Frederique Constant Brand

The Frederique Constant brand first emerged in 1904 in Switzerland. Founders Constant Stas and Frederique Schreiner specialized in the production of classic wristwatches, but the business was not profitable and activities were postponed indefinitely.

Later, in 1988, under the leadership of the heirs (married couple Pierre and Aletta Bax), the firm changed direction: the main task of the spouses was to produce beautiful, but affordable mechanical watches.

From that moment the success story began. Watches are now assembled in the commune of Plan-les-Ouates, Switzerland. Read more about the history and formation of the company here.
