Frederique Constant Classic Worldtimer Manufacture- New Version

Swiss watch brand Frederique Constant presents a new version of its Worldtimer model of the Classic Manufacture Collection. Dedicated to the globetrotters of modern era, this redesigned version of Classic Worldtimer Manufacture can track the times of twenty-four world cities.

Rose gold-plated stainless steel and brown patterns make the new Worldtimer, an elegant and sophisticated travelling watch. A dark brown design of the world map finely etched onto to the dial and the twenty-four cities on its outer rim make you wish for the next destination. The date by hand at 6 o’clock seamlessly combines with the Worldtimer function without disrupting the esthetic of the watch. And even though the dial is busy with information, indexes on each hour make reading the time an easy and simple task.
The Classic Worldtimer Manufacture is powered by an in-house developed, produced and assembled calibre holding 139 parts and measuring 30mm in diameter, where the Worldtimer function is completely controlled by the crown. Thus, no additional push buttons or correctors were added which is aesthetically more pleasant and simpler to use. Frederique Constant is the first brand to ever introduce such complication achievement.
The crown has three positions. The first lets the user manually 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; the third position allows the user to set the time by turning the crown downwards.
This Worldtimer features two discs, one displaying 24h day-night indication and a second one listing the twenty-four cities. As a true Manufacture movement, this FC-718 caliber features Perlages and Côtes de Genève decoration, and this particular one holds a 42h power reserve.
