Tracking time day and night with Frederique Constant 24-hour function indicated on its elegantly crafted dial
Geneva, December 7, 2018 – Initially conceived for explorers, either underwater or in space, the 24-hour function in the watch gave them an idea whether it was AM or PM. Today, Frederique Constant launches in its Classics collection a new contemporary and everyday watch with 24-hour caliber adding a touch of precision and a universal reference point.
Faithful to Swiss watchmaking traditions, the Classics line is fitted with FC-332 automatic movement and a 38-hour power reserve that have proved to be robust and reliable. The dark grey or silver colored dial is finely enhanced with Clou de Paris decoration and features hours, minutes and seconds and has the 24-hour day displayed in the center of the watch, with the hour hand making one complete revolution, 360°, in a day unambiguously representating a whole day at a time. Offered in polished stainless steel, the Classics Automatic 24H watch comes in one 43 mm size.
While the traditional wristwatch primarily revolves around the easily mastered 12-hour clock, this interesting Frederique Constant timepiece is available for the aficionado who wants to keep time in an alternative way with this twenty-four-hour function.
