Motivated by the outstanding popularity of the Slimline Moonphase Manufacture collection and to celebrate the exceptional success the brand is experiencing in North and South America, Swiss watchmaker, Frederique Constant, will unveil a new variation on this coveted timepiece, inspired by the deep blues of the lunar atmosphere. Featuring a highly sophisticated midnight navy blue dial and a navy alligator strap, the new model is hallmarked by a stainless steel case, finished in 18k rose gold, adding warmth and depth to the soothing cool tone of midnight blue. This limited production version of a highly sought after 300 pieces will be available exclusively at leading retailers throughout the Americas.
The color blue traditionally signifies a deep-seeded inner security and confidence, and wordlessly conveys those very strengths about the wearer of the new Slimline Moonphase Manufacture timepiece. The choice to adorn one's wrist with the very essence of 'blue' is a communicative statement of reliability and responsibility. Echoing the tranquility and dependability of the moon itself, the deep hue of this timepiece is reminiscent of man's century-spanning bond with the moon above. The added glint of warm rose gold intensifies the expression of timeless style. This elegant 300-piece limited production Slimline Moonphase Manufacture, featuring a stainless steel case finished in 18k rose gold, measures 42mm in diameter. The automatic movement features hours, minutes, date and indication of the phases of the moon, all adjustable through the single crown. The stunning domed deep blue dial is adorned with hand-applied rose gold plated indexes and hands, and is protected by a convex sapphire crystal. The new model is driven by the FC-705 caliber, a movement that is designed, produced and hand assembled in-house by Frederique Constant. The watch indicates the date and moonphase at the 6 o'clock position. An incredible new technology known as "laser ablation" has been used to create an outstandingly detailed and precise image of the moon. Each of the new Slimline Moonphase Manufacture models feature a movement with a 26-jewels, an impressive 42-hour power reserve and Perlage and Circular Côtes de Genève decoration. Presented in a specially designed wooden gift box, Frederique Constant's Slimline Moonphase Manufacture watches are created in-house by the brand's talented design team and master watchmakers in Plan-les-Ouates, Switzerland to provide classic and covetable timepieces with unrivalled reliability.
Frederique Constant will offer this special edition Slimline Moonphase Manufacture exclusively through its retail partners in the Americas, priced at $3'995, an exceptional value for a quietly assertive communication of style, hallmarked by Swiss expertise and craftsmanship. Designed as a collectible, this new model will enhance any watch lover's wardrobe and conjure the energy and mystique of the cosmos.
