Flyback Chronograph Manufacture

Frédérique Constant presents an authentic feat with its new Flyback Chronograph Manufacture, retailing for under 4,000 euros. At its heart beats Caliber FC-760, entirely developed and created in-house. Thanks to its flyback function, this chronograph can measure a succession of events, such as during a race, without needing to be reset to zero every time. It is also equipped with a “Direct In-Line” function enabling instantaneous activation of the flyback function, with zero-resetting and launch of a new measurement simply by pressing a pusher at 4 o’clock. Contrary to classic constructions, the chronograph functions are distributed not by a column wheel, but instead by a star-shaped wheel driven by a pusher, thus ensuring particularly smooth operation. Another innovation is a clutch powered by a device based on two toothed pinions. A vivid example of rewriting the rule book on one of the most demanding mechanical complications.
