If you’re reading this article at the time it was published, then we’re a day removed from spending time with family, stuffing our faces, and being thankful as we celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States. So you know what that means, right? Today is the shopping marathon that brings out the little crazy in us all known as Black Friday. Frederique Constant has most certainly gotten the memo, as they celebrate the shopping holiday quite literally, with an all-black Classics Worldtimer Manufacture. The new release sports a titanium coated case in a stealthy colorway, making their refined travel watch more tool-ish than precious and visually, under the radar.
In the regular production models of the Classics Worldtimer Manufacture, we’ve largely seen stainless steel cases aside from the 18k rose gold case of the FC-718NWWM4H9. The Classics Worldtimer Manufacture Globetrotter LE (let’s go with CWMG for short) still uses a three-part stainless steel case, but has a titanium PVD coating providing a shield against inevitable scratches and the stealth aesthetic. The case maintains the same Classics Worldtimer Manufacture form; a 42mm case width, 12.1mm case thickness and a water resistance rating of 5 atm.
