François-Paul Friday is finally here....

Jun 12, 2020,00:10 AM

We love Friday here in the FPJ forum because it’s a day to think about the pleasures of life. It’s the time of week to share and see some of the watches we love. It’s time to think about weekend, about wine, family and friends...

Please join us in sharing your FPJ watch and wish everyone a happy weekend.

I stole a few moments this morning to play with the loupe system. A fun gadget I just acquired quite recently. Since I was switching to the CB I gave that a try. It’s kind of hot or miss with the LS but here are a couple of the decent ones.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Warm thoughts to you all

Nice shot!

If you don’t I am wondering why the bezel in fact the entire case of your watch looks polished. Is this the new offer from FPJ? Thank you and HAGWE 🥂 Jen This is mine.. the “standard” brush version. 😉 ...  

I think it is because he picked the 40 mm

Yours is 48. None the less, superpower. A watch for weekend and fun. HAGWE

It was designed for ladies but I clearly see it as a unisex model

If you have a smaller wrist it makes perfect sense.

It does work better for smaller wrists

 By: rnaden : June 16th, 2020-00:39
And I personally prefer smaller watches as they tend to sit a lot more comfortably for long weeks at a time. The biggest outward difference is the bezel and the screws which are on the 48mm version, as well as the minute numerals which doesn’t exist on th... 

Yes, I agree.

 By: ChristianDK : June 16th, 2020-01:00
I have a bigger than average wrist. The 48 is better for me. I actually prefer it without the screws but I can see why he put them there. The problem I have stumbled in to, though, was as I was putting down my order, I need an extra long strap and it turn... 

Your Bleu looks very blue today.

I like it


 By: Mikesr  : June 12th, 2020-08:03
Mine sits in safe most of the time. I wear my octa sport, and perpetual calendar mostly.

Let me break from the Bleu...and wander a little.

 By: Jay (Eire) : June 12th, 2020-11:46
Mike used to be very worried about this bracelet scratching a case. Thankfully, never had an issue. Have a good weekend all. Not too much vino Christian! ...  

I’m still a little worried.

 By: TheMadDruid : June 12th, 2020-12:55
But I trust your judgment.

LOL [nt]

 By: ChristianDK : June 12th, 2020-13:01

Oh, how I love those wondering watches

 By: ChristianDK : June 12th, 2020-12:57
Every time I see a VB2 I think of you, my dear friend. Oh about the wine. That’s definitely too late ;-) drank a nice Bourgogne. Now, I’m moving on to a small local whiskey distillery. Top clas imho ;-) have great weekend, buddy

I’ll pile onto the Bleus...

 By: Journe1304 : June 12th, 2020-11:59
Enjoy your weekends, all! ...  

Oh, yes!! And a super picture!

 By: ChristianDK : June 12th, 2020-12:58
Where is this taken. HAGWE.


 By: Journe1304 : June 12th, 2020-13:13
This was taken in Manhattan in March, right before the lockdown. Sadly, I haven’t actually worn it out in the wild since then. But I’m hopeful that things will recover soon and I can strap it back on again soon with purpose!

Ah, lovely Manhattan. I asked bc I thought it might be.

 By: ChristianDK : June 12th, 2020-13:18
I wish nothing more than this damned thing to pass so we can get back, (or as close as possible)


 By: TheMadDruid : June 12th, 2020-12:56
Have a great weekend.

Superb. Huge congratulations 🎈🍾 Im so thrilled that you have jumped in, Tony. I hope you will enjoy it....

A stunning watch, Ed. This one never gets old.

Christian have you heard anymore about the delivery of the new resonance?...Jim ...  

Yes, they are already rolling out of the manufacture

 By: ChristianDK : June 18th, 2020-12:46
So many orders they won’t be able to produce what has been ordered by now in 2020. Amazing pictures, my friend. Hope all is well with you.
