Frederique Constant Flyback Chronograph Manufacture Automatic (Blue Dial / 42mm)
The Flyback Chronograph Manufacture is a one-of-a-kind accessory. This stainless steel model was conceived and perfected over 6 year in the manufacture. The patented star-shaped wheel permits a uniquely smooth operation of the mechanism. This series can be stopped, reset to zero and restarted with the push of one button.
Developed in-house from scratch over a six year period, manufactured components in-house, and finally assembled the caliber in-house, the Frederique Constant FLYBACK CHRONOGRAPH MANUFACTURE is a marvel. Most important however is that Frederique Constant offers its watches with this in-house Flyback Chronograph Manufacture Caliber. This FC-760 complication is inspired by 1930’s Flyback Chronographs and a desire to go beyond a regular chronograph construction. Whereas the regular chronograph function is used as a stopwatch to measure time during a specific elapsed interval, with a Flyback, a user is able to operate the chronograph without resetting it to zero every time. With the flyback, the chronograph’s hand can be stopped, reset to zero, and restarted with one push of a button. This function is essential for timing an elapsed interval of events during races. n unmistakable characteristic of high-quality chronographs is a column wheel rotating on bearings to control the three “start, stop and reset” functions. In conventional mechanisms, this component has several columns. In contrast, the caliber FC-760 has no standard-type column wheel, but a STAR-SHAPED one. Together with the operating lever, which is controlled by the start/stop push-piece, this component is responsible for the exceptionally smooth operation of the mechanism.
