Frédérique Constant Lady Chronograph Quartz Watch

Frédérique Constant Lady Chronograph Quartz Watch
Frédérique Constant presents its all-new Classics Chronograph Quartz Collection. Each model in the new range is a delightful blend of clean, classic lines that call to mind the wonderful watches of the 1940s and 50s, coupled with a fresh and stylish new face that instantly attracts the eye and enchants the senses.

Ladies in particular will love the three-part, highly polished case, which measures 34mm in diameter—large and attractive enough to be noticed without being a cumbersome nuisance on a feminine wrist. Each watch in the range is powered by the FC-291 quartz caliber, with four jewels and a battery that will keep your Classic Chronograph running for four-and-a-half years before replacement.

The delightfully beautiful dials are protected by a convex sapphire crystal, and each watch in the range is water resistant to 30 metres. All models feature four separate displays, including uniquely designed hour and minute hands, a date window at the 3 o’clock position, an individual seconds dial at the six o’clock position, and a fully functional chronograph at the 12 o’clock position.

Delightful design choices abound...decisions, decisions, decisions:

Two watches in the new Classics Chronograph Collection come with cases finished in yellow-gold plated steel, while two come in polished stainless steel. The FC-291A2R5 and the FC-291A2R6 feature a striking, modern enamel dial and hand-applied Arabic numerals. The strap on the gold model is made of shiny dark brown, crocodile leather, while on the stainless steel model, the shiny black crocodile leather strap offers a striking contrast to the silver-coloured case.

The remaining two Classic Chronograph Quartz watches feature truly exquisite silver dials, with an intricate Guilloché design, while the indexes are jet black, hand-applied Roman numerals. The FC-291MC2R5 is the yellow gold-plated version, again with the rich dark brown crocodile leather strap, while the FC-291MC2R6 is the stainless steel / black crocodile leather strap version. Once again, Frédérique Constant has proven that “classic” doesn’t have to mean “old,” and that youth, passion and innovation can proudly integrate alongside maturity, age and beauty.
