Classic cars and mechanical watches have always been a match made in heaven, because they are masterpieces that combine reliability, precision and sophisticated elements. Just like the automotive mechanics who designed the British sports car Austin Healey, Frederique Constant watchmaker has the same passion for immortality and perfection, and launched the new vintage racing vintage Vintage Rally series Austin Healey limited edition watch.
The classic antique sports car Austin Healey is the source of inspiration for Frederique Constant’s new Vintage Rally collection of Austin Healey watches.
Passion has always been the main DNA of Frederique Constant, and at the same time encourage everyone to live their passion, which is one of the reasons for Frederick Constantin’s long-term cooperation with the passionate Austin Healey sports car brand in the past 12 years. In this cooperation, Frederique Constant also invited 80 antique racing enthusiasts from the Austin Healey Sports Club of France to a watch factory in the Plan-les-Ouates district of Switzerland.
The eye-catching color ring on the watch face is taken from the steering wheel inside the Austin Healey sports car.
The new watch design is inspired by the classic antique sports car, with a 40mm stainless steel or rose gold case. The three watch dials are each equipped with a distinctive color ring that symbolizes the steering wheel. The Arabic numerals and hour and minute hands are coated with Superluminova, which is legible even in the darkest nights. The dial has a date window at 3 o’clock, and the Austin Healey trademark is marked at 6 o’clock.
