Frederique Constant - Classics Art Déco Round

Frederique Constant Classics Art Déco Round

For the first time since its launch in 2007, the Classics Art Deco collection welcomes round models.

The Art Déco artistic movement was formed in the 1910s and reached its pinnacle in the 1920s. Thus, exactly a century later, Frederique Constant’s eponymous collection now has a brand-new interpretation: The Classics Art Déco Round. 

This new, 100% feminine model builds on over 10 years of watchmaking and stylistic achievements. Frederique Constant created the “Classics Art Déco” range in 2007. Going against the fashion grain, it already showed the family house’s spirit of total independence: although the trend was towards “oversize” and mixed watches, Frederique Constant sought a timeless classicism, with a delicate and elegant collection. It was followed in 2013 by a daring oval variation, an assertive and distinguished silhouette still in the collection. 

Round form

Today, the round form is offered for the first time in the “Classics Art Déco” collection with 5 new models. It is the result of a thinking process of over ten years about the design, femininity and subtleness. Very often seen as the starting point of watch collections, the perfect circle is, for Frederique Constant, a carefully considered style culmination. 

The new Classics Art Déco Round line has appropriated the classic look of its elders while asserting itself as a timepiece of the age. Resolutely modern, the watch is above all feminine, with a very delicate casing, of harmonious proportions and considerable finesse. For this purpose, the casing has also been slightly curved to perfectly fit the contour of the wrist.

A large range of finishes

Les finitions de cette nouvelle gamme qui révèle aujourd'hui 5 modèles ont fait l’objet d’une attention poussée dans ses moindres détails. La boîte de 30 mm, par exemple, a été cannelée sur sa carrure. Côté cadran, les heures et minutes sont indiquées par des aiguilles « à pomme évidée », selon le style imposé par Breguet il y a plus de 200 ans, affinées et polies à la main. Elles survolent un cadran guilloché de son centre vers l’extérieur, qui viendra diffuser la lumière vers les chiffres romains des heures. Trois des cinq modèles proposés combinent ce guilloché soleil avec un tour de cadran en nacre, sur un boîtier en acier ou en finition or rose.

Each dial comes with its own strap available in either steel, steel and plated rose gold or blue satin. These two models complete their hint of glamour with a discreet mounting of 9 diamonds set into each horn, in addition to the cabochon in the crown of each model. 

The new Classics Art Déco Round watches house Frederique Constant quartz movement and are available from only 850 euros.
