Frederique Constant Ladies Double Heartbeat FC-310CDHB2PD4
One of the factors that has led to Frederique Constant’s success with their ladies’ lines is that their watches for women are designed by women. The signature dial apertures at the 12 position, revealing the ‘Heartbeat’ of the watch is also an instantly recognizable facet of this Swiss manufacturer’s style.
The model featured here, reference # FC-310CDHB2PD4, is sculpted from rose gold ion plated stainless steel and carries dimensions of a mid-sized 34mm for the diameter and 9.9mm for the case height. The stationary bezel is decorated with individually set, full cut (58 facets) diamonds. The diamonds used carry a VS clarity and are Top Wesselton (F-G) in color. The main crown is ridged for the easy setting of the time on this chic timepiece. As with all models in this collection, there is a cabochon cut stone set into the crown adding a measure of sophistication tothis already superbly crafted ladies’ watch.
Not to be left out, the chocolate brown dial is also accented with diamonds used as the hour markers. At the 6 position, there is a singular, oversized Roman numeral which adds balance to the dial, countering the dial aperture at 12. This aperture is ornamented with a guilloche mother of pearl design which contrasts against the brown dial drawing further attention to this complication. The hands are rose gold toned complementing the color scheme of this piece.
Frederique Constant powers this feminine masterpiece with a Swiss made self-winding movement caliber FC-310.

The balance wheel beats at 28,800 VpH and can be seen through the dial aperture. The FC-310CDHB2PD4 has a power reserve of 38 hours when fully wound.
