Making its way to WatchTime New York this weekend, the scintillating Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Stars Manufacture watch will dazzle your night (or day). Known for its intricate and sophisticated women’s and men’s timepieces, Frederique Constant outdoes itself with this watch that captures the mystery and beauty of the night sky in a timepiece that is both elegant and technical.
Designed by Aletta Stas, co-founder of the brand, the Slimline Moonphase Stars Manufacture incorporates artisanship that only Frederique Constant can master. This dazzling women’s timepiece comes in two signature hues of the night. The lighter of the two watches features a deep navy blue dial with a sunray decoration. Adorning the dial are petite rose gold colored stars, indexes and hand polished hands. The golden twinkle of the stars is complemented by a rose gold plated 38.8 mm case. It retails for a nice number: $4,695.
On the darker end of the spectrum, the second style of the Slimline Moonphase Stars Manufacture features a pitch-black dial adorned with small silver colored stars and indexes referenced by two hand-polished nickel hands. In a striking feat of contrast, this midnight black timepiece is surrounded by a stainless steel case measuring 38.8 mm. To tie together the hues of the night, this watch is available on either a glossy blue or black alligator strap. This model retails for $4,395.
In an ode to the twinkle of the night, the Slimline Moonphase Stars Manufacture features a stunning diamond bezel adorned with 60 individual .5ct diamonds. Additionally, there are 8 handset diamond indices nestled among the stars on the dial. Atop of this magnificent dial, at 12 o’clock, sits none other than the signature moonphase complication.
Equally as captivating as the beauty of this timepiece, is the complication behind it. A transparent case-back reveals the FC-701 automatic in-house movement decorated with Perlage and Cotes de Geneve details including 26 jewels and a power reserve of 42 hours. In an effort for increased user efficiency, all of the functions of this timepiece are adjustable through the crown. In the Slimline Moonphase Stars Manufacture Frederique Constant captivates its user as artfully as the night sky.
