Like those of the Slimline Ladies’ models, this watch’s case is notable for its clean lines and understated, 1950s-inspired look. It is also, as one would expect from the watch’s name, incredibly slender, measuring less than one centimeter thick. The curved, sliver dial features hand-applied, rose-gold-plated indices. The upper half of the dial has a day-night indicator and the lower half displays the rotating tourbillon cage at the 6 o’clock position. The tourbillon serves as the seconds counter, making one complete rotation every 60 seconds.
The Slimline Tourbillon Manufacture is offered in both a polished all-stainless-steel case and also in stainless steel with an 18k rose-gold bezel. Both models have sapphire exhibition casebacks, through which the owner can glimpse the movement, and in particular, its rose-gold-plated rotor. Both come with alligator leather straps with folding buckles. Each of the 188 watches is individually numbered and presented in a wooden gift box. Prices are $33,995 for the all stainless steel model and $36,995 for the version with a gold bezel.

I bought Frederique Constant watch a few years ago and I am really happy with it.
It’s reasonably well priced for the such quality. I have heard that every Frederiqe Constant watch is hand made in Switzerland.
damn good but still damn expensive ….
