant – a significant number for a brand that recently celebrated its 30th anniversary. Based on a flexible monobloc oscillator, it was developed – in collaboration with the Dutch company Flexous – with four objectives in mind: a size comparable to that of a traditional balance wheel, the highest possible frequency, a power reserve of 80 hours and a solution allowing the production of significant quantities at an accessible price.

Last March, Frederique Constant revealed the Slimline Monolithic Manufacture, the first timepiece in the world to benefit from such a technical solution and such a small size. Entirely monobloc and made of silicon, it is insensitive to magnetic fields and temperature variations.

Frederique Constant Highlife Monolithic Manufacture Only Watch 2021

Of the 26 components of a standard assortment, there are now only three, spread over a single level. Thanks to its frequency of 288,000 vibrations per hour (40 Hz), it drives a seconds hand that takes 80 steps per second. Imperceptible to the naked eye, they offer the rendering of a perfectly fluid and continuous movement.

Until now, the Monolithic oscillator had only been offered in the Slimline Manufacture line. This choice demonstrated both the power of Frederique Constant’s R&D department and the ability of this invention to blend into a very refined case, in keeping with the traditions of Fine Watchmaking.

Frederique Constant Highlife Monolithic Manufacture Only Watch 2021

Today, the Brand is presenting this concept in its Highlife collection for the first time. This choice was made in order to promote the Only Watch auction in the best possible way. A charity action so dear to Frederique Constant’s heart, and in which the Manufacture has participated for 14 years without interruption.

This aesthetic choice confirms the versatility of the Monolithic concept. The revolutionary escapement naturally finds its place in the 41 mm case with interchangeable bracelet. Its proportions harmonise fluidly with its soft curves, and the balance between the date counter at 12 o’clock and the escapement at 6 o’clock is fair and proportionate.

Frederique Constant Highlife Monolithic Manufacture Only Watch 2021

The dial reveals the finely angled movement enhanced by elegant and intense blue Côtes de Genève. According to the finest watchmaking tradition, this remarkable creation bears chamfers on the bridges that have been hand-polished.

In the centre, there are two pink gold-plated hands, imprinted with luminescent material and characteristic of the Highlife collection. They echo the applied hour-markers designed in the same way, arranged along a silvered flange.

Like all Frederique Constant Manufacture creations, the Highlife Monolithic Manufacture also features a crystal caseback that offers the view of its angled and circular-grained movement.

Frederique Constant Highlife Monolithic Manufacture Only Watch 2021

Only Watch, as an exceptional event held every two years in Monaco under the patronage of Prince Albert II of Monaco, has over the years become a global concept, under the impetus of its founder Luc Pettavino.

The sale itself is preceded by a travelling exhibition of all the pieces, starting at the Monaco Yacht Show (September 22th-25th) and ending in Geneva (November 6th). It will allow collectors, amateurs and enthusiasts, as well as media representatives, to discover the creations. In between, Asia, the Middle East and the American continent will host their own stages, the dates of which will be announced in the coming days.

On Saturday November 6th, 2021, brands, partners and donors will be invited to the Four Seasons Hôtel des Bergues in Geneva. The auction, organised with the support of Christie’s, will start at 2pm (in the room, online, over the phone and by purchase order) and will end around 4pm. The funds raised will be donated to the Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy, perpetuating the humanist and altruistic spirit that has governed its destiny since 2005.

About Only Watch

Only Watch is a biennial charity auction of one-off luxury timepieces created by the finest watchmakers for research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Only Watch has become a world-renowned charity event, with its success due to the generosity, altruism and willingness exhibited by watch brands, donators, partners and organisers at every stage of the journey. All participating brands offer their watches, whilst partners offer their services, logistical and/or organisational support. Since its first edition in 2005, Only Watch has aggregated over 70 million Euros which enabled to finance numerous scientific and medical research programmes.

The event is organized by Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (Monaco Association against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy) under the patronage, with the support, and in presence of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco.

