Welcome to the good life with Frederique Constant's Highlife

After 20 years, Frederique Constant brings back its iconic Highlife collection with two new models; Highlife Heart Beat and Highlife Automatic COSC.

The year was 1999 when Swiss watch manufacturer Frederique Constant unveiled the first models of its Highlight collection. Set with a unique design that featured a special strap system that was built into the case, the release of the Highlife watch not only impacted the world of watches but also the brand itself.

Almost 20 years later, Frederique Constant brings us an upgraded version of the Highlife collection with two models; Highlife Heart Beat and Highlife Automatic COSC. Like the original timepieces, these new versions of the Highlife collection feature fundamental characteristics of being immaculately designed, affordable, Swiss Made and engineered for everyday use.

These new models come in a 41mm case and present an elegant and sport-chic appearance dedicated to the next generation of collectors. Both the models not only feature a new case structure but also an integrated interchangeable bracelet. From a steel bracelet, a leather, crococalf suede, or rubber strap, the Highlife can be restyled in seconds. Another important aspect of the new watches is the presence of a globe motif on the dials of all the watches. This motif symbolises Earth and the brand's commitment to saving the planet, sustainability, and sensible living.

Highlife Hear Beat:

Like the Heart Beat timepiece that was released over 25 years ago, the new Frederique Constant Highlife Heart Beat revisits this iconic design with modern aesthetics. It retains the discreet aperture at 12 o'clock wherein the wearer gets an exclusive view of the workings of the automatic FC-310 caliber movement within. The Highlife Heart Beat and its signature aperture on the dial is set with three luminescent hands.

The Highlife Heart Beat is available in three different versions; a white dial and rose gold-plated case with a brown leather strap (complemented by a brown rubber strap), the second features a blue dial with a steel bracelet (complemented by a blue rubber strap) and the last features a black dial with a steel case and bracelet (complemented by a black rubber strap).

Highlife Automatic COSC 

Dedicated to chronometric purists, the second edition of the recent Highlife collection is the Automatic COSC timepiece and like the name suggests, it is COSC certified. In regard to the overall design of the watch, the Highlife Automatic COSC brings together the three sleek hands of the Heart Beat and the date from the Perpetual Calendar Manufacture and combines it in an elegant manner. The new model is available in two-tone, steel/blue dial and black leather/white dial versions along with a variation with a rose gold-plated case and a black dial mounted on a brown leather strap, complete with a rubber strap in the same shade. The Highlife Automatic COSC  is powered by the FC-310 caliber that vibrates at 28,800 vph.
