MUSCAT: The wonders of the moon, lustrous yellow gold, gleaming mother of pearl and sparkling diamonds…the exceptional watchmakers and talented engineers at Swiss watchmaker, Frederique Constant, have combined all these elements – and more – into a single new collection that is sure to make any lady’s heart race.

The 2014 Slimline Moonphase Ladies Collection features no fewer than six brand new models, each more beautiful than the last and is now available at Khimji’s Watches – the one stop destination for luxury in Oman.

Every model in this collection is powered by the FC-206 quartz caliber five-jewel movement. The 30mm steel case will attract the eye with its ultra-feminine appearance. The dial itself is stunning mother of pearl, protected by diamond-hard sapphire crystal, and speaking of diamonds, the hour indexes include no fewer than eight hand applied diamonds (0.02ct). The delicate hands are hand-polished to a rich sheen, and the moonphase display is located at the 6 o’clock position.

The technical wizards at Frederique Constant have also designed the watch so that all functions (hours, minutes and moonphase) are adjustable through a single crown, and in spite of their petite appearance, every watch in the range is water resistant to three atmospheres.

Two of the models are presented with yellow gold plated steel cases, one comes with a shiny beige leather strap, while another features a yellow gold plated bracelet with seven rows of slim gold links. The remaining models have highly polished stainless steel cases, yet once again, each version is completely unique. One model comes with a shiny, dark blue leather strap, while the another version is presented with a gleaming stainless steel seven-row bracelet.