Frederique Constant Vintage Rally Healey Automatic Small Seconds (Vintage Rally, New Edition 2021)

Swiss luxury watch brand Frederique Constant expands its Vintage Rally collection by unveiling three new versions of Vintage Rally Healey Automatic Small Seconds model.

The Frederique Constant Vintage Rally collection is based on a close collaboration with Austin-Healey, the two brands having joined forces back in 2004. Counting 17 years of fellowship geared around sport and watchmaking, theirs is one of the most enduring associations in the industry, reflective of the unbreakable bond the two maisons share in drawing on tradition to create thoroughly modern designs, especially for those who truly appreciate craftsmanship and elegance.

If the Vintage Rally collection has seen many wonderful breakaways in its time, 2021 is one of the few years to produce not just one, but three editions of the same vintage. Authenticated by the original “Healey” logo marked on the dial, these Vintage Rally Healey Automatic Small Seconds are in fittingly short supply, with only 888 pieces of each one available.

The green version is probably the most iconic of all. Extending across the whole dial, this particular shade of British racing green alludes to the legendary colour of the Austin-Healey company. A study in contrast and a return to the roots of one of the most iconic rally car colours, ‘British racing green’ has long been associated with the vintage Austin Healeys that are especially desirable among collectors now.

For this model, Frederique Constant has opted for luminescent silvered applique hour markers with the 6 and the 12 being more generously proportioned – one of the distinguishing features of the Vintage Rally collection.

The piece has an off-centre small seconds hand at 9 o’clock. It is counterbalanced at 3 o’clock by a date window. Running around the dial is the flange complete with 60 minute scale, all set within a 40 mm diameter case, a favourite with collectors on account of its timeless quality.

Finally, the perforated strap has received particular attention; on this ‘racing green’ model, it comes in brown leather. Not found anywhere else on the watch, this colour also recalls the upholstery of the beautiful cars from the 1940s to the 1970s, as well as the gloves worn by gentlemen drivers in their element.

The second version (FC-345HGS5B6) of the new Vintage Rally Healey Automatic Small Seconds has gone the opposite way aesthetically, in all grey. Modern and understated, the dial and strap are both mid-grey. The piece is characterised by 50 shades of grey, its steel case, leather strap, dial, index hour markers and hands included.

Finally, the last version (FC-345HNS5B4) is supposed to be the most classic, aligned as it is with the fine watchmaking that Frederique Constant has always championed in Geneva.

The case backs of these three new models have been engraved with a Healey being driven at full throttle; the famous Healey 100S NOJ393 was purchased by a collector for £155 in 1969 and sold for nearly €1 million in December 2011. Each piece comes in a collector’s gift set, complete with miniature replica of the NOJ393.

Frederique Constant Slimline Monolithic Manufacture – 40Hz

With this technical masterpiece, Swiss watch maker Frederique Constant redefines the principles of mechanical watch regulation. This watch is equipped with a revolutionary high-frequency oscillator that beats at the rate of 40Hz (288,000 vibrations per hour).

Frederique Constant Slimline Monolithic Manufacture - 40Hz

Etched from silicon, its oscillator replaces an assembly of several parts and eliminates many of the major weaknesses of mechanical watches. Thanks to its specific design and reduced size, the oscillator has been designed to fit inside a traditional movement configuration. The high-tech, yet reasonably priced luxury watch features a 40mm case with an aperture on the dial to view the oscillator.

Frederique Constant Slimline Monolithic Manufacture - 40Hz

The high-frequency oscillator of the Slimline Monolithic Manufacture watch was developed in partnership with Flexous, an innovative horology-oriented technology branch of YES!Delft, a leading Dutch tech incubator.

The way mechanical watches are regulated has not changed during the last three centuries. The invention of the sprung balance in the 17th century has exerted a lasting influence on mechanical watchmaking. Since then, mechanical watches have relied almost exclusively on the sprung balance.

Consisting of a thin, coiled spring attached to the balance wheel, it allows the balance to oscillate back and forth at a constant frequency. In doing so, it controls the speed at which the gears of the watch rotate and influences the rate. Although it has been improved over time, the principle of the sprung balance has remained unchanged and virtually unchallenged for over three centuries.

