OVER THE MOON
Frédérique Constant has transformed its Slimline Moonphase. The model has a bigger personality now that the moon phase and date displays have been separated!
If you like the Manufacture Slimline Moonphase then you’re going to love the Slimline Moonphase Manufacture! Frédérique Constant hasn’t just swapped the words round and called it a new watch. On the first model, the moon phase and date were together in the same disc at 6 but both features have their own symmetrical displays on the new one. The Slimline collection may be all about classic chic but additional functions aren’t going to tarnish its watches’ smart personality. Despite its compact 38.8mm case, the layout of the dial couldn’t be more spacious and the time displays are in keeping with each other. The slim hour and minute hands and streamlined markers enhance the sense of flawless style.
The watch is fuelled by the self-winding FC-702 movement (42-hour power reserve). The calibre brings to life the actual position of the moon in real-time in a star-spangled display. The counter with Arabic numerals on the rim has a pointer to track the date. The crown controls all the functions on the watch.
There are different versions available to suit a range of tastes. One has a silver or black dial with a rose gold-plated case. The other pairs a silvery dial with a steel case. The Slimline Moonphase Manufacture comes with a black or brown alligator strap (subject to model) that only enhances the sense of classic chic.
Price: €2,895 (steel) – €2,995 (rose gold-plated steel) frederiqueconstant.com
