Frederique Constant Flyback Chronograph Manufacture Hands-On

Postby Racer-X » May 15th 2017, 1:27pm

by Jason Pitsch "Frederique Constant has finally debuted a watch that we’ve been expecting ever since their sister company, Alpina, launched an in-house flyback chronograph at Baselworld 2015.

Alpina, Frederique Constant, and Ateliers de Monaco are all part of the Frederique Constant Group, which is now owned by Citizen. It is worth noting, that the manufacture flyback chronograph design actually originated at Ateliers de Monaco in 2011."

I like it. There's something 1950s/1960s Patek-style about it. The registers, the chrono hands... I think it could use a moonphase aperture in the date subdial, but still, it's not half bad without it.
Do you think I'm a hypocrite? Well, you should. I wouldn't disagree with you.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
