Wristwatches with perpetual calendar by Frédérique Constant exclusively in Wiesbaden
The motto of Frédérique Constant is ›Live your passion‹. It was this highly emotional passion for the art of watchmaking that gave birth to the company. Namely from Peter and Aletta Stas' passion for elegant and technically first-class watches. The founding couple not only admired the mechanical quality, but also the extremely elegant aesthetics of the Swiss timepieces. Since 1988, Frédérique Constant, a young and innovative company, has been committed to developing classic high-quality watches at reasonable prices, in order to make them accessible to a wider audience of watch lovers. By the beginning of 2006, the Manufacture has been based in Plan-les-Ouates, Switzerland. All stages of watch development are accommodated there under one roof – from the first draft to assembly and final quality control.
The Frédérique Constant Heartbeat Series
The first specially developed manufactory caliber was created in 2004 for models from the Heartbeat series. The charitable commitment of Frédérique Constant is linked to the models in this series. For every watch sold from the Heartbeat women's collection, the company donates $50 to various heart and children's disease charities.
For Frederique Constant it became a matter of honour to present sensational innovations again and again. In Plan-Les-Oates, 19 manufactory movements have been completely developed to date. It was here that the first ›Horological Smartwatch‹ with an analogue dial, manufactured in Switzerland, was created. An absolute world first that caused a stir in the watch world in 2015.
Frederique Constant Innovation: The perpetual calendar
Novelty for 2016 was the first perpetual calendar developed in-house by Frederique Constant. A complication is a challenge for any luxury watch brand and so it was a sensation in Basel – also due to the comparatively affordable price. This masterpiece of precision mechanics is designed for an entire century and will display precise time and date day after day – even for your grandchildren. The development took three years. Despite its fine and elegant construction, the Perpetual Calendar is robust, reliable and easy to use. The final assembly of the calibre takes two days for an experienced watchmaker. The entire production process even takes 8 to 10 months.

What is a perpetual calendar?
A simple watch with a date display must be set at the end of each short month. In addition to time, date, day of the week and month, a perpetual calendar indicates which phase of the four-year leap year cycle we are currently in. A perpetual calendar clock 'knows' when February has 28 or 29 days.Learn more
