New Classics Carree Automatic Watches from Frederique Constant
Luxury watch brand Frederique Constant introduces three new variations of the Classics Carree Automatic watch collection. Going back to its original era and the roaring twenties, the new watches emerge with a stylistic audacity. Yes, the resulting imprint is still perceptible.
The new Classics Carree Automatic luxury watch collection is very refined. The stunning rose gold-plated or steel timepieces rely on a minimalist style. They include baton indexes, dauphine hands and date. In addition, a dial with a subtle guilloché pattern gives the Classics Carrée Automatic a rare elegance for aesthete collectors.
Classics Carree Automatic
The new Classics Carree Automatic watches from Frederique Constant are available in three versions. Each is powered by the FC-303 caliber offering 38 hours of power reserve. The caliber is clearly visible through the sapphire caseback. Continuing, the most sober and classic come with a steel case, silver dial and black leather strap. The most modern comes in the same case with a blue dial on a matching bracelet in the same tone. It’s topstitched in blue. The most chic and precious prefers a pink gold-plated case with shared indexes and hands, on a brown strap.
First launched in 2003, the Classics Carree Automatic is evolving again and significantly. First, a major change is the Heart Beat opening closes. Plus, the housing is the well-kept secret of the Swiss Made mechanism of the timepiece. Hence, this is how the face of a new, much more streamlined dial emerges. For example, the large Roman numerals give way to applied indexes, doubled at noon. The style is timeless and much closer to the aesthetic canons of the 20s.
The date window at 6 o’clock reproduces the rectangular line of the case. Therefore, it is dressed in a frame of the same finish as the latter, also shared by the indexes.
You will find in the center of the dial, the most refined finishes. First, a rectangle with the exact proportions of the 30.4 x 33.3 mm case. It’s closed by a “railway” type timer, typical of the 1920s and the Art Deco movement that ran through them. Next, a very fine grooving dresses it. As a result, it offers a sole gaze of its owner.
This subtlety makes it possible to offer a better contrast to the set of three hands. Of course, the hours and minutes are shaped in the Dauphine style. Thus, a geometry is also characteristic of the past century. This simple, refined shape allows the time to be read perfectly in all circumstances. This is due to two facets. Each is oriented at two divergent angles. Therefore, at least one of the two always captures the light. Brillant design!
