    FC Maxime Manufacture Silicium LE

    Hello everyone

    As a proud new owner of the new Frederique Constant Maxime Manufacture Silicium Limited Edition I present you with some pictures (sorry for the quality) of this stunning piece. For the money it's the best timepiece you can get, finishing is superb, movement is manufacture-in-house-made by FC (with silicium escapement) and the guilloche anthracite-grey dial is just WOW !!!

    I don't mean to exaggerate - but it is hell-of-a-watch for that king of money... and beyond. Enjoy ;)

    Beautiful watch. If I'd known about this one I would have strongly considered it when I was buying my Maxime from a WUS member (with the silver dial). I love it just the same!

    Loving that watch. Is that a gray dial or a black one?

    Gray...looks fantastic...surprisingly nice combination with polished, steel case (thought it only works with red gold).

    FC is one of my favorite boutique manufacturers. This watch is a prime example of my liking of FC. I hope they continue along this road.

    Very nice! What is the dial made of? I love the harmony of the case, dial, and hands. Well done!

    Thank you for your support!

    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.
