The calibre FC-718 is an automatic worldtimer movement from Frederique Constant.

Calibre FC-718 was introduced in 2013, adding a worldtimer disc to the existing central seconds FC-710 movement. These movements are based on the 2009 "Maxime Manufacture" FC-700, which was Frederique Constant's second in-house manufacture movement after the original FC-910.

The FC-718 is very similar to the FC-710 and is a simple and classic movement. Running at 28,800 A/h, the 26 jewel movement has central sweep hour, minute, and seconds hands and a date subdial at 6:00. It features an outer worldtimer disc which is operated by the crown like a simple GMT watch.

The same movement is used by sister company Alpina as their AL-718.
