Ask a woman what she looks for in a timepiece, and she’ll most probably cite style and reliability as her two main concerns. After all, with life being as hectic as it is, the last thing a woman needs is to worry if her timepiece matches her #OOTD; or if it’ll keep her on track with a back-to-back schedule. But what if we told you that there’s now such a watch that will not only win you over with its chic, sophisticated looks, but also contribute towards the education of children from impoverished communities? With Frederique Constant’s new Ladies Automatic, you’ll get just that.
Sporting a redesigned 36mm case that’s more streamlined, sensuous and ergonomic, the new six-piece collection features two designs in a burst of distinguishing hues: The Heart Beat model, powered by the brand’s in-house Calibre FC-310 Heart Beat automatic movement bears the brand’s signature double heart dial opening at 12 o’clock for a scintillating peek into the watch’s inner workings. The full-dial version, on the other hand, bears the Calibre FC-303 automatic movement for an added function of a date aperture at three o’clock.
What runs consistently throughout the collection is the chic tone-on-tone textured dial that’s graced with diamond hour markers for that subtle sparkle. Available in steel or rose-gold plated steel, the Swiss watchmaker has consciously worked towards offering women a contemporary range of designs that they will delight in.
Furthermore, a partnership with its Global Charity Ambassador and actress Gwyneth Paltrow sees the brand donating US$50 from the sale of each watch to Paltrow’s chosen charity, Donorschoose.org, a non-profit organisation that connects donors with public school teachers from across America who have requested for materials and experiences for their students. So what you get, in essence, is a watch that you can truly take pride in.
“I am happy to continue my partnership with Frederique Constant and excited to unveil my latest charity campaign with the brand. What’s great about Frederique Constant is their combination of classic style with strong values of giving back. We are very well aligned in our passion for charity,” says Paltrow about her relationship with the brand.
