In 2016, the Swiss watch manufacturer Frederique Constant is further enriching and consolidating its Slimline collection, which has become over the years a brand icon with the new Slimline Auto Heart Beat.
The absolute elegance of these three brand new models is due to their pure lines and the quality of the design, one of the slimmest models of Frederique Constant. Indeed with their 40mm case, available in a polished stainless steel or a luxurious rose gold plated, these new timepieces are visibly masculine and will look stylish on any man’s wrist. A Vividly eye catching mix between classical timepiece and innovation especially as we catch a glimpse of the jewelled mechanism through the dial aperture at 12′ o’clock.
The quintessentially classic and traditional design of Frederique Constant watches are nonetheless enhanced by numerous details that are often also innovative. It was Frederique Constant in 1994 that developed the very first Heart Beat watch by showing the mechanical movement and therefore created a trend throughout the Horological industry.
The result of an exercise in style, and with the focus on minimalism, the Slimline Auto Heart Beat reflects a movement towards the essential. These new timepieces incorporate specific codes that enhance its unique character and its extreme simplicity with its thin polished baton-type hours markers, along with a supremely pure dial, either dark grey or silver. The overall design of the new Slimline Auto Heart Beat make them light, both visually and physically.
As Frederique Constant Slimline collection is synonymous of thin models, the Slimline Heart Beat houses the FC-312 caliber, an automatic movement that is one of the most slender in its category and drives the heart beat, hours and minutes functions. This movement beats at a frequency of 28,800 alt/h, has 25 jewels and a 42-hour power reserve. In order to protect the watch, the case is water-resistant down to 30 ATM.
Finally, the Slimline Auto heart Beat is graced with a delicate alligator strap, either black or brown matching the colour of the case.
