Frederique Constant Revisits its Most Iconic Collection Classics Quartz GMT

One big family under one name: Classics. Through this unique family name, Frederique Constant has not only breathed new life into classic watchmaking but given concrete expression to its founding mission: to make luxury timepieces accessible to as many people as possible. Today, this iconic collection is reaffirming its timeless charm with a more modern, stronger, more contemporary design.

Classics Quartz GMT: long-distance traveller

In redesigning its “Classics Quartz GMT” range, Frederique Constant has prioritised the needs of frequent travellers in creating functional, easy to read timepieces attuned to the times and to crossing continents.

The three new models make perfect companion pieces for hubs and major airports. All share a 40 mm steel case, a sunray-brushed dial and a quartz movement powering three hands for the hours, minutes and central second-time zone, hovering over a date window at 3 o’clock. The luminescent hour hands are complemented by a central GMT pointer finished with a red arrow, showing the second time zone at a glance, anywhere in the world and without the risk of day/night confusion, being calibrated immediately over 24 hours.

In the same vein, any adjustments to the settings can be made using the single crown. When the hands are at midnight, the second time zone can be adjusted by turning the crown in one direction. Turning it the other way adjusts the date. Simple and intuitive!

The first model, with a grey dial and a brown nubuck-finish calfskin strap, is followed by a very stylish second model featuring a blue dial and a blue strap, complemented by the sportier third variation, complete with a black dial on a steel bracelet.
