Now celebrating its 15th year of partnership with Austin Healey, Plan-les-Ouates based watchmaker Frederique Constant has released its annual new Vintage Rally Healey watch to add to its collection – the Vintage Rally Healey Chronograph Germany (Ref. FC-397HWB5B6).
Presented in a 42mm polished stainless-steel two-part case that is water-resistant to 5m, the sporty looking timepiece showcases an off-white dial with black counters in a panda design. The applied indices and luminous hour and minute hands are created with rose gold. As with previous Vintage Rally Healey editions, the watchmaker’s logo lies at 12 o’clock, while the Healey logo is placed at 6 o’clock. Inspired by British cars from the 60s, the chronograph watch is presented on a vintage beige leather strap and also comes with a black rally sports strap.
The new piece is powered by the FC-397 Automatic Chronograph, which has a 46-hour power reserve and can be observed through the sapphire crystal case back. The outsourced movement operates the displays of hours, minutes and date, as well as the seconds counter at 9 o’clock.
The Vintage Rally Healey Chronograph Germany is presented in a watch box containing a miniature Austin Healey. It is priced at 2,695 euros and is limited to 99 pieces, exclusively available in Germany and the Netherlands.
