Wow, amazing images of some really special watches here. I can’t believe what I was missing!

Anyway here’s one not seen very often here apparently — it seems to be under appreciated. Maybe because of the dial symmetry, maybe because the windows make it (in my opinion) almost Patek-ish… but the complication here is amazing. I saw a non-functioning version a few months ago in the NY boutique and fell in love with it. Of course the boutique wouldn’t give me the time of day, ha ha, (my only other Journe is a CS acquired elsewhere), so I had to pick this up second hand.

And congrats on this special FPJ, indeed not often seen but not by lack of interest. I like its particular design, it has a little bit of Sputnik in its DNA

Welcome! Great FPJ!

Thank you very much for posting this unique piece. I had recently asked why we don’t see any posts of this reference on here 🤔. Honestly, it’s so seamless to set up, and all that from the one crown, too cool. But why wasn’t the boutique willing to sell th... 

Just wasn’t willing to wait

I think the message from the boutique was basically “we’re backlogged until 2023 if you’re not an existing customer”…. I am way too much about instant gratification to wait that long.

Beautiful and welcome :)

Lots of great Journes and great watches from every other brand and watchmaker you could think of (and some you couldn’t) here. I do like this reference, but maybe I like the updated dial a bit better. The welcome from the Boutique in NY seems to be varied... 

Welcome aboard!

The Perpetuelle is a very cool watch and I really like this clover dial.

The QP is pretty amazing. It’s my first perpetual calendar. I hate pusher adjusters so I’ve always avoided the complication, but FPJ solved that one for me!
