Frederique Constant Moonphase Men's watch

This was a watch that I bought once I saw it Art Deco Dial design when I Visited the Shop at Kowloon Tong Shopping arcade 14 years ago. The Layout and Design pleased me at that time, and even today, Frank Muller and Roger Dubuis is trying to Apply similar Roman figure design on their dials. During that time, the size was just right, but if using today's eyes to measure watch size, it is a bit too small. Today I went to order a thicker strap to make the watch a bit larger. It never tell lies about time as it was running Swiss Quartz movement. It was quite a good time piece when One day you find you have fed up with the R, P, A, C , V and P...Try this " FC" ...Fredrique Constant.
It was taken together with the Ranger II, so that you can see the Size!

I preferred roman numerals than the traditional numbers.

Hi Loafers,

Me too, it is a classic and that draws us to the Art Deco way of displaying time.
That is why many watches employ this as the basic design on the dial. Like Cartier, Roger Dubuis, Frank Muller...etc...
