Frederique Constant Amour Heart Beat Ladies Automatic Watch - Designed by Taiwanese-born Movie Star ShuQi

Feb 10, 2011
Frederique Constant is delighted to present its new Amour Heart Beat Ladies Automatic Collection, designed by the Taiwanese-born movie star ShuQi.

An ambassador for Frederique Constant since 2008, the accomplished actress has been actively involved in the brand’s charity campaigns in China, with the Paint a Smile Foundation and Beijing Children’s Hospital.

This year, ShuQi joined efforts with the designers within the manufacture and the new exceptional Amour Heart Beat Ladies Automatic watches were born.

Reserved intentionally for modern women, each new timepiece is available with a gently rounded stainless steel or rose-gold plated case. It measures 34 mm in diameter. The body of the new Frederique Constant watch is outlined by a graceful bezel. Its surface can be brightened by 48 full-cut diamonds, characterized by VS clarity and H color. The overall weight of the jewels comes to 0.74 carats.

The case is equipped with a charismatic winding crown, set with a blue or amber cabochon. The crown is found at 3 o’clock. The front part of the case is assembled with a convex sapphire crystal. The company’s peerless artisans have also fitted the model with a screw-down see-through case-back. Its water-resistance is assured down to 6 ATM.

Inside the comfortable case is hidden a self-winding FC-310 caliber movement. It proudly reveals a perlage finishing on the balance’s bridge opening. The power reserve, provided by the mechanism, constitutes 38 hours.

The aforementioned caliber serves to animate the functions, presented on a charming dial. Offered in opaline white, sweet vanilla or gourmet chocolate, it boasts an outer ring with a mother-of-pearl decoration. The center of the dial is inlaid with a guilloched hearts pattern. The display captures the time with hour, minutes and seconds hands. They turn over jewels-set hour-markers and a Roman numeral at 6 o’clock.

The face of the new Frederique Constant Amour Heart Beat Ladies Automatic watch catches and holds the gaze with a heart-shaped opening, exposed at 12 o’clock. It is embellished with 37 full-cut diamonds, distinguished by VS clarity and H color. The overall weight of the precious stones constitutes 0.15 carats. This appealing heart acts as a letter in the word “Amour”, artistically written in the upper part of the display. Moreover, this opening permits a glance into the intricate workings of the movement.

A satin strap, dressed in grey, sweet vanilla or gourmet chocolate, completes the features of the classic, yet supremely elegant Frederique Constant lady’s watch. Each version of the model presented is issued in a limited edition of 888 pieces.

The new collection will share its success with those less fortunate in life: for every watch sold, the company will donate the cost of a life-saving heart scan to the International Children's Heart Foundation.
