Frederique Constant presents its first watch of 2018, a redesigned Classic Worldtimer Manufacture featuring a new green color pattern.
A world map is etched on the dial and the twenty-four cities are placed on its outer rim just as with previous watches in the family. The date by hand is located at 6 o’clock.
The company is proud of the timepiece’s lack of additional buttons to operate the features, needing only the crown to manipulate all the functions of the watch.
To set the functions you must choose between three settings; the first lets you wind the watch by turning the crown upwards; the second allows the user to set the date and city by turning the crown upwards and downwards, respectively; and the third position allows the user to set the time by turning the crown downwards.
This timepiece operates on two separate discs, one featuring a 24h day-night indicator and a second one with the twenty-four cities.
The FC-718 caliber movement is created in-house and is decorated with Perlages and Côtes de Genève, as well as sporting a 42-hour power reserve. The green timepiece comes with a green alligator strap with white stitches.
Frederique Constant continues to call itself a company with “Accessible Luxury”, pricing this watch at just under CHF 3500 (around $3650).
