In 2009, Frederique Constant began a longstanding partnership with the Riva Historical Society. This non-profit organization was founded by the architect Piero Maria Gibellini along with the engineer Carlo Riva and a group of friends with the main purpose of preserving still-existing Riva boats. The goal of this charitable group is to help the owners conserve these vessels in the best possible way.
Since the beginning of its partnership with the Riva Historical Society, Frederique Constant annually promotes and commemorates the runabout boats with a nautical-inspired limited edition watch.
The case is offered in stainless steel or steel rose gold PVD. 43mm diameter case sports a sapphire crystal on the front side and a sapphire display back with the flag of the Riva Historical Society etched unto it. The WR rating is 30 meters.
The timepiece features the in-house Swiss automatic Frederique Constant Caliber FC-303. 25 jewels movement beats at 28,800vph and offers a power reserve of 42 hours when fully wound.
The dial has two color options as silver or brown. Both dials sport guilloche pattern in the center accompanied with Arabic numeral markers, and luminous hands and indices.
The watch comes on a black or brown leather strap with a steel or steel rose gold PVD buckle.
It is delivered with a gift box that offers a miniature wooden powerboat that pays homage to the design of the 1920s.
