50-hours of Elegance

Frederique Constant ups their dress watch game with the new SlimLine Power Reserve Manufacture collection.

Frederique Constant added its 28th in-house calibre to its popular Manufacture collection with an extraordinary 50-hour power reserve function at Baselworld this year. The new complication is built on the renowned FC-703 base, to which the power reserve module has been added. This has resulted in the creation of the all-new FC- 723 Manufacture automatic calibre. It has 28 jewels and beats at a frequency of 28,800vph (4Hz).

Seen from the transparent caseback, the innovative FC-723 movement,decorated with perlage and Côtes de Genève, looks magnificent. The collection consists of four models featuring a 40 mm case in stainless steel with a choice of silver, dark grey and navy blue dials, and a rose gold plated steel model with a silver dial. The dials feature a rather classic aesthetic with white-printed Roman numerals and white hand-polished hands on the dark grey and blue dials. The silver dial has the same arrangement with black print numerals and hands. Each dial has a sun-ray decoration to complement the classic design of the elongated feuille hands and printed Roman numerals.

The four models include a central hours and minutes function, a date display function at 6 o’clock and a power reserve indicator at 10 o’clock. All the new models are offered on an alligator strap with a deployant clasp and are priced at Rs. 2.21 lakh for the stainless steel version and Rs. 3.01 lakh for the rose gold plated version.
