Frederique Constant is a (relatively) new brand, however one of the most promising watch brands of the Swiss watch industry. And now you have a chance to win one!

In 1992, four years after the brand was launched, the first timepieces where released. Since then Frederique Constant realized a constant yearly growth of 25-30%… impressive isn’t it? In 2004 Frederique Constant released it’s first manufacture movement, the Heart Beat Manufacture Caliber FC-910. In the following years three more calibers where released including a tourbillon. Later i will write more about the Frederique Constant Heart Beat Manufacture calibers.

The above Frederique Constant Maxime Manufacture Automatic was released at Baselworld 2009. The dial shows a combination of a sunray and Clous de Paris pattern, nothing new, but I think it looks very good. The stainless steel case has a diameter of 42 mm and is equipped with a convex sapphire crystal.

Not only it’s classy looks stand out, the prize is just amazing. At the time of release the retail prize was just below € 2.000,- . This makes it the most affordable watch with a manufacture caliber.

Now let’s move on to how you can win one of 5 Frederique Constant watches or $ 5,000 prize money.

    It will be interesting to see how many people participate because the rules & requirements seem quite cumbersome to me. Produce a 3:30 video – seems that they are asking a bit much! I am skeptical that many will go for this, but the good thing is those who do will have better odds of winning!

  2. Hi Kyle, i have never made a video, but my dad does video editing on his computer. And i’m sure that when he sits down an evening, he can make a video of 3,5 minutes.
    However me… not a chance, no clue how to do that 🙂
