Hiren Kumar Bose on the Worldtimer totally controlled by the crown
The brand which in 2015 introduced the first Swiss-made Horological Smartwatch adds a new Worldtimer to the Classic Manufacture Collection, tracking time in twenty-four of the world’s most wonderful cities.
Frederique Constant has redesigned the Classic Worldtimer Manufacture and presents its latest version with a sophisticated brown colour pattern. A dark brown design of the world map finely etched onto to the dial and the twenty-four cities on its outer rim make you wish for the next destination. The date by hand at 6 o’clock seamlessly combines with the Worldtimer function without disrupting the aesthetic of the watch. And even though the dial is busy with information, indexes on each hour make reading the time an easy and simple task. Rose gold-plated stainless steel and brown patterns make the new Worldtimer, an elegant and sophisticated travelling watch.
In order to hold the 139 parts and measuring 30mm, the Manufacture has been able to create an in-house developed, produced and assembled calibre, namely FC-718. The Worldtimer function is completely controlled by the crown. Thus, no additional push buttons or correctors were added which is aesthetically more pleasant and simpler to use. This Worldtimer features two discs, one displaying 24h day-night indication and a second one listing the twenty-four cities. Additionally, the watch holds a 42h power reserve.
