Frederique Constant is a Swiss watch manufacturing company domiciled in Geneva. It was founded in 1988 by a couple of independent entrepreneurs, Aletta and Peter Stas, to offer quality Swiss watches at competitive prices, with a view to democratising luxury Swiss Made watches. Frederique Constant creates, develops, assembles, and checks a wide variety of mechanical, quartz and connected timepieces at the same time within its 6,200 m2 Manufacture in Plan-les-Ouates (GE). Up to now, Frederique Constant has designed 29 Manufacture calibers, including high complications, such as the Tourbillon, Perpetual Calendar and Flyback Chronograph. Cause marketing initiatives are inherent in the brand’s DNA. These efforts include the Frederique Constant Foundation which locally supports DonorsChoose.org.
In 2015, Frederique Constant launched the Horological Smartwatch, the first Swiss Made connected watch with traditional styling. Powered by a connected module, the Horological Smartwatch represents a new segment in Swiss watchmaking. In 2018, the Classic Hybrid Manufacture succeeded it, combining a mechanical movement with intelligent features and an integrated caliber analysis system. It was followed by the Smartwatch Vitality line in 2020. Equipped with a new generation built-in heart rate sensor, it features a classic dial, combined with a digital display that is revealed on demand. Frederique Constant currently has some 3,000 points of sale in 120 countries around the world. In 2016, the Frederique Constant group (Frederique Constant, Alpina Watches, Ateliers deMonaco) joined the Japanese group Citizen to pursue its international development and nurture new synergies.
