2018 Pre-Baselworld Novelty Classic Worldtimer Manufacture

Frederique Constant presents its first novelty of 2018, a redesigned Classic Worldtimer Manufacture featuring a new green color pattern.



Making time
Nowadays, Time could be considered just as precious as gold. For the busy businessman travelling around the world, keeping track of time locally and at home is primordial. With the new Classic Wordtimer Manufacture, you will be able to track time throughout twenty-four cities worldwide.

The world at your fingertips
A finely world map was etched on the dial and the twenty-four cities are placed on its outer rim just as previous editions. The date by hand is located at 6 o’clock and perfectly fits within the dial. Telling time on this newest timepiece will make keeping time a relaxing and simple experience.

Classic Worldtimer ManufactureSetting up your Worldtimer
The FC-718 caliber movement is an extraordinary piece of machinery not only because it is in-house designed, developed and produced but also because its Worldtimer functions as well as the date are all adjustable via the crown itself, with no additional push-buttons. Frederique Constant was the first to announce such an accomplishment and three Worldtimer editions later this innovation is one of the top selling arguments for this watch. To easily 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 displays two separate discs, one featuring a 24h day-night indicator and a second one with the twenty-four cities. As a Manufacture movement, the FC-718 caliber is decorated with Perlages and Côtes de Genève, and holds a 42-hour power reserve. The green timepiece is complete with a green alligator strap with white stitches.



With yet another revival of the Classic Worldtimer Manufacture, Frederique Constant continues to enhance its Manufacture collection. Always mindful of the “Accessible Luxury” philosophy it implemented the brand strikes again with an in-house movement for under 3500 CHF.

Reasons To Choose Custom Platinum Engagement Rings

When selecting an engagement ring for your beloved, it is crucial to determine the right kind of metal. This is particularly important when designing a custom engagement ring. Not only do you want to match your partner’s style and preference, but you also have to consider how her personal tastes will develop over time. For a lot of brides-to-be, the best choice of metal for their in engagement ring is actually platinum.



It is true that yellow gold is more common and traditional, and that rose gold finish continues to be quite popular these days. But then again, platinum engagement rings remains to be the top choice.

Still quite uncertain if platinum rings are right for you? Have a look at these reasons why you should opt for a custom platinum engagement ring:

Reasons To Choose Custom Platinum Engagement RingsI. It is one of the rarest metals on earth. As a matter of fact, platinum is even more exceptional than diamonds! It is actively quarried in the Ural Mountains of Colombia, Russia, Canada, and South Africa.

Reasons To Choose Custom Platinum Engagement RingsII. It is a “noble metal”, which means it’s very pure. Usually, around 95% of pure platinum is being used for the creation of fine jewellery. Moreover, platinum’s other remarkable qualities include being hypo-allergenic, which is favourable to those people who are allergic to silver or gold. Platinum is the perfect option for them.

Reasons To Choose Custom Platinum Engagement RingsIII. Since it is a naturally white metal, platinum has a specific silver colour that is evocative of highly polished silver or white gold. This particular colour makes platinum rings a versatile piece of metal that works well with any ring setting.

Reasons To Choose Custom Platinum Engagement RingsIV. Aside from being extremely rare, platinum is also highly durable. Unlike gold which can thin out after years of usage, platinum rings won’t easily lose volume from polishing or scratches. Because of platinum’s sturdiness, it is therefore ideal for jewellery use such as wedding bands and engagement rings, as these type of jewellery are being used almost every day.

V. As one of the purest metals, platinum is one of the least reactive metals available to most jewellers. Because of this, platinum rings are not readily susceptible to heat damage, and it will not rust. That is why platinum is a remarkable choice for daily wear.



While other metal trends come and go, platinum has been a jewellery staple since the 17th century. Its classic combination of durability, beauty, and scarcity made platinum the perfect choice for custom engagement rings and wedding bands.

Tips for Finding the Right Diamond Ring

Shopping for a diamond ring can especially be difficult, due to the fact that he options available to you are usually seemingly endless. However, the following tips should be able to guide you in the right direction:

Create a Mental Picture

The first step for you to take will be to know just how the ring will be. By this, I mean that of the ring and the diamond on top of it as well. There are various shapes and sizes of diamond rings, so feel free to choose the most appealing to you.

However, when it comes to the diamond itself it is understandable if you don’t know any diamond shape to begin with. If this case applies to you, feel free to pick round or princess cut these are the two most popular diamond shape choices.

Select a Carat Weight

You can now set a carat weight minimum for the diamond. This is highly important as the shape and carat size of ever diamond have to go together for instance, if you have the shape of a heart put on a diamond that measures just a single karat, you might not like what you eventually see.

When sourcing for the diamond of your choice, make sure to look for diamonds whose sizes fall just under some of the most popular carat weights (such as 1/2 ct. 3/4 ct., 1 ct., etc.). Due to the fact that these diamonds fall just under the popular weight tags, there is a higher probability that they will be sold at a slight discount (especially when compared to souq diamonds that have full weights). For example, a diamond that measures .90 carats will most probably cost less than a full1.00 carat diamond on a price-per-carat basis. It also helps that they are usually really hard to distinguish when looked at with normal eyes. As a matter of fact, a diamond with a smaller carat weight might even have the same diameter as a heavier diamond. This means that when viewed from above, they will most probably look the same.

Consider Your Budget As Well

You also have to consider the price of the ring in question.

Now, when it comes to price and diamond rings, you should know that there is no such thing as a cheap option. As a matter of fact, when you see a diamond ring that does cheaply (you should naturally know what you need to pay), you should know that the ring should have some form of deficiency or the other. However, you should also know that certain prices just are not worth it. You need to be careful and consider your available budget.

If you finally get a ring and the diamonds that the ring has are able to match your revised criteria, make sure that the price is close to your budget, then feel free to make your purchase.

Simply put, be careful and send wisely!
