    Looking for best value FC moonphase

    First time posting so please let me know if I should follow a particular format/layout/guideline.

    I am looking for a nice moonphase watch around the $1200 mark and really loving the offerings by Frederique Constant.

    Which of the following would be a better buy?

    http://www.chrono24.com.au/frederiqu...-id6830805.htm

    http://www.chrono24.com.au/frederiqu...-id6565980.htm

    I like the look of the FC-330MC4P6B a little more but honestly absolutely love both. I live in Australia and a Frederique Constant authorised retailer hadn't even heard of the FC-715MC4H6, and reviews suggest it is a region specific model? Nonetheless it seems to be a more "impressive" watch feature wise with the in house movement and moonphase/date combo. Is this a fair assessment?

    This will be my first expensive watch that I want to own for years to come, so feature set and future value is important.

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

    The 1st one will be thicker because of the half hunter case.
    I prefer the second one because it is on a bracelet,and I prefer the larger date ring.

    Very much agree with your points! Do you think there is a big difference in the movements between the two though?

    Go with the second one, it has an in-house movement.

    Go with that one.

    I agree with Notawatchguyokay. The FC-715 is an in-house movement and the way to go.

    Thank you for confirming my suspicion, it seems the in-house movement represents better value.
