Despite their long-standing heritage in the Swiss Watch Industry, they have not allowed themselves to stale. Instead, they have kept themselves relevant by embracing innovation and creativity. In 2015 Frederique Constant created the first Swiss made Horological Smartwatch displayed entirely with analogue dial, thus, a brand new watch category was introduced to the Swiss watch industry.
Every year Frederique Constant creates a limited edition watch that is nautical-inspired. This practice started in 2009 when Frederique Constant entered a partnership with the Riva Historical Society. The Riva Historical Society is a non-profit organization that seeks to help owners of still-existing Riva boats, conserve and maintain them in the best possible way. These boats inspired the “Runabout collection”.
The Runabout collection fuses the best of classic Italian style with the latest technical innovation. This year, 2016, Frederique Constant is offering two limited-edition watches.
