Frédérique Constant has been the official watch sponsor of the 2012 Riva Days Event, organized by the Riva Historical Society based in Italy. From August 30th to September 3rd 2012 on the Iseo lake near Sarnico (Italy),the Riva Historical Society in collaboration with the Riva Society Italia, welcomed more than one hundred beautiful Riva boats to this manifestation.
At the same time, Frédérique Constant together with the Riva Historical Society celebrated many anniversaries: the 90th anniversary of Mr Carlo Riva member of the founding family of the Riva’s Brand, the 170th anniversary of the Riva Yard creation, and the 5’th anniversary of the Aquarama Riva boat.
This is in this magnificent atmosphere that guests have discovered the Frédérique Constant Runabout Collection including the “Venice Limited edition” launched this year.
Since 2009, Swiss watch Manufacturer Frédérique Constant celebrates the legendary Runabout yachts of the roaring 20s by offering an attractive series of limited edition timepieces named “Runabout”.
The Geneva-based brand this year introduces every year a new version. Magnificent through its stunning design, these models are available in a limited quantity of 1’888 pieces per material. Featuring a case diameter of 43mm and presented in stainless steel or rose gold plated, the new Runabout watches offer finely decorated silvered dials. With a delicate guilloche decoration at the centre, hand-applied Arabic indexes, and perfectly positioned Day-date and Moonphase indicators, these watches exude an uncluttered elegance, just like the Runabout yachts on which they are inspired. Through the sapphire case-back, the decorated automatic movement can be admired. Traditionally, each Runabout timepiece comes with its own luxurious, handmade wooden case that echoes the passionate craftsmanship of the yachts.
Alongside the watch, a miniature reproduction of a classic Runabout boat can be found inside the unique gift box.
