Since its inception in 1988, the brand has been recognized as a quality manufacturer of well designed timepieces, and one of great value with reasonable pricing. The new Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Manufacture is an excellent example of this excellence.
The moon-phase indication, which is designed with a identical image of the moon utilizes a new technology called laser ablation. Offering a single-crown adjustment system the timepiece allows for setting the time, date, and moon-phase. The first position features the crown winding the watch, the second is where the date and moon-phase are set, and the third position is where the time is adjusted for hour and minutes.
The three-part case is 42mm in diameter, features a convex sapphire crystal in the front and a sapphire window in the back, allowing you to view the movement of the Caliber FC-705. The brilliant movement is 26 jewels with a 42 hour power reserve and features Perlage and Circular Côtes de Genève decoration. Available in five select versions: stainless steel with a silver dial and black alligator strap or navy dial and matching alligator strap, a rose gold case with silver dial and brown alligator strap, and then two in solid 18k rose gold, one with a silver dial and the other with a chocolate brown.
The timepieces feature hand-applied nickel indices and polished nickel hands, or gold plated hands and indices and are displayed in a custom designed wooden gift box. The Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Manufacture incorporates an elegant design that transcends time with such beauty that will never go out of style. Stirring passion and deep emotions, the moon is an inspirational sign that is captured effortlessly in this watch.
Certainly the features on the timepiece are remarkable, but the complication of the watch is pure genius and one of the top sellers for the brand in their designs. The introduction of the Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Manufacture is definitely a welcome addition to the brand collections and will continue to fuel clients to desire the brand worldwide.
Elegant and exquisite, the timepiece will draw as much attention as the moon itself. Sitting high in the sky, or simply adorning your wrist, the moon is a light that shines as brightly on the face of this watch as the original version that shines from the sky.
