Sometimes, a casual visit to a watch gallery could end up being an expensive trip.

I was at a watch gallery recently identifying possible gifts for a friend to choose as a present. We were practically spoilt for choice by the many models available. The swelled crowd due to the festive season did not deter us spending time browsing and perusing the various available brands and models one after the other.

After identifying two choices for the possible present from the many Frederique Constant models displayed, the attention was then focussed on one particular Frederique Constant model that the eyes were somewhat attracted to.

Model FC-303X6B4 with its 43 mm diameter and a rose gold finishing case, a cream coloured dial and clear caseback was just mesmerising. Though the dial looked rather large, just could not resist the temptation of having the watch on the wrist. The moment it was placed on the wrist, it kind of grooved and felt fittingly at ease.

This automatic model with an FC 303 movement carries a clear dial with a date display at 3 o’clock and fitted with a genuine brown crococalf leather strap and a matching FC buckle.

The simple solution then was just to let it stay on the wrist and bring it home as a Chinese New Year’s self-present albeit a very much lighter wallet in the pocket and an out of budget expenditure...again.

This FC piece has since become my favourite least till my next new piece!
