    I bought that version (gold plated) a couple of weeks ago, and have been mightily impressed with every aspect. You're right, it looks fantastic on the wrist, especially if you have a large wrist, as I do. Here is a photo.

    Great looking watch. I can guarantee you are going to be thrilled with that watch. FC is my favorite boutique brand, excluding the big boys.

    Yes! Finally after weeks of considerations weighing up the different pros and cons, I finally decided to purchase my first ever mechanical watch.

    The Frederique Constant FC-710MC4HG Manufacture Classics.

    This watch looks much better in real life and outside the shop than in the photos!

    After working for the past 2 years in my first professional job at a corporation in Zurich, I thought it would be great symbolic gesture if I were to buy a swiss watch and congratulate myself for my own efforts, and also keep it as a souvenir

    After some days and nights of research, it occurred to me that the Swiss Watch industry is much more complicated than it seems, and that many of the upper-middle range of luxury watches made in Switzerland had movements made by ETA which is owned by the Swatch Group.

    The idea of purchasing a "car" that used all the same engines from one company was abit of a turn-off.

    I wanted a brand that keeps true to its watch-making.

    Of course as a young professional, brands like Patek, JLC were really out of the question, and I didn't like the sporty style watches such as Rolex and Omega.

    I was looking for something that was more classic with a strong european flavour.

    I eventually landed on the Frederique Constant homepage and ended up trying to make up my mind which one of FC's watches to buy.

    In the end, the Manufacturer Classic FC-710 won me over, due to its understated look with a true manufacture movement and a modest price tag - got it for 2200 CHF (received only a slight 4% discount, nevertheless this is probably a decent price in Zurich Bahnhofstrasse).

    Frederique Constant was also founded in 1988, which is the year in which I was born and the year my current company got its name.

    And its motto "Live Your Passion", definitely strikes a chord with me.

    Thank you to Co-founder Peter Stas and the FC team for coming up with this AWESOME collection of "Accessible Luxury", so that I may too enjoy abit of self-indulgence with my limited budget.

    Here are some photos to show off my new purchase:
