In 2004, Frederique Constant joined the group of top Swiss watchmakers that entirely execute their movements in-house. The glorious debut of the Frederique Constant Heart Beat Manufacture collection was a genuine breakthrough for the young, yet promising brand, based in Geneva. Later on, the company proved its ability to be independent.
Nowadays, this top Swiss brand is at the front of the grid in terms of manufacturing its proprietary movements.
This year, Frederique Constant has launched its evolutionary Maxime Manufacture Automatic watch. Animated by the innovative, in-house manufactured FC-700 caliber, the watch eloquently demonstrates the high level of excellence as regards to technical novelties and movement development.
Simultaneously, this watchmaker succeeds in taking the watch design to the new heights. The groundbreaking case design is presented as a perfect combination of straight lines and rounded hand-polished surfaces. The process of polishing demanded many hours of intensive work.
The Frederique Constant watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, exposes both matte and polished components. Its case houses a silvered, guilloche dial.
The traditional, yet up-to-date, austere, but extremely understated timekeeper is accompanied by an integrated alligator strap.
