Frederique Constant were founded in 1988, and have quickly established a niche in affordable luxury watches. This is model FC-303BN5B6B
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the original paperwork that accompanies this watch we know that it was sold in March 2017.
The watch has light signs of wear, but nothing really striking. The box is in good condition, and contains spare bracelet links too. The sapphire crystal is unmarked, revealing the pure white dial and golden indexes and hands. The 26 jewel FC303 automatic movement is behind the solid case back, and this is based on the Sellita SW200 so future servicing will be fine. Oris and Montblanc also use this caliber as the base for some of their movements, and the 28,800 bph movement allows a very smooth seconds hand. The case back has lost most of the black enamel paint used to highlight the details, and this seems constant with other examples we have seen, The bracelet can be sized to your wrist size before the watch is sent out. The retail price for this model is around £1,000, so buying nearly new represents great value.
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box, papers and our Certificate of Authenticity.
