Wei visits Frederique Constant’s manufacture in Plan-les-Ouates, Geneva to speak to Managing Director of the brand, Niels Eggerding, about the limited edition collaboration that is probably the most revolutionary that we have ever done. The Frederique Constant x Revolution Slimline Monolithic Future Past (Salmon) celebrates watchmaking’s past with a form factor reminiscent of 1940s chronometers but also presents its future by incorporating Frederique Constant’s revolutionary regulating organ, a single silicon disc called the Monolithic oscillator.
Wei also meets with Frederique Constant’s high complications watchmaker, Romain Valette as he demonstrates the assembly of the Monolithic into the caliber FC-810 and introduces the laser device developed by the manufacture that measures the accuracy of each movement. The Frederique Constant x Revolution Slimline Monolithic FP(S) is a limited numbered edition of 100 pieces and an incredible value proposition at EUR 4,450 retail.
