Constant Launches Two New Ultra-thin Perpetual Calendar Watches

The pursuit of better value for consumers has always been the core concept of Frederique Constant. In 2016, Frederique Constant introduced a new mechanism of excellence with its first self-made FC-775 calendar caliber.

   Frederique Constant’s main goal is to make a watch of a modern size, keeping the sub-dial from the center at a proper distance, ensuring visual harmony in the overall dial design.

   The new watch is available in a refined polished stainless steel case (model: FC-775G4S6) and a polished stainless steel rose gold-plated case (model: FC-775G4S4), with a gray sunburst dial and appliqued hour-markers. And Geneva print.

   As a perpetual chronometer, the new watch can not only indicate the phase of the moon phase, but also display the minutes, hours, date, week, month and four-digit year; clever layout, presenting a beautiful and easy-to-read dial. The date display is set at 3 o’clock, the week display is set at 9 o’clock, the month and leap year displays are set at 12 o’clock, and the final moon phase display is set at 6 o’clock.

   Each function can be easily adjusted with the corrector. Once set, this highly complex mechanism can accurately calculate months of 30 days and 31 days, February of only 28 days, and a leap year cycle of February 29 every four years. In general, this watch can run accurately for 400 years without any manual adjustments. However, because the current Gregorian calendar has an exception every 400 years, the watch needs to be adjusted on March 1, 2100.
