New Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch Collection

The Horological Smartwatch

Once again, Frederique Constant challenges the status quo, blending modernity with classicism, innovation with tradition and technology with craftsmanship. Originally launched in 2015, the Horological Smartwatch was born after three years of extensive research and development with Frederique Constant being the first in the Swiss watch industry to introduce a Horological Smartwatch. The enthusiasm over this innovative timepiece has materialized over the past year through incredible worldwide demand. Working with Manufacture Modules Technologies Sarl. (MMT), a Swiss company established in Geneva in 2015 for the development and commercialization of Horological Smartwatch modules, firmware, apps and cloud, both conceive innovative and creative ways to bring the technological traits of the Smartwatch into the traditional, classic universe of haute horlogerie.

For the first time, Frederique Constant introduces five new Ladies models as well as presenting five completely redesigned men’s versions. For this latest novelty, the recognizable sub-dial which is used to display the date and the “activity tracking” percentage opens up and the focus shifts to the 2, 4, 8, and 10 o’clock positions which reveal its newest features: call notifications, sleep monitoring, activity tracking, and text notifications, respectively.

The new Ladies models are a result of the two worlds of technology and tradition coming together, and this case complement each other to perfection. A classic look to accompany the modern woman of today in all her daily activities from the workingwoman, to mothers and sport enthusiasts alike, motivating her to move more, sleep better, and ultimately improve her overall lifestyle.

Frederique Constant presents a feminine look with intricate detailed dials featuring guilloché decoration, various mother of pearl accents, applied Roman numeral indexes, and white diamonds. Three of the models come in an all steel offering and the last two in an elegant combination of steel and rose gold-plated bracelets. MMT SwissConnect designed the Ladies MMT-281 quartz module at a smaller scale to fit the more feminine, elegant 34mm case. The module is powered by 2+ years battery life.

Frederique Constant pays homage to the first Horological Smartwatch by unveiling its 2.0 version. The new men’s timepieces present a modern twist on the classic look of its predecessors. Arabic numbers replace the traditional Roman numerals, different colored dials such as navy blue, black and silver embellished by four different style leather straps in their black, blue, dark brown or light brown versions turn this watch into a genuine sports model for the active man. The MMT-282 quartz module is encapsulated in a 42mm case and is completed with a 4+ year battery life.
