    Love my FC-303, not a luxury piece but a great classic looking entry level dress watch for the money. Pretty hard to beat.

    You really have to see these in person to appreciate the dial. I wish I had the moonphase version though.

    My experience is they are very nice for the money. Fit and finish is very good and the in-house movements are lovely.

    I think they are a black sheep of the luxury watch world, not unlike Bremont or Hublot. That is, they are technically a luxury brand and the people who favor them like them a lot, but the watch cognoscenti largely turns their noses up at them most of the time, to the point of even making fun of the brand whenever it comes up in discussion, which it rarely does.

    So I would say that if you really like an FC offering, there's no reason not to buy one, but understand that it's not going to hold value and watch people will likely not be impressed by it. Maybe that's not fair, but it is what it is, and better you should know before buying one.

    Probably entry level luxury? nice watches but huge discount at grey market. The market prices for pre-owned are very low.
