Frederique Constant - Highlife Heart Beat


2 Year Limited Warranty

The Highlife Heart Beat Automatic line revisits the Maison’s iconic design revealing the inner workings of the movement, and brings it into the 21stcentury with an understated and minimalist design, as modern and unique as ever.


Located at the pole of the globe decoration on the dial, the famous aperture allows those who truly appreciate mechanical timepieces to watch the rotation of the balance wheel in their watch, its beating heart.


You can look straight into the inner workings of the automatic Heart Beat FC-310 caliber with power reserve of 38 hours and admire it from both front and back through the sapphire crystal. Hours, minutes, and seconds are the functions offered by the FC-310.


The Highlife Gents models have a 41 mm case, available in various materials. The lack of horns allows for greater flexibility and helps the watch sit naturally on the wrist. The integrated design is infinitely more complicated to conceive than any strap with horns. The process requires perfect continuity between the lines of the case and the links, a smooth, regular but gradual transition to the clasp and natural fluidity that should be almost imperceptible.

What is an Automatic Watch?

An automatic watch harnesses the movement of the wearer's arm to power its mechanism. As the arm moves, a rotor inside the watch rotates, winding the mainspring. This stored energy is then released, driving the gears that keep the watch's hands moving and accurate timekeeping.
