Frederique Constant Runabout Watches
Another release on the cooperation of Frederique Constant manufactory with the Geneva Society of Riva Historical Society, engaged in the restoration of the classic Ranbauty Motors, will delight all fans of respectable and functional classics. As in the same vintage boats, there is nothing superfluous in these hours.
Ranbout is a flat-bottomed engine boat designed to achieve maximum speed on a smooth lake surface. It is not surprising that the popularity of these vessels originated in the age of motors, in the 1920s, and bloomed in Geneva, stretching on the shores of the picturesque lake Lehman. Classic Ranbauts of that time were made of wood with chrome-plated or brilliant bronze elements and became an integral part of the Geneva landscape. Residents of the city, to which the head of Frederique Constant Peter Stas, still love their vintage wooden boats, support them in perfect condition, to bring them out in the season.
One of the largest Society Riva Historical Society is one of the largest saving societies, and since 2009, Frederique Constant has concluded a long-term partnership with this non-commercial organization. The most pleasant part of the cooperation is the releases of the Runabout series, standing by a mansion from the main collection of the brand. They are clearly echoing with the style of the secular society “roaring twentieth”.
As, for example, two fresh replenishments of the series in the housing of 43 mm made of steel or with a gold coated, supplemented with a silver or a noble chocolate dial with a textured guilloche. Inside the automatic manufactory of FC-303 automatic manufactory, and through the sapphire window on the back cover, you can see the balance of the balance. By tradition, every instance of both limited versions comes in a gift case complete with an accurate miniature copy of the classic Ranbaut.
Peter Stas, General Director of Frederique Constant:
I have my own small motorcycle 1980 Boesch Cabriolet. It is not quite ancient, but manufactured by all the rules of traditional Ranbautov from the tree, and I really like to participate in it in the regatta Riva. I remember this feeling every time when we start working on the new models of Frederique Constant Runabout so that these clocks reflected the very essence of the classic boats.
