Octa lune rose gold havana availability

Oct 06, 2021,17:28 PM

So i decided to buy the Octa lune rose gold Havana after trying it for couple of weeks… went to the Dubai store ( since grey will coat 50% more than list) and they said forget about being on any list for Havana… literally the guy there said they stopped taking any wait list for Havana since Jan. He does not know if the Havana dial will continue. Platinum with white dial have a 3 years wait😂

So i wanted to ask the guys in Europe or US, do you know if getting the Lune Havna there is a possibility? Just curious to know of this is an option. Thanks for advising.

Crazy times!

10 boutiques. FPJ makes a total of @ 900 mechanical watches / year. + a few hundred Elegnte. It’s a manufacturer but small. All sold out for the next few years.

900?! Not to quibble (but here I am quibbling!) I have a feeling it is less. It was ~750 in 2018, iirc, due to more complex pieces sold.

That's my vague misremembering from the conversation with the head of a boutique. Definitely less in 2020, obviously. It was suggested I think of it this way: FPJ has a limited number of watchmaker hours per year for production. If it's all repeaters, the... 

Yes! 😉

my message said @ = short for around. Thats what they say officially.

in reality, one year it can be less due to making more complex pieces as you say. FP has told me he will not go above this number the future. Its a cap. If market is buying more complex pieces, then thats what he makes. Number drops. Production is now pla... 

Yes it must be pretty ideal.

It's the kind of thing you expect from a one man atelier.

Or even a couple of brothers. It just seems incomprehensible that a brand that makes as many as 800-900 watches a year could become a special order house and yet here it is. Pre-pandemic, used watches were discounted and new watches could be bought on a s... 

Good questionm Mike

I miss the days, no doubt. But looking forward and after the fact …“to be or not to be” ?

You’re correct, Pirate Cat.
