It was one of the most eagerly anticipated announcements of this pre-BaselWorld period. Frédérique Constant delivered a horological masterstroke last week. It wasn’t a new model, nor even a simple technological evolution, but a genuinely new market segment: the horological smartwatch.
Frederique Constant Retailer Portal was great! The training modules were very easy to follow and I love the different videos mixed in with the training – it got me very excited about the brand!! The videos also help me remember the history of the brand. I love the opening page and how easy and straightforward it is to navigate through. Simple is best and not too much to go through. I did not feel overwhelmed as a new retailer to the brand.
As a young watch collector I only collect good quality, this is why I just bought (today) a beautiful FC ladies double heart beat watch for my companion Jolien ! I’m very proud to help and support your charity, and as a “thank you” for the book, I acquired this magnificent watch from your collection ! This is my Frederique Constant watch number 8 …
Thank you so much to you and the Frédérique Constant team for the beautiful watch, we are very excited to be able to offer such an amazing prize.” Ashleigh Kuttner, Programme Director, Heart and Stroke Foundation South Africa.
“I’d like to thank Frédérique Constant for their generosity and support. The money raised from this event will help fund essential research which could create a better future for so many – from babies born with heart defects, to the millions of adults affected by heart disease.” Crystal Munroe, Special event Manager at the British Heart Foundation.
Je vous remercie encore une fois de votre gentillesse concernant l’ordre de réparation pour notre client Blade. Nous lui avons téléphoné et il s’est beaucoup réjouit. Il est très content maintenant. Il a dit que vous ne devez pas presser, il peut attendre un peu plus longtemps maintenant…
“Having the opportunity to utilize this watch was a great experience, it allowed us to have a campaign which targeted high networth individuals to our auction, it provided a level of sophistication that we could not have obtained without a real upfront cost. So I thank you and Frédérique Constant for not only supporting the cause be allowing us to gain access to individuals we would not normally relate to all for the good of the children of Barbados with CVD.” Gina Pitts, CEO of the Barbados Heart Foundation.
Je vous remercie beaucoup pour vos propositions qui m’ont pleinement satisfaites. J’ai reçu ma montre aujourd’hui est suis très content. J’aimerais également remercier tout le SAV qui a toujours répondu à mes attentes. Je souligne que cela fait plaisir de voir des sociétés qui s’occupe encore de la « satisfaction client », toujours plus rare à notre époque. Donc encore une fois merci à toute votre équipe et société.
Peter: I admire so much what you all are doing at FC. With your rare and admirable attitude toward luxury and pricing, you are both returning to and reinventing the great tradition of true luxury. Your perspective captures the ancient and noble approach that luxury is about intrinsic quality and the owner’s experience of use. The contemporary redefinition of luxury in terms of exclusivity through inaccessibly high pricing is just a sad departure from the essence of what luxury is really all about. Your business philosophy is so refreshing. It’s also a return to purity, in my view. I own several watches from makers like Patek, Breguet, and JLC. I always make selections based on aesthetics and functionality and never on the exclusivity criterion. People who chase the highest price models just to set themselves apart are looking in the wrong places for their own self esteem. True self worth is manifested by the pursuit of quality that finds issues of inaccessibility to be utterly irrelevant. I look forward to my first opportunity to wear and enjoy a Frederique Constant. As an author and public philosopher, I appreciate immensely what you are doing, as I view it from afar. Good Wishes, Tom Morris Read More…
Very true. I acquired a Slim Line watch recently and it does look and feel much more than what I paid for it. Needless to say that I am very happy with the watch, and have become an instant fan of the Frederique Constant brand, largely because of its philosophy and how each of its products reflect that philosophy. Oh, and Peter, what you write and how you write your blogs is reflective of your passion, keep it up!
First of all “thanks a lot” for such a great after sales service. They gave me the best possible solution to my problem and I’ve been constantly updated about my watch situation at their workshop. I can affirm that any other high quality brand (and I’ve taken to service Panerai and Rolex watches) wouldn’t give me a better after sales service than F.C.
Reading this thread and the incredible after sales service offered to the OP from FC, makes me very excited to say that I will be picking up my first ever FC-710 from an AD, this coming Saturday!
Hi Sebastien, I have recived my watch back today, I don’t know what to say except Thank You so much the braclet is beautiful and very unexpected. I also love the book and it will take pride of place in our new extension on the coffee table. Again Thank You for all your help and the Watch looks brand new. Really appricate what you and your team at Frederique Constant have done true customer service
“It is an honour and a privilege to partner with Frédérique Constant and their ambassador Ines Sastre on the wonderful “Hearts of Children” campaign. Through the support of Frédérique Constant we have been able to support lifesaving children’s heart health programmes across the globe, from rheumatic heart disease prevention and awareness programmes in Pakistan to financing a camp for children with heart conditions in Barbados, from the “Dress Red” campaign in South Africa to research support in Switzerland in the field of congenital heart disease for children. Thanks to the leadership of the Stas family and the visibility of Ms. Sastre, we are able to significantly raise awareness and grow programmes focusing on children’s heart health across the globe.”
The quality of your brand and especially how very professionally and graciously you handled my request made me a very strong fan of your wonderful brand. About a week ago I purchased another FC watch FC-306mc4s36 and loving it.
