Frédérique Constant was established in its current form in 1988 by husband and wife duo Aletta Bax and Peter Stas with a simple and refreshing ethos: let more people enjoy luxury. This has resulted in a series of high quality classical Swiss timepieces priced in such a way so as to broaden their interest from an elitist circle of wealthy connoisseurs to appreciative enthusiasts. The company launched their first collection in 1992. Comprising of just six models, every timepiece was assembled by a master watchmaker in Geneva. To this day, each Frédérique Constant timepiece is developed, produced and assembled, largely by hand, at the company’s state-of-the-art in-house Geneva manufacturing centre. Shifting production to this facility has resulted Frédérique Constant now being able to offer a staggering fifteen unique movements across its timepieces, including the pioneering introduction of a silicon escapement wheel in 2007 and the development of a horological smartwatch in 2015. In an effort to diversify its output, and as a measure of its success, Frédérique Constant purchased the legendary Swiss watchmaker Alpina in 2002, and, under the company’s stewardship, Alpina has regained its standing as the world-leading sports watch manufacturer. In spite of this diversification, three core values continue to underpin every watch that the company produces: design, quality and innovation, resulting in Frédérique Constant watches being exhibited at Basel’s globally-renowned World Watch, Clock and Jewelry Show since 1995. Such is the brand’s success; it can now name Hollywood actresses Eva Longoria and Gwyneth Paltrow among its ambassadors, with the latter assisting in the design of a collection named after her. As well as this, the twenty-first century has also seen numerous and considerable acts of charity become a feature of the company’s ethos. In 2010, the company donated a $50,000 cheque to the American Heart Association, $125,000 was pledged to the International Children’s Heart Foundation between 2008 and 2011 and $50 from every watch sold in the Double Heart Beat Collection is donated to various relating to the heart and children. Whilst remaining independent and family-owned throughout, Frédérique Constant has gradually become a key player within the watchmaking world, with its avid commitment to pairing superb quality with affordability offering an almost unparalleled level of value within today’s market. The Frédérique Constant Horological Smartwatch family combines classic Swiss manufacturing techniques with the very latest Silicon Valley technology. While still retaining an analog face and elegant Frédérique Constant design, every watch in the collection will track the wearer’s daily activity, monitor their sleep, remind them to get active and offer dynamic coaching tips.
