Deconstruction Frederique Constant

Post by koimaster » May 1st 2020, 5:48pm

The Reason

A simplified perpetual calendar retaining classical elements in an industrial execution, whilst assuring a solid construction built for longevity.
Introduction/functions

The FC-775 calibre was developed by Manuel Da Silva Matos, R&D director, and Pim Koeslag, technical director of Frederique Constant, over a three year period and was launched in 2016.

It displays hours, minutes, moon-phases, date, day, month and leap year. Once programmed the mechanism will take into account the months with 30 and 31 days, the 28 days of February and also the leap year cycle with the return of 29 February every four years.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
