Today I will be flying to Geneva to learn how to make a watch and one of you will be joining me. If you recall back in December 2012 our monthly giveaway was for either a Frederique Constant (or Alpina) watch, or the chance to travel to Geneva and build your own watch and take it home with you.

While at Baselworld 2012, I had an interesting idea. It wasn’t totally unique, and I certainly didn’t come up with it originally. I did however stumble upon a solution for a huge problem with the watch industry and a great way to solve it. Something that to my knowledge isn’t really being done with any [...]
Frederique Constant’s newest watch with an in-house made movement is both useful and attractive.

Making for a good traveler’s watch, the [...]

Frederique Constant has something to be proud about. At the very least it should be something that is exiting to fine watch consumers. While not the only company to offer relatively low cost in-house made movements, their new Maxine Manufacture Collection watches are beautifully made and feature a totally in-house made Swiss movement for under 2000 [...]
