The New FC-702 Movement
The Slimline Moonphase Manufacture harbors the Manufacture movement FC-702. The newest addition to the list of 24 in-house calibers is based on the iconic moonphase movement from Frederique Constant. It has been redesigned in order to split the moonphase and date in to two new counters, both functions adjustable through the crown. The movement shows off the famous Perlage and Côtes de Genève decorations present in all Frederique Constant in-house calibers. It took the brand’s R&D department and watchmakers two years to perfect the movement and introduce it to the market.
Since 2004, Frederique Constant creates its own calibers, entirely in-house designed, produced and assembled. This was an important step to becoming more independent and having more control over the production line, improve quality and accelerate product delivery. In May 2017, the brand announced the expansion of their current Manufacture located in Plan-les-Ouates. This decision was based on the sole purpose of accommodating the growing interest in the Manufacture movements. In-house calibers have become a trademark of Frederique Constant and its loyal followers appreciate every single one of them.
