A brand I would have never considered buying, but after handling one in person, I'm reconsidering.

OK, it's not a brand that shows up here often, and not a brand I would have ever considered buying in the past, but I stopped by my local AD and was immediately attracted to one specific watch. The brand is Frederique Contsant, the model, a very attractiv...  

I don't know what else you have in your collection...

but take the advice my wife gave when I was considering FC. She simply said: "Sure the price is good, but you will not wear it." Also, if you are looking to quench a thirst for a new watch, remember one thing: The watch you bought "in-between" is always t... 

Your point is well taken...

I bought this FC before I got into higher end watches. I still love the look. Exhibition back and great deployent clasp. But of late, when I need a luxury brown strap watch, I will more often than not wear this: But I gotta be honest, that FC still gets a...  

That's generally good advice and I've considered how much I would wear it and I'm actually sure it would see enough wrist time.

My collection is small, maybe 15 or so watches, ranging from a worthless funky '70s digital through Breitling, Rolex, JLC, Jaquet Droz, AP, as well as some random vintage pieces. I usually change watches two to three times a day and have been doing so for... 

Exactly Nicolas, FC manufactures a nice watch at a fair price.

Nice FC...

Enjoy! -- Richard.

I've recently had a discussion with someone about this specific watch

And I think if you can overcome all the fuss about names etc, this is a very interesting package indeed. So I fully understand your statements. Sure it will make you happy. Br, Dirk

FC--don't do it

A copycat brand with no meaning. My 2c. With that said, their choice of brands to copy are well-founded. Kind of like when Hyundai copies Benz. In this vintag-y realm, go Montblanc! (pre-owned, perfect)

I think you're on the right track. A little perspective, here, for all...

As CNC machines have been mentioned in the OP, let’s all be aware of this: “Our tour started in the basement, where components manufacturing takes place. Like any full-fledged watch manufacture, this involved multiple-axis CNC machines, spark erosion mach... 

I had a look at the FC QP last week

I was quite impressed with the presentation of the watch, it's clean dial and nice fit.

Oh… I'm so glad. And not because of my diatribe (which, not incidentally, I do believe in). Rather, because it is important to remain

grounded in this ever-spiraling hobby. Cbb-in-honor-of-Chamnong-Bhirombhak's post of June 23 (5077P) perfectly illustrates my point. How unutterably beautiful these marquetry dials are! And if one had had his billions—OK, then, why not purchase a set of f...
