The 1920s were a time of leisurely gentlemen’s sports and chief among these was runabout racing. Runabouts are sleek, wooden boats built for speed and power. To celebrate the timeless beauty of these masterpieces Frederique Constant introduced the Runabout collection, with each watch being designed with an easy, casual elegance matching that of a runabout.
The Runabout collection from Frederique Constant comprises elegant timepieces including automatic, chronograph and moonphase watches. Each timepiece in this collection is equipped with a crococalf strap with exquisite finishing. The silver coloured dial of each of these watches comes with applied Arabic indexes. Further enhancing the elegance of the design are the Guilloche patterns on the dial. The convex sapphire lens of these watches provides great resistance to scratches and external wear and tear.
Over the years, Frederique Constant has been associated with numerous charitable foundations, donating parts of its profits from different collections to organisations like International Children’s Heart Foundation, American Heart Association and many more. The Runabout Moonphase Riva Historical Society Limited Edition Collection launched in co-operation with Riva Historical Society too is one such endeavour. The Riva Historical Society works towards locating and preserving the runabout boats manufactured by Carlo Riva and this limited edition collection was launched with an aim to creat awareness and funds for the project. The company has been supporting and sponsoring several runabout boating events including the Helice Classique Geneve and the Lake Tahoe Concours D’Elegance in recent years.
