The Swiss watch manufacturer Frederique Constant has further enriched and consolidated its Slimline collection this year with the launch of the Slimline Auto Heart Beat.

Featuring three brand new models with a 40mm case, the Slimline Auto Heart Beat is one of the slimmest models from the Frederique Constant collection.

The Slimline Auto Heart Beat  houses the FC-312 caliber, a mechanical hand-wound movement that is one of the most slender in its category and drives the heart beat, hours and minutes functions. This movement beats at a frequency of 28,800 alt/h, has 25 jewels and a 42-hour power reserve. In order to protect the watch, the case is water-resistant down to 30 ATM. The new models offer consumers a glimpse of the jewelled mechanism through the dial aperture at 12’ o’ clock.
