What is the difference between the SW200-1 that this is based on and the regular SW-200?

Is the SW200-1 a higher grade maybe?

SW200-1 is the newer variation with small improvements.

Are Fredrique Constant watches any good? I like the looks but I want to hear from some of the men on this site if I should trust the mechanism inside or not. Thank you in advance. Great site by the way!

I have had my FC Classic Index (with the FC-303/Sellita mvmt) for about a year and I love it. It works really well. As a brand they offer great value. If you are looking for an entry level Swiss timepiece from a real watch making company, you can’t go wrong.

FC is a well-regarded Swiss manufacturer using in-house movement State design and build. Some of them are less expensive watches will run under a thousand to well over $300,000 for the tourbillion models. I have one of the Classics, because I wanted a gold dress watch with an amazing dial. Check out jomashop or FC website and you’ll see what kind of models this company produces.

If Sellita is anything like Seiko, movement updates usually involve increasing the number of interchangeable parts to reduce costs…. lol

Is it normal for it to be more difficult to wind this movement on a FC Classic watch?

It looks like it’s a Sellita SW200-1 movement. I have watches with that movement and none of them are more difficult to wind, but I did have an ETA before that needed “broken in” before it was smooth to wind. Can you say more about it? Is it a new watch? What does it feel like to wind it up? Does it run well? Just trying my best to help.
