Slimline Ladies Moonphase: Swiss Elegance
Now firmly established as a Frédérique Constant flagship creation, the Slimline Ladies Moonphase range is being completed by two new models. Simple, refined, elegant and affordable, they reflect the wish of the watchmaker to broaden the customer-base for Swiss Made luxury watches.
In 2022, Frédérique Constant is reaffirming its faith in classic and classy watchmaking for women. This is the essence of its Slimline Ladies Moonphase range, whose timepieces of only 30 mm purposefully ooze charm and femininity.
After the success of its models with a mother-of-pearl dial and diamond markers, Frédérique Constant is unveiling two new variations which celebrate a return to classic, refined and timeless watchmaking Each model now has a opaline dial with applied stick markers in a pearl black finish. The classic traits of fine Geneva watchmaking are found here, the city in which Frédérique Constant has its own Manufacture.
At midday, only a “XII” stands out with its Roman numerals, which did not exist on the previous models. Around the dial is a new motion work, punctuated every 5 minutes by Arabic numerals, discreetly completed at 6 o’clock by the “Swiss Made” assurance of true quality. This discreet, so-called “railway” interpretation of the motion work evokes the “sector dials” associated with the glory days of the watchmaking of the 1920s to the 1940s, an aesthetic choice confirmed by the “onion” crown at 3 o’clock - topped by an elegant blue cabochon.
However, these two new Slimline Ladies Moonphase watches also benefit from the progress of contemporary watchmaking: their heart beats with the FC-206 quartz movement, guaranteeing 5 years’ operation. It moves two central hands (hours and minutes) of the leaf type, also pearl black, with a gentle and elegant curve in their centre. At 6 o’clock, they pass over an indication of the phases of the Moon in an open crescent, revealing the Earth’s satellite surrounded by stars, on a midnight blue background, recalling the night sky.
These two new variations are available either on a blue leather strap, overstitched in the same colour – easy to change thanks to its “quick change” system –, or on an elegant flexible steel strap with 5 polished links, for a snug fit on the wrist.
Constant Frederique Constant is a Swiss watchmaking manufacture located in Geneva, Switzerland. The Maison was founded in 1988 by a couple of independent entrepreneurs, Aletta and Peter Stas, to offer quality Swiss watches at an affordable price, with the aim of democratising luxury Swiss Made watches.
