Hybrid Manufacture

The Hybrid Manufacture combines Swiss-made fine mechanical watchmaking with smartwatch functionality in a single watch. The movement is manufactured and the electronic parts are also in-house developed, produced and assembled. Functions include hours, minutes, seconds and date, as well as smartwatch functions, including activity tracking, sleep monitoring, battery life indicator, worldtimer and dynamic coach. In order to overcome the negative magnetic effects between the two technologies integrated into one case, Frederique Constant developed and patented a unique anti-magnetic shield case within the case. The movement also features something called calibre analytics, which measures the rate, amplitude and beat error of the mechanical calibre. It comes in a box that also serves as a rotator and charger, powering two technologies at once. It can also be charged outside the box with a USB cable.
