A Cel­e­bra­tion of Com­pli­ca­tions

Where Paris - - Shopping | For Him -

The house of Frédérique Con­stant is cel­e­brat­ing its 30th an­niver­sary this year with the launch of a lim­ited edi­tion Per­pet­ual Cal­en­dar Tour­bil­lon Man­u­fac­ture of which only, and fit­tingly, 30 time­pieces have been fash­ioned. The watch’s mech­a­nism is stun­ning with its sili­cium es­cape­ment wheel and an­chor, a smart weight balance wheel and the eye- catch­ing tour­bil­lon cage. Sili­cium is a ma­te­rial that is light, durable, an­ti­mag­netic and ex­tremely re­sis­tant to tem­per­a­ture changes all of­fer­ing great progress to pre­ci­sion. The cage of the tour­bil­lon is per­fectly bal­anced and com­posed of 80 parts con­ceived and pro­duced, as are all of the house’s move­ments, in the man­u­fac­ture’s work­shops. The watch’s highly so­phis­ti­cated Per­pet­ual Cal­en­dar com­pli­ca­tion dis­plays the day, date and month and ac­knowl­edges the num­ber of days in each month, dis­plays the year and au­to­mat­i­cally ad­justs it­self to the leap year. The time­pieces are out­fit­ted with a power re­serve of 38 hours and are pre­sented in a 42mm di­am­e­ter case that is avail­able in pol­ished stain­less steel, 18 carat rose gold plated stain­less steel or in 18 carat rose gold, with a see through back case. - P.V.
