The perfect marriage of digital and analogue

Digital watches may be intended to free up your phone’s burden, but we don’t agree that anything should take away from a watch’s real intention, especially in the case of a luxury watch. Unlike a typical digital smartwatch that you can spot from far away, the Frederique Constant Hybrid Manufacture stands out for the timepiece that it is. You gotta dig deeper as the marriage of analogue looks and the smartness beneath the surface is a strong one. This one speaks the language of functionality, as much as it does speak of Swiss mechanical luxury. A distinctly classy watch, the Frederique Constant Hybrid Manufacture hides the FC-750 caliber beneath its surface. The analogue takes the form of a legit fitness tracker and connects you to the Hybrid Manufacture App at the push of a button, located at the left of the watch case. It’s a simple process, really. What you get in hand is a highly precision-driven finished product that houses the analogue and electronic parts of the caliber, bridged seamlessly by the Hybrid Manufacture App. The price starts at 2,27,332 and can be ordered at the Ethos Watch Boutiques.
