FRÉDÉRIQUE CONSTANT – CLASSIC MOONPHASE AUTOMATIC
A classic rebooted
The new Classic Moonphase Automatic captures Frédérique Constant’s love of classic and sophisticated watches. The Swiss brand has unveiled three models from its famous collection for the first time.
Frédérique Constant has introduced the latest pieces from one of its star collections, the Classic Moonphase Automatic. The painstaking detail, materials and technology used by Frédérique Constant give the timeless range the quality and classic style so dear to the brand’s fans. Frédérique Constant is true to its vision of making top quality and affordable watches.
The Classic Moonphase Automatic epitomises these values. 2016 is the first time that three models have been unveiled in a 40mm case: one in yellow gold-plated steel, one in stainless steel with a leather strap and one entirely in stainless steel. There’s something for everyone.
The self-winding FC-330 calibre in the new watches fuels the hours, minutes, seconds and date with hand on the silver dial adorned with Clous de Paris engraving, black Roman numerals and classic Breguet hands. The date appears in a counter and the moon phase lies in an elaborate display at 6. Flip the watch over to gaze at the decorated movement through the transparent back. The strap comes in black, brown or blue leather or steel.
Frédérique Constant is famous for being involved in every stage of the watchmaking process from initial design to final assembly and quality control. Since its foundation in 1988, Frédérique Constant has designed, made and assembled its calibres in-house and boasts a collection of 21 different movements created since 2004. Every watch is hand-assembled using modern equipment and goes through thorough checks to ensure the watches’ quality and longevity.
