Baselworld 2014 sneak preview: The Frédérique Constant Classics Manufacture Worldtimer

Since the launch of the first Worldtimer the watch has been well received. It is the mixture of quality, design and price that makes its success. This is a new version with a lustrous silver dial in two executions.

Both models are powered by the FC-718 Manufacture calibre, with 26 jewels and a 42-hour power reserve. The watch features hours, minutes and seconds, an extra-large date counter at the 6 o’clock position and a 24-hour disc with day-night indicators circling the hour and minute indexes. Both models display parallel to the local time the actual zonetime in 24 time zones represented by 24 of the world’s greatest cities; all functions of the watch are accessible through a single crown.

Both new models are presented in a polished, three-part stainless steel cases, with a convex sapphire crystals and with a see-through case back. The watches are water resistant to 50 meters beneath the sea.

The FC-718MC4H6B features a lustrous silver dial with a simple yet rich “guilloche” decoration at the center. The second of the two new models is the FC-718WM4H6B. This model features a detailed silver world map at its center, giving the watch that real “wow” factor.

To give these two new models an extra-bright and sporty look, they are finished with a unique, highly polished stainless steel bracelet, featuring a five-link design and butterfly buckle with pushers.
