I have always appreciated this watch, to the point of having bought almost the blue version of the dial and the bracelet.
The Stas couple’s policy of making Frederique Constant independent of movement providers has paid off with 24 calibers on the counter today.
It must be recognized that this is one of the most interesting houses in terms of development strategy. The advantages are numerous: cost control, deadlines, easy after-sales service, technical flexibility, etc.
Let’s leave the business sphere to return to the product. The new Slimline Moonphase has the FC-702 manufacturing movement.
This new movement shows the Moon phases and the date in two different counters.
The previous version regrouped dates and moon phases at the same counter located at 6 o’clock as shown below.
Blue exit (what a disappointment, it was splendid! You may listen to me;)), the watch is available with a silver or black dial.
The 38.8 mm case is available in steel or rose gold plated. The background is transparent to admire the manufacturing movement, consoling it in your purchase every time you contemplate it.
The result on the dial is elegant, but I can hardly say where my preference goes between the previous and the new version. And you ?
