Frédérique Constant New Slimline Moonphase Manufacture
Frederique Constant introduces a new version of its iconic Slimline Moonphase Manufacture and stays true to its timeless and classic icons.
Frederique Constant introduces a new version of its iconic Slimline Moonphase Manufacture; a timepiece that mimics the moon’s transformation through the night’s sky on your wrist. Ancient civilizations were the first to use celestial bodies as a time-telling device. We have to wait until the 16th century to find the first clock with a moonphase complication, and it is not until the late 19th, early 20th century that it transitioned to pocket watches and then later on to wristwatches.
Inspired by previous models, this newest version reveals the same timeless elegance and style, a trademark of the collection. It is one of the most praised watches of the Manufacture Collection, featuring the FC-705 caliber entirely in-house designed produced and assembled protected within a 42mm case. The dial displays intricate and subtle details such as the beautiful silver-colored dial with sunray decoration, delicate printed black Roman numeral indexes, and elegant hand-polished dauphine hands swivel around the dial. The opening at 6 o’clock features the date but most importantly, the ever so astonishing moonphase complication revealing each stage of the moon’s metamorphosis. The dark blue disk contrasts with golden-colored stars and a mesmerizing golden moon swaying through the opening as if dancing to its own melody. A golden thread accentuates the rim of the opening standing out from the silver sheen of the dial.

The moonphase complication is, as in all Frederique Constant timepieces, of simple use. To set it up, you will need to consult a moonphase calendar and match the phase of the moon to your watch. To do so, simply push the crown once and move it downward to mimic that particular night’s moon phase, afterwards, move the crown upward to set up the date and you are ready to enjoy your Slimline Moonphase Manufacture.
