Frederique Constant presents its first novelty of 2018, a new edition of its attractive, affordable — and increasingly popular — Classic Worldtimer Manufacture. New here is the beautiful forest/hunter green colorway. Otherwise, the watch carries forward with the classic design of previous editions including the fine world map etched on the dial and the twenty-four cities ringing the outer edge, as well as a date subdial at 6 o’clock. The case measures 42mm in diameter, made of steel with a polished finish. It is fitted on a matching green alligator strap with white stitching.
The FC-718 caliber movement is in-house designed, developed and produced. What makes it extraordinary is that its Worldtimer functions as well as the date and time are all adjustable via the crown itself, with no additional push-buttons.
All this for such a relatively affordable price: this new Frederique Constant Worldtimer Manufacture reference FC-718GRWM4H6 is priced at $3,445. Nicely done!
