Frederique Constant: Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture Blue-Grey18 January 2022
Born in 1999, the Highlife collection has marked the history of Frederique Constant. It embodies the values that have contributed to the company’s success: a highly watchmaking design that is faithful to the art of fine Swiss watchmaking, a high degree of finishing and with an affordable price. The highlight of this collection, the Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture which for the first time shows a new blue-gray dial.
This new deep blue-grey dial guarantees perfect legibility thanks to the contrast of the white typography and the mirror-polished and luminescent hour-markers and hands. The day can be read at 9 o’clock, the months and leap years at 12 o’clock and the date at 3 o’clock. At 6 o’clock, a moon phase completes the set. At the centre of this dial: the guilloché motif of the Earth, the aesthetic signature of the Highlife collection.
Its 41 mm steel case is designed with an integrated three-link bracelet, alternating polished and satin-finished surfaces. A special feature of the Highlife collection is that it is interchangeable, and can be alternated with a navy blue rubber extra strap – delivered with the watch – without the need for any tools.
Visible through the open caseback, inside the new Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture Blue-Gray we find the in-house self-winding caliber FC-775 with 38 hours of power reserve. Price? Unbeatable as always, just € 8,595.
