Of the four new models designed by the manufacture, three are stone set. Still just 36 mm in diameter, the bezels are now richly adorned with 40 diamonds.
Their delicate sparkle is revealed on two new variations of dial. The first features a mother-of-pearl chapter-ring, the centre of which is decorated with the Côtes de Genève motif, serving as a discreet reminder of the canton where the Frederique Constant manufacture is located (2,395 euros).
The second dial is navy blue and provides the Classics Quartz Ladies with an attractive blue/white contrast effect, evoking the light of day and the dark of night. The timepiece is available with a steel bracelet (2,395 euros) or a calf leather strap (2,295 euros).
So as to produce the most striking effect, only the watch with a blue dial features hand-polished steel hands, while the watch with a mother-of-pearl dial is finished with black steel hands. Reversing the colour combination ensures the hours and minutes are easy to read on each model, both of which feature a date window at 6 o’clock. Each timepiece is powered by a Frederique Constant quartz movement, ensuring perfect daily timekeeping for almost four years (45 months).
The fourth and final model incorporates some bolder contrasts. The rose gold-plated case sets off the deep black dial with its Roman numerals and white steel hands beautifully. Available with a black calf leather strap, this new Classics Quartz Ladies watch exudes serious modern elegance, for those who want a sophisticated look without compromise, or breaking the bank (895 euros).
