Footnotes

  • The 'Heart Beat' was first developed by Frédérique Constant in 1994 to display the mechanical workings of their watches. This move was made as a response to the quartz crisis of the 70s and 80s and was aimed to ensure there was no misunderstanding when it came to the nature of the inner workings of their watches i.e. that they were proudly mechanical and not quartz.
