In the market for a quintessential dress watch? One capable of displaying the current phase of the moon to stunning effect? This is the Frédérique Constant Slimline Manufacture Moonphase and it is simply gorgeous.
In an industry where some of their associates have a history numbered in hundreds of years, Aletta and Peter Stas continue to grow the company they founded in 1988 building their brand’s reputation on the fundamentals of quality control and attention to detail. Their portfolio is composed of classically styled timepieces which are hand-assembled, presented in hand-polished cases and which represent some of the best value for money to be had in the business.
The new Slimline Moonphase Manufacture will be available in dial and case options to suit all but the most contrary of customers - stainless steel case with the choice of rose gold plating, and blue, chocolate or silver dial editions.
Inside is the decorated Frédérique Constant automatic Calibre FC-705 with power reserve of 42 hours featuring personalised rotor viewable through rear sapphire.
This model is aesthetically perfect - domed dial, curved crystal, eyelash-slim hands and applied markers and a particularly resplendent moonphase which combines with a pointer date display. Notable is the elegantly knurled crown which also enables moonphase setting, so that pristinely polished and trim case remains as clutter-free as is possible.
