About Frederique Constant
Frederique Constant SA is a luxury wristwatch manufacturer based in Plan-les-Ouates, Geneva. The company was established in its current form in 1988 by Aletta Bax and Peter Stas and is involved in all the stages of watch production, from initial design to final assembly. The company produces over 120,000 watches annually.
In February 2007, Frederique Constant began production of the Silicium escapement wheel (first introduced to the industry by Patek Philippe in 2005.) Frederique Constant introduced the Heart Beat Calibre FC 935 Silicium in October 2007. The FC Heart Beat implements new high tech materials to create better, more precise and more reliable mechanical watches.
In April 2008, Frederique Constant established itself as one of Switzerland’s leading watch brands with the creation of a tourbillon with a silicium escape-wheel and, for the first time, an amplitude of over 300 degrees between its vertical and horizontal positions. Coupled with the rapid oscillation, this gives the watch an unusually high level of precision, while the silicium guarantees optimum protection.
Frederique Constant's extensive watch collection includes the Heart Beat Manufacture (with in house movements), the Maxime Manufacture Automatic, Ladies Automatic, Runabout, Index, Vintage Rally, Junior (aimed at teenagers), Delight, Classics, Slim Line, Carree, Persuasion and Art Deco.
Frederique Constant is known for delicate rounded cases that require many hours of hand polishing.

Two Year Warranty
We sell luxury timepieces at considerably lower prices than the manufacturers list price. Gemnation is not
an Authorized Frederique Constant Watch Dealer and is not affiliated with Frederique Constant. Authorized dealers are not permitted
to discount or sell watches on the Internet. For this reason, we choose not to be authorized watch dealers
for many of the brands that we sell.
Since we are not authorized dealers for many of the watch manufacturers, we may be unable to ship the original
watch manufacturers warranty. In all cases, however, we provide a Two Year Gemnation Warranty (active from the
date of purchase).
Gemnation utilizes a full-time Swiss-trained watchmaker who is licensed and trained to repair every brand and
model of watch that we sell. If we can supply the original warranty we provide this information in the individual
watch description. Read More