Frederique Constant Slimline Monolithic Manufacture - 40Hz

In this new timepiece, Frederique Constant replaced 26 components of its standard assortment with a single component fitted with two regulation weights. Made of mono crystalline silicon, the Monolithic oscillator also integrates the escapement anchor in its flexible structure. Three novel innovations distinguish the oscillator:

1. A revolutionary small-size one-piece oscillator. Thanks to the geometry of flexures and masses, it is possible to produce for the first time a flexible pivot oscillator in the footprint of a traditional balance wheel

2. An ultrathin oscillator with a new anchor system. The escapement anchor is incorporated into the oscillator and, for the first time, its function is integrated into the flexures allowing a substantial reduction in size while keeping all the functions in one thin silicon layer

3. Adjustment weights to regulate the flexure oscillator just like those used on a traditional free-sprung balance. Watchmakers can easily fine-tune the frequency and precision by simply turning two weights

Frederique Constant Slimline Monolithic Manufacture - 40Hz

Thanks to the clever engineering of the oscillator’s flexures and geometry, Frederique Constant’s team reduced its dimensions to the size of a conventional regulator and increased its frequency for enhanced accuracy. While many traditional mechanical movements operate at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, the Monolithic Manufacture represents the first Swiss-made mechanical watch oscillating ten times faster at an astonishing 288,000 vibrations per hour, or 40 Hz. Despite this high-speed frequency, the efficiency of the mechanism delivers a substantial 80-hour power reserve.

Frederique Constant Slimline Monolithic Manufacture - 40Hz

The new topology of the flexures and masses has permitted the creation of an unprecedented compact size for a flexure pivot oscillator (9.8mm in diameter and 0.3mm in thickness). For the very first time, the anchor has been integrated within the flexure. The revolutionary design combines high-frequency (40 Hz) with low amplitude (6° versus ~300° for a regular balance wheel).

The choice of material for the oscillator eliminates key weaknesses of traditional sprung balances. Monocrystalline silicon is 100% anti-magnetic, resilient to oscillations in temperature, less sensitive to gravity and four times lighter than a regular assortment. The absence of mechanical coupling means a lower generation of friction and wear on the parts.

Consequently, less power is needed to drive the escapement wheel and the oscillating system. It reduces force between the components: 2.5 times less torque/couple is generated. In particular, the energy waste related to the stop and go motion of the Swiss lever escapement are eliminated. Finally, yet importantly, silicon does not require lubrication. This enhances the long-term reliability of the escapement and avoids the oiling demands generated by high frequency.

Frederique Constant Slimline Monolithic Manufacture - 40Hz

The rate regulation is performed using adjustment weights, just like the system used in a traditional free-sprung balance. The setting system is extremely precise, dividing time intervals in hundredths of a second versus tenths of a second for regular mechanical movements running at a 4Hz frequency.

Given the innovative design of the escapement, the traditional devices to measure the rate of the movement (which rely on the ticking sound of the movement) are inoperative. To calculate the average rate in seconds per day, laser cameras taking 250,000 images per second were used.

This is the 30th Movement from Frederique Constant’s Manufacture. It soon became apparent to Frederique Constant’s watchmakers that a traditional gear train could not cope with the breakneck speed of a 40Hz regulator. This led to the design of a completely new base movement – automatic calibre FC-810 – capable of performing with the speed of the new silicon oscillator.

The entire kinetic chain had to be re-engineered, and the gear train was fitted with four wheels between the barrel and the escape pinion, instead of the three wheels found in a conventional movement. However, the efficiency of the regulator still manages to deliver a substantial 80-hour power reserve.

In a regular mechanical movement beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour, the seconds hand makes eight moves to complete one second. With the FC-810 Monolithic Manufacture calibre, the seconds hand performs 80 moves per second.

