Frederique Constant Classic Worldtimer Manufacture
Frederique Constant returns to its iconic Classic Worldtimer Manufacture with the presentation of this sophisticated "citizen of the world". The golden tones of the case make a pleasing contrast with the chocolate colour of the dial, which is finely etched with a world map and circled by a day/night indicator, with 24 reference cities around the outer rim. The date is pointed by a hand in a subdial at 6 o'clock. A further circle of hour-markers ensures perfect legibility without detracting from the harmonious layout of the dial as a whole. This long-haul traveller packs some genuine feats of technique, orchestrated by Frederique Constant's FC-718 proprietary movement. Not a single pusher or corrector spoils this watch's clean lines, as each function is controlled by the crown for unparalleled simplicity of use, a first for a worldtime complication.
