Frederique Constant Worldtimer in Green

Postby koimaster » July 9th 2018, 4:28pm

Blame it on the jackets at The Masters, the omnipresence of Marvel movies featuring The Hulk, or simply a prolonged fondness for St. Patrick’s Day, but it’s time to admit that the color green has become more than just a trend in the watch industry; it’s here to stay. Like its cyan-sibling blue, the emerald hue has evolved from its previous novelty-status and into something that watch brands have realized has greater wrist presence than previously thought.

This year, one of the highlights from Frederique Constant, alongside a line of watches inspired by vintage race cars and a watch that blends horology with technology, is an update to the brand’s Classic Worldtime Manufacture in green.

A reasonable price for what is one of the best looking watches to come up in some time. Wow.

I dislike how the date wheel overlaps the city/world time ring. I think that Orient's done a better job on their world timer dial layouts. Also, Orient charges a quarter of what Freddie Constant does.

Yeah, just different aesthetics. I agree though that its hard to spring for 4K when the Orient looks so good at a fraction of the price.

I like how the date wheel overlaps the city/world time ring. They do a much better job than Orient the hacks. And even at four times the price it's a bargain.
