New version FP Journe Chronograph Rattrapante

Sep 09, 2020,04:22 AM

As soon as I heard that FPJ decided to dispense with the rubber inserts on the bracelet and the ‘bumper’ and rubber crown I knew that this was the sports Journe I wanted and would hopefully add to my collection. That day arrived on Monday when I collected it from the Great team at the Hong Kong boutique who have always been good to me. 

I had meant to get some better photos with the Leica but I’m too impatient so forgive me for uploading these poorer quality phone pictures, I promise to get some better ones. I thought that whilst photos of the rose gold and platinum new versions are out there this might be one of the first titanium versions to be delivered so I would post a few now.

I’m glad personally that I waited as for me it is more aesthetically pleasing. It’s on my wrist as I type this and won’t be going anywhere any time soon!

So nice

I have my eyes on this one as well. I tried it recently and I just love it. Im in the same camp as you, who prefer the watch without the rubber ends. However that is a real dividing point. Thank you for the pictures. I really appreciate it. ...  

agree re it being a dividing point!

the rattrapante is a favorite as well , however i would love to own the RG version

the RG is stunning.

in fact, I'd happily own any of the three. I opted for this for its lightness and for the fact that I have RG FPJ already in the form of the 10th Anniversary HK Centigraphe so wanted something more casual.

Very nice - Wearing my rubber bumpered on as well today

I see that the pushers, crown and the bumper at 9 o'clock are now polished? ...

Congratulations, Gus7!

I also like the bumpers. Heres mine ...  

With the bracelet, I can go either way but...

I think I like the 9 o'clock bumper and crown in black and the pushers in matte finish. Either way, both versions are beautiful and congrats to Gus.👍 ...  

I think that a balance

Wow congrats! Personal favourite of three

I think the dark metal and chronograph cutouts complete the sporty look. Wear in good health! P.S. speaking of FPJ HK, I am trying to obtain an elegante 48 to mark an occassion but sadly been told to wait 2+ years. The growth in demand for FPJ in the regi... 

thank you!

and yes, I have a few friends looking for the Elegant and the Titalyte. Hot property right now!

Without the rubber inserts I also like it more. Which is the water resistance? It is an information that I can't find anywhere. Best, R

I should support my version, but

Just notice that FP abandon rubber strap user without sufficient stock. That makes me VERY worry about mine. I believe a qualified high horology brand should not do it to fans and customers. Very disappointing .
