~ Watchmaking elegance for 21st-century women ~

Following the launch of the first Highlife models unveiled last September, Frederique Constant is adding a new collection exclusively for women, simply named “Highlife Ladies Automatic”. The timepieces in this collection combines over 30 years of watchmaking expertise and the desire to come up with an authentic creation for 21st-century women. It also features the Highlife’s hallmark strap, which is built into the case and can be changed at will – the secret to making watches truly timeless and ensuring they always strike the right note.

 Over 20 years ago now, back in 1999, Frederique Constant introduced the very first Highlife watches. In 2020, the Maison revived the iconic design, reintroducing the collection with resolutely modern curves rooted in the 21st century. Owing to its popularity, the latter inspired the eponymous collection for women, unveiled this year for watchmaking enthusiasts, the sophisticated and fashion-forward modern women of today and tomorrow.


 The latest Highlife Ladies Automatic Heart Beat models capture the legacy of the Manufacture and carry it toward new creative horizons. At 12 o’clock, the pieces proudly display the window on their mechanical heart, made famous by Frederique Constant. Known as the “Heart Beat”, it lets you see the beating heart of the watch, its mechanical movement. It also reveals some essential components of Swiss Made precision.

Alongside this emblematic feature of the Maison, you’ll find the famous engraved globe. Symbolising the Earth, unity and balance, it is also the icon of a new generation that shares the same ideal for sustainable and sensible living – an ethic in perfect harmony with that of Frederique Constant, which champions quality, reliable watches that are both transferable and accessible to as many people as possible.

Two Highlife Ladies Automatic Heart Beat models have been specially created for modern women who want to embrace grace and elegance at all times. They come in an all-steel option, or in rose gold plated steel, complete with rose gold-plated bezel and crown. For the detail-oriented, each version comes with an additional interchangeable rubber strap – sky blue in the case of the steel version and pink for the two-tone version. The Highlife Ladies Automatic Heart Beat can be made to look classic or stylish, cheeky or elegant to suit the time, mood or season!
