Frederique Constant’s Hybrid Manufacture will come in three new models and two dials versions when the 2019 models appear later this year.
The watches dominate an emerging watch category where traditional Swiss mechanical watchmaking meets modern connected smartwatch functionality.
They have automatic movements with a smartwatch module that gathers data like step counts with a connected smartwatch app, and receives messaging notifications in the other direction.
Since last year, the watch has also had its own self diagnostics system that measures rate, amplitude and beat error of the manufacture automatic movement and displays the results in the phone app.
This year there will be a silvered dial for the polished stainless steel model, a rose gold-plated version and a navy blue dial in the steel rose gold-plated watch.
Prices start at CHF 3,250.
