More than twenty years ago, in 1999, Frederique Constant presented its very first Highlife watches. In 2020, the Maison revived the iconic design and relaunched this collection with modern, timeless lines anchored in the 21st century. The latter, after a triumphant reception, inspired the Highlife women’s collection unveiled in Spring 2021 for watch lovers – modern women of today and tomorrow who are elegant and trend-conscious.

The new look of the limited Couple Edition is clean, modern and timeless. Both dials, for men as well as women, are champagne coloured. The sunburst finish reflects the timeless and elegant look that Frederique Constant‘s Highlife collection is known for. The design is completed by its yellow gold hands and applied indexes.

The Highlife Ladies Automatic collection thus reopens a new dimension in Frederique Constant‘s definition of affordable luxury. A petite 34mm case that exudes grace and confidence combines the subtlety of an exquisitely feminine watch with the presence of a timepiece that brings its own identity and character. With its strong yet soft lines, this new design symbolizes the modernity of a creation that does not deny its craftsmanship, balance or style.

The Highlife Gents Automatic COSC in a 41 mm case comes with a COSC chronometer certificate. This limited edition also presents itself with the characteristic feature of Highlife timepieces, the true distinguishing feature of Highlife timepieces: a steel bracelet integrated into the case, which can be interchanged at will with a chocolate brown rubber strap for a different look, in seconds using the quick-change system – the secret of a timeless watch that always perfectly matches the mood of the moment.

About Frederique Constant

Frederique Constant is a Swiss watchmaking manufacture located in Geneva, Switzerland. The Maison was founded in 1988 by a couple of independent entrepreneurs, Aletta and Peter Stas, to offer quality Swiss watches at an affordable price, with the aim of democratising luxury Swiss Made watches.

Frederique Constant creates, develops, assembles and controls a wide variety of mechanical, quartz and connected timepieces at the same time within its 6,200 m2 Manufacture in Plan- les-Ouates (GE). To this day, Frederique Constant has designed 30 Manufacture calibres, including high complications, such as the Tourbillon, the Perpetual Calendar, the Flyback Chronograph, as well as a new and unprecedented type of escapement in watchmaking – the Monolithic. Made from a single piece of silicone, replacing the 26 components of a standard assortment, it oscillates at a frequency of 40 Hz, which is 10 times that of most mechanical movements.

In 2015, Frederique Constant launched the Horological Smartwatch, the first Swiss Made connected timepiece featuring a traditional appearance. In 2018, the Classic Hybrid Manufacture succeeded it, combining a mechanical Manufacture movement with connected features. It was followed by the Smartwatch Vitality line in 2020, equipped with a new generation built-in heart rate sensor.

The same year, Frederique Constant reinvigorated the Highlife collection (1999) with a redesigned case and an interchangeable integrated strap. This was followed in 2021 by the Slimline Monolithic Manufacture with its very high-frequency one-piece escapement, then by the Highlife collection for women.

Frederique Constant is currently present in nearly 3,000 points of sale in 120 countries across the world. In 2016, the Frederique Constant group (Frederique Constant, Alpina Watches, Ateliers deMonaco) joined the Japanese group Citizen, so as to pursue its international development and nurture new synergies.
