The 26th in house movement designed, manufactured and assembled by Frederique Constant, is being used in the ladies’ Slimline Moonphase Manufacture Stars, which goes on sale this month.
The Swiss watchmaker, now owned by Citizen Watch Group, invited journalists to a hilltop observatory above the French coastal town of Nice yesterday to officially unveil the mechanical timepiece.
The watch is designed by Aletta Stas, wife of Peter Stas, who co-founded Frederique Constant, who called it “an elegant fusion of femininity and artisanship”.
The 38.8mm steel watch is offered with or without rose gold plating has 60 diamonds on the bezel
There are an additional eight diamonds used as hour markers on a star-studded black or navy blue dial with the moonphase complication at 12 o’clock.
The collection is priced at CHF 4595 (£3600).
