Frederique Constant – Classic Index Automatic GMT

A new watches will expand the Frederique Constant’s fleet. Stylish and elegant timepieces with GMT function.

The acronym GMT refers in the watchmaking industry to a second time zone indicator. More precisely its means that the watch has a second hour hand that completes a full rotation in 24 hours. The Classics Index GMT will become the preferred model for travellers and businessmen who need to know the time in two places at the same time.



The dial of the new Classics Index is classical and simple, it has applied indexes and numbers displayed in roman numerals that give the watch an elegant touch of luxury. The Classics Index GMT is available in 4 options. One combines a steel case with an intense black dial on a classical metal bracelet. The stainless steel models, with a silver dial are paired either with a black leather strap or a metal bracelet to match the case. The last distinguishes itself with a rose gold plated case and hand applied rose gold plated indexes, combined with an elegant brown leather strap.

The Classics index GMT provides an alternate time zone reference at a glance. The GMT hand with it’s unmistakable red triangle, makes one rotation every 24-hours and can be used to read off a second time zone on the 24 hour scale placed beneath the hour markers. In addition to the GMT, all the watches feature hours, minutes, seconds and date. These reliable functions adjustable through the single crown are powered by the FC-350 automatic movement, which has a power reserve of 38-hour and 26 jewels. You can observe the precision movement in action through the sapphire crystal case back, which is water resistant to 5 atm. With utmost precision and reliability, the new function of the Classics Index increases it’s appeal and at the same times keeps the original characteristics that made us appreciate this watch at a glance.
