A Gift for My Wife

After procrastinating for some time after the birth of our first baby, I finally get down to buying a watch for my beloved wife (who has given us a beautiful & naughty baby girl!).
We headed down to Nanking Watch at Peninsula Shopping Centre. She was about to say "Yes" to a half gold Oris Pointer Date (naturally, as I am an Oris collector) when the staff brought her to the Frederique Constant display showcase and introduced the Frederique Constant Open Heart (FC303 - 25 Jewels) to her.
The FC303 is much bigger at 34mm compared to conventional ladies size of 24mm and hence the wrist presence is more. The black croc leather strap enhances the dress factor of this timepiece. Classic Roman numerals with textured dial layout is timeless. The centre of the dial is an elipse textured recess giving depth and an asymetrical feel to the overall appearance. I replaced the pin buckle with a depoyant clasp for secured wearing and removing of the watch. Her other watches are a Fortis Handwinder, a Tissot PR50 Quartz and a Seiko 5M43 Kinetic. Now with this addition, she has started her mini collection, still lacking an Eco-drive though to complete the range of calibers.
My wife is a happy camper, hope she writes a review soon (just kiddin')...
