Frederique Constant’s movement manufacture sophistication is put to the ultimate test with its Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon Manufacture using the FC-975 in-house movement.
The grand complication watches would not look out of place in a Patek Philippe window, but one of two new models releasing this year can be bought for under $22,000.
Frederique Constant patented the tourbillon cage, which is composed of 80 components all produced with a precision of 1-2 microns by its manufacture’s CNC machine.
The Perpetual Calendar complication displays the day, date and month, which will stay correct for 400 years.
The timepieces are presented in a 42mm diameter 3-part case, available either in polished stainless steel or 18ct rose gold with a see-through case back.
Frederique Constant will make only 88 of the steel model priced at $22,000. There will be 30 gold pieces costing $30,000.
