Frédérique Constant is numbered among today’s leading Geneva watchmakers. This private family company has achieved this esteemed position through a brilliantly planned and well-executed programme of expansion since the launch of its first products in 1991.
Frédérique Constant was founded in 1988 by Peter Stas and his wife Aletta in Geneva, with a clear objective to create what became known as ‘accessible luxury’ watches. By offering excellent quality watches with affordable prices Frédérique Constant has gradually become an important player within the Swiss watchmaking industry.
Still independent and family-owned, Frédérique Constant’s ultra-modern watch manufacture is now based in Plan-les-Ouates, Geneva, reaching a production of 128,000 timepieces last year. Frédérique Constant watches are defined by their high quality, differentiation and precision in design and manufacture. Each watch is assembled by hand and extensively controlled with the latest equipment to ensure maximum quality. Since 2004, Frédérique Constant has counted itself amongst the few true ‘manufactures’ of Switzerland.
The company’s slogan ‘Live your Passion’ symbolises Peter and Aletta’s original philosophy, also present in their support of important charities and sponsorship of prestigious events.
