The Name “Frederique Constant”
Frederique Constant was created from the first names of Peter Stas and Aletta Bax-Stas great-grandparents Frédérique Schreiner (1881-1969) and Constant Stas (1880-1967). The current C.E.O of Frederique Constant Peter Stas is a 4th generation descendant of Mr. Constant Stas, who founded his company in 1904, making printed clock dials for the watch industry.
Frederique Constant has the passion for creating beautiful, high quality watches with impeccable finish. The brand’s slogan is “Live your Passion” and passion is reflected in every detail of the craftsmanship, design and innovation used in the creation of a Frederique Constant watch.
In 1994, Frederique Constant developed its first Heart Beat watch. Heart Beat timepieces have an aperture at the position of the balance wheel showing off the mechanic details which make it, a mechanical timepiece. In 2015, Frederique Constant launched the first Horological Smartwatch featuring an analogical dial run by a completely electronic module. And as time went on; keeping with the Swiss excellence of watchmaking codes, the brand produced watches mixed up with an avant-garde module which tracks the user’s activity and sleep patterns. With this new timepiece Frederique Constant continues to bring high-end watchmaking to a vaster selection of watch aficionados.
