Taking in the night skies

RJ has long been a fan of our night skies and the moon. When discussing the Frederique Constant Classic Moonphase Manufacture, he said "A moonphase was one of the first complications that I ever saw on a wristwatch. I was just a kid and our neighbour showed us his new watch, with a moon phase on the dial. It was like magic to me. Only much later, I understood the complexity of a moonphase display on a (mechanical) watch."

"The moon is something magical to me, and every time there’s full moon I like to reflect upon it for a few minutes from the window. Whenever my young daughter is still awake, she will come up to me and I pick her up so we can admire the moon together. These moments are so precious to me."

"The moonphase remains to be one of my favourite complications for a watch, not in the last place because it reminds me of those wonderful and peaceful moments at home observing the full moon."

The watch

The grey anthracite dial of this Frederique Constant Classic Moonphase Manufacture combined with the blue moon phase disc, looks as peaceful as the real moon does during a starry night. Frederique Constant is able to offer a watch with this beautiful complication using an in-house developed and in-house assembled movement, for a very fair price.


The 42mm 3-part case holds a domed sapphire crystal and a display case back, revealing the inner workings of the FC-712 caliber. The two sub-dials of the moonphase and date are located at three and nine o’clock respectively. The elegant, curved dial merges seamlessly with the case and features printed roman numeral indexes and hand-polished hands. Finally, the blue crocodile-leather strap completes the look.

The FC-712 movement

The Frederique Constant Classic Moonphase Manufacture Fratello Exclusive is powered by the in-house developed calibre FC-712 automatic movement with 38 hours of power reserve. Based on the iconic FC-700 movement series from Frederique Constant, it has been redesigned in order to split the moonphase and date into two counters. Both functions are adjustable via the crown. Through the transparent caseback, the movement shows off the famous Perlage and circular Côtes de Genève decorations present on all Frederique Constant in-house calibers.
