Frederique Constant’s “Accessible Luxury”
premise translated into the new Classics Moonphase Automatic
The Swiss Watchmaker Frederique Constant is recognized for its classical and refined timepieces of exceptional value. Elegant lines and a timeless appearance are the prime features of every watch within the Classics Collection. The success of this collection is based on the attractive ratio between the high-end elements and its incomparable value. Intricate details, not only esthetically but also at the technical level, using the finest materials and the most advanced techniques. With the Classics Collection, the brand continues to affirm its status as the first one to offer high end luxury to a reasonable price without compromising on the quality of the timepiece.
The newest addition to the collection, the Classic Moonphase Automatic fits this description flawlessly. Three versions are introduced for the first time in 2016, a yellow gold plated steel, a stainless steel on a leather strap and a full stainless steel version, all supporting a 40 mm case.In this new model, the automatic caliber FC-330 displays hours, minutes, seconds and a date by hand on a elaborated silver-colored dial featuring clous de Paris decoration, printed black Roman numerals and classical Breguet-style hands. The sub-dial shows off the date while the detailed moonphase opening ornates the 6 o’clock position. When turning over the watch, discover the finely decorated movement visible by the see-through back case. The several strap combinations vary from a black, brown or blue leather to a full steel bracelet. The “Accessible Luxury” premise is imbedded in the Frederique Constant’s culture and DNA, and this particular timepiece, embodies it perfectly. A highly detailed timepiece for a reasonable price.
