A good cigar shop

Sep 16, 2023,13:36 PM

It was a surprise that the shop owner of a cigar shop notice my Frederique Constant Slimline monolithic and made a compliment of the nice looks of my Frederique Constant.
I told him that my watch developed and made in Geneva by Dutch owners and it have no balance wheel, and run by a silicon disc. 810 peaces made with blue dial, 810 peaces made with a silver dial, and finally 81 peaces in pure gold.
The first time that out of the blue somebody ask me about my watch on my wrist. Ok, his name is Twan.
It felt good that there is watch interest in general by people. It was different lets say 6 years ago, when we go more stealthy around the city streets and the smartwatch had a more dominant position.

Ones i was on a nephews party when his grand mother remarks my Omega nato strap. But that is in a family situation, where giving compliments can happen faster than in a shoppingmall. I admired his grandmother moon phase watch, but i never complimented her...  

An emotional turner

Fun, but it is also a vintage without damages. Some wear, but i am surprised that all is in such a shape after so many years. Even de polish is undamaged. The dial have a light patina. Here i am looking which battery is in and i noticed mine can use newer...  

That is a very attractive and innovative watch.

I am curious to see the further evolution of this new oscillator technique. Overall FC is now into some very serious watchmaking!

Pushing the boundaries further

FC is taken watches and the people who buy FC watches very serious. Ambitious and on the go for what they stand for, affordable luxury watches.

Very bad

It is a watch that needs to be ignored by the ones that go for accuracy. It is a new innovation that needs to be fine tuned. So, an old fashioned watch with a Swiss lever escapement is far more accurate.

Surprised to hear that. So it definitely needs
