Frederique Constant combines Swiss advanced mechanical watchmaking with smart watch functions to launch the new Hybrid Manufacture mechanical smartwatch with its own movement. Peter Stas, President of Frederique Constant Group, said: ‘In 2015 Frederique Constant became one of the first Swiss watchmakers to launch smartwatches, and today the brand pioneers the fusion of home-made mechanical movements and smartwatch functions.’
The FC-750 Hybrid movement is entirely developed, produced and assembled by Frederique Constant, and patented, integrating electronic components and providing intelligent functions. To integrate these two technologies into a unique movement, we need to face the technical challenge of preventing magnetic interference between machinery and electronics. Therefore, Frederique Constant independently developed a patented anti-magnetic inner casing.
This movement is equipped with Caliber Analytics. Every day at 4:00 AM, it will actively analyze the movement’s speed, amplitude and run-out error, and the analysis results will be transmitted to the Hybrid App via Bluetooth and displayed in graphical form. The bottom of the App page will display the measurement summary of the movement: green means that it is working well, red means that it needs to be checked. If the mechanical movement encounters a failure, the brand will notify the customer through the App and Cloud.
