Measure. Analyse. Track.
Measure the accuracy of your mechanical watches. In the past, only a watchmaker could measure the accuracy of a mechanical watch. With Frederique Constant Analytics, it is now possible to measure the accuracy of your timepiece by yourself efficiently and at low cost. Frederique Constant developed an easy to use device and app to measure the state of your watch. In line with our Accessible Luxury philosophy, we offer Analytics for a very attractive price.

The hallmark of a great timepiece is accuracy. A measure of accuracy is a measure of value. Each mechanical timepiece has a tiny Balance Wheel that acts as a pendulum. Every oscillation back and forth should take exactly one second. But if the Balance Wheel mechanism is off by a just matter of a few degrees, the watch timekeeping accuracy of the watch will suffer.
Place the ingenious Analytics Clip on your watch and launch the Analytics App, available for iOS and Android. Within seconds, Frederique Constant Analytics measures the accuracy of your mechanical watch. It measures the precision of mechanical watches, with an accuracy of at least ±0.2s/day.
An oscilloscope shows the audio waveform in real time. The result is plotted in a chart, which can be saved for later reference.
Also, Analytics can record and save a long-time measurement, e.g. for 12 hours, to analyze the long-time performance of your watch.
Frederique Constant Analytics supports a wide range of frequencies, covering almost all mechanical watches available on the market:
In case you don’t know your watch’s frequency, you may use frequency auto detect.
Frederique Constant Analytics connects to the SwissConnect Cloud. When you measure one of your watches, data is saved to your cloud account. You can track accuracy measurements over time on the Frederique Constant Dashboard. We encourage you to monitor your watch collection and record all measurements. This will enable you to follow your timepieces over the years and detect when each should be serviced.
Frederique Constant offers a growing Knowledge Base on mechanical watch accuracy, maintenance and service. There are various reasons that the accuracy of a mechanical watch changes over time. Particularly the balance spring can change in strength from the micro-stresses to the metal they are made of. Moreover, watch escapements are lubricated with oils — long lasting oils, but oils nonetheless — and as those oils age, the rate of a mechanical watch changes as well.
Backup & Restore
Once you have registered your SwissConnect Private Cloud Account, the Analytics app will backup your measurements to the cloud and keep data available anywhere. You can easily restore data if you switch to a new smartphone.
