Frederique Constant Classics Manufacture Worldtimer Watch

Frederique Constant Classics Manufacture Worldtimer Watch

The companion to long-distance travellers, the Classics Manufacture Worldtimer is driven by one of the most complex movements ever made by Frederique Constant: the FC-718 calibre. Yet the true genius of this watch is its simplicity of use, with all the functions commanded by the crown. The wearer can read, at a glance, time in 24 major world cities simultaneously around the dial. And so as never to lose track with home as he criss-crosses the globe, the 24-hour disc includes a day/night indicator. The date, meanwhile, can be read from the elegant counter that is swept by a hand at 6 o'clock.
