Frederique Constant introduces six new Ladies Automatic timepieces with global charity ambassador Gwyneth Paltrow

Geneva - June 2018, #frederiqueconstant unveils its new additions to the classic and feminine #ladiesautomatic collection. The new models are highlighted gracefully by Global Charity Ambassador #gwynethpaltrow in a new advertising campaign.

Frederique Constant welcomes six new models into its iconic #ladiesautomatic collection, completely redesigned with a new case shape and new color combinations.

An ode to femininity

A spring breeze is blowing through #frederiqueconstant, thanks to the new #ladiesautomatic models: striking, they make ideal accessories for the season. Distinguished by their subtle lines, refined decorations and colorful tones, they will please women who value everyday practicality and elegant timepieces. By combining tradition and modernity, these watches enhance the natural beauty of women, adorning their delicate wrists.

Frederique Constant’s signature: the Heart Beat opening

The brand’s iconic “Heart Beat” signature opening at 12 o’clock stands proudly on the decorated sunray dials. The four new colored Heart Beat dials are further enhanced by applied diamonds and Roman numeral indexes. With each glance, its owner can enjoy both the beauty of the design and the craftsmanship of the watch.

This emblematic “Heart Beat” aperture has been a renowned success for #frederiqueconstant over the years. It is a true expression of the brand’s interpretation of time. Thanks to this embellished opening, protected by a convex sapphire crystal, the beating automatic movement can be admired.

The six new watches come either with polished stainless steel or rose gold plated 36mm diameter cases with an open case-back.

Two models are powered by the FC-303 automatic movement displaying the hours, minutes and date at 3 o’clock. Four models are powered by the FC-310 automatic movement displaying the Heart Beat aperture at 12 o’clock, the hours and minutes. Both calibers are Swiss made with 26 jewels, beating at 28’000 alt per hour, offer a 38-hour power reserve and a water resistance of 50 meters. Modern and stylish, the alligator straps matching the dial colors are available in shiny grey, light blue, navy and burgundy.

Supporting DonorsChoose.org

For each #ladiesautomatic watch sold, $50 is donated to DonorsChoose.org, Gwyneth Paltrow’s charity of choice. This partnership enables DonorsChoose.org to support education and sports for underprivileged children. Each year, #frederiqueconstant wants to make a significant change and impact positively the lives of many with this charity engagement.

Overall, a true homage to the beauty and charm of women and an ideal match for any lady, who wants a fine and elegant piece of watchmaking.
