Baselworld 2017 – Frederique Constant Flyback Chronograph Manufacture (Their First In-House Chrono Explained With Exclusive Video)Flavio Salvador
Believe us or not, but this watch is a massive development for Frederique Constant. Indeed, creating a chronograph movement is far from being a simple move. It is even one of the most feared development for a watchmaker, as the chronograph can be seen as one of the most complex types of complication, even if it’s a widely used one. Today, as Baselworld 2017 opens its doors, we take a close look at the new Frederique Constant Flyback Chronograph Manufacture, the first in-house chronograph of the brand, explained in video by Pim Koeslag (Head of Watchmaking) and with live photos.
Even if this video will give you as much details as you’ll need, we’ll still take a closer look at what the Frederique Constant Flyback Chronograph Manufacture is. First of all, this new watch stays entirely in line with the usual “affordable luxury” concept of the brand. This mean that you don’t have to expect an incredible increase of price, even to get your hands on a in-house chronograph. Most watch from Frederique Constant are in the 2,000/5,000 Euro price range and so does this Flyback Chronograph Manufacture. On the other, it also means that you can expect to see an integrated, column-wheel and vertical clutch architecture. That would be a bit too much in that price range… Yet, this watch has some very good arguments.
