Men’s Frederique Constant watches are defined as pieces of “accessible luxury”. Established in 1988, the first collection of Frederique Constant watches for men was created – a line of six models fitted with Swiss quartz movements. Today the manufacture is known for their huge array of various designs, both quartz and automatic versions of which are available for men and women. Frederique Constant watchmakers have risen to unparalleled heights in the Art of horology since the company launched, enriching the status and reputation of these beautifully manufactured watches and enhancing their popularity. As an official UK stockist of men’s Frederique Constant watches here at Owen & Robinson, we are most proud of our ever-growing collection. The designs vary from complications to simple three handed designs, and moonphase features, small seconds dials world timers and chronographs. Every timepiece from the men’s Frederique Constant watch collection is designed entirely from start to finish at the company’s Plans-les-Ouates manufacturing facilities. Creating the timepieces this way gives each watch a unique feel and a treasured place amongst any connoisseur’s wristwatch collection.
Men’s Frederique Constant watches are loved so much for their versatility, their comfortable wearing nature and their classic style. The timepieces have been manufactured from a sophisticated blend of high-end materials which ensure longevity and quality in every watch. Rose gold design features, yellow gold PVD coated bezels and smart brown, black and blue leather straps belong to this special collection of men’s watches. Movement component production, calibre assembly, watch assembly, and extensive quality control strategies are all carried out in the company’s manufacturing facilities. Every watch starts from an initial discussion between designers and employees to consider marketing, sales, communication and workshops. The design is then pencil sketched before the manufacturing process finally begins where traditional hand-made methods are combined with cutting edge machinery. Frederique Constant uses computer aided design software, to assist in the watch design and development processes – the model will then be built component by component.
To make a good men’s watch, its design needs to be comfortable and versatile. The gentleman must feel smart and stylish whether wearing it to an important business meeting or whether dining in one of London’s top restaurants. Frederique Constant manage to bridge that gap, creating designs like the Classics quartz, the Slimline Classics and the Manufacture Classics watch. Timepieces like Frederique Constant’s Horological Smartwatch are perfect for those gentlemen in need of something a little more technical, since these instruments help keep track of things like sleep tracking, calorie burning and step counting.
The Frederique Constant Manufacture Classics Automatic watch from our collection for example, with a sleek black dial and matching black leather strap, is a smart design for wearing in the office or for combining with an elegant evening ensemble. The dial features a date ring at the south of the dial, punctuated by silver hands and indexes. This watch is powered by the automatic in-house caliber FC-710 movement consisting of 26 jewels. It sits inside a 30 meter water resistant stainless steel case attached to a sapphire crystal glass lens.
