The Frederique Constant Slimline Automatic collection has a noble cause: offering beautiful and automatic timepieces at affordable prices. For everyone who is looking for a watch made by a master watchmaker incorporating years of research and development, as FC claims.

And they do have a point. The Swiss based watchmaker is involved in every step of the production process. From design to assembly and quality control. The house has manufactured 21 in-house calibers since 2004. Each watch is assembled by hand in the 32,000-square foot Geneva home base. It’s here that every watch is subjected to extensive controls. This way Frederique Constant ensures maximum quality and durability.

The Frederique Constant Slimline Automatic is classic minimalism

The Slimline collection is powered by the FC-306 automatic caliber. This movement beats at 28,800 vph and has 25 jewels. It provides a 42-hours power-reserve and is water-resistant to 30 meters.

As the name of the collection suggests, in look and feel, the keyword is slim. But how thick? Not in FC’s specs. The case has a diameter of 40 millimeters. On the clean white dial, there are black Roman numeral indexes and a square date window at 3 o’clock. That’s it. We say: classic minimalism.

The sapphire crystal case back enables you to see the movement doing its magic. Every case back is engraved with the name of Frederique Constant. And every watch is marked with an individual reference number to emphasize its authenticity.

The watch comes in a steel case with a black leather wristband with a matching steel pin buckle. Or in rose gold plated with a chocolate brown leather strap and matching rose gold plated pin buckle.
