Frédérique Constant unveils the new Classics Delight Collection and announces that Oscar®-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow is their Charity Brand Ambassador
When you think of leading Swiss watch brands, Frédérique Constant is more often than not, one of the names that springs to mind. This is a huge achievement when you consider that this company is both independent and family-owned and perhaps even more startling, it has only been with us in its current form since 1988.
Frédérique Constant is a true watch manufacturer through and through. Under the guidance of husband and wife, Peter Stas and Aletta Stas-Bax the team behind the company involves itself with every stage of the production leading up to the finished timepiece. A number of the leading watchmakers look to subcontract some of these processes but this is certainly not the case with Frédérique Constant, from the initial design concept through to the final assembly and quality control the expert watchmakers as the brand oversees it all. Another huge plus point for Frédérique Constant is that they develop, manufacture, and assemble their own in-house calibers. And since 2004, they have created 19 different versions.
Consistent high-quality and innovation year after year is a hallmark of the Frédérique Constant brand and any person who is invited to represent them must also need to share these fine qualities. The company is also an avid supporter of charities and has done this for more than a decade by enabling money from each watch sold within the ladies collections to go to various charities. So with this in mind, there could be few better suited to represent the Swiss watch brand than the Oscar®-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow.
Ms Paltrow undertook the role of the brand’s Charity Brand Ambassador on March 1st, 2016 and given her own huge body of quality work and her world-famous beauty, it would appear to be a perfect match.
There are many occupations that can be attributed to Gwyneth Paltrow, including those of actress, singer, philanthropist and author but perhaps the most rewarding of these is her direct work with charity.
Ms Paltrow’s charitable commitments currently include her role as the Artist Ambassador for Save the Children and her place on the board of the Robin Hood Foundation, a charity set up to alleviate poverty in New York City.
In addition to her work with these fine causes she will be directly supporting the educational projects of the “DonorsChoose” organization. Founded in the year 2000, DonorsChoose.org was set-up to make it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Teachers at 70% of all the public schools in America have created project requests, and more than 2 million people have donated well over $400 million to worthy projects that inspired them. To date, over 17,000,000 students—most from low-income communities, and many in disaster-stricken areas—have received books, art supplies, field trips, technology, and other resources that they need to learn.
If the wonderful news of the collaboration between Frédérique Constant and Gwyneth Paltrow weren’t enough, the Swiss watch manufacturer has also introduced the new Classics Delight Collection of timepieces.
This new collection has been designed with the perfect combination of elegance, form, and slenderness, its irresistible cocktail representing the apex in feminine style. From the expertly-crafted slim case, to the slender hands, everything about this design underlines the Frédérique Constant philosophy of accessible luxury.
Continuing the precedent set by Frédérique Constant, the Delight Automatic Collection will support the charitable causes of the Frédérique Constant Foundation. Each watch sold will result in a contribution of $50 to directly support innovative, impactful and lasting charitable organisations around the world, helping women and children in particular.
Frédérique Constant’s commitment to charitable causes is not only confined to a portion of the proceeds from the sale of watches. In addition to their generous donations and for well over a decade, Frédérique Constant has also engaged in sponsoring leading charitable events, these have included the Global Gift Galas and Variety’s ‘Power of Women’.
By purchasing one of the latest models within the Delight collection, you too can help to foster positive change and enable people to live a meaningful and fulfilling life in a more equitable and safer environment.
