The Swiss manufacturer Frederique Constant once again attracts the attention of connoisseurs of watch art with a revolutionary release – this year’s novelty is equipped with a hybrid manufactory mechanism and combines three unique technologies at once.
The Frederique Constant FC-750MCN4H6 wristwatch is both a classic “mechanic” and an accessory with smartwatch functions. The limited edition has only 888 copies, so to get them into his collection, it is worth hurry.
Specifications of Frederique Constant Hybrid Manufacture watch
|Type of mechanism||mechanical self-winding|
|Clock face||blue guilloche|
|Bracelet||alligator leather strap|
Frederique Constant FC-750MCN4H6 outwardly do not differ from the classic “costume designers.” But it is only in appearance. Inside the model, a revolutionary mechanism is installed, combining three technologies at once:
1. Manufactured patented mechanism FC-750 with automatic winding, which combined mechanics and electronics. The assembly mechanism is carried out directly on the manufactory itself.
2. Smartwatch function.
3. Function analysis of the parameters of the mechanical caliber.
On the one hand, this is a mechanical decorated caliber with an automatic winding, a power reserve of 42 hours, an oscillation frequency of 28,800 vibrations/hour, and on the other, an electronic module responsible for the operation of “smart” functions.
The electronic module, like the mechanical one, is fully developed, manufactured and assembled in the walls of the manufactory Frederique Constant. The module captures and analyzes a series of data, and then transmits them to the smartphone screen using the Bluetooth function:
1. Monitoring the phases of sleep (you can find out the duration of the phases of deep and superficial sleep).
2. Counting the number of steps per day (there is the possibility of setting the minimum number).
3. Battery charge indicator.
4. Analysis of the parameters of the mechanical caliber.
Mechanical caliber parameters are transmitted directly to Frederique Constant. In case of detection of negative values, the owner receives a message about the need for maintenance. The analysis is carried out automatically every day at 4:00 am.
5. Worldtimer function (display of the second time zone and local time in 24-hour format).
The connection between the clock and the application is established by pressing the button located on the left side of the watch case, and the smart functions are displayed on the indicator at the 12-hour mark.
Design and materials used
The dark gray color of the dial is “diluted” with a guilloche pattern, silver overlay indices in the form of Roman numerals and hand polished silver arrows such as “Breguet” apples with a white luminescent coating.
The Frederique Constant FC-750MCN4H6 case is made of polished stainless steel, its diameter is 42 mm, and its water resistance is up to 50WR. Sapphire glass, convex. The case back is also equipped with a sapphire crystal, through which you can see the FC-750 movement. The mechanism is different finishes in the technique of granulation and circular pattern Cotes de Geneve. The belt is made of dark blue alligator leather with blue stitching.
Winder for automatic winding watches included
Included with the watch is a special box for automatic winding of watches (winder) and a removable electronic box for charging the battery of the electronic part of the mechanism. By the way, one battery charge lasts for 7 days of continuous work.
