Yes, the grey is not just grey

 By: ChristianDK : September 30th, 2019-07:47
more like a warm taupe grey. sometimes it can seem golden. I really love this color more and more.

You can try Jean Rousseau

 By: ChristianDK : October 1st, 2019-13:17
This one was ordered in their shop in London but made in Paris.

Sorry to bother you Christian...

 By: BlueIn2Red : November 8th, 2019-06:30
... 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..

 By: ChristianDK : November 8th, 2019-06:38
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


 By: BlueIn2Red : November 10th, 2019-14:58
No problem, thanks anyway - Iโ€™ll just visit their store and take the picture.

So beautiful!

 By: mrds : September 30th, 2019-03:04
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

 By: ChristianDK : September 30th, 2019-07:48
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.

cool one Christian...you got to prepare for the new resonance so you'll have the 'full set' of it :-)

 By: mahesh : September 30th, 2019-04:52
i personally like the Pt + Grey combo, just goes below the radar...very understated elegance. Best, mahesh.,

Me to, my friend

 By: ChristianDK : September 30th, 2019-07:52
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

Thank you so much, Capt :-) [nt]

Perfect on your wrist

 By: sham1 : September 30th, 2019-05:30
and perfect for your wrist!

Thank you for your kind words, Sham :-)

 By: ChristianDK : September 30th, 2019-07:54
I have a big wrist and the 40mm fits me quite well, I think. I truly love wearing this watch. It never gets old

You are so fortunate Chrisitan

 By: sham1 : September 30th, 2019-09:36
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 :-)

 By: ChristianDK : September 30th, 2019-10:59
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!

 By: sham1 : September 30th, 2019-11:43
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 have this idea thaat a watch should be flat and not too big (or small) so it "becomes one with the wrist"

 By: ChristianDK : September 30th, 2019-13:16
Italian shirt tailors have this idea that a shirt should be like a "second skin" close to the body and to your shape. I find this concept inspiring. and thats how I like to think of a watch. It should be "One with the person" who wears it. Both in terms o... 

Well said! Since I started watch collecting Iโ€™ve constantly talked to my friends

 By: Tlph : September 30th, 2019-20:55
That I want my watches to be/feel as โ€œinvisibleโ€ as possible on my wrist. Some questioned me that it def loses the purpose of a watch but like you explicitly put - watch is like a second skin just like suits! And this โ€œinvisibilityโ€ has nothing (or at lea... 


 By: ChristianDK : October 1st, 2019-13:19
I think I prefer the 5711 in steel since it just feels more balanced,


 By: sham1 : September 30th, 2019-18:24
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

 By: ChristianDK : October 1st, 2019-13:22
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

 By: ChristianDK : September 30th, 2019-13:07
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 sounds like a plan Christian!

 By: sham1 : September 30th, 2019-18:23
Definitely. And I thought I was the only one who felt that a watch should be at one with my wrist.

Very beautiful!

 By: M4 : September 30th, 2019-06:32
The dial is sublime. M4

Thank you so much, my friend :-)I really enjoy it!

 By: ChristianDK : September 30th, 2019-07:57
I hope all is well at your end

All fine here my friend ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿค—

 By: Watchonthewrist : September 30th, 2019-08:42
Thanks .

Absolutely to die for watch. ๐Ÿ‘ [nt]

 By: cory : September 30th, 2019-11:31
Are you getting ready for the new one in 2020? Iโ€™m excited to see a new design.

Thank so much. I love it so much ๐Ÿ˜Š

 By: ChristianDK : September 30th, 2019-13:51
Yes, it is super exciting what will happen next year. The Resonance is probably my favorite Journe. Best to start saving up ๐Ÿ˜‰

I can only agree.

 By: ChristianDK : October 1st, 2019-13:11
In fact one of my favorite watches ever

Wow! I really like this combo .

 By: ZSHSZ : September 30th, 2019-21:24
Out of all strap variations that I saw I think this is it !

That is really nice of you. Thank you ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

 By: ChristianDK : October 1st, 2019-13:15
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.

Drool worthy

Fantastic shot, strap, watch.
