We proudly present the first Daily Watch! Six months ago, Kristian Haagen and Nick Meijer started their journey to create a chronograph that is Pure and Precise. No fuzz, no gimmicks, just focus on the essentials. In Frederique Constant we found a partner that made our ideas into reality, and the result is available now: the Frederique Constant Flyback Chronograph “DailyWatch”!

FLYBACK CHRONOGRAPH MOVEMENT: IN-HOUSE PRODUCTION AND CLEVER ENGINEERING

The FC-760 chronograph calibre from Frederique Constant is simpler, smoother and more reliable than conventional flyback systems. The conventional flyback mechanism is based on a set of several column wheels that act as a system of clutches. 

The FC-760 calibre that operates the Flyback Chronograph Manufacture dispenses with this complexity, replacing the standard column wheel with a star-shaped wheel. This results in a thinner movement with fewer parts and operations. Frederique Constant developed this in-house to ensure the best quality and performance. 

Pressing the pusher at 4 o’clock declutches the chronograph’s movement and resets it. Once you release the pusher, the movement and the chronograph re-engage and the chronograph restarts. 

No fewer than 6 years of development were required to attain this degree of sophistication. The flyback module accounts for just 96 of the entire movement’s 233 parts, making it one of the most efficient flyback modules in the world, as well as one of the most affordable, thanks to its ingenious, patented construction. The FC-760 calibre can be admired through the sapphire crystal case back and will attract the admirer of fine watches.
