While a relatively new brand, founded in 1988, the accessible pricing, in-house mechanical movement and overall aesthetics of the timepieces have made it popular and valued. The new movement that was added to the manufacturing this year has now provided a higher reputation and a timepiece aficionados are giving the highest accolades. Frederique Constant Moontimer is an amazing addition to their repertoire.
The timepiece features a single-crown adjustment system that sets time, date, and moon-phase. The crown winds the watch in the first position, and then second position sets the date if turned clockwise, and moon-phase counter-clockwise. The third position allows for adjusting the time on the hour and minute hands. The special phase indication uses a very detailed and precise image of the orb, created by a spectacular new technology known as laser ablation.
