Frederique Constant launches Tourbillon for 30th anniversary
October 10, 2018: Swiss luxury watch brand, Frederique Constant, has launched a Limited Edition Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon, celebrating the brand’s 30th anniversary.
The primary function of the timepiece is to counterbalance the errors due to the Earth's gravity on a movement in a vertical position. The titular mechanism of the timepiece is the new automatic FC-975 in-house movement - with a silicium escapement wheel and anchor, a smart weight balance wheel, and a Tourbillon cage. The watch is light, durable, antimagnetic and extremely resistant to temperature changes, achieveing a remarkable progress in precision.
Composed of 80 components, the Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon also displays the day, date and month and requires even less adjustment than an annual calendar, automatically adjusting itself to a leap year. The watch comes with a 4 day power reserve.
The timepieces are presented in a substantial 42mm diameter 3 part case, available either in polished stainless steel, in 18k rose gold plated stainless steel or in 18k rose gold with a see-through case back. The Swiss-made calibers include 33 jewels and the movements are protected by a 5 ATM case for the stainless steel versions and a 3 ATM case for the 18k gold cases. Completely manufactured in house, the limited 30 pieces edition reflects on the 30 years of the manufacture's history.
