Frederique Constant Classic Manufacture (New Models - FC-710MS4H6 & FC-710MB4H6)

Frederique Constant has been developing and producing its in-house Manufacture Calibers since 2004. The first caliber was the Heart Beat Manufacture, cal. FC-910 with its iconic aperture on the dial and main-plate at 6 o’clock position. Development of the second base caliber, FC-700 by Frederique Constant started in 2008, where the main purpose was to transfer the watch-making expertise of the Heart Beat Collection into more accessible timepieces. Thus, in 2012 the brand introduced the FC-710, as the entry price for the Manufacture Collection. In time, these models became such best-sellers that they remained within the collection.

This year, Frederique Constant honors this successful collection by bringing forward two new dial versions.
A more vintage, art déco look takes over the dial in two variants, black and silver. The absent guillochage and slimmer printed Roman indexes make up for a very classical dial. These two timepieces feature a 42mm diameter steel case holding a handcrafted in-house movement.
The automatic FC-710 caliber is in-house developed, produced and assembled. The high-end finishing and the elegance of these manufacture pieces characterizes this quintessential collection.
The hours, minutes, seconds and even the date by hand at 6 o’clock are all easily adjusted by the crown. The see-through back case allows you to discover the highly decorated movement displaying perlage and circular Côtes de Genève decoration.
