Believed to be the first watchmaker to produce timepieces which show the mechanical heart, Frederique Constant is set to add further credence to the claim with a new edition at Baselworld.

Swiss watchmaker Frederique Constant will launch its new Slimline Auto Heart Beat timepiece. Premiering at Baselworld 2016, the new watch sits between two of the brand's collections: the Slimline collection as well as its Heart Beat signature line.

Being a Slimline timepiece, the new offering has a case that measures a mere 40mm and within that slender frame, it houses another of the maison's trademark: the Heart Beat. First developed in 1994 by Frederique Constant, the window to the mechanical movement quickly grew in popularity and is now one of the mainstays within the industry.

The dial of the Slimline Auto Heart Beat is an exercise in simplicity and elegance, with its clean lines and hour markers. The case, in rose gold or stainless steel is a perfect complement to the dark grey or silver dial. Rounding off the features is the alligator strap, which comes in black or brown.

The Frederique Constant Slimline Auto Heartbeat will be launched at Baselworld 2016, which runs from March 17-24, 2016. Stay connected to Buro 24/7 Middle East for updates.
