The Logical One

Sep 13, 2020,15:23 PM

I look at a lot of watches, I’ve had a lot of watches on my wrist over the years.  Like most of you, every new city, every trip, I’m always going to poke my head in the AD or other dealer to what’s laying around.  And I usually take pictures. 

Just working through the phone for some old pictures today I came across so many watch photos (from the above mentioned excursions).  I thought I would share some.

First up some wrist time with Romain Gauthier’s Logical One.  Two flavors, one for me and one for my rap star alter ego! 

The plain jane version you see here I seriously considered buying.  But logic (hah!) prevailed, it’s too big for me.  And at those prices even a little too big is not acceptable. 

Some eye candy:

Yes, there are some pieces with stones which work very well.

Two others that come to mind right now are the FP Journe Vagabondage II in PT with baguettes on the bezel. A stunning watch. And there’s a version of the DB28 Blue which is a knockout. Both of these watches are owned by forum members and I believe have be... 

Quite possible.

But the last several years it’s been the opposite. I’d say 7-10 years ago, this watch would have fit OK. I was wearing 44mm and 47mm (at a stretch), the 44mm looked fine though.

There is something so right about that watch with

...the diamond bezel!

It’s one a few modern watches which left me blown away.

The level of finishing is super high as you know. The take on fusee and chain, technically interesting always and of course being front a center on the dial side far more engaging than other variants. There is a lot to like.

Indeed a superb piece

For me definitely without diamond bezel but there is of course a market for this also. What a gorgeous piece, congrats to Romain for a fantastic design and architecture of the movement. Romain a real gentleman for the ones who know him. I still think abou... 

That’s right Mike, I’ve met him a few times and up to now (for me) he is the most likable man in indie watchmaking.

Generous with his time in my experience, happy to engage. But unfortunately not so nice as to tell me that the successor to the Logical One will be in a smaller case and it will be just for you !

thanks for the nice photos

I don't think it is too big for you... I think comfort is more important. I also prefer the plain version...

The case itself would be OK, I’ve worn similar sized case. But I feel the lugs are just a tad loo long.

And as I mentioned above, this is very serious money everything should be perfect without question.

One of my favorite indie brands and the L1 is a top piece

I was also lucky enough to strap these two amazing watches on my wrist at BW last year.

It was two years or more when the first photo was taken and I had consider that watch.

Concluding it was too big I did say to myself I must own one of his pieces at some point. I still hope to one day. The Micro Rotor is the right size for me, but I have yet to see a variation which interests me.

The micro rotor is a beautiful and amazing watch .

I also hope to add a RG at some point in the near future 🙏🏻. My absolute favorite is still the L1 .
