    Frederique Constant Perpetual Calendar

    Would you purchase one? What are your thoughts?

    I for one, am a little excited over this. I like the overall design of the watch but it being 42mm is a little big for a dress watch. I'll hold back my reservations of the watch until I try it on in person. Hopefully it'll wear just nice on my wrist.

    I do understand that it might not have the best movement finishing out there but that's just purely aesthetics to me. If it has outstanding finishing that's a plus for me, not a must. I appreciate both the movement and the calendar module as being in house built/design. I'm the guy that loves Nomos and Seiko.

    Comparing this to the Mont Blanc Perpetual Calendar I would take this as the sub dials are much better spaced out as opposed to the rather squished look of the MB (although the MB is at a perfect 39mm!)

    Yellow gold is not my thing, but yes, I would wear it. The common wisdom of "42mm is too large for a dress watch" is only of importance if you have truly slender wrists; it's more correct to say that a dress watch should not appear large on the wrist, but properly proportioned. Besides, the purists would say this watch is not a dress watch anyway, due to the preponderance of complications, so the only thing that's truly important here is that *you* like it.

    Looks like a good watch to me. Not a fan of the yellow gold (wears off very quickly), but overall almost any FC watch is worth it's price, IMHO.

    You Bet! They are both awesome but it's a matter of personal preference and taste.
    Hopefully things will not change for this great watchmaker now that Citizen bought them!
