Swiss luxury watch brand, Frederique Constant, recently launched its first smartwatch special edition 3.0 Hybrid Manufacture. The first of its kind, the hybrid smartwatch is a revolutionary timepiece that fuses tech with a mechanical manufacture-made movement.

The launch, organised by distributor C Thong Panich, was held at the new Escape Bangkok shop in EmQuartier and attended by actress Virithipa “Woonsen” Phakdeeprasong, who spoke about her favourite watch. She was joined by William Bess, the brand’s international sales director, Vipawan Mahadumrongkul, managing director of C Thong Panich, Voralak Tulaphorn, chief marketing officer of The Mall Group, as well as Kerika Chotivichit, Nondh Amranand, ML Rangsithorn Bhanubandh, and Nattakorn Choonhavan.

Frederique Constant’s 3.0 Hybrid Manufacture combines three technological advances, among them the FC-750 Hybrid Manufacture Hybrid calibre, which enables the smart functions. The watch updates the activities of the wearer, including their daily steps, daily calories burnt, and sleeping patterns. The wearer of this hybrid smartwatch can also set goals for their sleeping hours. The analysis function has an algorithm that tests the accuracy of the watch’s calibre, resulting in a graph that is shown on the mobile application.

The smartwatch special model, 3.0 Hybrid Manufacture is available in silver for Bt126,000 and rose gold for Bt138,000. M Card members are entitled to a discount.
