Frederique Constant introduces the Frederique Constant Manufacture Classic Power Reserve Big Date Steel, after launching two earlier versions in gold and platinum. Now it’s the steel turn, which makes it obviously more affordable. It comes in two versions: one with a blue dial and the other is in silver, both on a blue leather strap.
The case measures 40 millimeters, and as the watch is part of the classic collection is subtle. Just plain, nice round and rounded shapes, regular lugs, the perfect dress watch. It displays a blue or silver sunray-finished dial. The indexes are applied, and diamond cut, and the hands of the hours, minutes and seconds are hand-polished and silver colored.
The Frederique Constant Manufacture Classic Power Reserve Big Date Steel has a power reserve of 50 hours
Also on the dial, you can see the three complications very clearly on the dial. The power reserve indicator at 9 o’clock, a big date between 2 and 3 o’clock and lastly, the moon phase. That one has a blue starry background at 6 o’clock. Which is a key feature that should have been more prominent in the name of the watch than Power Reserve. Anyway, there are no pushers, sliders, or buttons on the side of the watch, just the crown. Which means all functions can be operated directly by the crown.
Inside the Frederique Constant Manufacture Classic Power Reserve Big Date Steel is an automatic caliber FC-735. It is the first movement of the brand that renders these three complications, the big date, a moon phase, and a power reserve indicator. Nevertheless, it delivers a sufficient power reserve of 50 hours. And the transparent case back shows you this new caliber to admire its open-worked rotor and decorative perlage and Côtes de Genève finishings.
