Frederique Constant Announce Gwyneth Paltrow as Their New Ambassador
Wednesday - 20 July 2016
If you were following our Baselworld 2016 updates, you are bound to remember when Frederique Constant launched their new global charity ambassador as the oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow. The beautiful blonde was chosen for her natural and classic look that is represented in the designs by Frederique Constant as well as their shared involvement in charity work. The collaboration supports DonorsChoose with an international charity advertising campaign where Gwyneth wears the Classic Delight Automatic timepiece. To raise money for the charity the Swiss watchmaker will donate 50 dollars of the sale price to DonorsChoose association.
Two stunning new editions have been added to the exquisite Classics Delight collection; special models that will contribute to helping others build a better life. The feminine, elegant instrument echoes the actresses natural presence. Gwyneth’s sophistication is reflected in the Classics Delight Collection with the subtle and discreet dial. The watch face embraces two rose gold plated slender hands that compliment the Roman numeral indexes, beautiful case, delicate gem-set crown and elegant bracelet stripe; alternatively opt for the stainless steel edition for a different yet equally as elegant design. The inner circle on the dial features a white guilloche pattern surrounded by a mother of pearl outer-ring for a luxurious touch. In between the Roman numerals, the dial welcomes diamond markers to add an element of grandeur to the watch. With a slim 33mm diameter case the feminine timepiece fits to the wrist effortlessly. The noble watch is off exceptional quality hosting the FC-306 caliber that tracks the hours, minutes and date and boasts a 42-hour power reserve.
The Classic Delight collection has definitely earned the approval of Gwyneth Paltrow. Frederick Constant caught up with the actress to find out her thoughts on her favourite watch and why she is passionate about her new role.
“Difficult to answer (in response to- which Frederique Constant watch is your favorite one?), because I like a lot! But my favourites are the Manufacture Slimline Moonphase for Ladies and the new Delight Automatic models.”
“The reason I was so drawn to work with Frederique Constant not only because they are a family owned company, making beautiful and reliable watches at a surprising price points, but that there is a deep sense of giving back.”
