MANUFACTURE PERPETUAL CALENDAR
As a passionate supporter of charitable foundations, Frederique Constant continues to show its support to this noble cause. This year, the brand does so with the Perpetual Calendar, which has been praised as one of the most reliable and affordable grandes complications in the industry. For this exclusive Only Watch edition, the brand wanted to present a variation of this timepiece that is incredibly jaw dropping.
The timepiece features the functions of a perpetual calendar, such as hours, minutes, moonphase, date, day, month and most importantly the leap year. All in an 18k polished rose gold 42mm case with a see-through back case revealing intricate Perlage and Côtes de Genève decoration on the FC-775 in-house caliber.
However, what makes this piece truly exclusive is the one-of-a-kind meteorite dial giving the once classic timepiece, an edgy twist! Meteorite stones are often found in desert areas; in this case, the one used for this unique piece was uncovered in the desert of Namibia. A perpetual calendar perpetuates the endless passing of time, this unstoppable force by which all of mankind’s actions are defined. It was only fitting that the brand chose a material that has most likely wandered through space for millions of years before hitting earth to symbolize the etherealness of our lives, a symbol of eternity and a message to live to the fullest, making every minute count.
