Effective today, Citizen Watches Australia will proudly operate Frederique Constant timepieces in Australia and New Zealand.
Frederique Constant is one of the few manufacture’s, involved in all stages of watch production, from initial design, in-house development to final assembly and quality control. The brand produces up to 29 in-house calibers and is planning to expand its production capacity thanks to its new 3’000 square meter manufacture opening on June 2019.
During the transition period, Citizen Watches Australia will work in tandem with Frederique Constant to ensure every aspect of the brand is maintained to the highest standard. All Frederique Constant’s valued retailers will continue to receive exceptional service from Citizen Watches Australia.
Shiori Takahashi, CEO of Citizen Watches Australia, added, “We are proud to be associated with Frederique Constant and represent across Australia. The timing could not have been more apt, especially with the growth of the brand in Australia, in recent years. There is an opportunity to develop a stronger retail network to service existing and potential Frederique Constant customers.”
“We are excited to further develop and leverage synergies with Citizen to address the retail network more efficiently and create value for each stakeholder involved into the commercialization of our beautiful timepieces in Oceania. We are confident that this new association will significantly contribute to our ambitions and will provide Frederique Constant’s customers with the service they rightly expect”, said Sebastien Cretegny, Vice-President of Sales, Frederique Constant
With this integration into the Citizen Watches Australia, the Frederique Constant Brand will greatly benefit from the sales distribution, marketing power, and operational capabilities of the Citizen Group.
Different yet resolutely complementary, 2019 will see Citizen Watches Australia and Frederique Constant write a new chapter in their collaboration.
