Introducing the Frédérique Constant Runabout

A Runabout is a motorboat which was first made in the 1920s. It’s also the name of a watch collection by Frédérique Constant which was born of a 2009 partnership with the Riva Historical Society to protect Riva boats. This year, two new limited edition Runabouts (2888 of each available) have sealed their bond.

The self-winding FC-303 calibre fuels the hours, minutes, seconds, date and 38-hour power reserve. The 43mm case comes in steel or rose gold-plated steel.

A central engine-turned disc bears the spear-shape hands and central seconds hand in bronze or gunmetal gliding over the luminescent Arabic numerals and hour markers.

Price: 1350 CHF (steel) – 1650 CHF (rose gold-plated steel)
