Frederique Constant first launched in 1988 and soon created their first collection of men’s watches built with a Swiss made movement. Since then the company have been focussing on growing their skills and talents within the world of haute horology and have developed a number of exquisitely manufactured in-house movements. It allows the company the flexibility to design their timepieces exactly how they want, equipping them with powerful engines that perform peerlessly at impressive rates inside water resistant houses. Many of Frederique Constant’s watches are displayed through sapphire-backed cases. This glass lens grants the perfect view into the company’s world of haute horology, thanks to its anti reflective and scratch resistant technology.
Frederique Constant’s own in-house manufactured automatic movements are the bread and butter to their authentic watch manufacture. They have become the reason why watch collectors from all over the world are adding them to their collections. Aside from their unbeatable performance, automatic Frederique Constant watches are also loved for their stylish aesthetics. Sad an official UK stockist of automatic Frederique Constant watches here at Owen & Robinson, we like to think our collection perfectly sums up some of the company’s greatest milestones to date. Timepieces for women as well as gentlemen can be found within this collection – some with complications, others simple and classic. Choose automatic watches from the Classics Index collection and the Manufacture Classics watch collection to name just two examples.
Frederique Constant have created a line dedicated to automatic models from the Classics collection, with watches that feature clear, spacious three handed dial designs dressed in alluring silver shades. The guilloche texture applied to the surface of these dials is achieved through engine turning techniques which give every timepiece added depth and dimension. The beautifully decorated central hands feature a circular icon – a design that is recognised in Breguet watches. With yellow and rose gold PVD coated bezels or classic stainless steel cases to choose from, these designs are perfect as an everyday companion for the wrist of the modern gent.
The Frederique Constant Classics Index watch from our collection with a smooth silver dial and elegant Roman numerals, is a sophisticated timepiece for the office, for socialising or for travelling in. The design is equipped with a robust stainless steel link bracelet to match its steel casing and offers a simple three handed dial design for easy time reading. The entire dial is protected by a sapphire glass lens which is also used on the underside of the watch where it exposes parts of the in-house developed automatic caliber FC-303 movement consisting of 26 jewels.. As a comfortable and stylish timepiece for wearing throughout the week – this watch from the Classics Index collection is an all-round crowd pleaser. For something a little more technical, the Frederique Constant Manufacture Flyback Chronograph watch is a sporty yet professional-looking timepiece. The Flyback function allows the gent to reset a timing and start a new one with one simple push of a button as opposed to completing the process in three separate stages. The watch features an anthracite dial with a trio of chronograph sub-dials at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, and of course, a tachymeter scale around the periphery of the dial.
