Swiss watch manufacturer Frederique Constant has introduced a new model to their Classics collection: the Classics Art of Porcelain. Limited to only 188 pieces, this unique watch sets itself apart from others in the collection with its handmade porcelain dial and large black roman numerals.

What speaks louder than its obvious beauty is the craftsmanship involved in creating the sleek porcelain dials. Frederique Constant went with the Zsolnay Porcelain Factory, a company that has been around for over two centuries. Established in 1800 by Miklós Zsolnay in Pécs, Hungary, and later taken over by his son, Vilmos Zsolnay. Vilmos led the factory to worldwide recognition through its innovative products at world fairs and international exhibitions, including the 187 World Fair in Vienna.
