Peter and Aletta Stas are the successful husband and wife team behind watchmakers Frederique Constant. The brand is named after the great grandparents of each founder, namely Frédérique Schreiner and Constant Stas. The brand’s new Slimline Classic Automatics include the FC-306MC4S35, presented with a yellow gold plated case.
The 39mm case is extremely thin (7.7mm) and yet water resistant to 30 metres. It houses the FC-306 Automatic 25-jewel movement, with 28,800 beats per hour and a 42-hour power reserve. The internal workings of this timepiece can be viewed through the see-through case back.
The silver dial bears guilloche decoration at its centre. Functions include hours and minutes, with a date indicator at the 3 o’clock position. Roman numeral indexes lend a classic appearance to an already timeless face, and the luxurious brown croco-calf strap completes the look.
The second watch in the new Classics Slimline Automatic Collection, the FC-306MC4S36, features a hand polished, stainless steel case. The stainless steel model is offered at a retail price of just CHF 1,550, while the gold plated version costs CHF 1,750.
