François-Paul Friday is now - so pop by ...

Sep 11, 2020,00:43 AM

Time for our weekend tradition. Please post your FPJ watch.

Today I’m wearing a new acquisition. The Elegante in Polished  titanium. It just landed yesterday so it’s still very early days. I love the way it sits on the wrist. Extremely comfortable and light. This morning when I put it on, it performed it’s little dance for me of setting the hands to the correct time. It just is a lot of fun to watch and a very charming feature.

I wish everyone here a happy weekend!
Best regards

Looks beautiful with that strap. So much more restrained. Wear it in good health, my friend.

Thank you for your kind comments 😊

I am mr restrained 😂 I like it a bit played down but I’m thinking of getting some brighter colors for summer as well. HAGWE my friend.

Nice catch! I’d just enquired about the polished titanium with my AD this week and was told that it has quite a waitlist too. Here’s what I will have for this weekend. Enjoy the weekend! ...  

Oh, you lucky lucky man. The Nacre dials are sooo nice!

The watch is super accurate too. In 11 days, it has not deviated a second.

I feel the Elegante is well and truly past the point of incredulity by collectors, at least FPJ collectors. It’s a beautiful design, luxurious treatment, and yet another work of art from the master himself. I absolutely love it and hope to add one of my o...  

Yours is super. I prefer the old diameter.

 By: ChristianDK : September 11th, 2020-06:41
In the rubber strap its perfect. Regarding the rubber bits, my best guess is thats its about a 50/50 division of who likes it and who dont. Its just a preference thing. Hang on to yours. I have a feeling these are growing a lot in popularity. I you would ... 

Current is 44, right? What was the old one? [nt]

The black Optimum is so crisp! It’s such a great watch! Have a great weekend, my friend 😊

Very nice Christian.

My wife and I were considering a shared one late last year, the smaller case (which suits me fine). In the end we didn’t do it as she wasn’t completely sold on it.

It’s not a bad idea though. Of course she should be in on it.

 By: ChristianDK : September 11th, 2020-16:17
I belSham used to have the small version. Thank you , my friend 😊🙏

You are more than forgiven! What an awesome picture!

 By: ChristianDK : September 11th, 2020-16:19
Every time you post the Resonance with this strap I am so impressed. And I love that blue on theCB even if I don’t think I could pull it off. But wow. What picture. Wishing you a great weekend, Jay!


 By: stabilizer : September 11th, 2020-18:29

Looks fantastic. Especially with that grey sweater!

You could be a model for Brunello Cucinelli!
