At Baselworld this year, Frederique Constant made waves with their new range of dress watches, which include brand new manufacture-made movements. These new movements offer a 50-hour power reserve, which you can monitor with the power reserve dial on the face of the watch. Set at 10 o’clock, the power reserve indicator shows you how many hours are left in your reserve, even showing a red zone when you get to 12 and a half hours.
The Slimline keeps a traditional appearance, with elongated feuille hour and minute hands and Roman numerals. It also displays the date at six o’clock. Available in three different colors and two cases. The cases come in either polished stainless steel or rose gold plated stainless steel. The available colors include silver-white in both cases, dark grey in polished stainless steel, and navy blue in polished stainless steel.
The movement is an in-house made, automatic FC-723 caliber, which is the company’s 28th in-house caliber from the Frederique Constant Manufacture collection. This movement uses the FC-703 as its base and adds the power reserve module. The case measures 40mm, and comes with an alligator strap with a deployant clasp. The three stainless steel models are priced at USD$3,195; the rose gold plated case comes in at USD$3,495.
