Frederique Constant today unveiled the latest member of its popular Manufacture Collection. The latest Slimline Moonphase Manufacture combines a starkly elegant ivory-colored dial with a detailed moonphase and date counter sub-dial at the 6 o’clock mark.
The ivory dial is accented with sunray decoration and applied silver color indexes. The sub-dial features an illustration of the moon and stars on a contrasting dark blue background. It is ringed with a date counter. The time is provided by central hour and minute hands.
This latest Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Manufacture is powered by an in-house automatic FC-705 caliber. All the functions are adjustable via the crown, eliminating the need for additional push buttons and retaining the simple design of other Moonphase Manufacture models.
The 42mm model appears to sport a stainless steel case but this detail remains to be confirmed.
