Frederique Constant  - Hybrid Manufacture

Frederique Constant Hybrid Manufacture

Frederique Constant adds new dial animations within its Hybrid Manufacture collection.

Since 2018 the brand has created a new watch category in the Swiss watch industry by combining traditional horology with ultra-tech modern smartwatches launching the Frederique Constant Hybrid Manufacture, a mixture of a classical automatic movement and a smartwatch module. Thanks to a classic case and dial, the Hybrid can be worn easily. But behind this timeless appearance lies a mechanical calibre with connected functionalities.

The Hybrid manufacture watch offers 3 main functions: 

 A Swiss made manufacture automatic movement with hours, minutes, date and 38-hour power reserve, a connected module allowing different activities such as activity tracking, defining your objective like number of steps per day, quality and quantity of sleep, dynamic coaching and a worldtimer but also a calibre analytics functionality that measures rate, amplitude and beat error of the manufacture automatic movement. All the results are communicated to the Hybrid App via Bluetooth and can be seen in the form of graphics over time.

This classic timepiece measures activity, sleep, offers dynamic coaching and analyses the mechanical movement. “The Hybrid Manufacture is a prime example of what the watch industry can do to modernize itself while still paying tribute to the traditional swiss watchmaking techniques,” says Niels Eggerding, Managing Director of Frederique Constant.

The watch 

The Frederique Constant Hybrid Manufacture comes with three new models and two dials versions. A silvered dial for the polished stainless steel and rose gold-plated version, each sold for 3250 CHF and 3550 CHF and a navy blue dial in the steel rose gold-plated watch, also sold for 3550 CHF. 

The Hybrid family is fitted with FC-750V4H6 automatic Manufacture Hybrid caliber and a 38-hours power reserve plus a 7+ days battery life for the connected module that can be linked to its Hybrid's companion application available both on Google Play and Apple Store. All collected data is saved each time one opens the app thanks to a dedicated Cloud hosted securely on a Swiss protected server. The movement is enhanced with Perlage and circular Côtes de Genève decorations and the dial boasts hours, minutes, seconds, as well as a date and connected counter in a 42 mm unique case size.
