Frederique Constant creates perpetual calendar tourbillon for under £20,000

Frederique Constant Perpetural Calendar Tourbillon

Frederique Constant’s movement manufacture sophistication is put to the ultimate test with its Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon Manufacture using the FC-975 in-house movement.

The grand complication watches would not look out of place in a Patek Philippe window, but one of two new models releasing this year can be bought for under £20,000.

Frederique Constant patented the tourbillon cage, which is composed of 80 components all produced with a precision of 1-2 microns by its manufacture’s CNC machine.

The Perpetual Calendar complication displays the day, date and month, which will stay correct for 400 years.

The timepieces are presented in a 42mm diameter 3-part case, available either in polished stainless steel or 18ct rose gold with a see-through case back.

Frederique Constant says that only two of the watches (one steel and one gold) will come to the UK this year. The steel watch will cost £19,995 and the gold is £27,995.
