Frederique Constant Classic Worldtimer Manufacture is a Ticket to Brown Town
Earth tones have been making a bit of a comeback lately, and Swiss watchmaker Frederique Constant is happy to hop on the bandwagon with its latest timepiece, the Classic Worldtimer Manufacture. The 42 mm steel case wears rose gold plating to match that on the hour, minute, second and date hands. Those hands, incidentally, are set atop a brown world map on the main dial that is itself atop a “sea” of darker brown.
The Frederique Constant crew decided to power this watch with an in-house FC-718 movement with 42 hours of power reserve, while the brown leather band continues the chocolaty motif. As for pricing, expect to pay $4,195 if you want to slip one of these beauties onto your wrist.
