For people who understand what pleasures can exist with a fine watch, there can be nothing more exciting than a fine piece that is getting excellent reviews and which is also relatively affordable. If you are searching for fine timepieces, such as the Swiss Frederique Constant watches, you should know from the start that you will be talking in the 30-100 thousand dollar range. In other words, purchasing this kind of watch should be seen as an investment. You want to make sure that you are getting the style you are attracted to, as well as functionality that fits your needs and expectations. It's okay if making a final decision takes you a little bit of time.
If you are interested in the male line of Frederique Constant watches known as the Slimline Tourbillon, then you are looking for a man's watch that has a few classic elements to it. On the one hand, you are going to have a thin watch that is incredibly understated and which might even have a hint of the archaic about it, but not in a way that suggests a dated timepiece. On the contrary, with a Frederique Constant watch such as the Slimline, you are getting a piece that is similar to some of the more common watches from the 1950s. As a matter of fact, you can be sure that you are getting a watch that would be one of the finest from any time in history.
One reason why so many watch writers became excited about the new model from Frederique Constant is that its price is relatively low. When Frederique Constant came out with a ladies' line recently, people were not surprised to end up paying over 60 grand for these watches. What's nice about the new Tourbillon watches is that they are normally under 40,000 dollars and can be purchased only from some very well respected vendors. A small number of these classic watches have been produced, meaning that it is the kind of piece you will want to make your purchase immediately.
That being said, the reviews are in, and people are raving about the Frederique Constant Slimline Tourbillon. As a matter of fact, there have already been a number of blog columns written about the affordability and usability of these uniquely beautiful timepieces from among the best of the Swiss watchmakers of the 20th century and beyond.
