Very classic looking
FC-710 on mesh:
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:
We get ripped off for this watch in the UK
