    I'm really liking the watch but is it truly in-house? I saw this and now I doubt it Frederique Constant – Geneve - WATCH CARE I'm thinking about getting one.

    Everything I have read and was told by the AD is that its fully in house. I see the part you're talking about in that link. Thats very alarming. Anyone have any info?

    The watch has been great regardless but the selling point that got me to pick it over a few others was the in house.

    The link is wrong. It is fully in-house with regards to the design and manufacturing of many of its parts. There is no part interchangeability with a Sellita SW200, SW300, or ETA movements other than, say, the hairsprings or balance wheels which are outsourced.

    Please don't let a typo on the web page change your opinion.

    Good to hear. Hopefully someone knows how to contact FC to let them know about a typo on their site :)

    Hello, I see your photos of the extra watch bands and was wondering if you bought regular pin buckle bands and just cut the keeper off. Also if you feel that the gap in the leather for the pin that is visible in the bottom of the watch bothers you. i am also looking for other strap options and am finding it difficult because the 22/18mm width and the 90mm long short piece.

    Re: Frederique Constant Classics Manufacture

    I am of belief that pin buckles are more casual and thus bought the tan one specifically as such. The blue one was actually given to me by an AD when i bought the tan one as it was the right size and he had nothing else to use it on and I removed the pin buckle and keepers and threw on the deployant because i wanted to dress it up a bit. Over time the gap seen in the photos has completely flattened out. There is obviously still the pin gap. It's a touch annoying to me but no one else has noticed it unless i take the watch off and give it to them with that particular strap on (in the beginning i used to ask my friends if they could see it up close).

    I went to an AD and built the tan one custom. You can also do it on Camille Fournets website - its really easy and relatively fast shipping.

    Re: Frederique Constant Classics Manufacture

    I recently had the FC Classics Manufacture in steel bought for me as a gift. Before trying the watch on, I had some reservations about the size - my previous watch was 40mm and I thought anything larger might be too bulky. I know a lot of other people are concerned about the same thing. After trying the watch on, though, my fears have been assuaged. I thought I'd upload some wrist shots here, as these seem to be surprisingly sparse on the web.

    My wrist is 58-59mm across (around the same width as an iPhone 5s, for reference).
