So I pulled the trigger on a Frederique Constant Manufacture watch and should have it by next week.
I had kept a very close eye on them when I used to collect watches.
I had admired the movements and really appreciated their efforts as one of the first companies to invest in Inhouse movements long before the dreaded ETA stock shortage and price hikes. Unfortunately no one carried them at that time, and the one who did was asking retail. 0 Discounts. Now I have found them at multiple places, many discounted but not by much.
I finally found it at a good price (Seems FC prices vary GREATLY). I will see how it goes.
