10 Years Heart Beat Manufacture Celebration
This year, FREDERIQUE CONSTANT GENEVE celebrates its 10th anniversary of its in-house handcrafted movements. Since 2004, Frederique Constant is delivering timepieces with manufacture movements that are in-house developed, in-house manufactured and in-house assembled.
Following the success of the launch of the first Heart Beat Manufacture Calibre in 2004, Frederique Constant has presented every year an additional version to its Heart Beat Manufacture range. Some features remained constant, such as the signature aperture, perfectly centred at the 6 o’clock position. Each year, however, new design features have been added; the Heart Beat is constantly being revised, updated and technically advanced.
Heart Beat Manufacture timepieces feature the iconic Heart Beat dial aperture at 6 O’Clock. The fine regulation is placed at the dial side of the movement, a patented feature. Via the see-through case-back owners of Frederique Constant Heart Beat Manufacture watches can see the finely decorated movement.
Our independent spirit is of major importance for our prestige watchmaking vision. Since the first delivery of our iconic “Manufacture Heart Beat” movement, in 2004, we have developed 15 in-house handcrafted calibers, including our last 2014 creation: the Heart Beat Manufacture FC-942 Silicium, improved in terms of reliability, durability and pure technical excellence.
For the past two years, the R&D Department at Frederique Constant has been designing, developing and improving the 143 components contained in the all-new Heart Beat Manufacture. Now, our company is delighted to introduce its implementation of the newest, most technologically superior materials available in the world today.
To celebrate its anniversary, Frederique Constant Genève is proud to reveal two new Jubilee models within the Manufacture collection: the new Heart Beat Manufacture Silicium edited at 188 pieces in 18K Rose gold and at 18 pieces in Platinum, and the new Slimline Tourbillon Manufacture edited for the occasion with a dark green finishing at 10 pieces in 18K rose gold and 10 pieces in stainless steel.
