F.P. Friday and merry Christmas….

Dec 24, 2021,12:13 PM

To those celebrating. To those of you who don’t, happy holidays. I wish everyone of you that your wishes may come true. Even if the horological ones have become more difficult to achieve this year.

I’m celebrating a very casual  Christmas with my little family at the summer house. As I’m just wearing an old beater (no Journe) I’m posting what I personally think is THE most beautiful FP Journe watch I have seen.
It’s a throwback to the epic Resonance exhibition in Geneva in 2020. There where many spectacular dials on display. In fact most of those ever made. Special engravings, ruthinium ect... The one that really stole my heart was a 38 mm Resonance with a regular Rose gold dial and a well worn platinum bracelet.  The watch used to belong to the famous watch journalist Gabriel Tortella. It is now in the collection of the manufacture.

Not the most spectacular in the room,  as I said,  but it just oozes soul and character. Being well worn made it even more charming. A definite vintage character. I think the warm rose dial in combination with all that platinum gives it an otherworldly beauty. Add then the significance of being an early Resonance wrist watch and you have a true masterpiece.

Merry Christmas my friends

That could certainly be an acceptable Christmas present from you to me.

And what a watch. My true Journe love for sure, any dial so long as it’s grainy ! These bracelets change the watches so much, both the older ones and the modern / current references. It’s not something I’ve thought much about myself, but on certain watche... 

I agree. Thie Resonance is the big one.

Its a unique watch where all the elements come together. And as you say any of the grainy dials are great. Normally I would not put a Resonance on a bracelet. This one took me by surprise . You know how warm the old rose dial are. With all that platinum i...
