Classics Heart Beat Automatic - Classicism in its pure form
In 2022, Frederique Constant is returning to the aesthetic origins of its flagship line, the “Classics Automatic”, with two Heart Beat versions.
If there is an often-said watchmaking phrase, it is that the dial is the face of the watch. Although the technological race now results in increasing complications, it is sometimes forgotten that the identity of a watch is not solely expressed by how many rubies it has or the torque of its barrel spring, but also, and quite simply, by its dial. It is what conveys a watchmaker’s identity values and that is immediately recognizable.
Original aesthetic codes
It is with this in mind that Frederique Constant is returning to the sources of classicism which, over the centuries, has defined timeless aesthetic ideals. Among them: a guilloché dial, a discreet date window and cored apple hands. And delicate Roman numeral indexes.
In the heart of the movement
Featuring a silver or khaki “Heart Beat” dial. This design invented by Frederique Constant uniquely highlights the beating heart of the watch, hence its name.
The first Frederique Constant Heart Beat watch was created in 1994. Since then, its original design has often been copied and adapted, but it is never as pure and authentic as in a genuine Frederique Constant watch. This is what these two Classics Heart Beat Automatic watches offer: a homage to the founding spirit of the watchmaker and the rediscovery of a design which takes its rightful place among the classics of fine Geneva watchmaking.
These two styles, beating to the rhythm of the FC-310 caliber with automatic winding, have a 30-hour power reserve.
