I've heard it!

I am no connoisseur when it comes to the tone of chiming watches but I can certainly tell you the sound was *faint*. More so than any other minute repeater I've heard.

Here is an other I have tried many times. The Repetition Souveraine from 2008. I love it for its stealth quality and very slim and elegant steel case. Some say it’s not the best sounding repeater out there but it is certainly not bad either. I would love ...  

The repeater is an amazing watch!

This is what I’m wearing And what I’m wishing for... HAGWE ...  

Fist time I see the Orange Sport in red gold. that looks sooo good with the bracelet.

Simple, cool and with a certain elegance. Very, very nice. The T10 is a grail piece of mine. It’s absolutely stunning. I love it’s simple gestalt and then you turn it over and see one of the most beautiful Tourbillons o have ever seen. stunning! Great pic... 

Yes isnt it. Its such a classy little elegant watch

I love the blue accents on the dial. HAGWE!

This is a lovely one! Love the dial layout and symmetry

This is priced out of my range now; 6 months ago, when the cost was substantially lower, I thought about it but I was too slow. ...  

I have the exact same situation ...

I was hesitating, Then things exploded. I love this one on the Pt bracelet. It suits this piece. HAGWE my dear friend. C

Why have they gone up so much in such a little time?

The CS tourbillon was half the price they go for a year ago.

CS tourbillon?

Such a beautiful masterpiece

A true grail imho

The CB is my only FPJ, which I’m very grateful to have. Years later, it’s still my favorite watch.

 By: BigAppleBill : November 20th, 2020-12:50
If I were forced to keep only one watch from my collection it would be the CB. I would love to have other FPJs, but availability, expense and reality begin to enter that equation. Here are some others I would choose. Who knows? Perhaps someday... With reg...  

I agree. I love that watch

You are a lucky man - the CB is such nice piece to wear.

 By: ChristianDK : November 21st, 2020-13:23
a simple and enormously strong watch. I do love your candidates though. Especially the Optimum and the Vagabondage. HAGWE

Last week was a wish for something that didn’t exist (yet), this week let’s go with an existing watch (just about given there are only 10).

 By: Jay (Eire) : November 20th, 2020-13:00
Another vote here for the T10. I prefer this to the T30 because of the dial and the case material. 10 pieces to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Journe’s first boutique (Tokyo). I chose this photo specifically as I recall when I first saw this story / vi...  

That piece is on a whole different level.

 By: BigAppleBill : November 21st, 2020-07:54
And I agree, that strap choice is spot on!

Yes, isnt it! Out of this world!

Ive watched that video 100 times. what a cool guy and with some amazing pieces

 By: ChristianDK : November 21st, 2020-13:25
The T10 is an absolute grail watch for me. Not ever likely to happen but it os just so incredibly beautiful! great illustration. Wishing you a great weekend Jay!
