Sorry to bother you Christian...
... but do you happen to know/remember the colour name Jean Rousseau used for this strap? I really like it and would like to order one, but I can't find a similar colour on the JR bespoke site. I could probably go in with your picture and ask of course......
You are absolutely not bothering me..
Im dont know from memory. I will take a look over the weekend, if I can find the order slip - but I dont remember if I tossed it. I will write you a PM, if I find it - no promises though
No problem, thanks anyway - I’ll just visit their store and take the picture.
I am undecided which dial color I love best on the Resonance. Yellow may have a slight edge, but I'm fascinated by the stealthy grey one. And the rose gold of course is not too bad either.... Hmmmm... all yummie stuff!! Best, Daniel
I agree daniel
The golden is amazing and spectacular. I would love to add one. This one is more discrete. However, I rella love it and perhaps it is more versatile.
Me to, my friend
I prefer it over the Black label. I think the contrast is just right with the small dials. This one never gets old. Best Christian
You are so fortunate Chrisitan
to have a proper sized owrist to wear almost any watch in today's market. I was actually going to ask you if your Resonance was 38mm and I am glad I did not because 40mm watches were made for you!
Well yes an no :-)
Because there are so many vintage pieces I love that just look small on me. Also I favor dress or fine watches over sportswatches. My sweet spot is 38-40 mm. I can easily wear 42mm but I dont like that size any more. In fact Im thinking about selling ever...
Christian, you took the words right out of my mouth!
Seriously, not too thick, 38 to 40mm (okay maybe for me it is more 36 to 38mm! ) and a fetish for dress watches! I have been meeting quite a few purists who are buying everything I do not buy so it is refreshing to meet someone who shares similar tastes a...
I think I prefer the 5711 in steel since it just feels more balanced,
I think the lugs have a lot to do with whether a watch fits well. Breguets for me are gorgeous but their lugs are a deal breaker.
This is so true
A feature of the Journe lugs is how they turn 90 degrees downward. I think this helps on smaller wrist. You are not the first to notice this issue with the Breguet Lugs. Sadly p. I do think that they are beautiful though.
if my wrists where smaller Im sure i would be the same size span
I find a lot of attractive watches that are below 38 but its just not great on my wrist. for vintage I feel different. I could go as low as 34mm - thats just a different look. I always need a XL strap. My wrist is 20,5 cm but a very round/oval shape - so ...
That is really nice of you. Thank you 😃
I was a bit excited it it would be to little contrast when I ordered it. The color s much closer to the dial in reality than in this poor iPhone picture. I have to say I was really pleased when I put it on.
