The world at your fingertips
A finely world map was etched on the dial and the twenty-four cities are placed on its outer rim just as previous editions. The date by hand is located at 6 o’clock and perfectly fits within the dial. Telling time on this newest timepiece will make keeping time a relaxing and simple experience.
Setting up your Worldtimer
The FC-718 caliber movement is an extraordinary piece of machinery not only because it is in-house designed, developed and produced but also because its Worldtimer functions as well as the date are all adjustable via the crown itself, with no additional push-buttons. Frederique Constant was the first to announce such an accomplishment and three Worldtimer editions later this innovation is one of the top selling arguments for this watch. To easily set the functions you must choose between three settings; the first lets you wind the watch by turning the crown upwards; the second allows the user to set the date and city by turning the crown upwards and downwards, respectively; and the third position allows the user to set the time by turning the crown downwards. This timepiece displays two separate discs, one featuring a 24h day-night indicator and a second one with the twenty-four cities. As a Manufacture movement, the FC-718 caliber is decorated with Perlages and Côtes de Genève, and holds a 42-hour power reserve. The green timepiece is complete with a green alligator strap with white stitches.
With yet another revival of the Classic Worldtimer Manufacture, Frederique Constant continues to enhance its Manufacture collection. Always mindful of the “Accessible Luxury” philosophy it implemented the brand strikes again with an in-house movement for under 3500 CHF.
