Established in 1988, Frederique Constant was founded by Aletta Bax and Peter Stas with the mission of creating luxury time pieces at accessible prices for everyone to enjoy. Based in Geneva, the heart of the watchmaking industry in Switzerland, the brand launched their first collection of watches in 1992. Since then, Frederique Constant has gone from strength to strength with their timeless designs and use of cutting edge technology in the assembly process. Each Frederique Constant timepiece is hand-assembled and then assessed over a long period of time by both specialized machines and their quality control team to ensure each watch meets the high standards set, from their Horological Smart Watches right through to their in-house manufactured movements. As a brand that takes immense pride in the designs of their watches, every visible part of a Frederique Constant has been beautifully decorated with eye catching and intricate details.
In addition to being an accessible luxury brand, Frederique Constant has always strived to be at the forefront of the ever-evolving watch industry. This has enabled Frederique Constant to be the first brand to create a timepiece with an open heart. The small window that displays part of the movement within a mechanical watch, has since become popular worldwide amongst both consumers and other brands and remains an integral part of the Frederique Constant name with their collection of Heartbeat watches. More recently Frederique Constant is the first ever watch brand to introduce a Hybrid Manufacture watch, expertly combining the tradition of a Swiss mechanical movement with smartwatch functionality.
