Basel, March 21st, 2019 – Watches need power to run properly and keep the right time. Frederique Constant is proud to add its 28th in-house caliber within its Manufacture collection innovating with an extraordinary 50-hour power reserve function in-house movement. The Frederique Constant Manufacture Slimline Power Reserve features hours, minutes and a date display at 6 o’clock.
This new complication has been built on the renowned FC-703 base where the Power Reserve module has been added to create the new FC-723 Manufacture automatic caliber.
The watch is available in four models and boasts a 40mm case either in stainless steel or in rose gold-plated stainless steel with different dial colors (silver, dark grey or navy blue), Roman numerals and sunray decoration with hand polished white or black hands. The whole is made complete with an elegant alligator strap with a deployant clasp.
The easy-to-read power reserve indicator is displayed at 10 o’clock on the dial with a red sector indicating that it’s time to put the watch on, or wind it.
The result is a watch with a very classical look and a touch of asymmetry provided by the power reserve indicator, and is definitely the best quality-price power reserve function available on the Swiss made watch market.
True to its roots and values created by its founders, Peter and Aletta Stas, Frederique Constants is always pushing the boundaries to the limit in order to produce some of the finest mechanical and complicated timepieces at the most competitive prices propelling the Brand into a future of opportunities, a new era of exploring new technical innovations while upholding the Swiss excellence of watchmaking.
