While not a watch released yesterday, I haven't covered this one yet. Now owned by Citizen, Frederique Constant has decided to increase their market standing by introducing an in-house perpetual calendar. The movement has found its way into the Slimline collection. It comes in a number of versions, with a choice of dials (silver/white or blue), and cases (rose gold plated or stainless steel). The design is rather plain and simple, yet at the same time they display an extraordinary amount of information including the day, date, month, and year (well, kinda). The year indicator is limited to 1 year, 2 years, or 3 years (from a leap-year). The case back is sapphire, allowing one to easily view the FC-775 movement. The rose gold plated + silver dial (Ref. FC-775V4S4) is available for $8,995. The rose gold-plated steel model with a blue dial (Ref. FC-775N4S4) is also $8,995. The stainless steel + silver dial (Ref. FC-775S4S6) is priced at 8,795. Later this year there is also a solid rose gold model slated to be available for $15,900.
