Classics Index Automatic Heart Beat

The first Heartbeat timepiece was launched in 1994 and quickly became an staple of the brand. The purpose of the Heart Beat development was to show that these models were mechanical. With this in mind, the company added an aperture at the position of the balance wheel to show the beauty of the mechanical movement, of its “heartbeat”. At the time, this very innovative creation allowed Frederique Constant to demonstrate its watchmaking skills with clever ingenuity. 

Holding the FC-310 Heart Beat automatic movement, this timepiece showcases a decorated silver-colored dial, with its classic sunray guilloché style and accentuated with traditional Roman numerals indexes. The aperture at 12 o’clock, signature of the Heart Beat timepieces reveals the escapement in continuous motion whereas the see-through back-case exposes the decorated movement. This watch combines all the components of a high-end luxury timepiece while remaining affordable for those who wish to enter the exclusive world of haute horlogerie. Available in stainless steel and rose gold-plated, these timepieces cost respectively 1250 CHF and 1450 CHF.
