Since 2009, Frederique Constant has been celebrating the legendary Runabout motorboats of the Roaring Twenties, with their iconic varnished wood design, by offering an attractive series of limited edition timepieces named “Runabout”.
This year’s collection sees the “Venice Editions” of the Runabout, consisting of a chronograph version and a three-hand automatic with date. Both timepieces have a 43mm stainless-steel case and a silvered dial with applied, rose-gold plated Arabic hour markers. Each edition is complemented by a light-brown calfskin strap with off-white stitching and a folding buckle.
The new models are available as a limited edition of 1,888 pieces per version. Traditionally, each Runabout timepiece comes with its own luxurious, handmade wooden case that echoes the passionate craftsmanship of the yachts. Alongside the watch, a miniature reproduction of a classic Runabout boat can be found inside the unique gift box.
