Founded in 1988 by entrepreneurs Aletta and Peter Stas and driven by passion, Frederique Constant has grown into one of the largest Swiss watch manufactures. Since 2004, Frederique Constant has been developing, manufacturing, and assembling in-house calibers with 18 different versions. Frederique Constant watches are defined by their high quality, differentiation, and precision in design and manufacturing. The brand takes a leading role in the accessible luxury segment. In 2014, production reached over 130,000 watches sold in over 3,000 points of sale in 100+ countries around the globe.
As a growing global enterprise, it has long been the belief at Frederique Constant that "what society gives should be returned." The company has done this through the organization and sponsorship of major charity events across the planet. For every watch sold from the ladies Heart Beat collection and the new Delight collection, anywhere in the world, $50 is donated to various heart and children-related charities.
Frederique Constant invites you to explore the collection and “Live Your Passion.”
Powered by MotionX®, the Swiss Horological Smartwatch has bi-directional communication with iPhone and Android apps. It is the synthesis of high-tech innovation and traditional Swiss watch craftsmanship, the link between modern and classic, the bridge between Silicon Valley and Switzerland. There is no digital screen on the Horological Smartwatches; rather, the beautiful diamond-cut hands on the dial analogically display information.
Perfectly aligned with the “Live Your Passion” slogan for the brand, stimulated by the entrepreneurial spirit of the founders, Frederique Constant proudly supports the humanitarian efforts and passions of like-minded individuals and organizations. In 2015, Frederique Constant will step up its charitable activities significantly in connection to the Frederique Constant Foundation that is currently being incorporated in Switzerland. Current and future collaborations support the five key collections offered by the brand.
Passion comes in many forms. Mr. Carlo Riva exhibited his passion through the design of the sleek, wooden power boats that graced the planet's finest lakes in 1950. In 1998, the Riva Historical Society was founded with the aim of locating and aiding in the conservation and restoration of the magnificent Riva boats. This year again, Frederique Constant is delighted to announce its continuing partnership with the Riva Historical Society. As a salute to the iconic Riva water craft and the passion that spawned it, Frederique Constant introduces the 2015 Limited Edition Runabout Moonphase Collection.
Frederique Constant has long been associated with numerous vintage car rallys all over the globe, often as the official timekeeper. It has been closely associated with events from China to France with the Peking to Paris Rally and also to America, Canada and Mexico with the Carrera Panamericana. The Vintage Rally collection shares a number of features with the cars to which they pay homage - Limited Edition to 1,888 pieces, leather straps inspired by vintage driving gloves, and special gift box packaging featuring the famous NOJ393. Pure style for pure passion.
Frederique Constant joins forces with leading entertainment journal, Variety and UN Women’s HeForShe campaign, to host a landmark event on the subject of gender equality within the film industry. Peter Stas noted, “It’s the strength of two genders that create more than its sum.”
Frederique Constant partners with Variety and the Power of Women initiative, honoring the most philanthropic women in film who have been selected as Variety's "Inspiration Impact Honorees." Through their humanitarian efforts, these women have made a significant difference to their chosen causes. The 2015 honorees are Glenn Close (for her work with Bring Change2Mind), Lena Dunham (Girls Educational & Mentoring Services – GEMS), Whoopi Goldberg (Figure Skating in Harlem), Rachel Weisz (The Opportunity Network) and Kim Kardashian West (Children's Hospital Los Angeles).
Frederique Constant continues its dedication to making a change in the lives of women and children. Frederique Constant will participate in activities alongside the Eva Longoria Foundation and the Ricky Martin Foundation, all focusing on improvement of the well-being of underprivileged children. “Aletta and myself are happy with this partnership as a first step to expand our charitable activities in connection with the Frederique Constant Foundation,” says Peter Stas.
