It looks fantastic

Jul 09, 2019,21:13 PM
 

I met Gino Cukrowicz (Ginotti) some weeks ago. He was wearing his untreated Ti on a bright yellow. It looked sooo cool - I wanted one on the spot! 

He told he had just come back from Bali where he had worn this one during his entire trip and had not been able to take it off after coming home. Everyone loves their Elegante, it seems. 
I so wish we would see a traditional mechanical movement in that Ti case. I’m still hoping, even if Mr Journe said it’s not going to happen. I think the case would be the true FPJ “sports watch”. Even more than the current Line Sport.

It's just so comfortable and perfect for the summer weather. Been neglecting my mechanical FPJ's - will need to change that soon! ...  

post pics! [nt]

As much as I do like it, and I’ve tried it on a few times in the last month...

....I can’t get myself to justify it. I have not managed to differentiate this (or Seiko’s Spring Drive, which I know is very different) from other (and much cheaper) non mechanical watches which my head screams limited life span and which I swore I’d nev... 

Yes, you are correct. But the heart is non mechanical.

Do you think about it the same way as the mechanical watches insofar as they will always be around, always repairable?

to be honest... it never crossed my mind

I was more focused on the user experience and the innovation. I really enjoy wearing a Journe I don't have to worry about, that looks good, comfortable and light. That would be a good question to ask FP regarding the Elegante's long-term "lifespan." Knowi... 

I always think of the old Accutron when I see pictures of the movement.

I think it would probably last many years. “Forever” is difficult to know. I don’t know much about electronics.

We had dinner with him and FP in Silicon Valley. He was in fact wearing an Elegante. Here’s a pic of the watch pile! ...  

That is a pile that really aligns with my taste in watches - just wonderful pieces

I have a crush on the Havana with the blue moonphase also. Something about those two colors together that works really well. ...  

Elégante is my first Journe!

Love it absolutely - light at wrist. Apparently from the website this journe could last for 18 years.. after 18 years... who knows. I was told they have a team specifically dedicated to work on this piece so wouldn’t worry too much about the lifespan. ...  

Def a watch a need to add in my collection one day

Great looking FPJ and like you say a perfect daily on these summer days

I fell in love with the elegante two years when my bro in law bought one and I tried it on. I had to get my head around the idea of it been a quartz watch but the more I learned about the brand the more I liked it . Turning point was when I visited the fa...
