Frederique Constant - CLASSIC MOONPHASE MANUFACTURE

FC-712MS4H6

2 Year Limited Warranty

Crafted in harmony with the finest watchmaking traditions, the Classics Moonphase Manufacture comes in a very balanced 42 mm case diameter and housing the FC-712 movement, in-house designed, produced, and assembled.

THE WATCHMAKING EXCELLENCE

Fully conceived, developed, produced, assembled, adjusted, and encased in the Frederique Constant workshops in Plan-les-Ouates, Geneva, Switzerland, the manufacturing process of the Manufacture collection timepieces requires extensive work. All the details are executed by hand, mostly, for the pure pleasure of the connoisseurs of high-quality watchmaking.

MANUFACTURE HISTORY

Frederique Constant has been conceiving, developing, and producing its in-house Manufacture Calibers since 2004. The first caliber was the Heart Beat Manufacture, cal. FC-910 with its iconic aperture in the dial and mainplate at 6 o’clock position. Newer versions of the Heart Beat Manufacture included various complications followed. In 2008, the design and development briefing for a second base caliber was very straight forward: redevelop all components and search to reduce cost of manufacturing, while at least maintaining the same high-quality level of the Heart Beat Manufacture calibers.

FC-712 MANUFACTURE

The Classics Manufacture is equipped with the FC-712 Automatic Manufacture caliber, featuring a date counter at 9 o’clock and a moon phase counter at 3 o’clock. Functions are all adjustable by the crown only. Hours, minutes and central second hand complete these functions. Beating at 4 Hz (28’800 alt/h) with a 38-hour power reserve, the caliber is water resistant up to 5 ATM (50 meters). Through the convex sapphire glass, you will admire the delicate Clous de Paris guilloché.

What is an Automatic Watch?

An automatic watch harnesses the movement of the wearer's arm to power its mechanism. As the arm moves, a rotor inside the watch rotates, winding the mainspring. This stored energy is then released, driving the gears that keep the watch's hands moving and accurate timekeeping.
