Pre Basel 2014: Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Manufacture

When Frederique Constant launched its new Slimline Moonphase Manufacture range last year, the clear emphasis was on the ease with which all applications could be accessed through the single crown. For 2014 they made improvements to the model.

The two models of the Slimline Moonphase Manufacture becomes new looks. The FC-705S4S6B is presented with a gleaming, three-part stainless steel case measuring  42mm diameter. The automatic movement features hours, minutes, date and moonphase, all adjustable through the single crown. The domed silver dial is adorned with hand-applied nickel indexes and hands, and is protected by a convex sapphire crystal. The appreciated see-through case back has also been retained.

The FC-705N4S6B offers the same features and functionality, but the dial is a midnight navy blue. Both models are driven by the FC-705 Manufacture caliber, with 26 jewels and an 42-hour power reserve.

Also the alligator straps on the previous model is replaced by a stainless steel bracelet . The new bracelet features a seven-link design and a unique butterfly buckle with pushers, giving the Slimline Moonphase a stylish, outdoors look.
