Luxury watchmaker Frederique Constant is celebrating 35 years of Swiss watchmaking excellence in 2023 with an exciting new release - the Classic Power Reserve Big Date Manufacture at Geneva Watch Days 2023. Housed in a refined 40mm case, this timepiece debuts Maison's 31st in-house manufactured movement, bringing useful complications and mechanical ingenuity together in a vintage-inspired design.

Available in four variations, the 40mm watch features a well-balanced dial with a 50-hour power reserve indicator at 9 o'clock, oversized big date windows between 2 and 3 o'clock, and a poetic moonphase display at 6 o'clock. The time and calendar functions are adjustable via the crown, with no pushers required.

To mark the milestone, Frederique Constant is releasing two limited edition models. Only 35 pieces will be made of the platinum case version with a meteorite dial. A more accessible limited edition of 350 pieces features an 18K rose gold case and grey anthracite dial.

The platinum model comes on a navy blue alligator strap complementing the dial, while the rose gold version has a brown strap. Both limited editions have an exhibition caseback providing a view of the new Manufacture's calibre.

Alongside the special editions, two additional variations with stainless steel cases and blue dials on blue alligator straps will join Frederique Constant's core collection. One has a silvery brushed dial, the other sunburst blue.

As it embarks on its fourth decade creating authentic Swiss watches, Frederique Constant reaffirms its place as a rising star in the watchmaking universe.
