Perfectly in line with the performance of Austin Healey automobiles, Frederique Constant launches each year limited “Vintage Rally” timepieces inspired by the Manufacture’s passion for racing. This collaboration celebrates the long-term partnership of fourteen years of two prestigious brands, where craftsmanship and high-precision are at the heart of their common values.
Since 2004, Frederique Constant has been sponsoring vintage car rallies worldwide. Often being the official timekeeper for world renowned events celebrating classic automobiles. Frederique Constant is pleased to be able to support the European Healey Club again in 2018 as the official Gold-Sponsor for their 5th European Healey Meeting held in the Black Forest in Germany, a diversified area for driving or racing. The participants of the EHM 2018 event will discover a presentation of the collection during a gala event.
Each of the three new model versions picks up the DNA from the iconic design of the 1960s Bristish automobiles, paying tribute to their classic design. Featured with a 42mm in diameter stainless steel or in rose gold plated, it provides enough space for readability. The use of stainless steel delivers outstanding results in terms of weight and resistance. The convex sapphire crystal over the dial resist to shocks and scratches, which makes it an ideal material subjected to the stresses of racing. It’s water resistant up to 50 meters and makes it an ideal pairing for the outdoors environment.
