My first Journe

Nov 15, 2023,04:35 AM

Yes, his personality leaves a lot to be desired.  Yes, the finishing is mediocre.  Yes, the resonance functions questionably with the wrist in motion.

I resisted for so long.  And then one day, this Resonance knocked on my door.  I almost didn’t answer.  But then I thought, how can I truly be a judge of something if I never own it?

The minute I put this watch on my wrist I understood very clearly that this was a very special object that spoke its own language.  A language that I had never heard before.  

And I love it.

Did the boutique finally come through with an allocation? This dial configuration is one of the more interesting and eye catching to me. Wear it in best of health.

Huge congratulations, it looks great on you.

I hope you will like it. The parking meter is a really special and unusual Journe. As you say, when it’s on the wrist - that is when we know. Wear it in the best of health.

Thank you so much

This variant of the Resonance and the Octa Reserve de Marche were the first two Journes that I fell in love with. I know already that I love it

I’m very happy to hear that.

I feel exactly the same. So complex and yet simple at the same time. Inspiring and mind boggling. ….And please notice how well it wears on the wrist. Slim and elegant. You can wear it for months.

Congratulations. What an entry point into Journes world.

I am sure that more than 80% of all the watches out there have even much more mediocre finishing 😁

Thank you!

Finishing has become too emphasized in our collecting community in my opinion. There are other aspects of a watch that are much more interesting to me.

Agree. As I ironically stated if Journe has so mediocre finishing

a whole bunch out there must be a lot crappier.

I agree with your pov.

Even if I appreciate and admire great finishing there are more important and interesting aspects.

Looks great on you

I first saw this variant in a mark Cho article. Very neat

Yes, it was an unexpected addition

Welcome to the dark side.

The Parking Meter is an unusual iteration, one I like a lot too. I feel like I used to see a lot more of them but I can’t place one today in collections of any friends (maybe that means they are just in the safe somewhere). To me, to have one Journe in a ...
