Frederique Constant releases two new Classics Carrée Ladies timepieces
Square-shaped timepieces have always held a special place in the history of watchmaking and remained the ideal classic dress watch until nowadays.
Chic and avant-garde, these two new Frederique Constant models are presented in two versions.
Firstly, bi-color stainless steel bearing a silver dial with a guilloché decoration and printed Roman numerals. The second piece comes in an elegant polished stainless-steel case decorated with 34 diamonds set on the sides and a white mother-of-pearl dial with printed roman numerals and a navy blue shiny Croco calf leather strap.
Both timepieces are powered by an FC-200 quartz caliber displaying hours and minutes.
Frederique Constant reinforces its position as a classic brand by reviving such an iconic shape all the while adding delicate features that make it a true Frederique Constant feminine watch.

About Frederique Constant
Frederique Constant is an established Swiss watch manufacturer based in Geneva, Switzerland, involved in all stages of watch production, from initial design, in-house development to final assembly and quality control. The brand produces up to 29 in-house calibers and is planning to expand its production capacity thanks to its new 3’000 square meter manufacture opening in June 2019.
The founders and couple Peter and Aletta Stas started the company back in 1988 with the vision of creating high-quality mechanical Swiss watches with a more accessible price-tag allowing more people to enjoy luxury.
Frederique Constant is a precursor of Swiss-made smartwatches when it introduced the first Horological Smartwatch in 2015, powered by MMT SwissConnect technology and entirely displayed with an analog dial, thereby creating an entirely new watch category in the Swiss watch industry.
In 2018 the brand has launched a brand-new smartwatch generation, the Hybrid Manufacture, combining mechanical horology with an ultra-tech smart module and integrated caliber analytics, breaking the rules of traditional watchmaking vision.
In 2016 Frederique Constant has been integrated into Japanese Citizen Group where they saw the opportunity of Swiss-Japanese partnership to develop and market accessible luxury watches for the 21st century and beyond.
