Frederique Constant’s very first appearance at the 2023 Watches and Wonders exhibition coincides with a significant anniversary for the brand, which turns thirty-five this year. To mark the occasion, the firm is unveiling an all-new version of a piece that embodies its expertise and philosophy: the Classics Tourbillon Manufacture.
The tourbillon, developed entirely in-house and hand-assembled in its workshops, comes here in its finest watchmaking livery: three hands housed in a 39-millimetre 18K rose gold case, available in a limited edition of just 150 watches.
Founded in 1988, Frederique Constant is celebrating its thirty-fifth anniversary in 2023. While a large number of festive events will be held over the course of the year, the Manufacture was keen to start by focusing on a piece that epitomises its journey: its Manufacture tourbillon. First unveiled 15 years ago in 2008, the FC-980 movement immediately became one of the firm’s showcase developments, and has been used to power this brand-new Classics Tourbillon Manufacture.
The anniversary also coincides with the firm’s very first time at Watches and Wonders, so in a noteworthy symbolic gesture, the Classics Tourbillon Manufacture will be unveiled live from the world’s foremost watchmaking exhibition, held in Frederique Constant’s home territory: Geneva.
