The first of the new models, the FC-306MC4S35, is presented with a yellow gold plated case. This 39mm case is extremely thin (7.7mm) but nevertheless water resistant to 30 metres. It houses the FC-306 Automatic 25-jewel movement, with 28,800 beats per hour and a 42-hour power reserve. The internal workings of this elegant timepiece can be seen via the see-through case back.
The silver dial bears guilloche decoration at its centre. Functions include hours and minutes, with a date indicator at the 3 o’clock position. Roman numeral indexes give a classic appearance to an already timeless face, and the luxurious brown crococalf strap completes the package.
The second watch in the new Classics Slimline Automatic Collection, the FC-306MC4S36, features a glimmering, hand polished, stainless steel case.
The stainless steel model is offered at a retail price of just CHF 1,550, while the gold plated version costs just CHF 1,750.
