Watches Tradition and InnovationBASELWORLD 2016: The Manufacture Perpetual Calendar made by Frédérique Constant
An authentic challenge masterfully taken up: Frédérique Constant presents its first Manufacture perpetual calendar movement. Considered one of the peak achievements of the watchmaking art, this mechanical marvel was developed using cutting-edge technologies.
The Manufacture Perpetual Calendar combining tradition and innovation is designed to match the modern world: it is sturdy, reliable and easily adjustable, while embodying the excellence of Swiss fine craftsmanship. This highly sophisticated model takes account of alternating 30- and 31-day months, of the 28 days in February, as well as the leap-year cycle and the moon phases. All these indications can be easily adjusted by means of inset pushbuttons on the sides of the case. This movement joins the now 19-strong family of Frédérique Constant in-house calibres.
