In today’s ever changing world of fashion and technology, very little remains constant. The latter does not necessarily hold true when it comes it Swiss-made watches, most notably Frederique Constant Swiss-made timepieces.
Although the styles, sizes and shapes of Swiss-made wristwatches do change from year to year, the time-honored excellence and precision craftsmanship have remained the same for generations in time. This especially is consistent with prestigious Swiss watchmaker Frederique Constant.
The brand was founded in Geneva, Switzerland during 1988 by Dutch entrepreneurs Peter Stas and Aletta Bax, who sought out to create hand-assembled and affordable timepieces of the highest quality, which would be controlled and checked at their Geneva facilities.
Little has changed at Frederique Constant in regards to their precision, bespoke timepieces since the brand was founded 28 years ago. Frederique Constant’s core values remain the same and the brand is one of the very few family owned Swiss watchmakers in the world today.
Several aspects have changed: Frederique Constant is now one of the largest Swiss watch manufacturers of men’s and women’s watches with a larger watch plant in Plan-Les-Ouates, Switzerland and global distribution to over 100 countries.
Frederique Constant is most noted for its first timepiece caliber, the award-winning Heart Beat, which was introduced in 2001 and is still in production today. The World Timer, another innovative timepiece from Frederique Constant, automatically synchronizes the time for 24 international cities by placing the desired location at the 12 o’clock hour on the dial.
You’ll find an impressive array of Frederique Constant watches at TheWatchery.com, including models from the Maxime, Double Heartbeat, Art Deco, Clear Vision, Vintage Rally and Delight collections.
