LIVE YOUR PASSION
Born from the passion for refined watches, Frederique Constant offers not only, year after year, exceptional timepieces of high quality, but also makes the realm of the horological industry more accessible to watch lovers and connoisseurs alike by inviting you to their Manufacture based in Geneva.
DESIGN & CONCEPTION
Frederique Constant uses cutting-edge computer software, principally computer aided design software, to assist in the watch design and development processes. The Designer will then build the model, component by component, layer by layer, which in turn will go on to define the manufacturing process for this watch itself. We are not talking here only about the most complicated movements as our Tourbillon Manufacture, but also about all the components necessary to produce our manufacture movements: the diameter of a hole on the plate, the weight of a rotor, the finishing of a bridge …. are only some examples. We do all this to make the new Frederique Constant models unique and exceptional for your great pleasure !
At Frederique Constant, when the watch passes to the “Prototype” department it enters a delicate and decisive phase, necessary before we launch the production of the new model. Assisted by an ultra sophisticated CNC machine, our micro-mechanical engineers study each process plan created by our Designer and build, step-by-step, each component destined to be integrated into our new manufacture calibre.
Quiet, analytical and precise are the qualities needed for our engineers, who sometimes need to adjust the settings many times before thecomponent is completely perfect.
Every visible component of each watch we produce is beautifully decorated. Every time the owner of a Frederique Constant watch looks at their timepiece, they are bound to feel joy. Much of the intricate decorative work is done by hand, including detailed engravings, the application of the circular Côtes de Genève pattern, perlage and rhodiage, to name only a few.