Frederique Constant Slimline Monolithic Manufacture - 40Hz

Presented in a 40mm round case, the new watch features an elegant dial with a guilloché/stamped hobnail pattern, printed Roman numerals paired with Breguet-style hands.

Frederique Constant Slimline Monolithic Manufacture - 40Hz

The signature Frederique Constant Heart Beat was the perfect model to showcase the pulsating oscillator of the watch in an aperture at 6 o’clock. The pointer date at 12 o’clock creates a classic counterpoint to the high-tech oscillator at 6 o’clock.

Frederique Constant Slimline Monolithic Manufacture - 40Hz

On the reverse side, an exhibition caseback offers an unimpeded view of the automatic FC-810 calibre. Its traditional decoration combines Geneva stripes with perlage, and the oscillating weight is open-worked.

Frederique Constant Slimline Monolithic Manufacture - 40Hz

The model is available in three limited editions: 810 pieces in stainless steel with a blue dial, 810 pieces in stainless steel with a silver colour dial and 81 pieces in 18k pink gold.

Classics Quartz

With its three new “Classics Quartz” models, Frederique Constant is reaffirming its vision for timeless, affordable and beautifully finished watches.

Frederique Constant Classics Quartz watch

Within a 40 mm steel case housing a silvered dial in blue or black, the super sleek and understated aesthetic focuses attention on the essence of time measurement: two hands for the hours and minutes, along with the date window.

Frederique Constant Classics Quartz watch

In the absence of seconds hands, there is nothing to distinguish this Classics Quartz aesthetically from a mechanical watch. Indeed, there are more subtle similarities, thanks to its high level of finishing: the sunray-brushed dial, polished case, applied hour markers doubled at 12 o’clock and topstitched nubuck-finish leather strap or three-link steel bracelet.

Frederique Constant Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture in 18-carat Rose Gold

Frederique Constant presents the new Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture in 18-carat rose gold, a very special timepiece limited to just 30 pieces.

With this rare timepiece, Frederique Constant hails the return of its Highlife collection. Created in 1999, it is making its comeback in 2020, having been entirely overhauled. Its distinctive redesigned case houses a dial decorated with a globe motif. Symbolising the Earth, the perfection of the circle, it is also the icon of a new generation that shares the same ideal for saving the planet, sustainable and sensible living.

Now available with a diameter of 41 mm, the watch also features an integrated strap. The lack of horns allows for greater flexibility and helps it sit naturally on the wrist. The design necessitates perfect continuity between the lines of the case and the strap, a smooth transition and natural – almost imperceptible – fluidity. A special system allows for its straps to be changed in a flash, without the need for tools.

Frederique Constant Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture in 18-carat Rose Gold

In this 18-carat rose gold rendition, the Highlife’s exquisitely decorated dial is shown off to its very best advantage. Optimum legibility is ensured by the sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. Complementary rose gold and deep blue echo each other. Every finishing touch is enhanced by amazing reflections, like the case, with its alternating polished and satin finished surfaces.

Every counter (month and leap year, day and date) is sun-brushed. Index hour markers are rose gold-plated and luminescent. In keeping with the sleekness of the case design, all of the perpetual calendar’s correctors have been integrated, lending emphasis to the lone rose gold crown at 3 o’clock.

Frederique Constant Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture in 18-carat Rose Gold

From the design to the final quality control, each and every step involved in making the Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture is carried out in-house. Very few Geneva-based Manufactures can demonstrate such watchmaking mastery. This rare 18-carat rose gold colourway serves to reinforce the exclusivity of this timepiece.

Powered by the Manufacture FC-775 calibre, a self-winding mechanical movement, the 18-carat rose gold Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture beats at a frequency of 28,800 vph and has a power reserve of 38 hours.

It comes on a blue nubuck finish alligator strap, unique to this model. For collectors and connoisseurs of fine watchmaking, the movement, featuring intricate perlage and Côtes de Genève decoration, can be admired through the sapphire crystal caseback.

