Just like the previous Worldtimer editions, a fine world map is etched on the dial and twenty-four cities are indicated on its outer rim. The date by hand is located at 6 o’clock and perfectly fits within the dial. Time telling on this world time watch is kept at its simplest, and therefore made easy and straightforward.
Setting up your Worldtimer
The FC-718 caliber movement is an extraordinary piece of machinery not only because it is completely in-house designed, developed and produced but also because its Worldtimer functions as well as the date are all adjustable via the crown, with no additional push buttons. Frederique Constant was the first to announce such an accomplishment and three Worldtimer editions later, this innovation is still one of the top-selling points for this watch.
To set the worldtime functions, you must choose between three settings; the first lets you wind the watch by turning the crown upwards; the second allows the user to set the date and city by turning the crown upwards and downwards respectively; and the third position allows the user to set the time by turning the crown downwards.
This timepiece displays two separate discs, one featuring a 24h day-night indicator and a second one with the twenty-four cities.As a Manufacture movement, the FC-718 caliber is decorated with Perlages and Côtes de Genève, and holds a 42-hour power reserve. The grey timepiece is complete with a black alligator strap with white stitches.
With yet another revival of the Classic Worldtimer Manufacture, Frederique Constant continues to enhance its Manufacture collection. Always mindful of the philosophy of “Accessible Luxury”, the brand commits to this attitude once more with a price tag of this world time collection starting from SGD 5,400. Startling really, all considering the fact that this is a complication piece, and everything has been manufactured completely in-house at Frederique Constant’s home ground in Geneva.
