It’s already time for François-Paul Friday - jump in....

Jul 17, 2020,03:12 AM

I can’t believe it’s already Friday and so it is the last weekend of my summer holidays. However, I love our Friday tradition so, please join us and wish the forum a happy weekend by posting your FPJ watch.

Inspired by all the talk of the CS in recent posts, I had to make this my choice for today. A watch I love dearly. 

Have a wonderful weekend, friends.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks! I can't quite tell...

Here’s my submission for journe Friday

I am a big fan of the Calendrier line ...  

Me too! It really has that unmistakable Journe DNA

 By: ChristianDK : July 17th, 2020-15:51
tanks for sharing an other beauty in your superb collection! Wish you a happy weekend

Oh, Im jealous! One of the best, IMO

Have a great weekend!

I’ll try and shake it up with a bit of color.

 By: TheMadDruid : July 17th, 2020-06:51
A great weekend to all! ...  

Thats a beutiful selection of colors, Mike!

 By: ChristianDK : July 17th, 2020-15:53
I think, especially the blue, you have mounted on the "redhead" suits it superbly. Have a great weekend, dear friend!

Checking in

Super cool. It says "SUMMER"! I am in love with that strap.

Have a great weekend, my friend

Just yesterday I was looking on the FPJ website...

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : July 17th, 2020-07:59
Trying to compare the looks between platinum and rose gold... ...  

Left... LOL!

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : July 17th, 2020-10:43
Not a huge fan of red/rose gold and I think the white dial/blue hands combo is better suited to the platinum case. For the gold, I feel this combo is better: ...  

Better Red than dead.

 By: TheMadDruid : July 17th, 2020-13:43
Am I aging myself?

I really do think this dial is better on both PT and RG.

 By: Jay (Eire) : July 17th, 2020-14:10
“Better” is obviously very subjective but I’m thinking more contemporary and more versatile too.

I meant better to be a Communist than dead.

 By: TheMadDruid : July 17th, 2020-14:29
You’re the one who said you’re leaning left.

LOL! Not sure about that 😂 [nt]

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : July 17th, 2020-14:35

Great choice

 By: ChristianDK : July 17th, 2020-15:58
If you ever think about getting in to FPJ, this is a great way to start! Dont think of it as entry level. It is a superb manual wind chronometer. have a great weekend best Christian


 By: Jurry : July 17th, 2020-14:10
Unfortunately I have no FPJ in my collection but nonetheless I hope that you got very drunk on this last vacation day Must admit was little surprised as I thought a man of your capabilities surely doesn’t have to work anymore haha Good luck Monday in the ... 

HAHA :-) LOL thank you for your kind words, dear friend!

 By: ChristianDK : July 17th, 2020-16:04
Trust me, I have havent missed the drinks during this vacation. Luckily I have friends I can trust for that ;-) Still one more dinner tomorrow, so I can keep that promise to !!! Wishing you a great weekend, dear Jurry thanks for chiming in here, my friend... 

I wouldn't either if I had one...🤣 [nt]

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : July 17th, 2020-14:14

this just looks so right, Ed! FP really nailed it with this one.

 By: ChristianDK : July 17th, 2020-16:09
I especially love it in this gestalt, with the white platinum against the purple dial. It has a simplicity and purity but the watch just pops in a really elegant way! Enjoy you weekend and this beautiful watch, my friend Best Christian

Journes and friend !

 By: Jay (Eire) : July 17th, 2020-14:13
Have a good weekend all. And to Christian, sorry to hear your summer holidays are coming to an end. The consolation may be you are in a part of the world where the long summer days will continue for a while yet. It’s one of those things I miss about home....  

I like them 👍 [nt]

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : July 17th, 2020-14:17

Thank you. [nt]

Clowns to the left of me

 By: TheMadDruid : July 17th, 2020-14:31
Jokers to the right...Wait! It’s in the middle!

It's so hard to keep this smile from my face, losing control, yeah, I'm all over the place..

 By: Jay (Eire) : July 17th, 2020-18:51
Perhaps describes my collecting ! How’s the weather in Puerto del Backdeça?

🥵 [nt]

 By: TheMadDruid : July 18th, 2020-02:06

What a stunning shot, dear friend :-)

 By: ChristianDK : July 17th, 2020-16:17
All three so different and original but I also sense a common spirit. That you for you nice words. You are completely right about our summer nights. I just had the most beautiful drive tonight after visiting friends in the contry side. The landscape was d... 

Yes, they look good together.

 By: Jay (Eire) : July 17th, 2020-18:53
I was thinking that when looking at some of the pictures I snapped. Perhaps the Clown (or the Joker) would appeal to F.P. in some ways.

Christian, in your opinion, what's the best way to go about acquiring a 38mm CS Platinum?

 By: Robert65 : July 18th, 2020-01:34
The smaller 38mm CS platinum (guilloche dial) rarely come available in the regular (chrono24, crown&caliber, watchbox, etc) grey market sites. I love to receive some advice on this elusive search! Best, Robert

Hi Robert - not easy

 By: ChristianDK : July 18th, 2020-06:48
As you say they are rare on the market. Here are my best ideas. 1) post a “want to buy” ad here on the sales board. 2) Watch auctions closely. 3) leave a message with some of the dealers you trust, that you are looking for this piece. These often know wha...
