Classics Art Déco Round: A new ode to femininity
The culmination of a style Today, the round form is offered for the first time in the “Classics Art Déco” collection. Long awaited by collectors and fans of fine watchmaking, it is the result of a thinking process of over ten years about the design, femininity and subtleness. Very often seen as the starting point of watch collections, the perfect circle is, for Frederique Constant, a carefully considered style culmination. The new Classics Art Déco Round line has appropriated the classic look of its elders while asserting itself as a timepiece of the age. Resolutely modern, the watch is above all feminine, with a very delicate casing, of harmonious proportions and considerable finesse, showing off to perfection the elegance of the wrists that it will adorn. For this purpose, the casing has also been slightly curved to perfectly fit the contour of the wrist. A large range of finishes Careful consideration has been given to the finishes of this new range with minute attention to detail. The casing, for example, of a delicate diameter of only 30 mm, has been grooved on its middle, in accordance with the strict standards of luxury watchmaking. On the dial, the hours and minutes are shown by needles, hand refined and polished in the so- called “cored apple” style imposed by Breguet over 200 years ago. They glide over a dial guilloché from its centre outwards which diffuses the light towards the hours expressed in Roman numerals. Three of the five available models combine this guilloché sun with a mother-of-pearl outer dial whose soft reflections will animate a watch case in a steel or rose gold finish. Each dial comes with its own strap available in either steel, steel / plated rose gold or blue satin, with a soft and silky feel. These two models complete their hint of glamour with a discreet mounting of 9 diamonds set into each horn, in addition to the cabochon in the crown of each model. Designed for the everyday dress of modern, distinguished women, these models available from only 850 euros have a Frederique Constant quartz movement, offering 6 years of operation.
