TWO STARS UNITED
To this end, Frederique Constant has capitalised on the expertise of its Geneva-based manufacture.

Featuring at the forefront of the Highlife collection is a first and represents a major turning point for Frederique Constant.
SIMPLE, ACCURATE, INTUITIVE
Tech meets style. The highly contemporary design of the 41 mm steel case and dial with globe engraving is an ode to travel. The FC-718 manufacture calibre is designed for exactly that.The self-winding mechanical movement has a power reserve of 38 hours. It is visible through the case back, water-resistant to 50 metres. Admire the typical Genevan finishes that Frederique Constant is so fond of, perlage and circular Côtes de Genève among them.
ONE HEARTH, THREE STRAPS!
To celebrate the arrival of this new model, the Manufacture has created not one, not two, but three straps for it – a rarity in watchmaking nowadays. The integrated interchangeable strap from the Highlife collection has become one of its characteristic features and Frederique Constant wanted to emphasise its importance. The first option is a polished and satin-brushed three-link steel strap with folding buckle, the second is a blue strap with silky nubuck finish and the third is a blue rubber strap to complement the urban feel of the watch.

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.
