SEPTEMBER 12TH, 2010
In the Gobi Desert the setting sun drops rapidly towards the far horizon, suddenly throwing long shadows across our camp site. It is 6.30 on Sunday evening, and just 30 cars have managed to find the patch of green some 20 kilometres away from Sainshand. We are pitching our tents yards away from the Mongol branch-line of the Trans-Siberia Express.
Check out this edition of iW Magazine of June 2010, with a 7-page cover article about Frédérique Constant. It deals with the Junior & Maxime Manufacture Lady ranges, the Chopin Limited Edition and the Runabout Power Reserve, but also highlights the new Healey Chrono Automatic. Read more…

Frederique Constant is proud to announce its partnership with one of the top department stores in the USA: Bloomingdale’s, founded in 1860.
Just in time for Christmas 2009, Frederique Constant timepieces will become available in the Fine Jewelry & Watch department of selected Bloomingdale’s stores in New York City (59th Street), Florida (Aventura) and California (San Francisco Centre & South Coast Plaza).
Frederique Constant is excited to announce that the Healey Challenge Canada 2009 in Kingston, Ontario, also known as The Year of the Healey-Loyalist was a huge success for both Frederique Constant as well as for the more than 550 people that were in attendance. Over 230 Healey cars could be admired during numerous activities, and also a number of Healey watches was on display. The crowd at the display booth was evidence that the Healey watches are highly desired, specifically the models created for this year’s event featuring the event logo on the back of the watch.
While it is obvious Healey owners are passionate about their cars, they also love their Frederique Constant Healey watches. One fan in particular purchased the first edition Healey watch back in 2004, and has purchased all since then, including this year’s models!
As the Official Timing Partner & Premier Sponsor of the event, Frederique Constant was honored to offer Limited Edition Healey watches to “Best of Show” and to the only finisher of an equippe of more than 20 cars, to complete the descerning “Time, Speed, Distance Rally”.
It was again exciting to be part of such an event and to meet so many interesting & passionate people, that do not only love cars, but also watches!
We are looking forward to next year’s Healey Event… See you all then!

Please find herewith a selection of notes on Frederique Constant and its product, randomly found on the internet.
What really stands this watch [Maxime Manufacture Automatic] out of the crowd, is its movement. You see, most brands in this price range (the watch will retail below €2000, by the way) are usually powered by standard ETA movements with standard complication modules supplied by third-party manufacturers like, say, Dubois-Depraz. The FC MMA is powered by the company’s own FC-700 in-house movement and, although its accuracy and reliability still have to pass the test of time, this makes it THE most exclusive affordable watch on the market.
