    Two new Frederique Constants, I'm kind of in love.

    I purchased these two last week, and I absoluletly love them. I ordered them from Jomashop, and unfortunately had a negative experience with BOTH orders, I am very happy with the watches. Well thats enough. Heres some pics of them :)

    This is the moonphase FC-365AS4NH6 with the FC-365 (or I guess glorified eta2892).




    Impressions:
    Wow. My buddy texted me this late one night after I had had a few to many brews, knowing I was looking for a nice dressier watch with a moon phase. He sent me the slimline, however not knowing to much about FC, I didn't want to spend that much money on a brand I was to unsure of personally. So, I went with this one (however, I loved the "squarer" look, so it wasn't really "going with anything"). The strap was super rough to break in, but other then that, I'm in love! I would love to swap straps, but it's going to be a huge pain, so I am going to have to make my own.. Maybe the AD can get me the brown one? Okay, so this opened my mind to them, and i liked them a lot.. So.. I started to do more research on other models..


    Next up, being a HUGE car lover (actually loved healeys growing up!), I ordered the Healey Limited Edition model FC-303HSG6B6 with the FC-303 (or glorified eta2824).








    Impressions: Holy value. For just around $500, it's a steal I think. I was in a toss up from this model and one Amazon had to offer with a different 100% closed caseback, but decided on this model instead (only souly due to fact that Jomashop made it right for the deeper scratch my other FC had on arrival). The watch itself was amazing. The strap was again hard to break in, but after a few hours of rolling it, Its good to go! The cars super neat! Just need to find a spot for it now that the old lady won't be mad! lol This watch however, arrived beat up just like my other one :( So, I think I may be done with Joma.. unfortunately. I don't want to get into it, as this is about the watches :)

    Well, there you have it. Next up, I'm feeling a Runabout Chrono, Open heart series, or a perpetual. I like the company's values with womens work, and cardiovascular work (i am in the field.. so they're after my own heart! [pun intended]) For Less then $1500, I think I got great watches that will accompany my other watches quite well :) I find myself grabbing these two and throwing them right into the main rotation with my Omegas!

    Congrats-the watch associated with the Healy car sure will bring nice memories of your childhood loving the retro car. The rally band is definitely quite appropriate for watch with car motif.

    Those are both really nice! I'd like to find one of the slimline perpetual calendars preowned but I'm guessing I'm going to have to wait a while.
