About Frederique Constant
Since its creation in 1988 by Peter and Aletta Stas, under the premise of the company’s slogan “Live your Passion”, Frédérique Constant has come a long way. Based in Plan-les-Ouates- Geneva, still independent and family-owned, the company has gradually become an important player within the Swiss watchmaking industry. Avid to always offer the best quality and at the same time remain accessible, Frédérique Constant has developed all its departments to be able to control the various stages of the production of its watches, from initial conception to the final quality control and including assembly. In 2004, Frédérique Constant entered the elite circle of Swiss watch brands that develop and produce their own in-house movements. Consequently, Frédérique Constant became a “Manufacture”.