Frederique Constant Flyback Chronograph Manufacture About Vintage Special Edition

Swiss luxury watch maker Frederique Constant has created a special limited-edition timepiece in collaboration with the vintage-inspired Danish watch brand About Vintage. The new timepiece, 1988 Flyback Chronograph, is available online on About Vintage’s website. It is available in a limited edition of 32 pieces to mark the 32nd anniversary of Frederique Constant.

Frederique Constant Flyback Chronograph Manufacture About Vintage Special Edition

Designed in Denmark and developed in Switzerland, the 1988 Flyback Chronograph is a redesigned version of Frederique Constant’s famous Flyback Chronograph Manufacture.

When Frederique Constant and About Vintage decided to join forces on this new timepiece, it was in fact not the first time for the two watch makers to share visions. Back in 2018 they designed the 1988 Moonphase which became the most exclusive timepiece in About Vintage’s collection. However, this has changed as they welcomed the new 1988 Flyback Chronograph, since this is more exclusive both in limitation, quality and price.

Frederique Constant Highlife Heart Beat

Joining this year to the Frederique Constant Highlife family is the Highlife Heart Beat, a new interpretation of the Swiss watch brand’s iconic open-heart design.

Over 25 years since the first Heart Beat timepiece, many collectors still associate Frederique Constant with this distinctive design today, which reveals the inner workings of its movement at midday. Through this aperture, those who truly appreciate mechanical timepieces can watch the rotation of the balance wheel in their watch, its beating heart.

Frederique Constant Highlife Heart Beat

The new Highlife Heart Beat collection revisits this iconic design and brings it into the 21st century. Located at the pole of the globe decoration on the dial, the famous aperture is finished with three luminescent hands. The design is understated, minimalist and as modern and unique as ever. You can look straight into the inner workings of the automatic FC-310 caliber with power reserve of 38 hours and admire it from both front and back through the sapphire crystal.

Frederique Constant Highlife Heart Beat

There are now three different versions of the Highlife Heart Beat to choose from. The first features a white dial and rose gold-plated case with a brown leather strap (complemented by a brown rubber strap), the second features a blue dial with a steel bracelet (complemented by a blue rubber strap) and the last features a black dial with a steel case and bracelet (complemented by a black rubber strap).

Frederique Constant Highlife Heart Beat

Elegant and refined, sporty chic or modern and bold, each variation offers up an interpretation of the Heart Beat design, which more than a quarter of a century since it was created, has proven to transcend fashions and trends.

Frederique Constant Highlife Edition 2020: The Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture, Highlife Heart Beat and Highlife Automatic COSC

Frederique Constant revisits its Highlife collection by adding three new models: The Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture, Highlife Heart Beat and Highlife Automatic COSC.

The Highlife collection created by Frederique Constant in 1999 has not only impacted the history of the Manufacture, but that of watchmaking as well. The original embodied all the values that contributed to the success and longevity of the Brand. Firstly, there is the sophisticated horological nature of the design, inspired by the most stunning examples of traditional fine Swiss watchmaking with high-quality finishing. Then, there is the careful attention for a fair and proportionate price, allowing as many people as possible to access Swiss Made luxury, a cause steadfastly and rigorously defended by Frederique Constant for over 30 years.

Frederique Constant launched the first models in the Highlife collection with the Triple Time series. One year later, the collection was supplemented by a tourbillon and the Brand’s emblematic Heart Beat aperture. On proving a huge hit, the collection was quickly expanded and diversified, notably by integrating a perpetual calendar, a chronograph and Manufacture movement, as well as designs for women.

Thanks to its wide range of qualities, its exclusive design would appeal to men and women of all ages. Consisting of a steel case allowing for a steel bracelet or a leather strap to be added, it represented a real aesthetic and practical breakthrough. An ingenious idea from an entirely independent manufacture that would help the Highlife collection stand out on account of its versatility.

Bolstered by these advances, the Highlife collection is now making its comeback. Two years of development were needed to give birth to these three models: The Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture, Highlife Heart Beat and Highlife Automatic COSC.

