Now we have the Frederique Constant Peking to Paris to add to this very illustrious list of chronographs. For a watch enthusiast like myself operating on a very restrictive budget the FC PP is a welcome addition to my watch collection. It comfortably satisfies all the hallmarks of a vintage luxury chronograph. Apart from being a no date tri-compax this piece can also boast a number of other refinements; Individually numbered limited edition, in-house movement FC-396, sapphire case-back that displays a special rotor engraved with the Peking to Paris logo and a very well-constructed signed folding clasp. The Frederique Constant PP costs a mere fraction of these other more expensive chronographs yet in terms of features it is directly on par. My only issue with this piece is that the strap should have been an original crocodile leather. Nonetheless this watch is a great value purchase and an opportunity not to be missed by anyone looking for a quality dress mechanical chronograph under $2500.00
