The perfect accessories of Gentleman drivers.
Frederique Constant has been the official timekeeper of numerous events celebrating classic cars since the beginning of this century, and these treasures have provided recurrent design inspiration to its watchmakers in the contrastingly modern Swiss factory in Plan-les-Ouates Geneva.
This year, Swiss watch manufacturer Frederique Constant announced the company’s continuing partnership with the iconic NOJ393 Healey automobile. As well as participating in the event known as the International Austin Healey Pentecost, which this year was held from June 6th to 9th, near Zurich, Switzerland, Frederique Constant‘s watchmakers have created their own unique blend of passion and precision engineering in the form of the all-new Healey GMT 24H Collection.
Featuring a 42mm diameter case and convex sapphire crystal, each watch also features a refined engraving of the NOJ393 Healey on the case back, together with a round aperture, through which the balance wheel can be seen. The date counter is at the 3 o’clock position, and the unmistakable Healey logo stands at 6 o’clock. The hour and minute hands are with a luminous white finishing, and the dials all feature a guilloche decoration. And as for offering plenty of “horsepower,” each model in the range comes with a 38-hour power reserve and is water resistant to 50 meters (5 ATM).
Two of the new models (the FC-350HVG5B4 and FC-350CH5B4) are presented with a rose gold plated case and hand-applied rose gold plated indexes. The third model (FC-350HS5B6) in this collection comes in polished stainless steel, with a silver dial, hand-applied indexes and a leather racing strap in black with white stitch accents.
Each model in the Healey GMT 24H Collection is produced in a strictly limited edition of 2,888 pieces. Every watch in the range will be delivered in a specially designed gift box and accompanied by a Healey NOJ393 car miniature model.