Faithful to the original collection from 1999 and still designed according to Frederique Constant’s same key values, the new Highlife collection shares certain fundamental characteristics in being finely crafted, Swiss Made, affordable and engineered for everyday use.

The three models have the same 41 mm case. True to the Brand’s DNA, they present a modern yet elegant, or sport chic appearance, and have been designed for the next generation of collectors eager to embrace luxury Swiss Made timepieces.

Like the original inspiration, the Highlife 2020 collection has an integrated bracelet. The lack of horns allows for greater flexibility and helps the watch sit naturally on the wrist. The integrated design is infinitely more complicated to conceive than any strap with horns. The process requires perfect continuity between the lines of the case and the links, a smooth, regular but gradual transition to the clasp and natural fluidity that should be almost imperceptible.

The integrated system also allows the wearer to change the bracelet with ease. With no need for any tools or accessories, you can change the look of your watch just by pressing. From a steel bracelet, a leather, crococalf suede or rubber strap, the Highlife can be restyled in seconds.

To switch between a sporty, urban, or stylish look, all you need to do is press on the two push-pins at the end of the bracelet or the strap to disconnect it from the case and, just as easily, click a new one into place. Frederique Constant supplies all new Highlife models with two alternatives at no additional cost. A leather strap or a steel bracelet are fitted as standard and accompanied by a second rubber strap, supplied with the model of your choice. A set of three additional crococalf suede straps in brown, blue and black can also be purchased separately.

All the new models in the Highlife collection have a decorated dial. In the interests of unifying the collection, each one features the same globe motif. The sapphire crystals on the dial side in the new Highlife collection benefit from an anti-reflective treatment on both sides.

Frederique Constant Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture

Complete with a perpetual calendar, this piece is powered by the Manufacture FC-775 caliber, a self-winding mechanical movement.

Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vph, it has a power reserve of 38 hours. Its perlage and Côtes de Genève can be seen through the sapphire crystal caseback.

As for the dial, the Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture is characterised by three counters: day at 9 o’clock, month and leap year at 12 o’clock, date at 3 o’clock. A moon phase at 6 o’clock completes the set. Discreet controllers placed in the middle of the case make it possible, as with the crown, to adjust all the indications. For optimum legibility, the hand-polished hands and index hour markers are tinged with luminescent material.

Frederique Constant Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture

Three different variations of the Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture are already available. The first is characterised by two-tone styling, combining steel and rose gold plating on the bezel, bracelet and crown. Out of the white decorated dial come rose gold-plated hands and index hour markers. The piece is also supplied with a textured black rubber strap featuring a rose gold-plated buckle.

The second version is mostly plain blue with silver hands the same colour as the index hour markers. The original steel bracelet is complemented by a second blue rubber strap with a steel pin buckle.

Finally, the third version comes with a black leather strap, complemented by a second rubber strap, also in black. Modern and refined, the piece features a white dial with silvered index hour markers and hands, filled with luminescent material.

Frederique Constant Highlife Heart Beat

Over 25 years since the first Heart Beat timepiece, many collectors still associate Frederique Constant with this distinctive design today, which reveals the inner workings of its movement at midday. Through this aperture, those who truly appreciate mechanical timepieces can watch the rotation of the balance wheel in their watch, its beating heart.

Frederique Constant Highlife Heart Beat

The new Highlife Heart Beat collection revisits this iconic design and brings it into the 21st century. Located at the pole of the globe decoration on the dial, the famous aperture is finished with three luminescent hands.

The design is understated, minimalist and as modern and unique as ever. You can look straight into the inner workings of the automatic FC-310 caliber with power reserve of 38 hours and admire it from both front and back through the sapphire crystal.

Frederique Constant Highlife Heart Beat

There are now three different versions of the Highlife Heart Beat to choose from. The first features a white dial and rose gold-plated case with a brown leather strap (complemented by a brown rubber strap), the second features a blue dial with a steel bracelet (complemented by a blue rubber strap) and the last features a black dial with a steel case and bracelet (complemented by a black rubber strap).
