10 years of the Heart Beat Manufacture movement
Following the success of the first Heart Beat Manufacture caliber in 2004, Frédérique Constant made a point of broadening the Manufacture range each year. Whereas the 6 o’clock opening on the dial remains the trademark design, the Heart Beat movement is still continuously amended, corrected and improved.
In 2014, to celebrate the ten years of this movement, Frédérique Constant presented the Heart Beat FC-945 Silicium movement comprising 126 components optimised in terms of reliability, durability and technical excellence. Entirely developed in-house, the movement features several unique characteristics including its escapement wheel, lever and silicon roller. The lightness of this wheel in addition to the decrease of friction vastly improves the energy efficiency.
