Resonance : Up Close

Oct 08, 2020,18:31 PM

A few more macros as we roll into the weekend.  This is an old white gold dialed Resonance.  These pictures allow you to see some of that graininess these original run of dials developed.  It’s something which I wish could be replicated today as it adds something to the watch.  Of course there were some downsides to this too, many of the dials (mine included) did experience some oxidation/marking.  

Yes, I didn’t wind it or set the time.  Sorry, that was sloppy of me.

Really can’t describe, in words, how good the dial looks

With all that “graininess.” Excellent shots....

To be fair, it’s often not the obvious when just looking at it.

But with the light, or taking a closer look, it’s right there.

I like that, sometimes, you don’t want certain

“Features” to always be in your face...

Wow! I love your close-up shots!

And they give me even more appreciation for FPJ pieces.

Thank you. More to come. [nt]

I used to like these FPJ before...

 By: Mike H : October 8th, 2020-22:41 I love them (not only because of you, but it helps 🤪)

Don’t worry I shall not put the responsibility on you 😉

Because I am not sure I shall be able to pull the trigger on this one even if I love it. My recent acquisitions do not allow me more allocation for watches. On top of that I still have other ones in my shopping list also so...

For this one the train has left the station for 99% of us, I certainly would not be looking at this watch these days.

And always good to have a shopping list, on to the next one !

I can only agree...

For this one the train has left recently but so rapidly for sure... There are however still some other nice reasonably unreasonable options such as the CS (not CB) or the Elegante. I am seriously contemplating at least one of these options...

The Elegante has left as well

They no longer put people on the list in Paris, as it is already too long.

This is all rather unfortunate for those who can’t get to see these watches in person.

It’s hard to buy a watch without seeing it, and it’s especially hard if you are new to the scene. Do the Boutiques still carry the dummy pieces so people can actually see the watches? I think people can understand (reluctantly) having to order a watch and... 

Excellent shots

I've never realised how "rough" the crown looked. Wonder why he chose to have it finished this way rather than something more refined

It is very rough, up that close. Even to the naked eye you can see this.

I’m not sure if this is also the same for other pieces of the same production time.

You have something truly rare! Great pictures, Jay!

This grain is one of this watch secrets that one only understand with close inspection and seeing it play in natural light. Even if I love mine and the taupe dial, this dial is a notch above.

Thanks Christian. [nt]
