Baselworld 2019: Frédérique Constant Presents Two New 'Art Déco' Watches
Frédérique Constant will be bringing a taste of the Roaring Twenties to the Baselworld watch fair with two new retro-chic models to add to its Art Déco collection. The two new models respect the watchmaker's "accessible luxury" concept, with prices starting from €1,150. These two new versions stand out with their oval case -- featuring a fluted caseband -- finished in polished stainless steel or in two-tone rose-gold-plated polished stainless steel. For a feminine and highly elegant touch, the white or blue mother-of-pearl dial -- depending on the model -- features a Guilloché decoration bordered by minute markers.
The indices alternate diamonds and Roman numerals, with silver or black applied numerals or applied rose-gold-plated numerals, depending on the model. The watches use the FC-200 Swiss quartz caliber movement with hours and minutes functions. Both are water-resistant to 30 meters.
The steel "Art Déco" watch is priced €1,150 while the two-tone model retails for €1,350.
