    Amazon's got an unreal deal on a slimline

    Hi guys! I've been watching this watch for a while and I've NEVER seen it this low, anywhere. Amazon currently has the FC316v5b9 going for just $1,230.16. Isn't that unreal??? It's MSRP is $4,995!!!!!

    It's 18k rose gold, automatic, and just 7.5mm thick. Sure, it's not one of their manufacture movements, but what an amazing looking watch. For comparison's sake, Jomashop has this same watch on sale for $2,250.

    Definitely a good deal, but understand that it’s only gold plated, not solid gold.
    Personally though, unless you had to have RG, I’d suggest spend the small extra on the Slimline Moonphase, especially with the blue dial and manufacture movement.

    Thanks guys--I've just ordered one, should be here soon. CAN'T WAIT!!!

    PJ S, I know it sounds too good to be true, but this one is actually solid rose gold, not gold plated. Check out the FC site for info. on this particular model: SLIMLINE AUTOMATIC | Frederique Constant. Also, other folks have asked whether it's real gold or not on Amazon, and the Perfect Timing seller confirms several times that it is in fact solid not plated.

    Btw PJ, that's also an awesome deal on that Slimline Moonphase you linked. Now if only I had enough money for them all, lol . . . Eventually, I would LOVE to have a great moonphase in my collection.

    Also, I should say that that Slimline Moonphase has been on my radar too in the past--but if you're interested in it too, you might want to check out this other thread from the forums: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f478/39...y-2028233.html

    I stand corrected – it does indeed seem that a few models are solid 18k and not plated steel like the others.
    Pity they didn’t push the boat out on using solid 18k indices, as presumably solid gold hands would’ve been too heavy for the ETA caliber used.

    Congrats, btw – and remember, you’ve to announce your incoming with a plethora of photos.

    Looks like Amazon got wise to the low price. They're now asking $2020.

    I agree--solid gold indices would be excellent. But then again, that would probably take this watch well into another category, perhaps beyond my reach (for the time being!). I'm happy I can secure it as it is, haha. I've tried it on at an AD and really just absolutely love it. (for the record though, a solid gold watch that goes solid all the way is also certainly something I look forward to owning and enjoying someday).

    ...pictures will absolutely be forthcoming, hopefully in the next few days!
