Known for its immaculate designs and world-class technology, Frederique Constant now introduces brand’s first Flyback Chronograph Manufacture. The elegant Swiss made timepiece has been designed from scratch at Frederique constant over a period of six years. The watch is an in-house manufactured and assembled product that defines style and splendor. The latest collection offers a range of five different elegant and classy models.
Inspired by the 1930s, the flyback chronograph is a marvel and goes beyond the regular chronograph function. Whereas the regular chronograph function is used as a stopwatch to measure time during a specific elapsed interval, with a Flyback, a user is able to operate the chronograph without resetting it to zero every time. With the flyback, the chronograph’s hand can be stopped, reset to zero, and restarted with one push of a button. This function is essential for timing an elapsed interval of events during races.
