Frederique Constant is once again making waves with the launch of two new Automatic Runabouts, an Italian nautical inspiration, pays tribute to the 1920’s Riva boats.
Since 2009, Frederique Constant has collaborated with the Riva Historical Society: a Milan-based association founded in 1988, dedicated to the preservation and restoration of classic Riva boats. To celebrate this partnership, each year Frederique Constant creates a limited-edition Runabout timepiece inspired by the timeless 1920s Riva boats. The handcrafted wooden powerboats take you on an adventure of the Italian dolce vita. Both brands share the common values of precise engineering and timeless elegant designs.
The Runabout range features two new automatic models: a 42 mm stainless steel and a rose gold plated case. The cases undergo a polishing treatment, reminiscent to the lustrous appearance of the Riva boats.
An elegant detail is the see-through sapphire case back, revealing the automatic mechanism. Distinguished by the engraving of the Riva Historical Society flag. To complete the look of these watches, it bears a navy leather strap with white stitching.
