    In today’s difficult economic climate, FREDERIQUE CONSTANT is proud to announce Year-to-Date growth of 9% for the January-May period compared to 2014. The continued growth of the company is a reconfirmation of its Accessible Luxury positioning.
     
    At Frederique Constant, our focus is creating luxury timepieces with an intrinsic value usually greater than the offer price of the products being sold. Intrinsic value involves the quality of product both in terms of design, materials used in manufacture and adherence to Swiss watchmaking standards as well as traditions. Our timepieces are exclusively manufactured by hand while the processes involved are regulated with the latest precision equipment available in the industry backed by years of research & development.
     
    It is important to note that luxury products are not just about their prices alone, but also mostly about the quality of the item being purchased. Quality refers to the constituent materials used in making the product, the finesse and extent of the craftsmanship involved and the reputation of the brand behind the product.
