Swiss luxury watches with a wallet-friendly price tag: Frederique Constant (Video)

In the following video, we’d like to present the vision behind the brand as well as the individual production steps until their watches’ completion. According to Peter Stas, Founder and CEO, the brand’s philosophy is quite simple: “In two simple words: Accessible Luxury”. Ever since the company’s founding in 1988, the creation of timeless designs at affordable prices is particularly (but not only) addressed to younger watch enthusiasts.

The brand also offers a collection of watches with in-house calibres. Especially, the Slim-Line Collection as well as the Heartbeat model have become integral part of the brand’s portfolio. From simple hand winding movements to minute repeaters, all of these watches are assembled per hand within Frederique Constant’s four walls.

Two watch highlights featured in the video:

Frederique Constant Slim Line Moonphase Blue (0:49) 

This stunning Frederique Constant moonphase watch is part of the Manufacture collection and employs the inhouse-made calibre FC 705. The dial looks amazing together with the mercury blue sky of the moonphase indicator. As mentioned above, almost all watches listed here employ an inhouse caliber. The date is indicated by a small hand that circulates the moonphase subdial. Using an additional hand for the date is usually found in watches that feature full or perpetual calenders. The watch measures 42 mm and comes on a black kroko leather strap.

Frederique Constant Worldtime Manufacture Blue (0:58)

This worldtime watch manages to be fully functional without the need for a rotating bezel or a second pusher/crown. By doing so, Frederique Constant has preserved the classic and elegant look for their Worldtimer series. This model has a case measurement of 42 millimetres and captivates with its breathtaking looks and a stunning dark blue dial.
