After the first Frederique Constant Worldtimer launch in 2012, the watch stood proudly as one of the brand’s best-selling Manufacture watches. Since then, this elegant and sophisticated traveling watch has come in a range of 11 models featuring a wide colour palette (brown, blue, green, silver) .
Today yet another colour variation is unveiled featuring a dark grey design of the world map. The date by hand at 6 o’clock makes the perfect addition to the Worldtimer function and further enhances the aesthetic of the watch. The indexes on each hour add to the dial’s readability, offering additional comfort when glancing at the time.

The new Frederique Constant Classic Worldtimer Manufacture comes in two models featuring a 42mm case in rose-gold-plated stainless steel or in stainless steel both limited to 718 pieces each.
In-house designed, developed and produced, the FC-718 caliber powers the Worldtimer functions as well as the date. Both are adjustable via the crown, with no additional push-buttons. To easily set the watch, one must choose between three settings; the first lets the user wind the watch by turning the crown upwards; the second allows to set the date and city by turning the crown upwards and downwards respectively; and the third position enables the user to set the time by turning the crown downwards.
The timepiece displays two separate discs, one featuring a 24h day-night indicator and a second one with the twenty-four cities.
The FC-718 caliber is decorated with Perlage and circular Côtes de Genève and holds a 42-hour power reserve.
