Looking for a slim flyback chronograph fitted with an in-house movement at a competitive price tag? You come to the right place.
The Frederique Constant Flyback Chronograph Manufacture is the first flyback chronograph by the manufacture to feature a flyback movement fully developed internally over a span of six years. The FC-760 calibre is inspired by 1930s’ flyback chronographs but at the same time going beyond the regular construction of a chronograph. With the flyback function, the chronograph’s hand can be stopped, reset to zero and restarted with one push of a button—perfect for fast-paced actions such as motorsport, in which successive time intervals can be timed.
Unlike a conventional mechanism, the automatic FC-760 contains a patented star-shaped column wheel for a smoother operation of the chronograph functions. All this is made possible by its modular approach towards its assembly. Comprising 233 components in total, 96 of those are dedicated to the flyback module. Furthermore, the calibre boasts a respectable 38 hours of power reserve, housed inside a 42mm case of various stainless steel finishes.
On the dial are the usual 30-minute, date by hand and small second sub-dials associated with a chronograph. Located at two o’clock is the start-stop pusher, while the totaliser and return-to-zero push pieces sit at three and four o’clock respectively.
There are a total of five watches in this collection. All come with transparent casebacks and are water resistant to 50m.
