FREDERIQUE CONSTANT

COMPANY PROFILE
Most of the world's best known watch manufacturers are based in Genève . Cross-fertilization between companies as well as co-operation with suppliers enable independent manufacturers to remain at the forefront of precision watch making. Watchmakers are the most important assets of a watch manufacturer, since each watch is individually assembled by hand. Watch making schools in Genève and La Chaux-de-Fonds have educated
most of the watchmakers at Frédérique Constant. Many of them gained experience in the ateliers of renowned brands before joining Frédérique Constant. Yet pure capabilities alone are only part of the equation; to be successful, a watchmaker at Frédérique Constant must be truly passionate about his or her work.

The name 'Frédérique Constant' has been created from two names:
Frederique: Frederique Schreiner, 1881-1969
Constant: Constant Stas, 1880-1967

The current Managing Director of Frédérique Constant S.A., Peter Stas, is a 4th generation descendant of Mr. Constant Stas, who founded his company in 1904, making printed clock dials for the watch industry.

COMPANY PROFILE
Frédérique Constant was established in its current form in 1988. Aletta Bax and Peter Stas launched their first collection in 1992, comprising six models fitted with Swiss movements and assembled by a watchmaker in Geneva. Frédérique Constant is involved in all the stages of watch production, from initial design to final assembly.

Watches manufactured under its trademark are either designed by Frédérique Constant or by independent designers contracted for a specific series of models. Strong emphasis is placed on watch design to keep abreast of trends and customer preferences. Frédérique Constant uses cutting-edge computer software, principally computer aided design software, to assist in the watch design and development process.

Our mission is not to restrict the interest in Frédérique Constant watches to a limited and elitist circle of connoisseurs but rather to a broader selection of appreciative enthusiasts who want to enjoy high quality classical watches at sensible prices.

Frédérique Constant has exhibited at the World Watch, Clock and Jewellery Show in Basel since 1995. As the company flourished, Aletta Bax and Peter Stas decided to move to Geneva themselves, to develop the brand in the heart of this watchmaking capital.

In 2000, Frédérique Constant opened a new workshop in Chene-Bourg, an attractive commune within the city of Geneva, criss-crossed by narrow, busy streets and very popular with artists.

In 2006, the company moved to a brandnew building in Plan-les-Ouates. The new Frédérique Constant manufacture measures 3200 square meters, divided over four floors, offering an attractive working environment in the sectors of movement component production, calibre assembly, watch assembly, and extensive quality control. Numerically-controlled machines of the latest generation are located in a large atelier in the basement, where all component manufacturing is concentrated. Calibre and watch assembly, as well as state-of-the-art quality control is primarily organized on the first loor of the new Frédérique Constant building. The building is also the brand'sinternational
headquarters.

During the past 12 years, Frédérique Constant has grown consistently with 25-30% per year. In 2008, the company aims to produce and sell over 90'000 pieces. With its slogan ‘Live your passion', Frédérique Constant will continue with the passionate development and production of exciting new collections. Current plans give the company strong confidence that sustained growth will continue in the future.
