Frederique Constant was established in its current form in 1988 by Aletta Bax and Peter Stas. The brand is involved in all the stages of watch production, from initial design to final assembly. Strong emphasis is placed on watch design to keep abreast of trends and customer preferences.
Frederique Constant’s mission is not to restrict the interest in their brand to a limited and elitist circle of connoisseurs but rather to a broader selection of appreciative enthusiasts who want to enjoy high quality classical watches at sensible prices.
Frederique Constant was founded by Dutch entrepreneurs Peter Stas and Aletta Stas-Bax.
The brand’s first watches launched — a collection of six models with outsourced Swiss movements.
The Heart Beat model launches as one of the brand’s signature models
The brand acquires Alpina Watches.
The Heart Beat calibre FC 910 launched as the first in-house movement, establishing the company as a vertically integrated manufacture.
The brand became a subsidiary of Citizen Watch Company after being acquired, along with Alpina and DeMonaco.
The brand launches a Fratello-exclusive Moonphase watch, limited to just 29 pieces. It is available now in the Fratello Shop.
