Since 2004, Frédérique Constant is delivering timepieces with manufacture movements that are in-house developed, in-house manufactured and in-house assembled.

Following the success of the launch of the first Heart Beat Manufacture Calibre in 2004, Frédérique Constant has presented every year an additional version, revised, updated and technically advanced, to its Heart Beat Manufacture range.

Heart Beat Manufacture timepieces feature the iconic Heart Beat dial aperture at 6 O’Clock. The fine regulation is placed at the dial side of the movement, a patented feature. Via the see-through case-back the finely decorated movement can be seen.

Since the first delivery of its iconic “Manufacture Heart Beat” movement, in 2004, Frédérique Constant has developed 15 in-house handcrafted calibers, including the last 2014 creation: the Heart Beat Manufacture FC-942 Silicium, improved in terms of reliability, durability and pure technical excellence.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of its in-house handcrafted movements, Frédérique Constant Genève reveals two new Jubilee models within the Manufacture collection: the new Heart Beat Manufacture Silicium in 18K rose gold and in Platinum, and the Slimline Tourbillon Manufacture edited for the occasion with a dark green finishing at 10 pieces in 18K rose gold and 10 pieces in stainless steel.

The Heart Beat Manufacture watches with the new Silicium escapement are part of the Frédérique Constant Manufacture Collection. The Heart Beat Manufacture Silicium features the recognizable popular patented balance wheel bridge on the front side of the calibre. The Silicium escapement wheel can clearly be seen through the Heart Beat aperture in the dial, working tirelessly and at the same time creating an eye-catching effect. The new Heart Beat Manufacture Silicium Calibre is housed with a case measuring 42 mm in diameter.
