Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Manufacture

Frederique Constant equips the Slimline Moonphase timepiece with a brand new Manufacture movement in-house designed, produced and assembled by the Geneva based luxury watch maker.

Since 2004, Frederique Constant creates its own calibers, entirely in-house designed, produced and assembled.  The Slimline Moonphase Manufacture harbors the Manufacture movement FC-702. The newest addition to the list of 24 in-house calibers is based on the iconic moonphase movement from Frederique Constant. It has been redesigned in order to split the moonphase and date in to two new counters, both functions adjustable through the crown.
The movement shows off the famous Perlage and Côtes de Genève decorations present in all Frederique Constant in-house calibers. It took the brand’s R&D department and watchmakers two years to perfect the movement and introduce it to the market.
The timepiece offers two dial variations: silver-colored and black and comes in either rose gold-plated or polished stainless steel. The 38.8mm 3 parts-case case holds a convex sapphire crystal and see-though case back revealing the inner workings of the FC-702 caliber, and offers a 42-hour power reserve.
The two counters for the moonphase and date are located at three and nine o’clock, respectively. The elegant curved dial merges seamlessly with the case showcasing hand-applied indexes and hand-polished hands. The dark brown or black alligator strap completes the look.
