Frederique Constant Design and Conception

QUINTESSENTIAL FREDERIQUE CONSTANT DESIGN

The Frederique Constant Flyback Chronograph Manufacture features the iconic traits that make a Frederique Constant so recognizable. Three counters are placed at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock displaying the 30-minute counter, date by hand, and small seconds respectively. As part of the already recognizable characteristics of a Manufacture movement, the new FC-760 is decorated with Perlage and Côtes de Genève which are visible by through the transparent back case.

PATENTED STAR WHEEL

An unmistakable characteristic of high-quality chronographs is a column wheel rotating on bearings to control the three “start, stop and reset” functions. In conventional mechanisms, this component has several columns. In contrast, the caliber FC-760 has no standard-type column wheel, but a star-shaped one. Together with the operating lever, which is controlled by the start/stop push-piece, this component is responsible for the exceptionally smooth operation of the mechanism.

FLYBACK CHRONOGRAPH FUNCTION

This FC-760 complication is inspired by 1930’s Flyback Chronographs and a desire to go beyond a regular chronograph construction. Whereas the regular chronograph function is used as a stopwatch to measure time during a specific elapsed interval, with a Flyback, a user is able to operate the chronograph without resetting it to zero every time. With the flyback, the chronograph’s hand can be stopped, reset to zero, and restarted with one push of a button. This function is essential for timing an elapsed interval of events during races.

SMART DEVELOPMENT

Frederique Constant’s team of watch experts have relentlessly worked to take Frederique Constant innovative ambition to groundbreaking new heights with the launch of one of the most difficult watchmaking complications; due in part by the specific expertise needed to create it as well as the required skilled watchmakers to assemble it. After a long process involving drawing, designing, prototyping, and ultimately creating the timepiece, they defied all odds struggling with the necessary geometry, forces, and meticulous adjustments to create the new reliable in-house FC-760 movement.

THE DIRECT “IN-LINE” FLYBACK

Pressing the push-piece just once starts the timer again from zero. In this case, the push-piece at 4 o’clock and its associated mechanism cause three tasks to be performed very quickly one after the other: first, the clutch is disengaged; secondly, the chronograph is reset to zero by means of the single-piece hammer, whose sloping surfaces turn the two zero reset hearts so that the hands position themselves vertically again; and thirdly, the clutch engages once more as soon as the push-piece is released. The highly complex sequence of movements involved in this case proceeds directly from the push-piece to the clutch lever. This instant type of flyback is another instance of the unique details of construction of the new caliber FC-760. And last, but not least noteworthy, are the carefully designed shape and the mode of attachment, not by a force-fit method, of the chronograph module to the basic watch movement. It achieves a reliable and, above all, energy-saving connection between the two mechanisms, both produced in-house.
