Frederique Constant, which has been involved in various forms of motor sports for a number of years, has introduced a new model within its successful Vintage Rally Collection: the Healey Chronograph Automatic.
Frederique Constant is a longstanding partner of the famous Austin Healey car brand. Recently four original Austin Healey cars from the Southern Counties Club drove all the way to the Manufacture in Plan-les-Ouates, Switzerland. The four drivers came from the United-Kingdom each owned beautifully conserved vintage Healey cars.
Driving on a tour of Switzerland and Italy, the drivers were impressed by with Frederique Constant’s facilities and capabilities and they loved the new Vintage Rally Healey Chronograph.
Both carmaker and watchmaker deliver high-precision machines meant for ultimate use and pleasure. Frederique Constant designers created the Vintage Rally Healey chronograph, a timepiece with a motorsports heritage that combines timeless contemporary design with sporty elegance. Powered by the FC-397 automatic chronograph calibre, the movement has 25 jewels and a 46-hour power reserve. Its unique design is underlined with sub-dials that include a 30-minute counter at 3’oclock and small continuous seconds at 9 o’clock. The watch features a three-part rose gold plated polished stainless steel case classically sized at 42 mm and a convex sapphire crystal that offers protection from the elements.
The transparent case back enables viewing of the movement, designed to delight all watch enthusiasts. The green dial accents on the watch is designed to imbue the chronograph with a strong sporting character. The rose gold plated hands and the applied indexes are finished with superluminova, for ease of reading in the dark.
Water-resistant up to 50 metres, the Vintage Rally Healey Chronograph comes on a quality brown leather strap with vintage style punched holes for an added style factor. The Vintage Rally Healey Chronograph is also available with a silver polished stainless steel case with a black leather strap.
