    Re: FC Maxime Manufacture Silicium LE

    Thank you Mr.Stas... a pleasure to wear your watch.
    As I wrote before - the finest quality for the money.

    P.S. One dirty caseback picture - should soon post some proper gallery.

    I was hesitant about the lack of a seconds hand originally too, but frankly after owning the watch I prefer it without the seconds hand as it is a dress watch. Somehow seems more elegant to me.

    The dial is made of a fine copper aliage with guilloche pattern. Thereafter, it is galvanized to get the deep dark grey color and indexes are applied by hand.

    Also saw the comment on Second Hand, please note this was our first Maxime Manufacture Caliber. On the Classics Manufacture which we just introduced in Basel, we added a center second hand.
    Welcome to the forums Mr. Stas. I hope to see more of your presence in the forums. I own a few FC watches and I thoroughly impressed by the craftsmanship.

    Gorgeous looking piece. The back is stunning as well. Is the crystal coated with AR on both sides?

    Our first manufacture caliber FC700 did not have the center second because we wanted to make the caliber and watches as thin as possible. On the new Classics Manufacture we just introduced, we have added a center second hand, so we now have two versions.

    The sapphire glass is coated with anti reflective coating on front side. On back, we do not have anti reflective coating.
