Frédérique Constant launches its latest women’s moonphase watch at the Azur Coast Observartory in Nice
The current trend for moonphases shows no sign of abating and now Frédérique Constant has got in on the action. Launched in September at the Azur Coast Observatory in Nice, the latest addition to the world of lunar complications is a gorgeous, feminine timepiece that features a moonphase at 12 o’clock with a dial scattered with stars.
“The stars and the sky have always fascinated me,” says Aletta Stas, co-founder of the brand and designer of this particular watch. “The eternal questions mentioned as early as the Greek philosophers such as is there life on other planets? Where does the sky stop, or will it ever stop? What is eternity? It is a source of inspiration. Watching the stars with your loved ones gives you a moment of peace where time stands still for a little while.”
The design is available in either a rose gold-plated steel or plain steel with a diamond-set bezel and in either a midnight-blue or jet-black dial. Turn the watch over and a sapphire caseback reveals the new in-house FC-701 movement, which like all previous FC-7XX caliber series, has all its functions regulated via the crown only, which makes adjusting your moonphase even simpler.
It is an elegant take on this perennially popular complication and, at £3,600 if you can’t decide which dial colour to go for, you could always take both. Shop Now
