Frederique Constant | 35 Candles Set The Tone | Worldtempus

To do so in style, the brand has embarked on a highly sophisticated endeavor with the creation of the Classic Tourbillon Meteorite Manufacture in an exclusive limited series. In a first for the brand, the movement is entirely hand-finished and the Tourbillon Manufacture FC-980, which is also celebrating its 15th anniversary, perfectly executes its mechanical choreography at 6 o’clock and is framed for the first time by a splendid platinum case. The icing on the cake is that this creation is available in an array of 35 timepieces that are each unique to the very special production process for of its meteorite dial. A fine testimony to boldness and savoir-faire. Happy birthday Frederique Constant!
