Frederique Constant in collaboration with Ace Jewelers from Amsterdam presents a 100-piece limited edition of the Highlife Worldtimer.
In the industry for almost half a century, Ace Jewelers is today a reference in Amsterdam and it is in this sense that this collaboration takes place, whose three-colour scheme (red-white-black) pays homage to the city.
On the outside, the new variant once again wears the 41mm by 12.90mm Tonneau-shaped case, featuring polished and brushed finishes, a smooth bezel, sapphire glass on both sides, a fluted crown that, in addition to allowing you to set the time, also adjusts the date and the rotating ring of 24 cities, and lastly, 100m water resistance.
The matte black dial replaces the usual globe embossed dial, where we can find two rings on the periphery, one with 24 (cities) time zones, which comes with the city of Amsterdam painted in red and which replaces Geneva, and a second bicolour 24-hour ring, half painted in red representing the night hours and the other half in white with the day hours. In the centre applied baton hour markers and pencil hands all filled with Super-LumiNova, at 6 o’clock a sub-dial date pointer with a radial pattern and at noon three red crosses that represent the white crosses of Saint Andrew on the flag of Amsterdam city.
Inside runs the in-house Manufacture FC-718 automatic movement, reaching 28,800 Bph and offering up to 38 hours of power reserve.
In addition to the integrated three-link bracelet, the set offers an extra black rubber strap with red stitching, which can be purchased exclusively at ACE Jewelers for the price of €3,550 (excl. taxes).
