As far as watch brands go, Frederique Constant is a relative newcomer to the horological game. The Geneva-based company was established in 1988 and released its first collection in 1992. Today, its elegant line of timepieces has spread and achieved success across the globe. Unlike its Swiss contemporaries, Frederique Constant watches are actually relatively affordable.
If you live or work around the Ortigas area and want to get your hands on this Swiss brand, you can check out its new store which just opened at The Podium. The official opening was attended by special guests, including Swiss ambassador to the Philippines Andrea Reichlin.
Among the watches displayed at the new Frederique Constant store are its line of smartwatches. Staying true to its roots, its digital line still looks just like a classic Swiss watch—otherwise known as a hybrid watch. The FC hybrids can monitor your sleep and activity levels via an app.
Like other watchmakers, Frederique Constant is no stranger to motorsports. It's been the official timekeeper for the Peking to Paris Motor Challenge and also sells its own line of rally-inspired timepieces. If you're on the lookout for a Swiss-made watch, whether dressy or slightly sporty, Frederique Constant's line is worth checking out.
