Update, neither the Community Nor my girlfriend helped me

Oct 05, 2019,10:01 AM

I went Back to the Boutique today. Pretty much all of you told me to buy it. My Last Hope was my girlfriend. She doesn't Like Most of my watches and I had hoped that she would tell me to stay away from this one. But even she liked it and she told me to get it. So I decided to order one. Attached a wristshot from today. Now it's time to wait until i can Pick it Up.

No thank to all of you for Not helping me to resist ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚

Well, at least it seems to look good (right size) on your wrist.

I also prefer the contrast the rubber brings to the watch. Without it, the watch (in all metals) just seems too formal to me. Looking forward to the pictures when it arrives. It might be the first one here, or at least I donโ€™t recall seeing anyone regular...

...I believe Journe has jumped the shark, lost the way, not half the man he used to be.

Looks great on your wrist. I remember trying one in the Miami Boutique when they were in Bal Harbor. Very tempting, had it next to my centigraph. Unfortunately, I could't afford it.

You've learned something, my friend.

You've learned never to ask this Community to give you reasons not to buy a watch. This Community is incapable of suggesting reasons not to buy a watch. This Community has been Vladded. This cannot be denied. Just enjoy that rattrapante. In the future loo...

IMHO It is one of my most 3 awesome modern rattrapante. I give you one tip that most of the time will save you from buying one specific watch. Go see and touch another dream watch then dream for another grail watch.

That's definitly one way to deal with it.

 By: nafetS : October 6th, 2019-02:59
On the other hand the other rattrapante watches in my grail list have serious disadvantages compared to this one so they wouldn't be able to keep me from buying this one.

Thereโ€˜s actually one other in my grail list and two honorable mentions.

 By: nafetS : October 6th, 2019-07:55
The other grail double split would be the Patek 5370P. If I would rate purely the watch, it would beat the FPJ with its finishing, enamel dial and pure beauty. Taking into consideration my collection and the price point, Iโ€˜d rather buy the FPJ rattrapante... 

๐Ÿ˜‹ I will probably sell one or two other watches from my collection now.

 By: nafetS : October 6th, 2019-03:02
I want to keep the number of watches in my collection stable. So you could buy one of those. Not necessarily heavily Discounted, though.

When I see the wrists hot It makes complete sense.

It looks perfect on your arm! I think you will be very happy with this watch. huge congratulations. I am so happy for you Please post a lot of pictures and tell us about your experiences with it. It looks like the panels of the Paris Boutique in the backg...

It's a beautiful watch, congratulations! For a split second watch it sure is incredible value, especially when you compare it to the 5370P like you did! Enjoy it!
