Since 2004, Frédérique Constant creates its own mechanical timepieces, produced by professional watchmakers in the Manufacture in Plan-les-Ouates.

In 2015, the brand introduces its 19th calibre, which is in-house developed, produced and assembled. The new FC-715 calibre - a movement with a moonphase complication - powers the new Classic Manufacture Moonphase watch.

The Classic Manufacture Moonphase comes in a very balanced 40,5mm case, with the choice of either stainless steel or rose gold plated finishing. The silver dial bears polished double or single baton-type hour-markers and dauphine. The disk of the moonphase features a night sky with the moon and stars.

The FC-715 movement offers a 42-hour power reserve and drives the moonphase, date, hours, minutes and seconds, all functions being adjustable by a single crown.

The watch is adorned with either a black or brown alligator-skin strap with a pin-buckle, and the Frédérique Constant’s crest is engraved on it.
