About our Collaboration
From the very beginning, it has always been clear to us that Frederique Constant and About Vintage’s visions align beautifully; creating spectacular and elegant timepieces for the everyday gent and woman.
Having already collaborated with the Swiss watch brand on two occasions in the past for the captivating 1988 Moonphase and the latest 1988 Flyback Chronograph. Naturally, we felt right at home partnering for another special collaboration. The watch contains the in-house clockwork from Frederique Constant; FC-760 Manufacture Caliber which makes it the ideal choice for any watch connoisseur, wishing to carry an utmost special timepiece.
About the design
The 1988 Flyback Chronograph Blue Edition is an ode to the classics as it is a redesign of the iconic Flyback Chronograph from Frederique Constant.
During the process of redesign, we were constantly reminded of why we began our journey of watch making - to capture special moments at the hand of quality timepieces. As the design itself is a combination of trademark Frederique Constant elements, as well as the key elements of our own design, it boasts timelessness and Scandinavian minimalism.
While sharing central characteristics with our previous 1988 Flyback Chronograph, this timepiece differentiates itself with a mesmerizing deep blue matte dial and three sunray sub-dials - serving as a renewal of an exclusive and a sought after design.
