Yet Another Affordable Version of One of Our Favorite Mechanical Complications

A classically styled take on the traveler’s watch.

Lately, we’ve seen a swath of new affordable GMT watches. While most of those have come from smaller brands, Swiss watchmaking powerhouse Frederique Constant, known for its accessibly-priced complications, has just unveiled another: The Frederique Constant Classics Automatic GMT. And while recent affordable GMTs have generally slanted more towards vintage-inspired tool watch design, the Frederique Constant is more classically styled, as the name suggests.

Two versions are available: A stainless steel version and a gold-plated version. Both come in at 42mm in diameter, and both feature silver dials with Roman numerals and textured guilloche patterning. The watch is powered by an automatic movement from Frederique Constant and will start at only $1,675.
