Frederique Constant Slim Line Automatic, Exclusive for Watchuseek
In May 2012, we came into contact with Mr. Sören Hüter (aka Red hot chili) who asked us to produce a special version of our Slim Line Automatic. Mr. Hüter unfortunately has a tumor that cannot be removed by operation and which is now treated by special medication. Due to this aggressive medication, Mr. Hüter is unable to wear gold watches as gold will discolor within a very short time when a gold watch is on his wrist.
The solution was to make the FC-306V4S9 Slim Line with a stainless steel case. This unique watch was produced by the Frederique Constant Service Department and delivered to Mr. Hüter.
As many as 450 people have reacted on this special version, indeed it looks very beautiful. Mr. Hüter suggested to introduce this model to other customers and we have considered this for a while. Recently, we have been in contact with Mr. Hüter again to ask his permission to proceed with the creation of the FC-306V4S6 steel version as a unique Watchuseek exclusive.
Mr. Hüter said: "Dear Mr. Stas, it's very polite of you to ask me. It shows me that you are a true gentleman.I would be delighted if you produced this watch exclusively for Watchuseek. I think this is a very good idea! And you have also my permission to publish my story of this watch."
A dream comes true
Frederique Constant's CEO, Peter Stas said: "As it was via Watchuseek that we learned about this story, we feel it is only right to make this an exclusive Watchuseek model. The project was discussed with Ernie Romers and we are happy to propose the following":

hi there, I Have had a watch give to me by a family member, but no one in the family knows where the watch has come from, the name in the clock part says Time Chain, its also a bracelet, there is no lock on the watch as its like spring open/close? really confusing i have actually never seen a watch like it, the stamp on the back says L.Y. 1051662, any ideas?
