F.P. Friday - honey moon is continuing…..

Jun 17, 2022,11:22 AM

Morning picture of my beloved Optimum. Today I’m working from home so I have a bit of time to try out straps.

The Barenia is still my favorite but \this grey calf works as well, I think.

Let’s see your F.P. Journe watches and mark the beginning of the weekend.

I wish you all a happy weekend 🤗

I’m sharing my PADI Baby Turtle, a watch from a few years back. It’s my wrist partner for the last week or so. Now if I had an Elegante then maybe the Baby Turtle gets retired (or has competition) ! Glad to see you are still enjoying the honeymoon, I’m su...  

Heresy 😱

We must get you an Elegante, Jay! Seriously, I like this PADI! The kind of watch we also need sometimes. Enjoy your weekend, my friend.

Hi Christian, stunning combo there. Is the Barena strap an OEM FPJ Strap? Here in japan, they only have alligator fpj straps...

This is a custom strap but Journe makes a calf strap for the Tourbillon Vertical

I would get in touch with Jean Rousseau who can make straps to exact Journe specs. They supply FPJ with custom straps. Also A Collected Man offer some very nice looking straps for Journe watches. I never tried these though.

Thank you Christian, the issue when I purchase from JR (and I know they make the straps for FPJ here in Japan) for some reason they will not include the curved tabbed spring bar...

They did it for me in London without any problems. Ive heard it before but it seems erratic.

Here are some examples:
