Frederique Constant Highlife x The Avener: A Tempo!

  • Casual swing and the right drive – that's what it's all about if you want to score points with young target groups today. This approach is not only sought by the two new limited Frederique Constant Highlife x The Avener models, which were launched by Frederique Constant in November 2023 in the context of Dubai Watch Week. The guiding principle of fresh, affordable luxury runs consistently through the Frederique Constant Highlife model line, which was launched around three years ago.

    Early on, Frederique Constant sought to underline this positioning not only with attractive models that were very accessible in terms of their design and pricing. Rather, in order to emphasize this positioning in a clear and audiophile way, they entered into a partnership with the French musician and producer The Avener in 2022.

    Behind the stage name The Avener is Tristan Casara, a French DJ and producer who has made a name for himself nationally and internationally as a house and deep house musician since 2008 and will act as Frederique Constant Testimonial from 2022. Those familiar with the French party scene will certainly know The Avener as the resident DJ of the hip high club in Nice, where he earned his first spurs in the early years.

    Hip clubs and a trendy lifestyle are therefore the environment in which the two new Frederique Constant Highlife x The Avener replica watches uk, which are only 39 millimeters large and 10.3 millimeters high, with their automatic movement, should be in good hands. This is the young environment that has discovered high-quality watches as an indispensable accessory. Especially when these clocks have design elements of a bright, pulsating DJ booth as a direct reference to the musical environment.

    The 2 to 100 meter waterproof watches with brushed or polished stainless steel cases, or with black, matt sandblasted and DLC-coated cases are far from being typical DJ, hip-hop, bling-bling models. Rather, despite all the energy, the dials radiate a recognizable sense of control, structure and elegance thanks to the LED-like vertical pattern in blue and black and the radial pattern in gray and white. A note that should come as no surprise to regular listeners of The Avener. The style-conscious DJ also shines in his compositions and arrangements with a balance of energy and control.

    This is also underlined by the two models Highlife x The Avener with their applied, ground indexes made of steel, whereby the hands and hour markers on the black dial are filled with black luminous material. The same applies to the indices and hands of the blue dial, which are reduced to four indices at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o'clock. A fine minute track on the outer edge of the dial ensures that the time from the automatic 4 Hz movement can be read well and accurately.

    Another smart reference to the DJ and Percent Avener's own style is the note “a tempo” above the date window at 6 o'clock. In music theory, it is the composer's instruction to the musician(s) that after a change in tempo, they should return to the previous tempo.

    The timekeeping of the Frederique Constant Highlife x The Avener is done by the Frederique Constant caliber FC-303 based on the Sellita caliber SW 200-1, clearly visible under a screwed sapphire crystal back. Its rotor gives the watch an energy reserve of up to 38 hours when fully wound. These values will give this detail somewhat limited importance to fans of The Avener. For them, the individual numbering of the best fake watches, each limited to 432 pieces, is probably more important.

    If the number of 432 copies seems strange to you, then it should be noted that the sound level of 432 Hz is viewed by some musicians, alternative healers and people with a more esoteric background as a healing and calming frequency. No evidence of this could be found from science. What this proves, however, is that Tristan Casara definitely not only has a sense of style, but also a good dose of humor.

    The Frederique Constant Highlife comes in the steel version with a steel bracelet, while the matt black DLC coated version is equipped with a black rubber strap and another black nubuck leather strap with a pin buckle.
