[F.P. Journe Moderator]
Encounter with a female F.P. Journe collector.
Sadly there are too few women interested in watches. And even fewer who can be considered collectors in the true sense of the word.
Recently I had the great privilege to meet a women who had caught the FPJ bug badly. Yes, her husband also has that same bug and so they share this hobby with equal passion. There is nothing better in this world than to share what you love with those you love. I think this is the first time I’ve encountered this in such an equal manner. Needless to say I was a bit jealous.
As you can sense from these watches, they are chosen with great care. Also, as she explained, she finds great joy in designing the straps. She spends a great amount of time and attention to work with the strap maker. This woman is clearly a stickler for details. Notice the platinum stitching on the first strap and the gold leaf detail on the second.
I had such a thrill from this meeting. I hope she can inspire many more women to dive deeper in to this hobby. What a fortunate couple.
